She may be pregnant with her third child but even so Uma Thurman has managed to put everyone to shame as she unveils her baby bump on the beach.
The Kill Bill star soaked up the sun as she pulled up to a bay in St Barts over the weekend, showing off her pregnant figure for the first time since she announced the happy news last month.
Uma's body looked toned and healthy as she walked along the beach in a black bikini as onlookers watched on.

The 41-year-old actress was spotted by some nearby swimmers as she enjoyed her holiday with 13-year-old daughter Maya, who lay on the public beach while her mum took a dip in the water.
Uma was seen affectionately holding her bump as she paddled through the sea, before taking to the sand to put on a sun hat and read a book.
Thurman's manager only confirmed to the MailOnline she is expecting a daughter with her businessman boyfriend Arpa Busson a few weeks ago.

The Hollywood star has since stepped out in New York, but she was covered up due to the cold weather in a loose caped coat.
But she has been enjoying some down time more recently as she prepares for impending motherhood again and took the opportunity to enjoy the rays in her swimsuit.
The star and her daughter pulled up to the bay in a small boat as she had a towel wrapped around her.

But after she moored up and emptied the boat of her supplies for the day, she took to the sand for some relaxation.
She obviously felt comfortable with her pregnant body as she showed off her figure, aware of photographers in sight – and for good reason as she revealed her impressive physique.
And while she spent the day on Friday walking on the bay in her bikini, a day later she opted to enjoy a day on a yacht.
The actress showed off her glowing body again, this time in a striped swimsuit which she wore as she took a dip.

Uma has recently spoken of her happiness with her personal life.
Earlier this year she told Harper's Bazaar magazine: 'I have something I would really like to express about my love life,' she said.
'I’m happier with it now than I’ve been in many, many years. Yes I’m trying to have as peaceful a personal life as possible.'
