LARA POSTS FIRST PREGNANCY PHOTO.... POST ROCKET'S BIRTH

Lara Bingle couldn’t have been more secretive about her pregnancy if she had tried. Oh, sorry, she did.

She and Sam Worthington didn’t announce the happy news, kept her body totally under wraps and seemed to revel in teasing her fans with a few quite vague online posts.

There was a Gritty Pretty photoshoot, and of course the underwater black bikini shots from Palm Sands — not forgetting the odd showbiz mag cover taken from a moving car a kilometre away.

But however many followers stayed loyal during that slightly surreal nine months of her life have at last been treated to a classic baby-bump shot.

Bingle put up this shot of her photographing her belly in the mirror and revealed it was taken in London when she was 28 weeks gone.

The 27-year-old eventually gave birth in Cedars-Sinai Hospital LA in late March, even know we can’t be sure of the exact date.

What we do know is that she continued the rather out-there theme of modern celebrities by calling the little lamb Rocket Zot.

And she’s subsequently been happy to be photographed taking him out for a stroll around New York.

But starved as we were of baby-bump pictures, we can only hope for more to help us piece together a most mysterious pregnancy.

LARA DEFENDS HER DECISION TO NAME HER SON ROCKET ZOT

Lara Bingle has hit back at critics who ridiculed her for giving her newborn son an unusual name.

Bingle has taken to Twitter and Facebook today to explain the choice of her son’s middle name “Zot”, saying it is a tribute to her late father.

“My son’s middle name IS a respectful nod to my late father, whose nickname was affectionately, Zot,” the 27-year-old said in one of her posts.

Her father Graham died after a long battle with cancer in 2008.

The comments were in response to Daily Telegraph columnist Annette Sharp’s article Lara Bingle doesn’t care a zot for baby name traditions published today, talking about why Bingle and her partner, Australian actor Sam Worthington, chose to call their son Rocket Zot.

In the article, Sharp writes: “Zot, online urban dictionaries tell us, means to ‘zap, destroy, kill’ and, in Ontario, Canada, is a term used to define a spitball thrown at a ceiling.”

Bingle took aim at Sharp in a number of tweets and on Facebook to defend why the celebrity couple chose that name.
