Happily-ever-after stories typically end with a kiss, but these fairytale princesses got to go beyond the honeymoon phase and experience pregnancy and new motherhood, thanks to Russian artist Oksana Pashchenko’s latest fan art.
The Disney fan (who is currently on maternity leave) has been drawing iconic princesses for two years now, dreaming up their next chapters. She incorporates sweet details that are nods to the lives that they led before they got the prince ― and the prince’s progeny.
In an interview with Bored Panda, Pashchenko explained how this series came to be: “I myself was already pregnant and since it was a magical time, I thought, why not remake the Disney princesses as a continuation of the happy ending to this tale?”
Here are some of her new and expectant moms, complete with royal fathers-to-be. We’d like to give a special shout-out to Aladdin for rocking that dad bod!
