Commenting on her decision to have bees as extras, Emily Mueller, a beekeeper and the owner of Mueller Honey Bee and Rescue, said:

People think I’m putting my baby at harm. But bees are gentle, and I hope my bee belly helps people see that they aren’t as scary as you might think.

The 34-year-old, who also has three more children, described her experience as intense and spiritual. The baby supposed to be Muelle’sr last child but, unfortunately, it wasn’t meant for him to be born.

Tragic loss

In November Emily shared sad news – she suffered a stillbirth. Mueller described what happened in a heartbreaking Facebook post.

Our baby has died. Our baby will never come home with us. This wonderful rainbow baby we were blessed with has now become a storm in our lives.

After going to the hospital, Emily and her husband, Ryan, found out that their son died just days before the due date.

New beginnings

Now Emily and Ryan are expecting again. To celebrate her new baby, the mom-of-three took part in another bee-filled maternity shoot. This time she posed with 16,000 bees on her head.

I didn’t want to do the same thing I did last time. I wanted to do something more unique. I truly wanted to represent the amazing miracle of how a woman’s body is so amazing and we’re all a goddess being able to give birth. In my mind, I wanted to be a symbolic queen bee.

Emily discovered she was pregnant in February, just three months after losing her son. The bee-lover is due this autumn and we wish her the best of luck!
