OPINION: 'Euphoria' Actress Chloe Cherry’s Fake Maternity Shoot Clashes with Her Porn Persona

The ex-porn performer’s new baby bump pics stirred pregnancy rumors


Chloe Cherry, formerly known as Chloe Couture, is a 24-year-old actress and model. She launched her career by starring in over two hundred pornographic movies, amassing 125 million views on PornHub and thousands of subscribers on her explicit OnlyFans page.

In 2020, Chloe scored a breakout role playing a heroin-addicted prostitute named Faye in Sam Levinson’s teen serial drama Euphoria on HBO Max. In her interview with tmrw, she said that landing the role “felt like divine timing.” Chloe has since quit performing in porn, citing the toll sex work took on her relationships with family and friends.

Even during her days in porn, Chloe expressed an interest in entering the fashion world. Her career has fortuitously elevated into high fashion modeling and big name ad campaigns.

Most recently, she was featured on a cover for tmrw magazine’s 44th edition, celebrating the music and culture publication’s 10th anniversary. She is pictured by Marina Vengut topless, sitting on a mechanical bull, wearing towering platform stilettos and wielding a whip behind her back. Most importantly, she dons her signature blank, unassuming expression with glassy sanpaku eyes and pillowy lips.

Some of the photos Chloe shared from the tmrw shoot show her sporting a prosthetic baby bump, bizarrely paired with a dangly belly button ring, and high-heeled Crocs. The model’s hair is slicked back into a high ponytail, and her eyes pop through neon pink mascara.

The Instagram post prompted congratulatory comments, alongside questions about who fathered her child. However, Chloe’s pregnant belly was merely an artistic choice for the editorial shoot.

Artistic director and set designer Andrea Garcia seemed to get a kick out of the puzzled reactions to the photos, recently posting screenshots of confused tweets on her Instagram story. While the faux baby bump fooled some, one Twitter user praised the SFX artist: “Whoever did that pregnant belly on Chloe Cherry deserves awards.”

The tmrw shoot unearthed a dissonance in depicting a popular porn actress carrying a child. Her baby bump photos were possibly intended to start pregnancy rumors, but it could also provoke deeper thought about Chloe Cherry’s shift in career path. Her career is evolving beyond her background in porn – but if sex sells well enough, she may regress back to the adult entertainment industry instead. Only time will tell.
