Many Disney princess movies end with the main character marrying her love interest. And since marriage usually leads to parenthood, a lot of fans can’t help but wonder what Disney princesses would look like if they were mothers. Though Ariel is the only official Disney princess so far to have had a child, talented artists like Oksana Paschenko, Isaiah Stephens, Calmingscene, yellb, and MissxAnonymous have already created several fan art pieces depicting Disney princesses as moms. Check out the slideshow below to see the journey of your favorite Disney princesses into motherhood, starting from pregnancy, delivery, and all the way to child-rearing.
#1 Pregnant Ariel with Eric
Sometime between the original 1989 The Little Mermaid movie and its 2000 direct-to-video sequel The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea, Ariel gets pregnant with her husband Eric.

As revealed in The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea, the couple’s child is named Melody.

#4 Pregnant Cinderella with Prince Charming

#5 Pregnant Esmeralda with Phoebus
Since Esmeralda is living in Paris with her husband Phoebus, it isn’t surprising to see them have her maternity shoot near the iconic Eiffel Tower. Glowing in her teal maternity dress with cape sleeves, Esmeralda smilingly holds her baby bump, as a dashingly-dressed Phoebus presses his ear against it. In the 2002 direct-to-video film The Hunchback of Notre Dame II, Esmeralda and Phoebus have a son named Zephyr.

With Li Shang’s assistance, an expectant Mulan reaches one of the highest peaks of the Great Wall of China. To celebrate their little win, the husband and wife pose for a photo that highlights Mulan’s baby bump.
#9 Pregnant Pocahontas with John Smith
Though Pocahontas didn’t end up as John Smith’s wife in her eponymous Disney movies, the two characters are reimagined as spouses with a baby on the way in this fan art.

Rapunzel gets pregnant with her husband Eugene months after tying the knot at the end of the 2011 short film Tangled Ever After.

Stunning in her green chiffon maternity dress, Tiana, along with her husband Naveen, visits St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans, Louisiana to pray for her upcoming delivery. After the mass, the prince and princess of Maldonia flash their biggest smiles as they pose for a photo in front of the oldest cathedral still in use in America.

#17 Jasmine and Aladdin with their son
Dressed in matching shirts, shorts, and sneakers, Jasmine, Aladdin, and their son step out for some shopping. Though already a big boy, the couple’s son still loves to be carried around, something that the prince of Agrabah doesn’t see as a problem.
#18 Mulan with her baby
Mulan and her baby are spending some quality time together near the shrine dedicated to her family’s ancestors. Dressed in a Mushu-inspired hooded overall jumpsuit, Mulan’s little one is flashing his cutest smile as he sits on his mother’s sturdy shoulders.
#19 Pregnant Jasmine with Aladdin
As mentioned above, Russian illustrator Oksana Paschenko isn’t the only artist out there who has reimagined Disney princesses as moms. American artist Isaiah Stephens has also created a collection of drawings depicting Disney characters’ journey into parenthood. One of his works in that art series is this beautiful illustration of Jasmine and Aladdin under the night sky. While the princess of Agrabah looks a bit tired, Aladdin’s excitement about their upcoming child makes all her sacrifices worth it.
#20 Pregnant Mulan with Li Shang
Mulan and Li Shang can’t wait for the arrival of their little bundle of joy. And though it’s Mulan who’s physically carrying their child, this fan art shows that Li Shang makes sure that his wife will never feel alone throughout her pregnancy.
#21 Ariel with her child
Ariel looks so done trying to feed her playful son. She, however, can’t simply quit, as the princess of Atlantica seems to know by now that being a mom is a life-long responsibility.
#22 Aurora in labor with Phillip
Aurora is sweating and tearing up at the same time as she delivers her baby in the hospital. Though Phillip will never know the extreme pain his wife is feeling at the very moment, his mere presence definitely makes Aurora’s childbirth a bit more bearable.

#25 Pocahontas with her baby
Taking care of an infant is probably one of the most tiring stages in raising a child, so it isn’t surprising to see Pocahontas fall asleep while looking after her newborn baby. Pocahontas may be one of the most energetic Disney princesses, but this fan art shows that she has just found her match.
#26 Rapunzel and Eugene with their baby
Rapunzel and Eugene’s baby has just pooped. And though it’s the latter’s turn to replace their child’s diaper, the princess of Corona willingly does the task once again, as her husband can’t really take the smell.
#27 Tiana and Naveen with their baby
Tiana can’t help but giggle in the corner when her son starts to pee the moment he’s picked up by his dad, Naveen. Though the prince of Maldonia is obviously unamused, it won’t take long before he realizes that experiences like this are all part of rearing a child.
#28 Pregnant Jasmine
American artist Calmingscene has also created a series of fan art depicting Disney princesses as moms. But unlike Oksana Paschenko and Isaiah Stephens’ works, Calmingscene’s illustrations look more cartoonish than realistic. As seen in this fan art, Calmingscene drew Jasmine with an excessively huge baby bump, breasts, and butt.
#29 Pregnant Aurora
Pregnant Aurora looks very anxious in this artwork by American artist yellb. While we can’t exactly tell what the princess is feeling, the way she holds and looks at her big baby belly suggests that she’s started to experience some contractions.
