Inside Emily DiDonato's Aspen Babymoon

The SI Swimsuit model jetted off to the mountains for a little vacay before welcoming her baby.

Although she is expecting a baby girl this December, Emily DiDonato hasn't slowed down one bit. The SI Swimsuit model has been promoting her new skincare line Covey, designing a jewelry collection with ARGENTO VIVO, and attending events in the Hamptons. So it made sense the entrepreneur would want a little downtime before welcoming her bundle of joy. And you know what that means: babymoon. But DiDonato and her husband Kyle Peterson didn't jet off to an exotic beach. Instead, they opted for a mountain getaway in Aspen, Colo.

The 30-year-old posted just two photos on Instagram from the relaxing trip, but they gave a little insight into how the mom-to-be was spending her time. "What baby wants, baby gets," she captioned one photo holding a giant hamburger from the White House Tavern. And two days later, she shared another glowing pic on a quaint street, captioning it, "​Ready to retire in Aspen."

In fact, Colorado is a very special place for DiDonato, who made her SI Swimsuit debut in 2013. She met her husband on a flight to Vail, and they ultimately decided to get married in the Colorado mountains. They exchanged vows on Skiers Bridge at the Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch, a spot under two hours away from their Aspen babymoon destination.

Now, the magazine star is back home in New York City. She recently posted a photo from a David Yurman shoot for Net-A-Porter and will no doubt be sharing more details of her pregnancy, too. DiDonato has been very candid throughout her journey, answering fan questions about everything from nursery decor to how she's feeling.

"The first trimester was really much harder," she previously confessed. "I thought I was going to breeze through this. The first three weeks, I had no symptoms, so I was like, 'This is fine. I don't know why everyone hates it so bad.' Now, I'm dead."

Recently, the model shared how she's dealing with stretch marks and mood swings and details of her nursery. "I'm trying to be honest about my experience and my journey," she recently told fans during an Instagram Q&A. "I'm trying to take it day by day. I know some women love being pregnant, feeling great, and energized. That's not the case for me. So, just being honest."
