London Fashion Week is straight up giving us a new world. It had men walking the ramp flaunting baby bumps. Bizarre much? 

Well, no, these men weren't really pregnant, they were just giving us a glimpse of an unseen world with expecting men. It was Chinese designer Xander Zhou's show where 'pregnant' male models walked the ramp with T-shirts which said, 'New World Baby,' cradling their fake bumps — lest they were mistaken for beer bellies.

The brand took to Instagram to give us a glimpse of the show. It shared a picture of a man flaunting his baby bump with his T-shirt partially lifted up.

The caption of the picture read, "At Supernatural, Extraterrestrial & Co, we're prepared to welcome a future of male pregnancy." High five to that!

Fashion brands such as Opening Ceremony, Glossier, and Eckhaus Latta have previously promoted male pregnancy, but this is the first time the concept made its way to a fashion week. And we are pretty intrigued and glad that this will open doors to some pertinent discussions for the future. 

Well done, guys!
