NRL Footy Show star Erin Molan has schooled co-star Beau Ryan on the etiquette of posing next to a pregnant woman.
On Wednesday night the pair posed for cameras at Channel Nine's NRL season launch with Beau jokingly cradling Erin's four-month baby bump.
But speaking to The Kyle And Jackie O Show this morning Erin revealed she wasn't entirely comfortable with Beau's very hands-on pose.

'This isn't cool': Erin Molan hits out at fellow NRL Footy Show star Beau Ryan after he awkwardly cradled her baby bump while on the red-carpet after he joked that she was 'no longer answering his calls
Erin's revelation came during a chat with Beau who was taking over hosting duties from Kyle Sandilands who was off sick.
'We had to get a photo together in front of that wall and I'm like, how do I stand? Do I stand holding the bump?' Beau explained. 'What do I do?'
Beau went on to say that he started behind her with two hands on and she said, 'This isn't cool' and I'm like, 'What are we doing?''
It was then that Erin pipped up and told the hosts that Beau has asked her if she found the pose 'awkward'.
'Well, not if you're the father,' she said.
