Rihanna made history at New York Fashion Week on September 12th by compiling one of the most diverse and body-positive fashion shows the event has ever seen. Rihanna cast dozens of models of all shapes and sizes to present her new lingerie collection, including not one, but two pregnant models. And we later discovered that one of those models was experiencing contractions during the runway presentation.
TMZ originally reported that model Slick Woods was rushed to a nearby hospital the second she stepped off the runway, which was later confirmed by the model herself. On Friday, September 14th, Woods announced on Instagram that she was indeed in labor while she calmly marched down the runway.
Woods previously announced that her son’s name is Saphir and the baby’s father is fellow model Adonis Bosso. Woods told Elle U.K. that she and Bosso are elated.
Many women hide their pregnancies from potential employers for fear of discrimination, which makes it so much better that Rihanna embraced Woods’ due-date.
Wow, as if we weren’t obsessed with Rihanna enough. Congrats Woods and thank you Rihanna for being a progressive dream boss.
