A model has confirmed that she gave birth to a baby boy just hours after appearing in Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty lingerie runway show at New York Fashion Week.
Slick Woods, born Simone Thompson, is a 22-year-old model from Minnesota who’s modelled for Vogue, Calvin Klein and Marc Jacobs.
Earlier this week, Woods appeared on the catwalk for Rihanna’s new Savage x Fenty lingerie collection, alongside a diverse array of models that included Gigi and Bella Hadid, Duckie Thot and Joan Smalls.
In July this year, Woods revealed on Instagram that she was expecting her first child with fellow model Adonis Bosso.
She’s now informed her 728,000 Instagram followers that she gave birth to a baby boy… 14 hours after strutting her stuff on the catwalk in heels and lingerie.
“A lewk, 14 hours of labour, and a king is born,” she wrote on Instagram.
“This is the face of a WOMAN IN LABOUR, we hold s**t down most of us don’t even know how much we’re going through.”
Many people have been sending their congratulations to the model in the comments, including fellow models Jourdan Dunn and Leomie Anderson.
“WOW! This is ICONIC!!!!” Dunn wrote. “Welcome to motherhood my love.”
The official Instagram account for the Savage x Fenty lingerie collection also left a comment, which read: “YESSSS!! Things you did: THAT!”
Woods’ appearance in the runway show was highly praised on social media, with several people expressing their admiration for Rihanna’s decision to feature heavily pregnant models.
“I don’t think I’ve ever seen another lingerie collection use very visibly pregnant models before! This fashion show is diverse in so many different ways,” one person wrote on Twitter.
“You were in labour at this time and looked like the unfazed goddess that you are! Congratulations on everything!” another person tweeted.
