Model goes into labour hours after runway

PREGNANT model Slick Woods' baby is ready for his New York Fashion Week debut.

The 22-year-old model reportedly went into labour on Wednesday night following her appearance on the runway for Savage x Fenty, which is Rihanna's lingerie line.

According to TMZ, after strutting her stuff in a strappy teddy, thigh-highs and pasties at the show in Brooklyn, Woods was met by paramedics backstage who rushed her to the nearest hospital.

The face of Fenty Beauty, whose real name is Simone Thompson, revealed two months ago that she is pregnant with her first child, a boy who will be named Saphir.
