Slick Woods was having contractions during the Fenty runway show.

The 22-year-old model gave birth to her first son Saphir, who she shares with fellow model Adonis Bosso, on Friday (14.09.18) - and has revealed that she went into labour during Rihanna's New York Fashion Week Savage x Fenty Lingerie Presentation in Brooklyn.

Sharing a photo of herself during the show on Instagram, she wrote: "A lewk, 14 hours of labor, and A king is born.

"This is the face of a WOMAN IN LABOR, we hold shit down most of us don't even know how much we're going through, I'm here to say I CAN DO WHATEVER THE F**K I WANT WHENEVER THE F**K I WANT AND SO CAN YOU. (sic)"

It was reported that an ambulance was called moments after the model stepped off the runway.

Slick rose to fame two years ago after featuring in a campaign for Kanye West's Yeezy brand and since then has appeared in several international editions of Vogue and a campaign for Calvin Klein.

The model stunned on the catwalk wearing a black string one-piece, gold glittering sheer stockings and pointed nipple covers - and the ensemble was paired with chunky gold hoops and a black velvet headband.

It's not surprising the star decided to walk whilst pregnant, as she has previously said her pregnancy has made her view her body in a totally different way.

She said: "I now see my body as something that nourishes my child.

"I used to treat it as an accessory. I have a newfound appreciation for who I am as a woman, my body, and what I can do. I'm happy I'm experiencing it so young."
