Sophia Cahill, a former Miss Wales and now a glamour model, shocked the audience at the London Fashion Week, when she posed nude. The problem was Cahill is nine months pregnant.
The mother of Bailey, nine, is pregnant with her second child with an ex-boyfriend. The couple split 11 weeks after she declared her pregnancy.
"I need to work to pay the bills and it's really tough doing it alone. This time I had to provide for by unborn baby and Bailey. I had to keep working. There were gasps when I went down the catwalk, but it didn't bother me. A pregnant body is beautiful and shouldn't be hidden. Some women feel fat and frumpy with a bump - but I feel sexy and womanly. Men tell me I look gorgeous and sexy," Sophia is quoted as saying by Mail Online.
The mother-to-be walked exuding confidence, to Lana Del Rey's "Born to Die", with a serene face, while the audience sat trying to get over their initial shock. She later said to Wales Online that a pregnant woman could be "strong and beautiful".
"She was one person I knew would be more than happy to get her kit off. I thought it would be nice she would be pregnant for the show. You never see that kind of thing in fashion," Robyn Coles, the Welsh designer for whom Cahill modelled, was quoted as saying by Daily Mail.
