Rihanna trotted out new clothing designs at her Savage X Fenty show at New York Fashion Week in New York City, but it was model Slick Woods who stole the show. Moments after walking the runway in pasties, pantyhose and barely-there lingerie, the pregnant 22-year-old went into labor.

“Slick Woods went into labor almost right after she stepped off the runway,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly of the show, held on Wednesday, September 12, at the Brooklyn Navy Yards. “Paramedics were called to the show and took Slick to the nearest hospital.”

Woods posted images of herself from the event to Instagram on Friday, September 14, writing, “A lewk, 14 hours of labor, and a king is born. This is the face of a WOMAN in labor, we hold s—t 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.”

According to TMZ, the first outlet to report the news, the baby is named Saphir, and his father is model Adonis Bosso.

Woods, born Simone Thompson, was a homeless teen when she was discovered three years ago. Since then, she has modeled for Yeezy, Fenty Puma and Fenty Beauty.

“Bitches kissing my ass right now, and it’s so funny because the same people would step over me while I was sleeping on the street,” she told Fashionista in April. “When it comes to modeling, I’m really around so that I can ensure a spot for a girl that actually does dream of this, and she might just be four years old right now.”
