TMZ reported that the model was taken to the nearest hospital by paramedics straightaway after she stepped off the runway.  Woods walked the runway in a strappy body harness which she accessorized with a pair of black pasties and naked, printed fishnet stockings.

In early July, Woods revealed her pregnancy with a photo unveiling her large baby bump on her Instagram. Slick, whose real name is Simone Thompson, can be seen sitting on the side of a pool in a striped swimsuit in which her growing baby bump is clearly visible. "In good company," she captioned the snap.

Back in July, Woods revealed singer Erykah Badu would serve as her doula and she would be breastfeeding her son in an interview with Elle UK. At the time, she also revealed that her son's name, Saphir, is a nod to September's birthstone. She even joked to the outlet about an ultrasound saying "I saw my baby's penis!"

Congratulations to the couple!
