Slick Woods & Her Baby Bump Are Taking Over New York City

We knew when Slick Woods announced her pregnancy on Instagram, writing "just when I got tired of raising you n*ggas, God blessed me with my own," the rebellious model wasn't going to suddenly switch things up just because she was with child. And she's certainly not playing it safe when it comes to dressing her growing body. The 22-year-old is currently making New York Fashion Week her own personal runway — but what else would you expect from someone Rihanna counts as a muse?
Woods is expecting a son with fellow model Adonis Bosso, who she tells Elle UK, they will name "Saphir, a play on September's birthstone, the month the baby is due." Singer Erykah Badu, who doubles as a doula, is reportedly guiding Woods through her first birth. "She’s a mummy role model," Woods tells the magazine. "A mother I look up to, who kills her shit and is a boss-ass bitch."
The expectant mother got her start in the fashion industry in 2015 when she was cast by Kanye West for his Yeezy Season 2 lookbook. Since then, Woods has gone on to become the face of Rihanna's Fenty x Puma line, and we're curious if the model will appear at Fashion Week, in an official capacity, say, for Savage x Fenty? In the meantime, please enjoy these photos of the mum-to-be showing off a new side of maternity style.
