Popular supermodel, Iskra Lawrence has revealed to her nearly 5 million Instagram followers that she is 17-weeks pregnant and expecting her first child with partner, and former Rugby player, Philip Payne.
The 29-year-old plus-size model Iskra Lawrence had on Tuesday taken to her Instagram page to post some photos holding up a pregnancy test kit with her boyfriend, Philip planting a kiss on her cheek, and holding up a peace sign with the other hand.
Iskra Lawrence posted the photos with this caption describing how happy she is for the great news. She said:
“It’s not just the two of us anymore, we’re soon to be a family of 3 ❤️ When @Philipapayne ran out and got us six boxes of #ad @firstresponsepregnancy Early Result tests, our lives changed forever.
We were so shocked when we saw those two lines and we knew for sure we were having a baby🤱🏼 Right now we’re 17 weeks and 3 days pregnant! 🤰🏼
And I can’t wait to share with you what these last 4 months have been like.
I’ve never been more excited to meet anyone, and Philip and I are in love with our mini baby P bump 🥰
I’m well aware of the struggles many women face with infertility and how lucky I am. That is why I’ll be giving away $10,000 to help and support one of you in your pregnancy journey (more deets coming soon). Thank you so much #firstresponsepregnancy for supporting me and all of the work you do to support couples struggling to conceive. It’s something very close to my heart with many of my best friends and family members experiencing these challenges.
Can’t believe I’m finally telling the whole damn world our magical news sending you all lots of love xx
Iskra Lawrence’s boyfriend, Philip also shared some photos on his page, as he celebrates the good news, saying:
“Who would’ve thought❤️…. I always look at you and think , God why me? How did I get this blessed, what on earth did I do to deserve this much happiness and favor? I’m entirely in awe at his grace. So much has changed so fast in such a short amount of time and I’d be lying if I didn’t say it’s all been taking me for a spin lol so many emotions, excited, scared AF, vulnerable, questions, Do I have what it takes? Am I ready? How do i become the best dad?
Then I think about you…and the way you look at me…the way you encourage me the way you lift me up when work is wearing on me, how you always tell me how proud and happy you are that I’m yours and how much you appreciate the human I am, flaws and all…even though I’m far from perfect, you love with such a pure unconditional love and that in itself gives me the confidence and courage to know without a shadow of a doubt I’m going be the best parent I can possibly be because I have the best partner I could possibly have.
You’re going to be an incredible mother @iskra and I’m going to give you and this little soul everything I have. WE ARE GOING TO KILL IIIIT!!!!😁❤️” he said.
Fans are just as excited as the mom-to-be for her new addition, so much so that she can’t keep up with the comments. “Ok I’m trying to keep up with all your beautiful comments.. but my phone about to die and I’m going dizzy plus baby momma needs a snack,” she wrote. She also scheduled an IG live at 4 PM ET. Some of her famous friends including Demi Lovato and “Riverdale” actress Vanessa Morgan have already filled up her comments too. “Omg congrats!!!” Lovato and Morgan both replied.
The model has been linked to her former professional rugby player Philip Payne for the past year. Iskra and Philip recently sat down and adorably retold the story of how they first met, and like most couples, they have a different version of events. He claimed that before he even met Iskra, he labeled her as his “type.” They ended up meeting unexpectedly and the rest is history.
