Whilst most models are busy preparing for New York Fashion Week’s first shows tomorrow, Erin O’Connor will happily be putting her feet up for once after revealing her pregnancy at InStyle Magazine’s pre-BAFTA party last night.
The 35-year-old model looked radiant dressed in a long, black Jenny Packham dress with embellished neckline that highlighted her beautiful baby bump.
This maternal instinct in her comes as no surprise as the British model has spent many years looking after the welfare of young models, as well as looking after her protégés in Naomi Campbell’s model show The Face.
This will be her first baby, although she will not reveal the name of the father with whom she lives in New York. However, she told You magazine last year that "[he is] funny and interesting and wears a suit every day to work, which seems so exotic and outlandish to me that ironically it makes him my equivalent of wild rock 'n' roll." Erin also told them that "he's also easy to love and I hope we'll have a baby — lots of them, if we're lucky — together. It's a nice feeling to have found The One at long last. We have half a dozen godchildren between us, so I like to think we have some idea of what's required for parenthood."
It seems like they will be a very happy family, and with Erin standing at almost 6 ft. and her mystery man at 6’3”, it will certainly have height on its side — and with Erin to go by, striking looks as well.
We wish her all the best with her new baby!
