Model goes into labor at Rihanna fashion show

Rihanna has always been one to make big power moves.

She did win Humanitarian of the Year at Harvard University last year after all....

"BadGirlRiRi" has been recently working hard to incorporate women of all types in her namesake brand, Fenty, and people are starting to take notice.

The 30-year-old singer-turned-businesswoman has a cosmetics company called Fenty Beauty whose motto is "beauty for all," and includes makeup for 40 different skin shades.

That being said, it was no surprise that her New York Fashion Week "Savage x Fenty" show, which debuted the Fenty brand's new lingerie line, included a very diverse group of women - including two pregnant models.

The Barbados-native wanted her fashion show to be a "celebration of women", and she also went on to say that she thinks "it's a shame women have to feel insecure or self-conscious about how their bodies look," according to Vogue,

TMZ later reported that one of the models, Slick Woods, was strutting down the runway nine months pregnant, and went into labor at the show backstage. The model posted on Instagram later that after 14 hours of labor "a king is born."

In addition to usual suspect models like Bella and Gigi Hadid, the show lineup also included a diverse range of skin types and at least one plus-size model.
