Aerie Model Iskra Lawrence and Boyfriend Philip Payne Welcome First Child: 'Baby P Has Arrived'

The British model, who has long been an outspoken advocate for body positivity, first revealed her pregnancy news back in November.

“It’s not just the two of us anymore, we’re soon to be a family of 3,” she wrote on Instagram at the time, alongside a shot of herself holding up her positive pregnancy test.

“We were so shocked when we saw those two lines and we knew for sure we were having a baby,” she added. “I’ve never been more excited to meet anyone, and Philip and I are in love with our mini baby P bump.”

Earlier this month, the model also revealed that she was grateful she was already planning on having a home water birth before the start of the global coronavirus pandemic.

“I am grateful I’ve always wanted a home birth (my mom didn’t use drugs/epidural so I’m down for the challenge),” she wrote on Instagram. “I know with everything going on right now more of you maybe considering it instead of hospital.”

While spending time at home with her love, Lawrence also made it a priority to spend time doing things that brought a smile to her face — and encouraged her followers to do the same.

Lawrence and Payne first met in January 2018 while attending a Grammy Awards party in New York City.

“I was not meant to be there. The universe brought us together because I was in L.A. the day before,” she said in a YouTube video titled “Our Love Story.”

As luck would have it, that same day, Payne recalled that “somebody asked me what my type was and I showed them her but … I had no idea I would [end up] meeting her that day.”

However, their romance didn’t get off the ground until that October, when they reconnected in Paris by chance — and before long, they “both realized that we make each other so much better and bring out the best in each other,” Lawrence said.
