Iskra Lawrence revealed she’s got a bun in the oven! The 29-year-old announced her pregnancy to her nearly 5 million Instagram followers with several adorable photos on Tuesday. Showing off her First Response pregnancy test, the model smiled with excitement as her boyfriend, Philip Payne, planted a sweet kiss on her cheek and grabbed her growing belly. Throwing up a peace sign, the blonde mom-to-be described just how happy she is for their upcoming new addition. “It’s not just the two of us anymore, we’re soon to be a family of 3,” Iskra Lawrence began her post.
Saying they bought 6 boxes of pregnancy tests to be sure, the British model revealed she’s currently 17 weeks pregnant. “When @Philipapayne ran out and got us six boxes of #ad @firstresponsepregnancy Early Result tests, our lives changed forever,” she wrote. Stating that they were “so shocked” when the lines revealed positive, Iskra added they both felt comfortable with the results because “we knew for sure we were having a baby.” The expecting parents are already attached to their little one, which they call “mini baby P.” She added, “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.”
Making sure to be sensitive to those who struggle with fertility issues, Iskra Lawrence called herself “lucky” and offered to donate $10k to one follower on their pregnancy journey. While she didn’t reveal the guidelines, she promised more details would be 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,” she added. Ending her pregnancy message, she wrote, “Can’t believe I’m finally telling the whole damn world our magical news sending you all lots of love xx #2MeansYes #preggo #pregnancyannouncement #17weeks #pregnant.”
Iskra Lawrence’s 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.
At only 5’9″, Iskra Lawrence is a powerhouse in the modeling industry and holds her own alongside other plus-size vixens like Ashley Graham and Tess Holliday. She encourages women to be comfortable in their bodies and often flaunts her famous curves whether she’s in teeny tiny two-piece or just lounging in her underwear. 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.
