A lewk, 14 hours of labor, and A king is born. This is the face of a WOMAN IN LABOR, we hold shit down most of us don’t even know how much we’re going through, I’m here to say I CAN DO WHATEVER THE FUCK I WANT WHENEVER THE FUCK I WANT AND SO CAN YOU. Thank you @qualityresusqueen and the Fenty family for taking such good care of us
“You introduced me to a more mainstream level of exposure,” Woods wrote in the letter shared on Rihanna’s Instagram. “People loved the idea of Slick, but you gave me countless platforms to let people fall in love with who I actually am. You made inclusivity cool, and that’s revolutionary.”
The model continued, “You have my loyalty until the end of time. My gratitude for the growth, love, and support you’ve put in my life will never subside.”
Rihanna thanked the young model for her letter. “Thank you for these beautiful words. . .You have been just as significant to my platform sis! And you bout to knock motherhood out the park!”
