In true model style, British model and actress Adwoa Aboah announced her pregnancy via the Met Gala red carpet last night, as she revealed her burgeoning baby bump, nestled between a crimson two piece.

The Vogue cover girl and Top Boy star was radiant in a scarlet design by H&M, comprised of a full balloon skirt (not too dissimilar from the Schiaparelli skirt worn by fellow bump-barer Sienna Miller for the Vogue World red carpet last year) and ruffled red shrug top.

The outfit was completed with a bedazzled red bra, silk crimson pumps and a glowing face of minimal makeup, save for her striped red lip. She was one of multiple attendees dressed by the Swedish brand, alongside fellow model Paloma Elsesser, Quannah Chasinghorse, Stefon Diggs and Hari Nef.

Aboah was not known to be pregnant until last night, and the Gurls Talk charity founder has been notably sparing with her posts on social media in recent months.

The model, who has walked for the likes of Calvin Klein and Fendi, has been dating the US-based skater and videographer Daniel Wheatley since 2021. The pair are active on social media and regularly post pictures of their life together, travelling between the US and UK.

Under a video compilation he posted of Aboah five weeks ago, she commented: “My hormones can’t handle this.”

In 2021, when it was revealed that she was dating the six foot nine skater boy, she told the Daily Mail’s diary pages: “I’ve always wanted to go out with a long-legged skater.”

Aboah has been a devoted advocate to openness around mental health, and has previously shared her struggles with addiction and depression. She recently opened up about feeling lonely in her career, telling the Reign With Josh Smith podcast: “You get to a stage in your career where you no longer do group shoots or covers.

“You do campaigns and editorial by yourself. It becomes a very solitary kind of job and experience. And so [on set], I loved that I was getting to be with people all the time.”
