Glamour model Sophia Cahill shocked the audience when she appeared naked and heavily pregnant on the catwalk at London Fashion Week.
Now the 28-year-old single mother, with one month left before she gives birth, has revealed she still strips off to support her family but finds it 'tough being alone.'
A former Miss Wales, Sophia has been modelling since she was 18, but after getting pregnant with son Bailey, now nine - and splitting up with his father soon after - she turned to glamour modelling to pay the bills.

Sophia has also appeared in Penthouse and Playboy, earning up to £500 a day.
Last year she fell pregnant again with her boyfriend of five months - but the pair broke up 11 weeks later.
She told Closer magazine: 'I need to work to pay the bills and it's really tough doing it alone.

This time I had to provide for by unborn baby and Bailey. I had to keep working.
'There were gasps when I went down the catwalk, but it didn't bother me. A pregnant body is beautiful and shouldn't be hidden.
'Some women feel fat and frumpy with a bump - but I feel sexy and womanly. Men tell me I look gorgeous and sexy.'
Sophia appeared at Welsh milliner Robyn Coles' debut show wearing nothing but a hat
Sophia modelled for Welsh milliner Robyn Coles earlier this month in nothing but a hat.
Coles said she wanted to include Cahill, who is a friend from home, because it is rare to see pregnant women on the catwalk.
'She was one person I knew would be more than happy to get her kit off. I thought it would be nice she would be pregnant for the show. You never see that kind of thing in fashion.'
