Model Iskra Lawrence skips gender reveal: ‘That may not be who my child decides to be’

Pregnant model Iskra Lawrence isn’t doing a gender reveal because her announcement may not reflect “who my child decides to be” in the future.

“I’ve always been so so vulnerable online sharing about my past BD [body dysmorphia], ED [eating disorders] talked about mental health and shared so so much but this isn’t about me,” Lawrence, 29, shared in a lengthy Instagram post. “I might be carrying baby P and until now it’s been about my pregnancy experience but this is their life and even though right now I know what gender the professionals have announced that may not be who my child decides to be and it doesn’t feel right to make a big deal about something so personal to them.”

Lawrence has shared the sex of the baby with her parents and close friends, but doesn’t believe such a thing should be turned into a “public service announcement.”

But, she told fans, “That doesn’t mean I won’t be sharing about my experience on this journey and into motherhood.”

The British model and boyfriend Philip Payne first shared news of her pregnancy last month, writing on Instagram, “It’s not just the two of us anymore, we’re soon to be a family of 3 ❤️.”
