LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Supermodel-turned-actress Karolina Kurkova now has a new title to add to her resume: mom.
Karolina, 25, gave birth to her first child -- son Tobin Jack Drury — on Thursday in New York, her rep confirmed to Access Hollywood.
“Both mother and baby are happy and healthy,” the rep said in a statement to Access on Monday morning.
Tobin, who weighed 6 lbs., 3 oz., is the first child for Karolina and her film producer fiance, Archie Drury.
Motherhood seems to be a popular trend among Karolina and her Victoria’s Secret supermodel colleagues.
Fellow models Adriana Lima and Gisele Bundchen are also expecting and Heidi Klum welcomed her fourth child, Lou Sulola Samuel, in October.
“You know, it’s probably the new thing to be pregnant. It’s not to have the Chanel python bag. It’s to be pregnant,” Karolina joked in August.
In November 2008, Kurkova was dubbed the “Sexiest Woman in the World” and was jokingly referred to as “she of the mysterious belly button,” after close up, unaltered photos of the blonde bombshell showed a noticeably smooth – almost invisible – navel.
A rep for the supermodel previously told AccessHollywood.com that an abdominal operation as an infant left Kurkova without a belly button.
Kurkova’s rep also confirmed her lingerie and swimsuit photos are often altered to include an image of a navel – a practice the rep said was typical in the industry when needed.
