Supermodel Niki Taylor, who is the wife of NASCAR racer Burney Lamar, gave birth to a baby girl today. Both Niki and her baby, Ciel Taylor Lamar, are completely fine.
The interesting thing is that she gave birth to the baby just a day before her birthday!
“What a present! Born on Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. in Nashville (near the couple’s home in Brentwood, Tenn.), Ciel Taylor Lamar weighed in at 7 lbs., 8 oz.”
This is the couple’s first child. Although, Niki has 14-year old twin sons from a previous marriage with Matt Martinez, a former Arena Football linebacker.
This is what the famous model had to say when she got pregnant:
“I am so happy and ready,” Taylor said after successfully conceiving again. “I am in such a wonderful place in my life that I can really enjoy it all.”
Taylor and Lamar got married on December 27th, 2006 after dating for a while. Niki had undergone over 40 surgical procedures in 2001 when she was involved in a major car accident. She feared at that time that she’ll never be able to conceive again. You can read about her biography here.
“You know what? I had the worst pain I could imagine after the accident and surgeries,” she said. “I can do natural childbirth!”
