Raffaella Fico wasn’t afraid to show off her growing baby bump at Milan Fashion Week on Saturday, rocking her preggo belly along with a series of bikinis on the catwalk.
Fico may have split with boyfriend Mario Balotelli, but it seems she’s not ashamed to show off her growing belly, despite the contention between her and Balotelli on whether he is really the father or not, reports The Daily Mail.
Instead of covering up in a full swimming costume for the Pin Up Stars catwalk show, the 24-year-old model opted for a few small bikinis, highlighting her growing tummy.
Fico took to the catwalk in a strapless yellow top and matching bottoms, adding a bright green lace belt around her hips. She paired the bikini with a pair of gold strappy heels, which must have been difficult, given her swollen belly. She also donned a white bikini that featured a cartoon monkey on each cup.
While Czech model Petra Němcová was also featured in the show, Fico was given special recognition by the show’s designer at the end.
Raffaella Fico and Mario Balotelli began dating in 2010, but split in April after it was revealed that the striker had an affair with an escort, Jenny Thompson, notes The International Business Times. the Italian model revealed shortly after their split that she was pregnant with Balotelli’s child. The Italy international star called it “the best news,” but then turned around and claimed Fico should go through a paternity test to see if the baby was really his.
Fico responded by writing in an Italian magazine:
“This child I desire with all my heart. I want it because it is not a child that arrived by chance but instead it is the fruit of love between two people, and you know well what I am talking about. This letter was the only way I could speak to you. I am happy to take the DNA test but I still have the text messages you sent me from Krakow [during Euro 2012 in June and July] in which you said you were happy with the news I had given you.”
Mario Balotelli has yet to respond to Fico’s letter, and the results of any paternity test were not released.
