Model Niki Taylor expecting in March
1990’s supermodel Niki Taylor and husband, Nascar driver Burney Lamar are expecting their first child together, a baby girl due in early March. The pair were married in 2006 and currently live in Tennessee. Taylor, 33, is already mom to 13-year old twin boys, Jake and Hunter, with ex-husband Matt Martinez.
Taylor hosts the series Make me a Supermodel, which premiered in January, 2008 and is due to air again on Bravo sometime in 2009.
The model has been through a lot in her life, including the asthma-related death of her younger sister, Krissy, at age 17, an early marriage, divorce and motherhood at age 20, and a life-threatening car accident she experienced in 2001.
Because of complications from severe liver damage which resulted from this accident, Taylor is unable to receive an epidural during child birth. She is quoted as saying that in light of all she has endured in her life time, she could certainly handle natural child birth as well.
The new little bundle on the way must have particularly deep meaning to the model and her husband, in light of the fact that Taylor lost a sister at such a young age and nearly lost her own life as a young woman.
Having twin boys at the age of twenty is quite a different experience from expecting a baby girl at the age of 33. It is truly a chance for renewed happiness and a new beginning for Taylor and Lamar. Jake and Hunter will likely be proud and protective older brothers.
After all she has been through, Taylor will surely savor every moment with her new baby girl.
