By now, you probably know all about supermodel Niki Taylor, the host of “Make Me a Supermodel,” who happens to be a bit of a looker. Well, the former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit starlet is now married to NASCAR driver Burney Lamar (ed. note: Who? Oh! That Burney Lamar!), and the couple is expecting their first child.
We know what you’re thinking: How is this news? Well, first of all, Burney Lamar is a NASCAR driver, even if you don’t know who he is. He drives really fast and makes a whole lot of left turns, which could make getting to the hospital when Niki goes into a labor a little more difficult. But, more significantly, Niki could be considered athletic herself. Think about it:
- She’s spent a significant amount of her career wearing an item that can correctly be described as a sporting good (swimsuits)
- She has to spend hours on an elliptical to keep in photo shape
- Her recovery from a horrific accident in 2001 has been nothing less than Herculean.
Really, we’re not kidding about the recovery from her car accident, which left her in a coma with a lacerated liver after the car she was riding in collided with a utility pole. Now she’s so healthy that she’s pregnant again. THAT is an impressive recovery. And do read on … there’s even more photo goodness after the jump.
