Hayley Hasselhoff Becomes First Plus-Sized Model On Cover Of European Playboy

David Hasselhoff's daughter Hayley has become the first plus-sized model to feature on the cover of the European Playboy.

The 28-year-old actor and model shared snaps of her cover on Instagram where she said she was 'humbled' and 'honoured' by the experience.

She wrote: "I am deeply humbled and honoured to be the first-ever curve model on a European cover of PLAYBOY @playboygermany.

"I am overcome with emotion around what this cover signifies for inclusivity and its greater purpose towards female empowerment.

She went on to say: "My relationship with my body has always stemmed from my relationship with my mental wellbeing. With May being Mental Health Awareness month, I feel empowered to be able to wake up and know that I get to live unapologetically myself.

"I hope to inspire women to face their fears of the unknown and to lead a life of purpose in which your body does not define you.

"If there is one thing I would tell my younger self it would be that you are worthy just as you are. Now, more than ever, we should be grounded in the exploration of self and feel encouraged to celebrate ourselves in ways that feel most authentic.

"I can only hope this cover will allow women to know that they are loved, valued and desired just as they are - right here, right now."

Hayley told Playboy the shoot had the full support of her famous dad, saying: "My father has said he is very proud of me for opening doors by being the first curve model on the cover of Playboy Germany.

"He is very supportive of me and says this is a great way forward."

The shoot took place in Paris, with Hayley having to bring her own underwear due to the coronavirus.

She told the magazine it made her feel 'empowered' and 'sexy' to pose naked.
