Adwoa Aboah Announces Pregnancy at the Met Gala

Adwoa Aboah is pregnant with her first child!

The supermodel and Harper’s Bazaar cover star, who is dating skater and cinematographer Daniel Wheatley, announced the news at tonight’s Met Gala. She arrived on the steps of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art dressed in a blazing red set that showed off her baby bump. The outfit, custom-made by H&M, was composed of a ruffled crop top and a long bubble skirt.

Aboah last attended the Met Gala in 2022, when she honored the year’s “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” theme in a pale pink Tory Burch gown covered in black polka dots that came with a coordinating cape.

This year’s dress code is “The Garden of Time,” a concept inspired by J.G. Ballard’s 1962 short story of the same name. In essence, the theme examines the intrinsic connection between time and natural beauty—leaving the door wide open for attendees to interpret the dress code as they please.

“The Garden of Time” also complements the Costume Institute’s spring exhibition, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion,” which will include about “250 objects spanning four centuries” from the institute’s vast collection, all of them “visually united by iconography related to nature, which will serve as a metaphor for the fragility and ephemerality of fashion,” according to a press release. The exhibition will feature a number of modern technologies in its display, too, “from cutting-edge tools, artificial intelligence, and computer-generated imagery to traditional formats of x-rays, video animation, light projection, and soundscapes.”
