Hayley Hasselhoff has become the first ever plus-size model to grace the cover of Playboy.
David Hasselhoff’s daughter – who competed in Celebrity X Factor in 2019 – has stripped off for a saucy shoot and landed the German version of the publication’s coveted front page.
She follows in the footsteps of other Playboy cover stars including Marilyn Monroe, Kim Kardashian, Madonna and Pamela Anderson.
The pictures were taken at the site of a former brothel in Paris during lockdown and Hayley had to wear her own underwear as the coronavirus outbreak made it difficult to get hold of outfits for the shoot.
“I am overcome with emotion around what this cover signifies for inclusivity and its greater purpose towards female empowerment.
“I wanted to use this platform to express that you have the power to love your body without hesitation because of societies’ standards of beauty.”
She ended her post by thanking magazine bosses, adding: “You’ve made me feel like I could take ownership of myself.”
In her interview with the magazine, Hayley admitted she felt liberated to pose naked, saying: “[I felt] enlightened, empowered, sexy, silly and free.”

Hayley also revealed her famous dad backed her decision to pose for the raunchy magazine.
She said: “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.”
Hayley went on to insist she felt “empowered” by the shoot, adding: “I want to share with women that no matter what shape or size – you can and should feel sexy for yourself.
“I feel honoured to have been asked to be the first curve model on the cover of Playboy Germany. I knew once I was asked to be the first curve model on the cover, that it would be for a greater purpose than just myself.
“It is a step forward for inclusivity and empowerment for curvier women to be represented.”
