Underneath a before and after photo of the scars that happened as a result of the accident, she wrote an intimate caption. It began, “As I’m getting ready to return to work, feeling strong and near myself again, I want to be completely honest with you. In this day and age where we seemingly share all, I needed some time to heal physically and emotionally.”

“I do however want the truth known. Nearly 2 months ago I had an accident,” she continued.  'There’s a reason I was public about my lupus and aps diagnosis from the start, a lifelong incurable (for now) condition I didn’t know what I was or still am in for.”

Lupus and Antiphospholipid syndrome are both autoimmune diseases. While the former causes a person’s immune system to attack healthy cells, the latter attacks proteins in the blood.

The 29-year-old explained, “I unfortunately had a seizure on my staircase, I fell from over 7ft and landed on my face. I suppose it’s ironic that I’m a model, however I’m grateful I didn’t break my neck.”

“I’ve managed to come full circle through that gratefulness and luck. I could have had it holding my daughter for example, or in a wheelchair, or not breathing at all.”

The Australia-native then managed to find a bit of humor in her situation. “With fashion week coming soon, I wanted to acknowledge my new lighting bolt scar on my forehead, (aka official wizard now ?‍♀️) lip and chin.”
