Los Angeles, Oct 15: Lily Aldridge's mother is a Playboy playmate and the model thought her mom's profession was the "coolest thing".
The 27-year-old is the daughter of saucy magazine pin-up Laura Lyons and artist Alan Aldridge.
"It's a funny story. When I was 10 or 11, I found a copy of Playboy in my dad's studio and I ran to tell my mum. I thought it meant he'd had an affair or something, but my mum was amazing about it - she sat me down and explained that she was one of the playmates. I thought it was the coolest thing," contactmusic.com quoted Aldridge as saying.
