How Supermodel Lily Aldridge Discovered Her Mom Was A Playboy Playmate (VIDEO)

Supermodel Lily Aldridge isn't the only famous face in her family. Her mother Laura was a Playboy Playmate in the 1970s, as Aldridge found out when rooting around her father's studio as a child.

"I found out because my dad's an artist," she told HuffPost Live's Josh Zepps on Monday. "So I was in his studio rifling around, causing trouble, and I come across a Playboy. And I'm like, 'Oh my God, Dad is cheating on Mom. He's got Playboy.'"

"So I run upstairs and I'm like, 'Mom, Dad's cheating on you! He has Playboy!' And she [responded], 'Well, I'm in it.'"

Aldridge said she was fascinated by her mother's photos, which were for the magazine's February 1976 issue.

"She showed me and I was like, 'Wow, this is so cool.' The next day I told all my friends and couldn't have been more proud. My [older] brother was traumatized, but I thought it was awesome," the Victoria's Secret Angel said.

Laura Aldridge recently discussed her daughter's Playboy discovery, as well as the experience itself in New York magazine.
