She is a single mother to her adorable little girl Layla Rose, raising the bub on her own after splitting with her father.
And motherhood is certainly agreeing with former Miss Universe Australia contestant Laura Csortan, 41, who shared a tender beach side photo with the one-year-old little girl on Friday.
The stunning former model – best known for winning Miss Universe and Miss World Australia – is seen cradling her tot while wearing a one-piece swimsuit.

In the image, the socialite is seen laying down in the surf, while baby Layla rests gently on her stomach.
The image was captioned simply, ‘My little girl … #beachbabes.’
The former pageant winner sent rumours into overdrive last year when she announced she was pregnant, refusing to publicly announce the paternity of her child.
Layla Rose was born in November last year.

‘Several years ago I would never have thought I would be a single mother,’ she told Who magazine, earlier this year.
‘But things don’t often work out the way you think they will … So you’ve just got to go with the flow and do the best you can.’
The model mum added that the most difficult aspect can be the isolation.
‘I can deal with the lack of sleep and the sore boobs, but the loneliness is the hardest,’ she said.
‘[But] what far outweighs that is the love you will feel for this little human.’
