David Hasselhoff's daughter Hayley becomes first plus-size Playboy cover model

Watch: David Hasselhoff's daughter bares all for European Playboy

Hayley Hasselhoff has become the first plus-size model to appear on the cover of Playboy magazine.

The 28-year-old actor daughter of Baywatch star David Hasselhoff appears topless on the cover of the May 2021 issue of European Playboy, and admits she is promoting a very different body image than did the 90s lifeguard show her father is famous for starring in.

Hayley told Ranvir Singh on ITV's Lorraine: "That was a television series in itself. I'm talking about real life here. I'm talking about real bodies, real people and right now what I'm trying to project is that you are beautiful just the way that you are.

"And whether that relates to my father's journey or not – it pretty much doesn't.

"I live a very different life than the person who is in my family and this a career path in which I'm able to project my own body positivity and hopefully be able to share this message with a lot of other people."

But the plus-size model — who describes her Playboy photoshoot as "tastefully topless" — says she has the full support of her 68-year-old Knight Rider star dad and mum Pamela Bach, 57.

Hayley told MailOnline: "My dad is very supportive in the choices I make for my own career. My mum and my dad are always very supportive in everything that I have done.

"You have to remember I've been in this industry since I was 14 and I've been a curve model since I was 14.

"To see the progression of where I've gone, to where I am today, I think they're both very, very supportive and they believe in me and all the choices I make in my own career, just like I do for them."
