London: Model Kate Moss will celebrate her 40th birthday by posing on the cover of Playboy magazine, founder Hugh Hefner has confirmed.

Moss, 39, will grace the magazine`s 60th anniversary issue, which will be published in December, reported Digital Spy.

"She`s (Kate) a worldwide celebrity, is iconic, and crosses the boundaries from sexual imagery to upscale modelling. It`s a natural for us," Hefner said.

Reports about Moss would pose for Playboy emerged in June when her hairdresser accidentally revealed that he had worked on the shoot.
