Diffractive proton-proton cross sections at the LHC, as well as the total and total-inelastic proton-proton cross sections, are predicted in a simple model obeying all unitarity constraints. The model has been implemented in the PYTHIA8-MBR event generator for single diffraction, double diffraction, and central diffraction processes. Predictions of the model are compared to recent LHC results.
