Though Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrósio makes a living off of her immaculately fit body, she loves being pregnant — and is now expecting her second child! She actually knew for some time now, but kept it a secret as she continued working as previously scheduled and flawlessly walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show without anyone noticing any kind of baby bump just yet!
What does she have to say about the upcoming addition to her family?
Alessandra Ambrósio wrote on her Facebook in both English and Portuguese that her three-year-old daughter with fiancé Jamie Mazur, Anja Louise, “has filled our lives with love.” She continued:
We can’t wait to welcome the new baby into the family this spring!…2011 has been a year filled [with] incredible gifts and this is the ultimate blessing!
The longtime Victoria’s Secret model walked the runway of the televised fashion show while she was two months pregnant.
“I thought, ‘Oh my gosh I don’t think I’m going to be able to walk on the show,’ and I didn’t tell anybody so no one knew at the show that I was pregnant,” she told Us Weekly. “A week before, I told my booker I don’t think I’m going to be able to fit into the clothes because I gained a few pounds already, but we were just quiet. I cut all the sugars and sweets ten days before and I got my trainer — the one I usually get — and we were doing lots of glutes and arms and back exercises.”
How does she feel about being pregnant again, complete with all the aches and pains that come with the process?
”I’m thrilled…I love being pregnant! My body loves to be pregnant. I don’t feel nauseous. I get a little more hungry but I just feel great.
She continued, “I always wanted to have a big family so it was definitely my plan to have another baby. When I found out I was pregnant I was just as happy as I could be and I’m just enjoying every day.”
