Alessandra Ambrosio is one of Victoria’s Secret longest-running angels, having modeled for the lingerie giant since 2004. Many angels have come and gone, but the Brazilian bombshell has proven her staying power, perhaps because she feels even sexier after having kids.
Speaking with The Edit, the 34-year-old mother of two got real: “Your body will never go back to exactly what it was before pregnancy, whatever people tell you. It can’t.”
But Alessandra insists these changes were for the best: “I think I have a better body now than before I had kids. It’s partly because I work out, whereas before I didn’t, but also to do with the shape – it just looks more formed now and I feel better about it than I did.”
She makes a strong case (See below).
We hope this healthy, body-positive perspective will keep Alessandra going strong for years to come. Although she feels great now, the Brazilian bombshell vented to The Edit some anxieties about the longevity of her career.
“I started modeling at a very young age, and thought it would all end by the time I was 20; now I’m almost 35 and coming up to my 20th year in the industry,” she said. “Although there might eventually come a time when I want to focus on other areas in my life, if I manage to keep going until I’m 50, like Cindy [Crawford], then great.”
We're sure she has it in her. After all, Alessandra does have the acumen of “the world’s sexiest businesswoman.”
