Brazilian super model, Adriana Lima, had her second child just weeks before the 2012 Victoria’s Secret fashion show. The Victoria’s Secret Fashion show is one fashion show that’s dedicated to showcasing the best of luxury lingerie, which automatically means more than enough show of flesh. Yet, this new mom showed off her very flat tummy and skinny body in a mere 8 weeks after giving birth.
And the audience was wowed at the fact that she achieving that feat. It just feels like supermodels are not like the rest of us normal folks, who would be struggling to lose even one KG, several months after childbirth. Agreed, she had the help of top nutritionists and fitness experts, like Nigeria-born Michael Olajide, Jr, who is a former champion boxer and personal trainer, it was still her motivation to work out twice a day, seven days a week that made the main difference. At the end of the day, supermodels are just that…supermodels.
And then, there is the recently displaced Forbes’ number one model, Gisele Bundchen, who shared what is possibly the most glamorous breastfeeding photo ever, which showed her getting her hair and makeup done while she was casually breastfeeding her daughter, Vivian, at the same time.
Bundchen is outspokenly pro-breastfeeding, even catching some flak when she told Harper’s Bazaar UK, “There should be a worldwide law that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.”
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel is a staunch breastfeeding advocate and even though she has seen the inside of a labour room more than once, she held the crown of the Forbes list of the world’s highest-paid models for a whole 14 years, until newcomer, Kendall Jenner, claimed the top spot.
In this article, we will be looking at some of the top models around the world, who are moms and still have great bodies. If nothing, it can motivate us all small.
Of course, I will be opening the list with my favourite celebrity momma. On the Forbes list of the world’s highest-paid models, Chrissy ranks third with a whole $13.5 million netted in the last one year of working.
Chrissy is pregnant with baby number two, and if her previous statements are to be taken into account, then she is expecting a baby boy.
But that’s not the gist. Her snapback game is the real deal, and she is not stingy about sharing her secrets.
Meanwhile, we will be enjoying her exemplary ways of styling the bump…designer style.
