Many of the Victoria’s Secret Angels have become moms over the years, including Miranda Kerr, Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Lily Aldridge. Even after having one or sometimes more than one child, these women continue to look amazing, with some of them continuing to walk down the runway for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Trying to balance motherhood & modeling may not always be easy and yet these gorgeous moms show that you really can have it all. Let’s take a closer look at some of Victoria’s Secret Angels kids and family life.
Victoria’s Secret Models Children and Motherhood
Aussie beauty Miranda Kerr may no longer walk in the VS fashion show, but she’s keeping busy modeling. Miranda Kerr’s son, Flynn, is now five, going on six in January, and loves hanging out with his model mom Kerr. Flynn is often pictured hanging out with Kerr and seems to live an ordinary life. Although Kerr and Flynn’s dad are divorced—his dad is hottie Orlando Bloom—she has since moved onto Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel. Although a divorce can be difficult, it seems that Kerr makes it work with her ex-husband, along with her new boyfriend, to ensure that Flynn is the priority.
Klum has quite the clan of children with four. Like Kerr, Klum is also divorced from father of her children and singer, Seal. Klum has since moved on and currently has a boyfriend, but Klum and Seal maintain a great co-parenting relationship. Klum’s children range in age with daughters Leni, 12, and Lou, 6, and sons Henry, 10, and Johan, 9.
Although a big fear for many women having children is having their bodies return to what it was pre-pregnancy—Ambrosio has admitted that her body is better now since having children then it was before. In an interview with The Edit, she explained, “Your body will never go back to exactly what it was before pregnancy, whatever people tell you. But 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 then.”
Although Ambrosio wasn’t raised on working out, she has since made it a part of her daily routine, which also may be helping with her post-baby body too.
As for Lily Aldridge’s daughter Dixie, it seems she is following in her mother’s modeling footsteps as she has made her own debut in Vogue. Baby Dixie was photographed alongside model mom, Aldridge, in an issue of Vogue. The two both wore blue, which complimented each other well.
Although it can be difficult to juggle family life and a hectic modeling career, it seems that these Angels have found a way to make a healthy mix between the two.
