Back in December last year, the Talent Management team found out that Alessandra Ambrosio was expecting her second child, having kept it a secret from the media until 4 months into the pregnancy.
But it seems it wasn’t just the media who were unawares – the Brazilian beauty even kept her pregnancy completely under wraps when she walked for the 2011 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, despite modelling skimpy lingerie while being two months along!
In an interview with US Weekly, the model mother explained that she was worried she wouldn’t be able to do the show when she found out she was pregnant: “When I first found out I was 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 also revealed she managed to deal with the early weight gain associated with pregnancy: “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 10 days before and I got my trainer — the one I usually get — and we were doing lots of glutes and arms and back exercises.”
Now all is out in the open, it seems the Victoria’s Secret Angel is enjoying being pregnant: “When I found out I was pregnant I was just as happy as I could be and I’m just enjoying every day. 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.”
