It’s a mini baby boom in the modeling world and baby bumps are watched by millions on Instagram. In the past two weeks, two Victoria’s Secret angels welcomed their own little angels. Behati Prinsloo gave birth to her first child, a little girl named Dusty Rose, and Candice Swanepoel welcomed her first born, a baby boy named Anacan. The new moms join a long list of supermodels who have given “yummy mummy” a whole new meaning.
Having a baby used to signal the winding down of a modeling career, as it was assumed that giving birth would somehow ruin a model’s figure and distract her from her career. Not so! Today’s models are even more amazing after having their babies, with more sensual, womanly curves. It is now completely normal for a model to start her family in her late twenties as they know that their career will pick up again and even expose them to a broader audience after they have kids. Modeling careers can go on indefinitely now and pausing to start a family no longer means an end of her career unless a it is a model’s personal choice. It actually focuses a model’s energies into achieving more while working less in order to spend as much time as she can with her offspring, while providing for them at the same time.
I managed to keep my hand in the modeling world while I had my own three kids and wouldn’t change a thing. I became a much more successful and focused model after starting my family, and with the great support of my agents and clients I have been able to maintain my career and achieve so many of my goals while raising my kids. Some models, such as Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes and Heidi Klum have even walked runways – including in the epic Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show – only weeks after giving birth. Many model moms like Kate Moss, Natalia Vodianova, and Sasha Pivoverova have appeared with their children in the pages of Vogue shot by legendary photographers in some of the most beautiful and memorable editorials ever. The industry no longer dictates when or how a model can begin her family or influence how she raises her kids.
Here’s to yummy mummies everywhere! Welcome Dusty Rose and Anacan! We will be watching your moms’ Instagram feeds to share in their joy with their new little angels!
