Victoria’s Secret Angel and iconic fashion model Alessandra Ambrosio is already the mother of two. The 34-year-old recently opened up to Net-a-Porter‘s “The Edit” about her fitness routine, emotional eating and motherhood.
“Your body will never go back to exactly what it was before pregnancy, whatever people tell you.” she told the publication. “It can’t. But I think I have a better body now than before I had kids. It’s partly because I work out … Not that it was easy getting back into shape post-pregnancy; after having Anja I only had three months to lose all the weight [before doing the 2008 Victoria’s Secret runway show] and I was on this 1,200-calorie-a-day meal-delivery service that I hated. I couldn’t do that again.”
As Alexandra explains “It wasn’t until I did my first Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show that I started exercising. For [my fiancé] … going to the gym was his friend, whereas it had always been an enemy for me. Now it’s a healthy, normal part of my daily routine,” the model added.
