Every mother waits with anticipation for their baby’s first words hoping to hear “mama” or, failing that, “dada.” However, supermodel Adriana Lima, heard the family pet’s name instead.
Adriana, 29, is the owner of a Maltese pooch named Ivy and told the story to In Touch at the Victoria’s Secret Supermodels Launch of Bombshell in New York on September 24. “The dog was barking, so I said, ‘Ivy, no!’ And she said, ‘Ivy!’ It was really amazing, and so funny.”
Adriana is married to NBA player, Marko Jaric, and had their first child, Valentina, last November. The stunning beauty has now returned to modeling having maintained both her figure and former fitness levels. She thinks that having her baby actually helped with her work.
Motherhood was a great thing for my career. I feel sexier and more confident right now.”
