Model mom Alessandra Ambrosio says that being picked to model the Fantasy Bra, worth a whopping $2.5 million, at next month’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show gave her extra incentive to drop the baby weight.
“Well, you know, actually when they called [to tell] me that I was chosen to wear this year’s Fantasy Bra I was nursing my two-week old,” Alessandra, mom to Anja, 4, and Noah, 5 months, tells OK! “He was two-weeks old and I was totally in a different world. I’m back in Brazil. I’m home nursing my baby and they’re like, ‘You were chosen to wear the bra!’ and I’m like, ‘Oh my god!’”
Though she was shocked, she happily accepted the offer, admitting that she “always wanted to wear” the Fantasy Bra, which features a collection of amethysts, rubies, sapphires and a 20-carat white diamond.
“And then I look down and I’m holding my baby and I’m like, ‘Ah! How am I going to do this? They’re going to need a lot of gold right here to cover the whole thing!’ It was funny,” Alessandra recalls.
So the Brazilian stunner hit the gym and didn’t look back, quickly getting back to her pre-baby shape.
“I started working out after the doctor gave me the OK. I started taking a lot of spinning classes, Pilates. I’ve been going to the beach as much as I can. Just being outdoors, running after my kids. Whenever I can be active, I’m active.”
