Alessandra Ambrosio would be behind her children if they wanted to follow in her modelling footsteps.
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel left a lasting legacy, having walked in 17 shows, before announcing her retirement last November (17) following the brand’s Shanghai spectacle. Alessandra, who is mother to nine-year-old daughter Anja, and five-year-old son Noah, has insisted that she would help her offspring follow in her footsteps if that’s what they wanted to do.
“I want my children to do what they love, and if that’s modelling, then I would be there every step of the way to support them,” the 37-year-old shared in an interview with American Harper’s Bazaar. “Right now they’re enjoying being kids, learning about the world, and exploring.”
The Brazilian fashion icon, who has also modelled for the like of Ralph Lauren and Christian Dior, decided to hang up her wings so that she could focus on her acting career and successful swimwear line Ale by Alessandra.
Though she still has plenty of career goals, she is adamant that her family will always come first.
“My children are always going to be my number-one priority, so I work hard on arranging my schedule to spend as much time as possible with them,” explained Alessandra, who shares her little ones with ex-fiance businessman Jamie Mazur.
And with Mother’s Day fast approaching in America (18May18), the Daddy’s Home star is looking forward to being spoiled.
“It’s the one day that I get to spend every moment with my kids,” she smiled. “Anja and Noah usually wake me up with breakfast in bed. For the rest of the day we do fun activities like yoga, baking, and crafts. We also take my mum out to a nice lunch to celebrate her.”
