Generally when you think of Victoria Secrets models you think of nubile young hotties, but these days it’s more about nubile young mommies!
The big Victoria’s Secret runway show didn’t feature just one new mom but two. Both Adriana Lima and Karolina Kurkova are back after taking a year off to spend time with their newborns, and to lose that baby weight.
What did the ladies have to say about the big return to the runway?
“Coming back this year is quite exciting,” Adriana told Access Hollywood. “It was a long road of waiting and I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to lose the baby weight. My body structure was completely different [after having the baby].
“To find time to go to the gym with sleepless nights is not easy — trust me,” she added. “Every time [my daughter] Valentina would take a nap, I would go to the gym. So, 50 lbs. later, I’m here!”
Karolina Kurkova said that, “Coming back [to the show] this year is kind of exciting because I had a break,” she told Access. “I get to see everybody that I haven’t seen, and it’s kind of fun doing it from a new perspective — as a mother (not just as a young woman, but as a young woman who has a family, who has a son, who has a husband).”
She added that once you have a baby something switches and you can take on multi-tasking with gusto. “You become this powerful big mama who can deal with anything, do everything,” she said. “I take care of the house, I cook, I work, I walk the runway.”
“I said to my son this morning, Mommy’s gonna be an angel for a day, and then she’s gonna be right back, OK?’” Karolina laughed.
