The Top 3 Earning Models Are All Moms!

By Sunny Chanel |

bundchen-gA list of the 10 best paid models of 2009 was just released.  It’s no surprise that most of them are Victoria’s Secret models, but was is interesting was that the top three earners last year are all moms!  Who made the list?

You can probably guess the top earner. Gisele Bundchen. She made the most last year even with taking a chunk of the time off to grow a baby inside her multi-million dollar bod. She brought home a whooping $35 million.

Next up is Kate Moss. This mom of seven-year-old Lila Grace took time off from child rearing to rake in $7.5 million dollars last year.

Coming in third is Adriana Lima, who had a son in November. Which means that she, like Gisele, was out of commission for most of the year. But she still managed to earn $7 million dollars.

Also on the list – in fifth place -  is new mom Karolina Kurkova who had her son Tobin Jack Drury on October 29th. Yet another model who spent most of the year on the sidelines being pregnant but still …she made $5 million bucks.

Those are some lucky ladies bringing home beaucoup bank and babies!
