The Victoria’s Secret angel and mum-of-two bares the truth behind her runway ready post-pregnancy body

The “heavenly” body has graced the runways yearly and has served as an inspiration (albeit object of jealousy) for many mums who can’t seem to get back in shape after having babies.

But there’s both good news and bad news.

The bad news? Your body won’t go back to the way it used to be. But the good news? It gets even better.

“Your body will never go back to exactly what it was before pregnancy, whatever people tell you. It can’t,” the mother of two tells Net-a-Porter’s The Edit. “But I think I have a better body now than before I had kids. It’s partly because I work out, whereas before I didn’t, but also to do with the shape—it just looks more formed now and I feel better about it than I did.”

The Brazilian supermodel also shed light on how her hometown absolutely “worships” curves.

“It comes from that carnival culture, where women will parade around barely wearing a thing—just a tiny bikini, G-string or feathers,” she shares about Brazilian culture. “Every woman’s body is spectacular there, not because it’s perfect but because they’re loving life. It’s never been about having a Barbie-like physique in Brazil but having the right curves, whatever your proportions or size.”
