Alessandra Ambrosio announced on Wednesday that she was four months pregnant, which means she was a little over two months along when she walked in the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show. And though she managed to keep it a secret from both the audience and viewers worldwide, she apparently kept the news from everyone at Victoria’s Secret as well — despite concerns that she’d be able to fit the clothes at all.
Ambrosio told Us Weekly:
“When I first found out I was pregnant I thought, ‘Oh my gosh I don’t think I’m going to be able to walk on the show,’ and I didn’t tell anybody so no one knew at the show that I was pregnant. A week before, I told my booker I don’t think I’m going to be able to fit into the clothes because I gained a few pounds already, but we were just quiet. I cut all the sugars and sweets 10 days before and I got my trainer — the one I usually get — and we were doing lots of glutes and arms and back exercises.”
The emphasis is ours, mainly because we’re somewhat concerned that Ambrosio’s “weight gain” would need to be so curtailed. Granted, cutting out sugars and sweets and working out wouldn’t have caused her or the baby any harm, it just seems like much ado about nothing more than “a few pounds”.
