‘Having a perfect body isn’t everything. I want my daughter to be nice, have a good education and be disciplined.That’s what makes people like her. A perfect butt doesn’t make an amazing person. It’s about feeling confident.’
On working out:
When I started with Victoria’s Secret at 21, I never worked out. Then when I got pregnant with my daughter, I gained about 60 pounds and had to walk the Victoria’s Secret show three months later. That was the first time I had to really fight to get my body back into shape.’
‘I’ll do three sets of 25 Supermans [to tone my back]. I don’t really do much for my arms; throwing my kids in the air helps already. Plus, as a Brazilian, I know the last thing a man is going to look at – even after your feet – is your arms!’
‘I Spin on Monday, go to pilates on Wednesday and yoga on Sunday. You have all these other things to put in front of [workouts] that you say are more important, but they’re not. Your health is most important.’
