Showering Doutzen With Love

 

Ever since Doutzen Kroes officially announced that she and her husband were expecting a new member of the family, we’ve been thinking about possible baby presents. But just what do you get a supermodel mom who has it all?  What about a gift that benefits not only the mother, but mothers everywhere?

Proving that her heart is as great as her beauty, Doutzen has teamed up with fellow supermodel and maternal health advocate Liya Kebede to launch her own virtual baby shower to benefit mothers around the world this June.  In addition to celebrating the newest addition to the model’s family, online followers will be invited to shower Doutzen with love by making a donation for a “safe motherhood” inspired gift, including maternal health information, commodities and services, through The Liya Kebede Foundation.  In turn, the Foundation will commit these donations to support maternal and newborn health care services in Ethiopia and global advocacy efforts.

“I want the very best world for my children,” says Doutzen.  ”Every mother does. It’s what makes moms so very important.  Making safe motherhood possible for more women is the perfect way to welcome my little girl into the world.”

As we prepare to shower Doutzen with love this month in support of mothers everywhere, we caught up with the expecting mother herself to talk more about her latest philanthropy project, and how she’s preparing for the birth of her second child, including her latest cravings and maternity style tips.  See our full interview with Doutzen below, and visit The Liya Kebede Foundation website to make a special donation in the model’s honor.

Adriana Lima Dishes on How She Keeps Her Heavenly Figure Throughout the Summer

While models posting photos of their blissful yoga routines is something of the de riguer on Instagram these days, there are still some models who prefer to kick things up a notch with a grueling boxing work out. Take Adriana Lima for example, who proved just how hardcore she is last week leading a #UrbanJungle workout with her trainer, the former champion boxer Michael Olajide Jr., at Aerospace gym in New York.  With Brazilian drummers providing the samba beat, the Victoria’s Secret Angel took front and center with her personal trainer of nearly ten years to lead a special gym session— sponsored by Amazonia beverages— that also doubled as a fund-raiser for St. Luke’s Childrens Hospital.  Following 45 minutes of shadow boxing, jumping rope and sculpting lean muscle, we caught up with Adriana to talk more about her ongoing fitness routine, including her favorite moves and go-to healthy summer meal.  And of course, with summer on the brain, we couldn’t resist asking the supermodel about some of her favorite seasonal activities, including how she’ll be celebrating this month’s World Cup (can you guess who she’s cheering for?).  Score Adriana’s summer fitness tips and more in our exclusive interview with the Angel below:
