Victoria's Secret models are some of the most beautiful women on the planet, and when these stunning models are expecting, they still manage to look fabulous. Whether Miranda Kerr is on the red carpet for an event or Gisele Bundchen is lying out in the sun, these top models love flaunting their physiques, even when it looks like they are about to pop!
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show welcomed these women to walk the catwalk pregnant, and not one of them even appeared to be expecting. So far, only five VS models have walked in the show while pregnant: Candice Swanepoel, Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes, and Lily Aldrige, and in 2018, we saw Irina Shayk wear a spectacular and creative number that covered up her teeny baby bump. Fans would have never guessed that these models were pregnant.
However, these working moms are just like us and have dealt with (or are now dealing with) the stressful and not-so-laid-back parts of being pregnant and parenting children. These top models also sure know how to cover up that stress when they are in public! Here are 20 photos of Victoria's Secret models pregnant that might make people feel a tad envious, but in reality, these women are all experiencing the same things regular moms come across when it comes to pregnancy and raising kids.

I enjoyed my pregnancy, but then I had to lose the [mass] for work. I had contracts and I had to get back in shape immediately. It took me some time.

"On the one hand modeling has taught me so much I would never have learned in school. I've traveled the world and I've built up a huge visual library of knowledge through my work. But a little part of me wonders what I could have done if I had worked with my mind, not just my body," she said.

I thought I'd discipline Ioni strongly, too, but just putting her in the corner is the saddest, most upsetting thing. Whenever I say, 'Ioni, if you don't listen, I'll put you in the corner,' I ask myself, 'Why did I say that? Not I have to follow through.' She won't stay, so I sit with her and we wait it out together.'"
