Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio has been chosen to model the $2.5 million fantasy bra at this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show — just months after giving birth! The mom of 4-year-old daughter Anja and 5-month-old son Noah will don the pricey lingerie on this year’s annual holiday TV special.
The 31-year-old will work the runway in the Floral Fantasy Bra Gift Set, designed exclusively for Victoria’s Secret by London Jewelers, consisting of a Very Sexy pushup bra, embellished with sparkly gems set in gold, a glitzy centerpiece, and a matching belt. The sexy set features approximately 5,200 gems in all!

Ambrosio, one of Victoria’s Secret’s longtime Angels, reveals to People that she was shocked and excited to find out just three weeks after Noah’s birth that she’d been selected to model the barely-there ensemble. “I just wanted to scream,” she tells the magazine. “But I won’t lie, I was really worried. I was in total mother mode.” Once Ambrosio’s doctor cleared her to exercise, she started walking and doing yoga for the first two months, then moved on to daily sessions of cardio and Pilates.
