Doutzen Kroes has had quite an exhausting day. The Victoria’s Secret model spent the morning giving birth to her second child, daughter Myllena Mae. Doutzen took to Instagram to share the first image of her baby girl, surrounded by husband Sunnery James and her three-year-old son, Phyllon.
The model captioned the sweet snap, “A miracle saw the light of day this morning. Welcome Myllena Mae❤️ Mommy, Daddy and big brother Phyllon are super proud!” Just yesterday, she posted an image of herself and Dutch actress Lieke van Lexmond, also pregnant, with their bellies adorably touching each other. Who knew that Doutzen’s little bun would be out of its oven the very next day?!
Doutzen’s daughter is adorable indeed, but don’t expect to see her following in her mother’s footsteps anytime soon. Doutzen told Page Six that she doesn’t want her daughter to model and would instead prefer if she took a different career path: “Instead of saying, ‘You’re so beautiful,’ I’ll say, ‘You’re smart,’ so she’ll have different aspirations in life than beauty and modeling.”
“Though I love my job, I’m not changing the world,” the new model mom added. “I’d love for her to study and to have different aspirations. We need to teach girls they can become presidents, and it’s not about beauty all the time.”
Sounds like little Miss Myllena’s got a bright future ahead. Congratulations to Doutzen and her family!
