Pregnant Doutzen Kroes looked stunning when she hit the red carpet Wednesday, May 7, for the Delete Blood Cancer Gala at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.
The supermodel mom, 29, wore a tight, long-sleeved black gown to the evening gala with a messy side-braid in her hair. She smiled and cradled her belly as she posed for photos on the carpet. This will be Kroes' second child with husband DJ Sunnery James. They are expecting a girl.
Although Kroes made her name walking the runway for Victoria's Secret, she does not want her daughter to follow in her footsteps.
"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," she told the New York Post last month. "Though I love my job, I'm not changing the world. 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."
