2008's Most Painful Rumor: Alessandra Ambrosio is Pregnant!?!

I read about this yesterday in the forum & just brushed it off as someone playing a mean joke on us. In the post, the writer claims the pregnancy scoop was first reported last week in the Brazilian newspaper, Terra Brazil. Another forum member claims the pregnancy is mentioned in Ale’s Rolling Stone article, but no one could confirm.


That’s from New Year’s.

Today the New York Post’s Page Six reports that it was all true & confirmed by some shady anonymous insider. Since we love Ale so much, we’re gonna call bullshit on this one.

January 15, 2008 — IT looks like Victoria’s Secret angel Alessandra Ambrosio won’t be strutting down the runway in her skivvies anytime soon. The Brazilian beauty, 26, is pregnant with her first child. “She’s a few months along,” said our insider. Ambrosio is thrilled, she told pals at a weekend party at the Hollywood Hills house of her boyfriend, Jamie Mazur. [NY Post]

I know Alessandra isn’t this stupid, so let’s pray that this is all just a horrible rumor! She just became the highest paid VS model, for God’s sake!!

It wouldn't be surprising if Ale is currently the highest paid VS model since the company announced a few months ago it was targeting teenage customers as its main customers after suffering its first major losses ever. They've been touting Ale as the face of their 'younger' clients and it appears she's become their top angel because she's featured prominently within the magazine and seems to have been on almost every catalogue cover last year. However, there's no way she's the highest paid model in the US - unless she has other very lucrative endorsements. 2008 just started and she's not the only model renegotiating/negotiating contracts.

If she got pregnant, there wouldn't be a problem as long as she got back into shape after the kid. Look at Klum and one of the other Brazilian models for VS had 2 kids and there wasn't a problem with her VS contract. Besides, working for VS is not a year round job. She shows up for a couple of shoots a year, does promotion and walks in the show at the end of the year.

Here's the E! video saying Alessandra is pregnant:

Adriana is on the verge of too skinny in the pics I posted in #74, I know that. I was just trying to show how skinny she has actually been. Besides, her body looked pretty fucking great in that Esquire video that was posted a few days ago. All I'm saying is that she needs to watch out more nowadays because she's more inclined to gain weight than when she was young-er (better?).

Everyone seems to throw a fit every time I mention Adriana's prime being around 2003-2005 lol (pics in #74 are before that). I don't know if it's because it reminds them that looks are transitory? For fuck's sake, she still looks great and yes, 26 is not old. And no, I don't like small girls. That's one of the reasons I'm not a big fan of Miranda. She reminds me too much of 15-year-old.

ow.

she could do with some meat on her bones. not a big fan of the stick-legs look.

Sorry Pstroyer but i'm going to have to agree with Lokiman.

She looked like a child back then. I don't know how old she was in those photos, but she looked no older than 16, and that's not hott. She was too thin and did not look like a real woman. I don't get your whole "prime" thing. Is 26 years old, or what?? I thought 20's was young, damnnn!!! I think a woman can be attractive at any age. Of course a woman won't look as perfect at 50 as she did at 25, but she can still be attractive. But this is a COMPLETELY different story... Adriana is not 50, she's 26. And 26 is young. Also, "Prime" does not exist because everybody ages differently and I have seen women who look better in their 40s than they did in their 20's. Adriana looks like a real woman now, not an underweight teenager who is still going through puberty and developing. I just don't get the whole prime thing... She is a young and attractive woman and looks like a young and attractive woman. She looks just how she should.

Are you into little girls, or what?

Mari, wrong

she made the celebrity 100 list in 2006 with 4 million

and made the 15 richest supermodels list in 2007 with 6 million.

I enter "adriana lima" in forbes, nothing on her before 2006

Two different lists, she made the main one "the celebrity 100" list once.

You're right. Didn't really take that into consideration. ... now that I come to think about it, they do actually sign these long-term contracts so Adriana could have signed a 2 million contract back when the dollar was a lot more potent. And then maybe Alessandra has signed a contract at a later point with a higher amount against a weaker dollar. Good point.

Yeah, its would be great if her weight went to "other" places

but when she does put on the weight, it goes straight to her face and stomach.

This is why I said proportionally she is too thick in the middle.

That's kind of where it all goes.

Well, we will never know exactly how much gets paid. In 2006 I heard Ale and lima get 2 mil. a piece for each year. I will just have to wait for the next Forbes list or a press release.

For the superbowl ad, for 30 sec. I thought it was more around 1.5 million.

pstroyer, again you say they won't pay her a few million more that Lima, but when did Lima sign that old contract. Gisele signed her old 5mil a year deal over 6 years ago, its called inflation/drop in the dollar. New contracts will be higher, hell, Gisele wants new contracts to be denominated in euro's to diversify away from the dollar.

Hallery

Well, she did say that she wants at least 5 kids! Her body will probably bounce back just fine, maybe with a few more curves, which will make her look WAY better in my opinion anyway.

Speaking of VS models, can you guys please tell me who this one is? She looks a lot like Izabel Goulart but I don't think it is her.

I'm not determining who's the best based on runway highlights lol. But yes, both Lima (opened show twice, closed it twice) and Karolina (opened show once, wore bra twice) have better show highlights than Alessandra who has neither opened the show, worn the bra or closed the show.

I'm determining who's the lead angel based on the fact that Adriana gets first billing in the show and her name always gets mentioned first in press releases.

I don't think VS is paying Alessandra 3 million dollars more than they are paying Adriana, that needs some substantiation. And 5 million? I think they're getting closer to 2 or 3 million each. But I guess we'll never know the details.

btw. I just read that Lima's superbowl spot may easily have cost as much as $3 million dollars, just for securing the ad spot during superbowl. Ouch.

#69 That picture is from her "down period" where she gained quite a bit of weight. But yea, she needs to watch her weight more nowadays. Only when she was young could she do just fine without excersising. She can't really do that anymore because she seems more inclined to gain weight than Alessandra.

lima looked pretty good in those covers

the only negative thing I can say is that proportionally she is really thick in the middle.

She has curves but at the size they are her stomach should be smaller. This was said before but.... It's really noticeable here. The rest looks great.

some of those covers are pretty good and the other were sh*tty

some of the poses, outfits, backgrounds, lighting and photography were absolutely awful.

pstroyer, good points

but when I found out that Ale make 5 million a year from VS, that really sealed the deal she is lead angel.

Hey, look at KK (Ale and lima are bigger than her) but she has opened the show in 2001 at the age of 16 even before she was an angel, had the fantasy bra twice and still gets paid less than Ale and lima.

So if you really want to measure "who's better" you must look at pay not who opened the show.

Because by your logic KK got the opening and fantasy bra TWICE therefore, she should be better and bigger than Ale and lima, but she is NOT.

Zahra, I don't necessarily think Adriana is "the hottest thing out there" anymore. Like I always say, I consider her past her prime (she's almost 27 anyway). Adriana in her prime, though, was one of the hottest women I ever saw. Damn, was she fine...

Like here:

Or the Bob Dylan commercial (this is behind the scenes):

Haha Pstroyer, some of those covers are the only VS covers I ever remember. I mean, I've gotten so so soooo many VS catalogues in the mail over the years but the only ones which stuck with me are some of the ones with Adriana on the cover. Others were too plain and boring. I'm not exactly a Lima fan and am not obsessed like some of you guys and think she's the hottest girl out there, but I have to admit that she is captivating... Those eyes pull you in. No one else can do a better cover...

"Ale got on the Brazil Rolling Stone without it being a VS advert. and did it by herself."

Ale IS a VS advert. You think she would have even gotten to the point of getting that gig if it wasn't for VS pushing her name in their catalogs in the first place?

Adriana was landing editorials in Vogue, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Glamour etc. in 1997 before she even signed with VS. She was on covers of Marie Claire and Elle as soon as 1998. She didn't become a VS angel before 2000.

(of course Gisele makes both Adriana and Alessandra look like wimps when it comes to cover gracing, lol)

Esquire is a large American magazine with a 75-year history. Is Rolling Stone Brazil even 5 years old? It's a local paper by comparison.

"Only one appearance has been mention with lima and Emanuela and it is not a sure thing, it is just a speculation that it is lima and Emanuela."

From what I hear it's confirmed. A quick google at least adds some credibility to it:

www.chic.ig.com.br/materias/472501-473000/472963/472963_1.html

As for the superbowl...

"Victoria's Secret is back at the Super Bowl after a nine-year hiatus. The sexy lingerie brand will run a 30-second ad featuring model Adriana Lima. "She's got those spectacular eyes," said Ed Razek, chief marketing officer and president of brand and creative services at Limited Brands, which owns VS. Razek noted the ad was created internally and that Lima was in the VS commercial with Bob Dylan four years ago (disoriented Dylan fans are still trying to recover from that one)."

www.wwd.com/issue/article/121447

Why would he put it that way if the commercial is going to feature all the angels? Doesn't make sense. It's a Lima solo commercial like the Bob Dylan commercial (solo meaning no other angels).

Alessandra might be all over the catalogs but the catalogs suck nowadays and Adriana was all over the catalogs back in the day when they still looked good. Compare some of Adriana's old covers to the shit they're putting out nowadays and it's easy to see VS catalogs have gone downhill...

www.casperchristophersen.com/covers

As long as Adriana gets the cool gigs. It doesn't get much bigger than opening the fashion show and getting your own solo commercial during superbowl. She also got first billing during the fashion show which means she's the lead angel.

lol, I love these pointless discussions, now I better get on with some work...

She did NOT get on that cover by herself so I am not impressed. It a VS related deal

Esquire was with Izabel, KK, Selita and lima.

She did get on that cover by herself so I am not impressed. It a VS related deal

Ale got on the Brazil Rolling Stone without it being a VS advert. and did it by herself.

Ale has been all over the adverts. for the big semi annual sale again.

We don't know for sure that lima is the only model in the super bowl commercial.

"saying only that it features Victoria's Secret Angel Adriana Lima"

he didn't say "that it features only VS angel adriana lima" its just that is the "only" comment he made. If the commercial is only her I will be impressed to some degree.

Only one appearance has been mention with lima and Emanuela and it is not a sure thing, it is just a speculation that it is lima and Emanuela.

"There will be a new beauty launch (Sexy Little Things) and bra launch (Very Sexy) at the end of this month. From what I have seen Adriana and Emanuela will be the models in the marketing"

that does not sound like lima will be doing ALL the promoting.

Besides, Ale's picture and no one else, is on the Sexy Little Things Beauty products line.

Yes lima with be hosting the party but I doubt she will be interviewing/ talking much.

Ale was all over the Swim 2008 VS catalog as well as the majority of all adverts. in 2007. I could count lima's pics on one hand.

lol, wasn't it obvious I was joking. I placed a ":P" and started the next paragraph with "nah..:". Should I include a "j/k" tag next time so you won't get the wrong picture?

omega, yes but even if Alessandra surpasses Lima for mid-2006 to mid-2007 period, that doesn't necessarily make her the highest paid model in the US. Lima had a break last year due to personal problems and Alessandra might have been able to capitalize on that. But I still doubt that VS would pay Alessandra $3 million more than their veteran model. It's not like she did anything major for VS that Adriana didn't also do.

But Adriana is on a roll now and back with a vengeance.

- She opened the big show

- Did all the show promotion with Karolina

- She just appeared on the 75th anniversary cover of Esquire (Esquire > Brazilian Rolling Stone)

- She'll have her own solo commercial during superbowl, one of the most craved and expensive advertising spots in the world

- She'll be heading the VS valentine's campaign along with fellow VS model Emanuela

- She'll present the VS "Sexiest List" on an E! Special that she'll be hosting

- She has several big-budget Maybelline commercials coming out this year, one of them being the "zebra" commercial with Jessica White

So obviously she's far from done...

"lima only made the celebrity once in 2006 @ # 99 with 4 million"

I don't think Alessandra has made that list even once so what's your point? It's quite an accomplishment for a model, especially a foreign one, to place on Forbes' 100 Most Powerful Celebrities list.

Oh and since I mentioned Adriana reaching as far as Asia professionally, here's a Japanese Maybelline ad with her.

her contract says her body can't change at all
