Alessandra Ambrosio


Alessandra Ambrosio has exclusively revealed to E! News that her daughter, Anja, will be having a little brother.

"I am having a boy! I am so excited!" The Victoria's Secret model told us. "Because I already have a daughter I know what to expect with a girl, so having a boy means it's going to be surprising all over again. My fiancé is so excited. Now he has company! He won't be in a house full of girls anymore!"

It's a dream come true for the 30-year-old, "I have wanted a boy for a long time. I actually thought my first baby was going to be a boy, but then, of course, was very happy to get a girl. But now I am getting a boy as well, it's absolutely perfect. It's the best news."

Alessandra is five weeks away from giving birth and admits the news has left her in a predicament about what to name her future son.

"Before I found out the gender, I had lots of girls names picked out, but no boys names," she admits. "That's the hardest part! I have five good names for a girl and really none for a boy. I want something that works well in both Portuguese and English. It can't be too American or my grandmother won't be able to pronounce it!"

But Alessandra says her 3-year-old daughter is helping her with suggestions, "Anja is telling everyone how happy she is. I love having a girl, she's super fun. She's really excited and has also come up with a name she would like him to be called. I told her that her name for him can be his nickname."

Alessandra says she's finding this pregnancy to be easy, telling E! News,  "I am feeling really good. My back is starting to hurt a little bit, but I am doing yoga three times a week and taking walks on the beach, so that is helping. I'm waking up every three hours in the night though, so that's not as fun. But aside from that, this pregnancy has been really easy."

The family is busy prepping for the new arrival. Alessandra has been spending the past few weeks getting her new son's nursery ready for the day he comes home.

"I think the nursery is going to be a combination of aqua and khaki. It's a nice combination of colors. I've been using a website called They've been really helpful with ideas."

As for more children, Alessandra says she's not done yet, "I used to say that I wanted five kids, but we'll see how it goes."
