Adriana Lima Struggles To Accept Who She Is!
After giving birth to her son Cyan, Adriana Lima is still getting used to her postpartum physique. Even though Lima is a supermodel and a former Victoria’s Secret Angel, she recently admitted to People that she is insecure with her body image after delivering a baby last year.
I have to constantly tell myself, “Listen, accept who you are. In an interview on April 13, she added, “Accept your body. “You just gave life to a thing. It’s really a wonderful blessing.
Lima emphasised the need for self-acceptance, especially when it’s challenging, to help her deal with what she refers to as her “transitional body” after giving birth. “You need to practise acceptance of changes every day.
And I have daily struggles, she added. She previously admitted to People that, in addition to this mental labour, she has been looking forward to beginning a more regular exercise regimen after delivering birth.
This is an extremely significant element of my life, she said. We already have a plan in place, and I typically begin exercising six weeks after giving birth.
The Motherhood Of Adriana Lima
In August 2022, Lima and her boyfriend Andre Lemmers welcomed their son Cyan. Additionally, she is the mother to twelve-year-old Valentina and nine-year-old Sienna from her former union to basketball player Marko Jari.
According to Lima, her girls are becoming “big-time” interested in fashion.
They actually give me fashion advice. They ask, “Can I do your makeover today, Mom?” “Mom, may I pick your outfit?” and whatnot.
She explained her role in her mixed family by saying, “They keep me updated because with five kids it’s incredibly hard to follow up on what’s going around. So they take care of that for me.

Adding further, it doesn’t get any easier the third time around only because she has seen how her body changes from her previous pregnancies. “I have to remind myself every day that I’m only human.
Every now and then, I feel insecure,” she admitted. “After that, I discover something new every day. Your body also reacts differently as you get older. However, nothing is wrong. I’m learning new things every day.
