Model: I won't tell my daughter she's beautiful
Victoria Secret model Doutzen Kroes speaks out
Victoria's Secret Angel Doutzen has said that she doesn't want her daughter following in her footsteps. The 29-year old is pregnant with her second child, a girl, has spoken out, saying that she doesn't want her daughter to be a model, wanting her to have different aspirations than her own.
"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 said to the New York Post. "Though I love my job, I'm not changing the world. I'd love for her to study and to have different aspirations."
Many reports show that children are developing poor body images at a younger and younger age, do you think that by not telling a girl she is beautiful that this will help?
