Dutch model Doutzen Kroes cites motherhood as the key to her success in the modeling industry
Doutzen Kroes says motherhood is the key to her success in the fashion industry.
The Dutch model has worked for L'Oreal, H&M and Calvin Klein over the last few years, but rather than attributing her ever-rising status to her enviable figure, Kroes claims it's due to her two children: Phyllon, three, and newborn daughter Myllena Mae.
The 29-year-old explained: ''I've always known that beauty is also from the inside - if you're happy, that will shine through - I've always believed that, but since I've started having a family, I became even more happy, and I think it even shows more.
''I've also become more successful since I've become a mother. To me, that's like proof that if you're happy that's good for you, and people see that.''
The blonde beauty - who's also modeled for Victoria's Secret - is philosophical about her fitness regime, saying skipping the occasional workout isn't a big deal.
She told The Cut: ''If I really don't feel like it, I'll change my plans and choose to be with my baby.
''If that moment makes me happier, I think that's more important. If I've been working a lot and I've been away from my kids, then I don't go to the gym. It's okay to miss a day.
''I tell myself not to feel bad about it, too, because then it's a waste if you choose not to do something and feel bad.''
