Alessandra Ambrosio & Anja: Puppy Love

What a cutie (and Anja’s pretty adorable as well).

Expectant Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio, 30, was seen picking up her 3-year-old daughter Anja from school in Santa Monica, Calif. on Wednesday (February 22).

The Brazilian-born beauty – who is expecting her second child with partner Jamie Mazur – brought along a white furry friend today to greet her daughter. Judging by sweet Anja’s smile, I think the pup was a hit.

Although Alessandra stomped the catwalk back in November in the Victoria’s Secret annual lingerie extravaganza back, she has admitted that she was unsure if she would be able to participate in the show due to her growing maternity curves.

“When I first found out I was pregnant I thought, “Oh my gosh I don’t think I’m going to be able to walk on the show,'” she said in December, revealing that she kept the pregnancy a secret from the company by telling the show’s producer that she had merely put on some weight.
