Alessandra Ambrosio in ridiculously expensive lingerie

Alessandra Ambrosio, whose son Noah is not even six months old, has been tapped to model the $2.5 million bra from Victoria's Secret. The super-expensive garment, known as the "Fantasy Bra," is a company tradition every year around the holidays.

Victoria's Secret clearly has a thing for new moms whose bodies are in amazing postpartum shape. Last year's bra-modeler was Miranda Kerr, who was also getting back in shape after giving birth to her son Flynn. Ambrosio says that she got "the call" when her son was three weeks old, so she had to get permission from her doctor to work out. Like every other famous person ever, Ambrosio says that she lost the weight by breastfeeding and by chasing after her kids. Oh, and beach volleyball, swimming, yoga, and cardio, if you were dying to know.

Ambrosio (and presumably Kerr) will be in the annual VS runway show, airing on December 4.
