It seems the beauty of life eventually catches up with us all despite even if your career is based on your figure (well that is unless your name is Naomi Campbell). If you are a follower of the stunning Angolan Super Model Maria Borges then you will know that she recently took to her platforms to share her current pregnancy with us (Video at the bottom on the article).
Who Is Maria Borges?
Maria Borges is an Angolan supermodel Born in October 1992. She was discovered in 2010 when she participated in Elite Model Look. She later signed with IMG Models and the rest was history.
Maria Borges was the first fashion model to proudly rock her Afro at Victoria’s Secret fashion show. In 2013 she was named Forbes Africa Magazine’s top model of the year. At the age of 25 years old she became the first-ever African woman to feature on the cover of the American version of ELLE in 2017, 20 years after Alek Wek did.
But the acceptance of the Western entities based on their racist limitations is not what has made Maria Borges and great fashion icon. We salute Maria Borges because, unlike most top fashion models, she didn’t wait until her reign was over before she began working to help other Angolan models and the fashion industry in Angola.
She launched The Star Management which has been discovering young talent in Angola and blessing them with international contracts. She also graced the presence of Angola Fashion Week using her popularity to level it to some of the top fashion events on the African continent.
She is a public speaker and an activist for girls’ rights, so much so that earlier this year, she became the newly appointed ambassador of tourism in Angola.
So if that baby turns out to be a beautiful girl she would have an inspiring mother and so much to live up to. We believe this would be her first child with her long-time boyfriend Duke Mandinga, and with the beauty of the two as seen below, there is no doubt the child is already a model.
With all of that said, she took to instagram yesterday to publish a video of her with her unborn child. See Maria Borges flaunt her belly bump below.
