The 37-year-old mom of two has walked the runways for almost 20 years, including once while pregnant and once just three months post-partum. And with nearly 10 million Instagram followers, Ambrosio is clearly still at the top of her game. In town to promote her new campaign launch for LASCANA, a German swim, lingerie and active brand now available in the U.S., we sat down with the supermodel and asked her our quickfire questions.
