Alessandra Ambrósio and Anja Take Flight

06/03/2009 at 06:00 PM ET

Special delivery coming down the line! Model Alessandra Ambrósio cuddles with 9-month-old daughter Anja Louise while waiting for their bags to clear security on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

We wonder where they were off to — maybe Alessandra’s native Brazil?

The Victoria’s Secret Angel, 28, recently shared that she hopes to help her daughter embrace both of her cultures, saying, “I’m going to raise her both places. Half Brazil and half American, that’s how it goes. In Brazil, there’s this thing where people are really happy. Whatever they go through in life, they’re really happy, and that’s one thing I want her to feel like. Here in America, people are very professional. They’re serious and that’s another thing I want her to have.”

I think its wonderful that ALessandra will help her child embrace American culture as well as her native brazillian. I never knew that Americans came off as being so serious. Litle Anja is precious,seems like she has her mother beautiful eyes.

I actually think she looks like Alessandra, but with her dad’s face shape and chin. She’s so adorable, and she’s gotten so big since the last photo of her that was posted. 🙂
