Karolína Kurková and Fiancé Reveal Baby is a Boy

It is shaping up to be quite a year for expectant mom Karolína Kurková.

“I’m definitely very excited,” the 25-year-old model told OK! at the Nelson Mandela Foundation Gala at Grand Central in New York City on Wednesday.

“This is my first pregnancy, my first child, my first engagement. I’m just enjoying it more than anything.”

Her enthusiasm was matched by fiancé Archie Drury, who revealed that their baby-on-the-way is a boy! “We’re thrilled,” he said. “We couldn’t be happier.” Karolína added,

“I always wanted to have kids and I love children, but being pregnant, the whole experience of having a baby inside of you that’s growing. I start feeling the kicks now and feel the baby, it’s just the most amazing thing. I just can’t explain.”

Baby boy is using those kicks to make known his preferences for a name!

“It’s really funny,” Karolína says. “I think he might have decided his name — the baby, not us…I don’t want to say it, but he knows his name because the baby responds when I talk about that name.”

That said, if she needs a third party to bounce ideas off of Karolína will have a captive audience in fellow Victoria’s Secret models Heidi Klum, Gisele Bündchen and Adriana Lima. “It’s like a baby moment,” she notes before joking, “It’s almost like the trend right now.” The moms-to-be have all been in touch with one another to offer congratulations, and Karolína says that their bumps send “a nice message for the fashion industry.”

“I think it’s awesome…A nice thing, showing that we are real women and we are normal and healthy and that’s why we can get pregnant…That we really take care of ourselves and our body. And we’re growing up. We’re not 17 or 18. We’re becoming women and becoming moms.”

It’s a transition Archie says he can’t wait to witness. “She’s going to be amazing,” he predicts. “I mean incredible. I get emotional when I think about her being a mom.”

She is stunning. For some reason I thought she was much older. Maybe because she’s been in the industry so long.

I’m sure I said this when Ale announced she was pregnant, and maybe Adriana but I am soo excited about this baby she is one of my favourite models.
So beautiful and down to earth in interviews.
She’s been a succesful model since she was 15, and she seems very humble and approachable.

She does not look 6months pregant, maybe its just the cut of the dress and the white against the white.
Adriana looks bigger than her and she is only 4months, it’s great to see how different woman carry.

“I get emotional when I think about her being a mom.” – what a beautiful thing to say!!

Beth on

So woman that can’t get pregnant aren’t normal and don’t take care of themselves??

April on

What? She’s talking about the idea that models are anorexic and don’t get their periods, and saying that’s clearly not true because they’ve all gotten pregnant.

Karolina looks great and with boys you usually carry lower and look smaller than you do with girls unless you never truly lost all the weight from your first pregnancy and had a loss in the middle

Engaged to be married and expecting a baby? Sounds pretty sweet to me. And she looks cute in that dress! :)

Jeanie on

Beth- I don’t think she meant anything by it. I think she meant that models are and can be normal in many ways too, in the sense that they doe find love, get married, and have babies. Personally, I love that the VS models are preggers. The babies are going to be adorable and these VS models have always proven that the waif look is not healthy and real woman have some curves. Congrats to her and the rest of them!

Shirelle on

wow i didnt know she was that far along that she was able to find out the sex! she is so small!

She looks fantastic, being pregnant makes her even more beautiful.

kai on

she is gorgeous! I had to laugh a little bit at the “it’s my first engagement”-part. I hope it’s your last, too, Karolina!;)

and I liked her comments about models being “normal” very much.

juliet on

One of my favorite popular models out there. i like the fact she’s never been skeletal, she’s thin but always has womanly curves. she’s one of those women who even pregnant they look beautiful and they just glow

I clicked on this link to read the story because I myself am having a baby boy. I like reading pregnancy stories and such. I am happy for Karolina but something really bothered me.. was this little bit… “I think it’s awesome…A nice thing, showing that we are real women and we are normal and healthy and that’s why we can get pregnant…That we really take care of ourselves and our body. And we’re growing up. We’re not 17 or 18. We’re becoming women and becoming moms.” … I found that to be bothersome because the women in the world who are pregnant can still have someone to look up to… a pregnant model.. who is happy with her life and such! but it sounds very demeaning in the context it was used ‘we’re not 17 or 18′ . well i am 18 and expecting my son 2-3 months after my 19th birthday. and there is nothing wrong with that.

I think she is just referring to the fact that most models are severly underweight, which can cause fertility issues. I think she’s just trying to be a good role model because she is healthy and proves you don’t have to be stick skinny model to be beautiful.
