Doutzen Kroes Expecting First Child

Make room for another model mama!

Victoria’s Secret stunner Doutzen Kroes is expecting her first child with her fiancé, DJ Sunnery James, a rep for the model confirms.

“If I have any questions about being a mom I can always call Heidi or Alessandra,” Kroes, 25, tells PEOPLE.

“Sunnery and I are in the clouds,” the excited mama-to-be — who’s due in January — reveals to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. “The critical first three months have gone well and I feel good.”

So good in fact that Kroes, who’s the face of L’Oreal Paris, is still modeling — but admits she will only do so until she begins to show.

She has been my new favorite VS Angels for a while now. And I love her name. Congrats to her and Sunnery.

Philippa on

Already read this yesterday on a Dutch website. Great news! Congrats to Doutzen :D

Allie-Rose on

With a mom like Doutzen, that baby’s going to be gorgeous!
Congrats to Doutzen and Sunnery

Note to VS – with all your Angels getting pregnant, you should seriously consider a maternity line!

Josie on

Never heard of her…very pretty though.
How do you pronounce her name?

Robyn on

Allie-Rose, that’s a great idea!

Jennifer on

Josie – it’s dowt-zuhn cruise.

Julianna on

Allie-Rose, that’s an awesome idea!

It’s going to be a gorgeous child! And with such adorable playmates: Karolina’s Tobin, Adriana’s Valentina, Alessandra’s Anja, Gisele’s Benjamin… I’d pay to see that!

I can’t wait for VSFS. Doutzen is going to be out, unfortunately, but Adriana is going to be back, yay!

shirabee on

Jonelle on

I guess you can’t argue that VS lingerie must do it’s job!

Josie on

Thanks Jennifer…it has a nice flow to it.

Barbi on

It must be wonderful to be born with such a beautiful face that you can make money because of your looks. No doubt her baby will be beautiful too. Congratulations.

Angie on

She’s amazing!

Dana on

Ha ha Jonelle, very true :) She is STUNNING, I bet her baby is a girl….can’t wait, congrats!!!

Nikol on

I’m sure Doutzen will look amazing with a baby belly, she always does ofcourse.
I also think that baby will be gorgeous, but I’m even more curious about the name they will come up with. Because with parents with both such unique names you can’t stay behind right.

(Sorry for my bad English)

sfmom on

OMG. Gorgeous baby coming soon.
She is my favorite VS model. When I visualize what I want to look like when I’m out of blubbery post-baby body and back to health and fitness – it’s her. She’s amazing.
Congratulations!

my. favorite. model. EVER.

i am so happy for her. i hope they pick a beautiful dutch name. i LOVE doutzen even though i am mexican LOL i’d use it.

Allie-Rose on

Josie – I could be wrong, but as a European, I’d pronounce it Doot-zen

P.M.B on

GOD bless this couple and their baby!

Nikol on

@ Allie-Rose: no you really pronounce it ‘dowt-zuhn’ (so the first part like the word ‘down’ but the n is ofcourse a t, and and the second part like the word ‘sun’ but with a z) like jennifer said. I am from the Netherlands so…

Jade on

@Josie and Allie-Rose

No, you don’t pronounce it like that.
The ‘ou’ in Doutzen is like the English ‘Ouch’ (but -ch )

I know because I’m from Holland, where Doutzen comes from.

Jade on

Oh Nikol was faster then me.

He Nikol, jij ook hier? :P
Grappig dat ze niet weten hoe ze het moeten uitspreken.

mae on

Congrats to them!

Allie-Rose on

@ Nikol and Jade – I never said that’s how you pronounce Doutzen. I did say I could be wrong

maybelline on

I bet she’s gonna have a beautiful baby!!! Sunnery James is not bad looking either…:P

Mckinley on

@ Allie-Rose
Yes you said you may have been wrong and indeed you were, so Jade & Nikol both helpfully corrected you for the benefit of the discussion. Maybe try not being so defensive and thank them for their input?

Melissa on

Gefiliciteerd Doutzen!

jildou on

DOUTZEN means DOVE!

Jade on

Doutzen is by the way not a common name in Holland, it’s very unique.

cris on

I was wondering the pronunciation as well…thanks Jennifer for clearing it up!

pearlies4girlies on

Doutzen is quite a frequently used name in the northern part of The Netherlands, in the province called Friesland. They speak Frisian there (Doutzen speaks Frisian at home) and Doutzen is a Frisian name. I am from there as well and know quite a few women called Doutzen.
