Despite the fact that supermodels have super-tight schedules and jobs full of fashion shows and photo shoots, they still manage to become mothers — some of them even several times. And although nature isn’t always generous, the most beautiful women in the fashion industry are lucky — just look at them and their children!
Enlighten has looked through photos of today’s most beautiful models and found out how much of their “beauty genes” got passed down to their children.
