In honor of Mother’s Day, we reached out to some of our favorites models (these super women have walked countless runways, posed for top photographers, and graced dozens of magazine covers) and asked them about what motherhood means to them. Here, Jourdan Dunn, Lais Ribeiro, Isabeli Fontana, Iselin Steiro, and Julia Stegner share their thoughts on being moms.
“My son is the light of my life and he has made every day brighter for me since he was born. My truest hope in this world is that I can always do the same for him.” - Jourdan Dunn

“Being a mother has given a true purpose to my life, I see the world in a new way through my children’s eyes. Watching and helping my kids learn and grow has been a wonderful and joyous experience. This mother’s day, I will celebrate the beautiful bond I have with my boys and the pride I have in being their mom.” - Isabeli Fontana

“When Sara was born, suddenly other things in my life became so much less important by comparison. The nicest surprise though, is to discover what a privilege it is to experience childhood again -this time through my daughter’s eyes.” - Iselin Steiro

“Being a mom has made me stronger and more vulnerable at the same time. Nothing can match the feeling of coming home to my daughter Emma after a long day of work.” - Julia Stegner
