Behati Prinsloo stronger than ever ahead of Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Behati Prinsloo has shared a body positive message ahead of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

The Namibian model is set to make a return to the runway at the upcoming lingerie spectacle in New York City, having taken a three-year hiatus from the show after welcoming daughters Dusty Rose, two, and eight-month-old Gio Grace, with her Maroon 5 frontman husband Adam Levine.

Behati has been uploading videos from her gym sessions on social media in the lead-up to her next gig, and on Tuesday (06Nov18), she posted a close-up of her svelte figure on her Instagram Story.

"After two babies back to back, doing the @victoriassecret show felt like a distant dream haha," the 30-year-old captioned the snap. "But I'm so proud to be back and proud of my body and what it can do, feeling stronger than ever and healthier than ever with two beautiful baby girls. #girlpower."

Behati will be joined by models including Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Josephine Skriver, Lais Ribeiro and Martha Hunt at the show on Thursday, as well as Victoria's Secret veterans like Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel.

And Candice, 30, echoed Behati's words in a post on her own Instagram page too, as she and fiance Hermann Nicoli welcomed their second child together, a son named Ariel, in June.

"I love what @behatiprinsloo said today and I'd like to elaborate... I'm so excited to feel strong again after having two babies. It's definitely a process feeling 'normal' again. Our bodies become a vessel and it's a mind-blowing process making a human being. I'm far from perfect and every mother should give themselves time to recover and not have to focus on what they look like. It's about how you FEEL that is important. You are important," she wrote. "I can't tell you how proud I am of my body and what it has given me... Now, I'm ready to put myself out there again and this time (I'm) doing it for all the mamas out there working and taking care of their babies because we deserve to feel beautiful and powerful."

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, featuring musical guests including Rita Ora, The Chainsmokers and Halsey, will air in the U.S. on the ABC network on 2 December.
