My queen is taking her final walk tonight on the Victoria's Secret Fashion... I've loved her since I was 10 years old and no other womans beauty even came close to hers...I'll be tuning in for you queen @AdrianaLima ❤
"It's my 18th Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and throughout the years I thought that I would get more relaxed and less anxious," the model, who walked her first Victoria’s Secret runway in 1999, told ET. "But I'm still nervous and I'm still anxious about it. It doesn't go away."
"I missed one [show] because I gave birth to Valentina," Lima, who is also mother to daughter Sienna, 6, said. "My children will be here tonight. It's going to be the first time watching the show. I can't wait to see their reaction… I want to represent myself well under the eyes of my children. I hope I will make them happy."
