Doutzen Kroes' daughter is still just a fetus, but it sounds like one of her possible career paths won't be an option at all. Mama Kroes might be raking in the coins now thanks to her modeling career, but being a pretty face and twirling in designer dresses is not the fate she wants for her unborn child.

“Instead of saying, ‘You’re so beautiful,’ I’ll say, ‘You’re smart,’ so she’ll have different aspirations in life than beauty and modeling," she told Page Six.  "Though I love my job, I’m not changing the world. I’d love for her to study and to have different aspirations. We need to teach girls they can become presidents, and it’s not about beauty all the time.”

Doutzen's right—little girls need to be taught that they're worth so much more than their physical appearance. Just a few months ago, Kroes also told the rag that she felt "guilty" about her modeling career "now that [she is] in this profession that makes certain girls insecure."

Perhaps she doesn't want her daughter to live with the crippling guilt that comes with being genetically blessed, fawned over and highly paid.
