Camila Alves is Pregnant with Her Third Child and Other Model Moms with Multiples

Yahoo Contributor Network

Good news for "Magic Mike" star Matthew McConaughey: He and wife Camila Alves are expecting their third child together, the actor confirmed on Twitter.

"happy birthday America, more good news, Camila and I are expecting our 3rd child, God bless, just keep livin," he tweeted on the Fourth of July.

The third McConaughey baby will join siblings Levi, 4, and Vida, 2. The pair married in May after several years of dating and said they couldn't wait to have more kidlets. Looks like they got started on it right away!

Alves isn't just a trophy wife - she's a model, television host and handbag designer. All of these jobs - along with three kids - will definitely be a challenge, but she can get advice from these other model moms with multiples.

Heidi Klum

German born model Heidi Klum makes her career and family life seem easy - the "Project Runway" model is mother to four children, including three with soon-to-be ex Seal. Besides modeling and television, Klum has a jewelry line and other big projects.

How does she manage it all? Klum says she's not perfect.

"Keeping it all together as a modern woman means multitasking, especially when you work," she told Good Housekeeping. "I think you always need to try your best, but at the same time you can only do what you can do, and you don't need to beat yourself up about it. I'm not white-picket-fence perfect."

Uh, we beg to differ, Heidi.

Cindy Crawford

Cindy Crawford might not actively work the runway anymore, but the world's biggest supermodel still has plenty to do. The curvy Crawford is mom to two children, Kaia and Presley, with husband Rande Gerber.

Apparently she's a pretty good mom, according to Kaia.

"She's the best mom in the word," Kaia said in a Mother's Day commercial for JC Penney. "She's so nice and I can just hang out with her and have fun."

Still, Crawford isn't afraid to be a mom: She's put the kibosh on Kaia's budding model career - for now.

"At this point, she's too young to pursue a career," Crawford said earlier this year. "There aren't even a handful of jobs for a 10-year-old girl."


Christy Turlington

Christy Turlington - like Crawford - ruled the runway during the '90s. These days, she's focused more on her charity work and two children with actor Ed Burns, Grace and Finn.

The model started a charity - Every Mother Counts - to combat child mortality after her own birth experience almost ended tragically.

"I met pregnant women who had walked miles for many hours just to get clean water," she told The U.K. Daily Mail of starting her non-profit. "If they are lucky enough to be driven to a hospital to give birth, it can take three hours across rough terrain. Meanwhile, I live in downtown Manhattan and could take a cab to my beautiful, clean birthing center."

Model with a mission: We like it.
