Dutch model Doutzen Kroes credits motherhood for making her more successful. She explains that the happier she is, the better her life has become and having a family has increased her happiness greatly. Recently after welcoming her second child with husband Sunnery James, Doutzen gushed about her home life:
''I've always known that beauty is also from the inside - if you're happy, that will shine through - I've always believed that, but since I've started having a family, I became even more happy, and I think it even shows more. I've also become more successful since I've become a mother. To me, that's like proof that if you're happy that's good for you, and people see that.''
The model also says she doesn't like to punish herself when it comes to working out, and if she wants to spend time with her newborn instead, she doesn't feel bad about that choice:
''If I really don't feel like it, I'll change my plans and choose to be with my baby. If that moment makes me happier, I think that's more important. If I've been working a lot and I've been away from my kids, then I don't go to the gym. It's okay to miss a day. I tell myself not to feel bad about it, too, because then it's a waste if you choose not to do something and feel bad.''
