Gisele shows off Christy Turlington's baby carriers

25 APRIL 2013

Gisele has been showing her support for fellow supermodel Christy Turlington recently, opting to carry her baby daughter Vivian Lake in an Ergobaby, a baby carrier designed by Christy.

The Brazilian beauty proudly posted photos on Instagram and Twitter of her little one tucked up in the carrier.

As one of the world's leading supermodels, Christy travelled the world and fronted campaigns for high-profile brands including Versace, Calvin Klein and Bally.

Since retiring from modelling, however, the mother-of-two has focused her attention onto more philanthropic issues. This latest venture has seen the 44-year-old found her own charity, Every Mother Counts.

The organisation aims to raise money to provide better medical care for pregnant women in poverty stricken countries. Christy teamed up with LA brand Ergobaby to customise a range of products. Each sale of Christy's design sees 10 per cent of the £149.90 go directly to the charity.

As well as a baby carrier, her design includes a small shoulders bag, changing bag and waist pack emblazoned with an African print.

 



Speaking about the collaboration, Christy said: "I founded Every Mother Counts to help raise awareness about the global tragedy of maternal mortality. Hundreds of thousands of women continue to die needlessly each year due to complications of pregnancy and childbirth but the truth is that we can prevent up to 90 per cent of those deaths.

"Through partnerships like this one with Ergobaby, we will be able to heighten awareness for maternal health and hopefully inspire millions of people to take action on this issue. Together we can make a difference."

The range goes on sale in the UK in May.

Gisele gave birth to baby Vivian Lake Brady in December 2012. She is the second child for Gisele and her husband Tom Brady, who already have son Benjamin Rein Brady, born in 2009.

Gisele began dating New England Patriots quarterback Tom in December 2006 and the couple married in 2009 in a small Catholic ceremony.
