The announcement post has already garnered more than 17,000 likes so far with congratulatory comments from her model friends and fans. Angolan model and former Miss Universe, Leila Lopes, commented, “Welcome baby Athena 💕.”
Borges has been posing in gorgeous maternity dresses with her baby bump since revealing the pregnancy in August. She has even leveraged her pregnancy to front fashion campaigns for maternity brands.
While Borges has kept the news of her expecting a baby open, it is not clear who’s the father of the child. But she’s however linked to an American actor, Duke Mandinga, who is reportedly her longtime boyfriend.
Congratulations to the model.
