Honeymoon baby for Lieschen Botes


Her wind-blown blonde hair, sultry pout and hot body have made her the queen of South African swimwear models. And she was truly sexy as the Wonderbra girl.

Now Lieschen Botes is going to be a mother. Oh, did we mention she got married earlier this year? Sorry, fans!

“We found out I was pregnant in October,” an excited Lieschen (26) says by phone from Welkom. She and her husband, Rogerio Vieira (31), who’s of Portuguese descent, live in the Free State mining town.

They were married in May on the Sea of Galilee and honeymooned in Mauritius in September.

Just weeks later she found out she was expecting. “It’s a honeymoon baby,” she says. “It’s so funny; just two days before I found out I was pregnant I jokingly told my agent I was ready to do mommy photoshoots – little knowing a baby was on the way.”

The overjoyed couple have already chosen names. “We’re thinking of Juliana if it’s a girl and Xavio for a boy,” Rogerio says proudly.
