Q&A with Lily Aldridge

More than a supermodel, she’s a supermom of two, and an advocate for children. Lily Aldridge sits down with us to talk Mother’s Day gift picks, and lets us in on her important work with St. Jude.

When did you begin working with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital?

I’ve been working with St. Jude for close to 10 years now and I’m inspired and amazed every day by what they do. It’s such a warm and welcoming environment, where kids can be kids. It’s a hopeful place that allows families to focus on their kids rather than worry about how they’re going to pay for it.

Why is supporting St. Jude so important to you as a mother, model and entrepreneur?

Anything to do with children has always resonated deeply with me. St. Jude is an incredible hospital full of love & hope for so many! Any time I’ve been able to visit I’m blown away by all the thoughtful and meaningful details that are put into every inch of the hospital. What St. Jude does for children is the most important work in the world and I’m proud to support them any way I can.

Who, or what, inspires you most?

My children inspire me to be the best version of myself!!

Mother’s Day this year is obviously very different. How will you be celebrating and connecting with the women that mean the most to you?

My mom and I facetime almost every day. She is everything to me so Mother’s Day will be a celebration of her via facetime with lots of virtual hugs and kisses!!!

"My children are my pride and joy! They have taught me so much and I’m so grateful to them as they’ve allowed me to embark on this journey of Motherhood. They inspire me to be the best version of myself!!"


What do you want this Mother’s Day?

Spending the day with my family is the best part of Mother’s Day! I love how excited my daughter gets when she surprises me each year with breakfast in bed. I can’t wait to see my kids walk in with smiles on their faces, nothing sweeter!

How do you balance your work and your family?

Family is my number one priority, always. And I am so lucky to work with incredible clients that allow me to bring my daughter with me on trips. She gets to be a part of this magical journey with me.

How has motherhood changed your life?

My children are my pride and joy! They have taught me so much and I’m so grateful to them as they’ve allowed me to embark on this journey of Motherhood.

"Anything to do with children has always resonated deeply with me. St Jude is an incredible Hospital full of love & hope for so many!
