Lily Maud Aldridge (born November 15, 1985) used to be one of the lesser known Victoria's Secret models, but that doesn't mean she isn't just as gorgeous as the rest.

Lily has been a Victoria's Secret "Angel" since 2010, walking the runway with the likes of Sigrid Agren, Candice Swanepoel and all the other top international fashion models.

Like many other top Victoria's Secret models, Lily is friends with Taylor Swift. They hang out together - accompanied by Taylor's rather burly bodyguard.

Thus, Lily is amongst the elite of the elite. Even other Victoria's Secret models are jealous of the Angels, who get prized long-term contracts and are featured in premium advertisements, such as during the Super Bowl.

She broke through big time when she became a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covergirl, appearing as a rookie alongside Chrissy Tiegen and Nina Agdal for the cover of the issue's 50th anniversary in 2014. That is a rare honor indeed, even if she did have to share the cover.

Cover girl!

You don't get better references than that as a model. She's a good looking girl. I realize I didn't have to say that. But she is.

Lily, a 5-foot-9 stunner, met her husband, Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, in 2007 at the Coachella Festival. The couple married on May 12, 2011, at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. Aldridge gave birth to their daughter, Dixie Pearl Followill, on June 21, 2012, in Nashville, Tennessee.

The birth didn't put Lily out of action for very long.

"I ate so much salmon for the last two months -- you wouldn't believe it!" she recalled. "Literally, I cannot see salmon for like eight months, I ate so much of it." This was all to get back in action for a November fashion show, at which she stunned as usual.

"I tried to eat really clean foods before the show, and I just had a baby, so I was eating overtime to keep with breast feeding," Aldridge explained. Nearly every day after giving birth, Aldridge said, she "ate really clean foods: all organic fruits and vegetables. I can't wait to eat a burger."

Always willing to do good deeds, Lily participated in a charitable ad campaign funded by online retailer Shopbop that involved mother-daughter combinations. Shopbop hired famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier to shoot Lily and her daughter Dixie wore tunics designed by Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump for nonprofit organization Born Free, which has as its goal eliminating mother-to-child HIV transmission in Africa. Among the other models in the campaign were Sasha Pivovarova, Karolina Kurkova and Chanel Iman.

Lily has good genes. She is the daughter of English artist Alan Aldridge and Playboy Playmate of the month Laura Lyons (February 1976). Her half-sister Saffron also was a model, as was her sister Ruby. Obviously, good looks run in the family.

Lily has about 5 million people following her Instagram page. She keeps it up to date, so it is a good follow if you are a fan.

Heidi states that she was overweight as a girl, which subjected her to ridicule. She lost the weight and people began to notice her. Who says that peer pressure doesn't sometimes work! She won the 1993 Elite Model Look World Final, beating out thousands of other girls, and her career was off and running.

Some quotes from Heidi about her health issues:
1. I had a bad habit with eating (in high school). My parents were divorced. I don't know exactly what got me to eat, but I definitely ate my feelings away, I think. And I was fat as a result.
2. I've learned that if you are on a special regimen, and you take care of yourself and if you sometimes you fall off (the diet) you pay the price.
3. I was born with eczema, and when I was younger I didn't know a lot about what food to eat so I was covered with it.
4. I knew something had to change because I just couldn't live with the pain of, you know, being fat and being told I was fat and being made fun of.
5. I entered a modeling competition with Elite Models and I had no idea really about anything in fashion.
