Brazilian goddess/supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio may be a certified Angel, but that doesn't mean she still doesn't fall victim to the predictabilities of human life—namely, nerves.

The 34-year-old pro sat down with E! News to talk about the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airing December 8, and she got candid about getting butterflies. 

"I do get nervous before every show," she said. "This was my 15th show and I was super nervous, like when it was my time to go on the runway, I could feel the butterflies in my stomach. I was like, 'Oh my God, push me if I don't go.' But we do the whole preparation for months, working out, taking care of the diet, taking care of the skin and the hair, everything. So really, you just breathe. It's kind of like that yoga thing, just breathe and go for it and enjoy the moment."

As for newbies Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner? "Gigi and Kendall are great on the runway, they're pros already," she said. "I've done a lot of fashion shows with them, so they don't need any advice, they know what they're doing. And they were just so cute together. I saw them interacting. When you're backstage it's kind of crazy, we're everywhere, but they did great."

It might be just us, but we think Ambrosio's got nothing to worry about.
