Who would have thought that this Dutch beauty wanted to be a professional speed skater before entering the modelling world? She grew up feeling more like a tomboy and cared very little about her looks. When she was 18, Doutzen Kroes applied for a chance to model at a modelling agency in the Netherlands with the hope of making extra money. As expected, she was taken and that was how her journey began to the world-class supermodel she is today.
Date of Birth: January 23, 1985
Zodiac Sign: Aquarius
Despite being a beauty queen, Kroes advocates that girls should be celebrated more for their intelligence than for their beauty. It is however no wonder that Kroes is as beautiful as she is; she is surrounded by great genes. There is another model in the family and Doutzen is now a happy mother. She is on a top position of the highest earning world-class models but remains a family girl at heart. Get ready for some overload of cuteness as you read on.

Leistra who was once a nurse is a huge fan of her daughters and is proud of the success they have become today.
Johan Kroes (father)

Very little is known about Johan other than he is a psychotherapist and the father to the two beautiful Kroes daughters. Some years back, news got out that he had been included in a Scotland rehab. Himself and his wife were professional skaters in the 1970s and because of them, Doutzen initially considered a career in skating.
Rens Kroes (younger sister from same parents)
Date of Birth: April 30, 1987
Zodiac Sign: Taurus
Rens is the only sibling to Doutzy (as she is fondly called) and she is as daunting as her elder sister. Rens is a supermodel herself but she also is a columnist, Dutch writer and a popular food blogger. When she was much younger, the second Kroes daughter wanted to be a singer but her heart was eventually won by her grandparents’ organic farm. That was where she picked the first interest in healthy organic foods and when she started blogging, she created a niche for herself with healthy foods only.
The two sisters have a huge semblance and they maintain a very close relationship. Rens is the author of the book ‘Power food’ where she shares more on everything healthy eating. The stunning nutritionist boasts of a huge followership on her instagram with feeds made up of gorgeous cooking snaps and a series of workout videos.

Kroes started dating DJ and Producer Sunnery in August 2009. About a year later, the former face of L’Oreal broke the hearts of men all over the world as she walked down the aisle with her black lover in Amsterdam – apparently, Sunnery couldn’t have been the only one drunk on her killer physique.
The endearing pair are never ashamed to display their love for each other in public, in fact they are known for their love for public display of affection. Since they got married, the supermodel has done a great job at multitasking as she enjoys a sizzling romance with her husband, is a great mother and remains on her A-game career wise.
Phyllon Joy Gorre (son with Sunnery James Gorre)
Date of Birth: January 21, 2011

Less than six months after her marriage to James, the Dutch supermodel became mother to a cute bundle of joy. After the birth of her son, like new wine, Kroes became a better version of herself. She confessed that since she has become a mother, she has become more successful in her career. Doutzy says beauty radiates from the inside of one and if one is truly happy, it would definitely be seen. Her family made her happier and people have seen this proof.
Phyllon is growing to be a cute little boy and is super proud of his new status as a big brother. He has his father’s skin colour and is his exact splitting image. We can’t say whether he would follow his mother’s line of career or become a DJ like his father but one thing we are sure of is that the cure Phyllon would grow up to be a highly fashionable gentle man.
