“I have a lot of friends who share a lot of their personal life on Instagram or social media, very publicly,” she revealed to Glamour U.K. for the magazine’s digital February cover interview. “I admire it and I think it’s great — but I think it’s all about personal choice.”

The Victoria’s Secret model, 33, continued: “Because my work requires me to be out there, I just decided my personal life will be quiet. That’s why it’s called personal, because it’s something for you and your family and I feel happy with it.”

The duo were also spotted spending some quality time with their little one at Disneyland on December 20. A source told Us Weekly at the time that the pair looked like “they were having such a fun time. When I saw them, they were leaving Disneyland and heading to California Adventure. He was carrying [Lea]. I was walking in between him and [Shayk], so I saw him look back laughing and gesturing for her to come up next to him.”

Added another onlooker: “He seemed super intense on where he was trying to go and made sure his family got there in one piece.”

The new mom gushed about the experience to W magazine in January, telling the magazine, “I always say that being a mom is one of the greatest things in the world. I don’t think it’s changed my life. It did change in a way to make me better. Family is the most important thing in the world.”
