Alessandra Ambrosio to spend New Year's Eve at the beach

Alessandra Ambrosio

Alessandra Ambrosio will be heading home to her native Brazil to celebrate New Year's Eve at the beach with her family.

The retired Victoria's Secret Angel, who resides in California, will be flying back to her native Brazil to ring in the New Year with her family and take part in all the Brazilian traditions.

"I'll be in Brazil so I just get to spend time with my family by the beach," the model told New York Post's gossip column Page Six of her New Year's plans. "We have many traditions in Brazil for New Year's. Everyone wears white. There's a lot of fireworks. Everyone goes to the beach. You have to jump seven waves and you make a wish in each wave, and then we throw flowers to the goddess of the ocean. So there's a lot of traditions that we do!"

The 38-year-old, who shares 11-year-old daughter Anja and seven-year-old son Noah with her former fiance Jamie Mazur, already has a resolution in mind for 2020 but she didn't want to share it with the outlet, with her explaining, "Otherwise it's not going to happen! But it's always something good."

The catwalk beauty spent Christmas in Santa Monica with her children and new partner Nicolo Oddi this year, but she explained that if she goes to Brazil for the festive holiday, she will spend it having fun in the sun because it's summer in the country.

"I'm from Brazil and (traditions are) very different because it's always summer there and it's nice and warm," she said. "So Christmas is usually by the beach and super hot ... for me, it's all about just hanging with the whole family together, family and friends and just making the most of it."
