By the CNN Wire Staff

(CNN) -- Dutch supermodel Doutzen Kroes, whose sultry looks have graced catwalks and Victoria's Secret catalogues, says she is pregnant with her first child.

Kroes, 25, told Dutch TV program RTL Boulevard on Wednesday that she is 13 weeks along.

"Yes, I'm going to be a mother," she told the program by phone from New York. "It sounds so special. And I am very glad that I can finally share it with you."

The father is her boyfriend, Dutch DJ Sunnery James, RTL said.

The couple struggled to keep the news to themselves and wanted to tell everyone after they had the test done, she said. They told only parents and close friends at first.

Kroes said Victoria's Secret was "very happy" for her.

"I had to tell them very quickly, because every millimeter that I gain or lose affects them," she said, adding she receives unpaid leave from her job with the lingerie company.
