Ali may have won Miss USA in 1996, but she has other plans for her daughter to shine — preferably not on the stage of a beauty pageant. She tells EXCLUSIVELY why she doesn’t want her 4-year-old girl doing pageants.

Ali Landry, 39, garnered worldwide attention when she was crowned Miss USA in 1996. But now as a busy mom of two — with another on the way! — the former beauty queen is focusing on her family, and making her her daughter has other hobbies besides pageants.

Ali Landry: My Daughter Is Outgoing

The gorgeous model and actress, who tied the knot with her hubby Alejandro Gomez Monteverde in 2006, got her start as the winner of one of the biggest beauty pageants in the world. So would she let her daughter Estela follow in her footsteps?

“Probably not,” Ali tells EXCLUSIVELY.

“My daughter has a very outgoing personality, so here in Los Angeles there are so many creative outlets for her to be expressive,” she adds. “There’s theater and all these other things she’s offered here so I don’t think we would really do that, but knowing her, she would probably love it.”

Ali & Alejandro Stopping At Baby Number 3?

She already has her hands full with her four-year-old daughter Estela and her baby boy Marcelo, 20 months, and now she’s pregnant with baby number three!

“I think three is a good number,” she tells “I come from a family of three and so does my husband, so three is a good number.”

“When I was pregnant with my son, I said I would for sure love another child,” she says. “I am very happy with three, but I am also open for more. I won’t say no, because I don’t know. I also have not gotten rid of one piece of baby clothes; I keep all my stuff just in case. If it happens, it will be incredible but we are happy with three.”

Ali Landry Shares Her Secret To Beautiful Skin

Ali, who teamed up with Palmers again during her third pregnancy, swears by Palmer’s Coco Butter for her baby bump and stretch marks while she’s pregnant. She used the product when she was pregnant with Marcelo, and is excited to be using it again with her third pregnancy!

“I had already been using it and taking care of my skin, and I was such a fan and then now,” she tells “To do it again this year with my third, I have had incredible results and my skin looks amazing.”

“I have tried every product under the sun — you know being in this business you really try everything — and I feel like this specific line, my skin stays moisturized 24/7,” she adds. “I’ve never experienced this type of moisture on my skin, its really incredible.”

Keep an eye out for her new TV ads for Palmers — her adorable kids will be in them with her!
