It鈥檚 the end of an era! Alessandra Ambrosio has revealed that after 17 years of strutting down one of the most coveted runways in the fashion biz, the 2017 Victoria鈥檚 Secret fashion show in Shanghai will be her last.

Despite People鈥榮 reports that Ambrosio 鈥渄idn鈥檛 know鈥 if she would be leaving the runway after this year, Entertainment Tonight is exclusively confirming that the 36-year-old will be retiring her wings to spend more time with her five-year-old son, Noah, and nine-year-old daughter, Anja (both of whom flew to Shanghai with her model mama to watch her final strut).

The loss will surely be a blow for the iconic lingerie brand, with Ambrosio coming in just behind Adriana Lima for the longest-running 鈥 and most recognizable 鈥 angel.

The mother of two confessed that while she expected her last show will be emotional, she鈥檚 confident that the Angels will continue to remain a part of her life.

In addition to spending more time with her kids, the Brazilian bombshell also plans to use her extra time to focus on work projects, saying that she looks forward to continuing to build her successful clothing and swimwear empire, Ale by Alessandra.

It鈥檚 also safe to say the model-turned-actress, who has recently appeared in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Casino Royale, and Daddy鈥檚 Home, is ramping up her acting career: She鈥檚 currently starring in Daddy鈥檚 Home 2.

According to ET, she planned to close out her show by blowing a kiss to her daughter 鈥 who she called her 鈥渇avorite angel鈥 鈥 from the runway, and, as she told People, chowing down on some delicious grub. 鈥淚鈥檓 dying to eat everything. Everything.鈥 she told the mag. 鈥淲hatever comes to me. And I鈥檓 so excited for Thanksgiving next week.鈥
