Former supermodel Cindy Crawford doesn’t want her daughter following in her footsteps…at least not just yet. She recently told The Daily that her daughter Kaia Gerber will need to wait until she’s 17 to be a model. “At this point, she’s too young to pursue a career. There aren’t even a handful of jobs for a 10-year-old girl,” she said. This is quite an about-face from her initially enthusiastic attitude about her daughter’s foray into modeling. Kaia–who looks strikingly like her mom–was an overnight sensation when she modeled for Versace’s new line of children’s clothing back in January 2011. On the shoot, Cindy had said she didn’t want to be a “stage mom” and that she was excited for Kaia to have that experience. Donatella Versace even gushed about Kaia saying, “Like her mother, Kaia has a very special gift. The camera really, really loves her.”

Reportedly, Kaia is ok with her mom’s change of heart. According to Cindy, her daughter quipped, “I might model first… but then I want to be a baby nurse.” With those genes, Cindy’s daughter is sure to have a full schedule when the time comes. Here Cindy shows where her daughter’s stunning genes came from in these sexy shield-style shades.  –rpuccia
