Lais Ribeiro Gets Autism Symbol Tattoo For Her Son

Model Lais Ribeiro Honours Her Son With an Autism Awareness Ribbon Tattoo: "It's Beautiful"

Lais Ribeiro honoured her 10-year-old son Alexandre with a very meaningful tattoo. The 27-year-old Brazilian Victoria's Secret model, who modelled the brand's famous Fantasy Bra last year, got the Autism Awareness Ribbon tattooed on her side. In a heartfelt post, Lais disclosed that her son had been diagnosed with autism five years ago.

"I always wanted to do a second tattoo and I couldn't find anything meaningful enough till a meeting that I had couple weeks ago about autism and kids with special needs," Lais said on Instagram. "It's beautiful and perfect just the way I wanted to be." Lais also has her son's name tattooed on the back of her neck.

Lais frequently shares sweet pictures with her son on Instagram. The two recently celebrated Easter at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World, and Alexandre will sometimes visit his mom on set while she's working. Lais has received an outpouring of support after sharing a picture of her tattoo, which currently has more than 100,000 "likes."
