Say hello to Victoria's Secret newest Angel: Barbara Palvin! 

The 25-year-old Hungarian model has officially been anointed as one of the lingerie giant's global ambassadors, after the news was announced via Instagram:

Speaking to People about her latest gig, Palvin revealed: "I've been keeping this a secret for three months. It's the ultimate career high!"

"When I was 13, I saw the VS Fashion Show and said, 'One day I will get there.' Three or four years later, I shot with Victoria's Secret PINK for the first time," Palvin continued. "Now, I feel like I was destined to do this. Victoria's Secret caught me at the perfect time, because I'm finally happy with myself and my body."

Palvin first walked in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show—one of the most coveted jobs for a model—in 2012, and has been photographed in their campaigns multiple times since then. She made a return to the VSFS in 2018.

There were times where I let my own thoughts hold me back and it was a hard climb away from those but my family, my team, Ed, and everyone at VS they were always there to support me and uplift me."

"I am proud to represent Hungary, and most importantly, all of you in this new chapter of my life!"

As an Angel, Palvin joins the current set, including Candice Swanepoel, Behati Prinsloo, Elsa Hosk and Lily Aldridge. Past Angels have included everyone from Gisele Bündchen, Adriana Lima, Heidi Klum and Australia's own Miranda Kerr.

The model's boyfriend, actor Dylan Sprouse, also had a sweet reaction to his girlfriend's appointment as Angel. He wrote on Instagram Stories: "Victoria's Secret's newest angel, very proud of you miss. Hard work pays off."
