Who is Ana Braga?
Ana Braga was born on 4 December 1981, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and is a model as well as a dancer, best known from gaining a lot of fame featuring in numerous iterations of the men’s magazine “Playboy”. As a dancer, she’s worked alongside numerous popular artists, including Pitbull, Lil Jon, and Charo.
The Riches of Ana Braga
As of early-2020, Ana Braga’s net worth is estimated to be over $1.5 million, earned through success in her various endeavors. Her modeling work and constant features by publications have helped in building her wealth. Her work as a dancer has also helped her earn a significant income.
Early Life and Career Beginnings
Ana grew up in a family of models, with her grandmother, mother and aunt all working as models for most of their lives. She grew up knowing a lot about the industry, and has subsequently modeled for most of her life. She spent most of her youth in Brazil, where she did both print and catwalk modeling. In the 1990s she moved to the US, and her popularity continued to grow.Aside from her attractive looks, other reasons for her fame are her openness towards sexuality, and sex appeal which attracted the magazine “Playboy”, one of the most recognized brands in the world.
It is responsible for popularizing the sexual revolution, and is well-known for its features of nude or semi-nude models called Playmates. Over the years, it has established itself at the forefront of men’s magazines, with many women considering it an honor to be considered for inclusion in the magazine, known to feature the hottest women in the world. It is also known for its feature articles of popular celebrities, including politicians, novelists, directors, actors, athletes, and many more.
Super Playmate and Other Features
The Spanish, Portuguese and Brazilian Braga’s features in “Playboy” elevated her status.
Not only was she featured in the main US version of the magazine, but in various iterations of the magazine, mostly centered in areas where there is a strong demand for her Latina look, which included editions of Playboy in Romania, Brazil and Venezuela. This continued fame brought about by “Playboy” led to many labeling her as world-class Playmate and the super Playmate, as it is hard for Playboy models to find continuous features in the magazine, which has a lot of competition in terms of aspiring models.
Other publications started to approach her with work, and she was featured in “Fighters Only”, “Cosmopolitan”, and “Ultimate MMA”. News websites also began covering her, such as “The Daily Star”, “People”, and “TMZ”.
She gained the nickname Celebrity Model due to her numerous news features, and the fact that the paparazzi were highly interested in taking photos of her. She also collaborated with the publication “Southern Vixens”, for which she wrote two columns for some time.
Fitness and Dancing
Like many models and dancers, Ana advocated for a healthy lifestyle which she discussed in detail in several of her columns, including learning Pilates which she practices regularly, and has become a certified instructor. The fitness system is known for controlled movements that focus on balance, coordination, flexibility, breathing and developing strong core muscles.
Studies have shown that Pilates improves overall balance and muscle conditioning, though there is limited evidence to prove that it alleviates long term problems such as lower back pain.
Ana also maintains a healthy lifestyle – she doesn’t do drugs, drinks moderately, doesn’t smoke, and regularly goes to the gym. She is also talented when it comes to dancing too, and has worked several gigs as a professional – in the 2003 Vibe Awards, she was featured alongside Pitbull and Lil Jon when she danced to their performances, and has also performed alongside the artist Charo.
She has expressed her love for dancing multiple times, and has traveled around the world performing; some of her most memorable trips include to Mexico, Hong Kong and China.
Advocacies and Openness
Ana is a big advocate for pet adoption – she is a pet lover, and dislikes how many pets are maltreated; she advocates educating the general public about adoption as opposed to buying a pet, and has expressed a desire to adopt as many as she can if time and income can allow it. She believes that people have a high chance of encountering purebred animals in shelters. Pet adoption is also a transformational experience for her, as it means that she is saving animals from often squalid conditions.

She is also an advocate against cyberbullying, especially since it is an overlooked issue that is prevalent in today’s internet-focused society.
Apart from her physical figure, a lot of people are attracted to her due to her openness when it comes to romance and sexuality. She is very confident sexually, and is not afraid to wear more revealing outfits. She also rates her sexual performance a 10 out of 10. She loves kissing and says that a great kisser is her biggest turn-on. She is also interested in a partner that she could consider her best friend.
Ana Braga is still single, and despite her constant openness when it comes to describing her feelings towards romance or sex, she has not been spotted with any long term partner. She prefers to keep that aspect away from the public, not talking about it often. She is a Christian and has expressed her beliefs towards God being the reason for the success in her career, despite many opposing the idea that she could become a model. In recent months, she’s been exploring an increasing interest in music.
