The model, 28, spoke with GQ in a frank and honest interview, responding in horror when asked if she would ever consider having a family of her own: "Oh God, no! It's unacceptable to me.

"The very idea of having children brings out this deep revulsion in me."

Valeria went on to insist that becoming a parent is the ultimate act of selfishness, saying: "Most people have children to fulfil their own ambitions, not to give anything.

"They don't think about what they can give this child, what they can teach her. They just try to shape her according to some weird script—whatever they couldn't do in life, like becoming a writer or a doctor.

"Or some woman who's almost 30 and thinks no one needs her, she says, 'Oh, I'll have a kid. He will love me and become my reason to live.' And then this kid becomes a soccer ball she and her boyfriend will kick back and forth."

She added, vehemently: "I'd rather die from torture.

"Because the worst thing in the world is to have a family lifestyle."

The model also recently revealed that she is now converting to "Breatharianism", which means she no longer eats food or drinks water. Instead, she is training herself to live off light and air, consuming "cosmic micro-food".

She said: "In recent weeks I have not been hungry at all; I'm hoping it's the final stage before I can subsist on air and light alone."

Unsurprisingly, the dangerous practise has been criticised for being potentially lethal - and several practitioners of "Breatharianism" have reportedly died of starvation.
