Connolly raised former Miss Universe Australia Renae Ayris is working hard on her body in the hope of becoming the next Australian model to earn her Victoria's Secret wings.
"That would be a dream come true," the 23-year-old told reporters at Marie Claire's Barefoot in the Park party in Sydney this week when asked if she wanted to walk the Victoria's Secret catwalk like Aussie former Angel Miranda Kerr.
"That pathway is what I'm looking for."
Since moving to Sydney earlier this year, Ayris has been spotted working extra hard with her personal trainer Alexa Towersey.
"Some days, I want to have a lazy day but Alexa is right there," she said. "She just says 'Renae, get up!'"
Earlier this week, the former dancer showed that her hard work is paying off during a swimsuit shoot at Sydney's glamorous Tamarama beach.
