Model Coco Rocha's 'Insane' List Of Things She Won't Do Because She's A Jehovah's Witness

Model Coco Rocha says "My faith is everything." Getty

Model Coco Rocha has 1.8 million contacts on Google Plus, nearly a half million Twitter followers, and 299,258 Instagram followers, but very few know of the high profile model's devout religious beliefs.

"My faith is everything," Rocha, 24, declares in the new issue of Du Jour magazine about being a lifelong Jehovah's Witness.

"There aren't many Witnesses who are in the public eye. I can't even name any," laments Rocha, "It's hard sometimes when you're there alone. You're not there with someone who can hold your hand and say we'll do this together."

One person who will hold the model's hand is her husband who manages her career -- and is also a Jehovah's Witness.

Together, the two go door to door with their congregation on a weekly basis to educate people about their faith.

"Some people think we're a pushy religion, but if you're not interested, just say so," says Rocha

Rocha has been a Jehovah's Witness her entire life, but she wasn't baptized until 2009 at the age of 21. (The religion requires that followers be old enough to make their own decisions before fully committing.)

Once committed, Rocha changed her modeling contract to include many new clauses listing things she was no longer comfortable with, such as nudity, lingerie and sheer clothing, among other things.

"My list [of what I won't do] compared with any other model's is insane," Rocha explains. "No religious artifacts, no government artifacts. If I'm shooting with a male model, what is he exactly doing with me? What is he wearing? If I'm working with other models, what are they wearing? Are they playing something that I don't want?"

"In the beginning, the clients would say, 'This is too much,' but over time, the ones I liked kept working with me. They'd say, 'It's not too much. Coco can still be Coco. She still gives 100 percent when she's on a photo shoot.' It's just my boobs aren't out. And I don't have a cigarette in my hand, and I'm not making out with a guy. And it's all fine if you want to do that. I don't judge. My besties do Victoria's Secret. I just don't do it."

But apparently dancing is still A-OK. Check out Rocha in the below commercial for White House Black Market clothing chain:

How can you not like Coco? We all hope she keeps her head on straight, because that is not a given when operating in the stratosphere. But then, it is not a given anywhere.

Exactly

By some of our JW  Celebrities I am little puzzling, sorry :(  bec. the ways also changing !  I informed me about some links and pages of Coco. Example, by FB is NO sign of a JW  and no word about Jehovah, nothings...  only her many Model photos !

I remember Coco from the German TV report, GNTM / Germany's next Top Model !  Her daughter got already after her birth an own Instagram account,  hmm...   I am sure, the most JW sisters not doing that way.  Does Coco have time for meetings and Conventions ?  bec. Topmodels very often per plane on the way...  Seems, her job is on first place ?  We don't know that !  Only Jehovah can see all❤️

This posting is from 2013, 16.Jan.  -  I'm meanwhile very careful and skeptical. Not believe all at once :)  more rightminded thinking.

A celebrity JW - we have precious few of them - would necessarily keep a low profile out of modesty, in addition to any business reasons. Imagine how she might be idolized by immature Witnesses otherwise. 

Still, if she wants my seal of approval, I'd better see a literature cart on her next photo shoot.

Personal life

Rocha has been a devout Jehovah's Witnesssince childhood, and in a 2013 interview stated that she still participates with Jehovah's Witnesses in their model of Jesus' preaching work of going preaching door-to-door to share the Bible with others. She calls herself "a Christian first and a model second", and says that due to her faith she will not pose nude, with cigarettes, nationalistic emblems or religious icons.[23]

Rocha married artist James Conran on June 9, 2010.[36] Conran later became her part-time manager.[23] On October 6, 2014, Rocha announced via her Facebook page, that she and her husband were expecting their first child, a girl, due in Spring of 2015. Rocha gave birth to her daughter, Ioni James Conran, on March 28, 2015.[37]

My opinion? It's between her and Jehovah!

Many Stars of Fame and Fortune have to decide as the end draws near. We hope she will continue in her Belief of Jehovah God. I have a Video her teaching her daughter. That is so cute if you want to see I can post it? Children are an inheritance from Jehovah, her decisions are needed as the time runs out of this system. To me at least in all the sites I read on, she's a devoted Jehovah's Witness. May we all be determined to never lose our faith or hope! Be positive encourage others, nobody is perfect and Jehovah knows those that love Him. (2 Timothy 2:19.)

I figured she could help me break into the business, so I dropped by. She eyed me briefly, and then pulled the trap door.

And she calls herself a sister!

I wouldn't recommend pursuing celebrity status for this reason - for every successful Witness celebrity there are two or three Michael Jacksons - but I think faithful Witness celebrities serve the cause well, like Coco, like the Russian (now American) punk rocker. The world revels in celebrity and understands little else. The punk rocker, I am told, generated floods of rare positive publicity in the Russian press following his exile in the West.

The world loves celebrity and will even cut Witness celebrities a little slack. Many here will not, and ESPECIALLY Witness detractors will wait for the slightest misstep to hurl it into our faces, but the world in general likes them.

I even think Selena - with her you-know-whats flying about, and her public thanks to Jehovah for letting her beat opponents into mush - does us well. It only sweetens the deal to learn that she was merely raised a Witness and was never baptized - thus she never agreed to carry about the Name.

      Supermodel Coco Rocha enlisted her daughter Ioni Conran to make a very special announcement: she's pregnant with baby No. 2!
      This afternoon, the 29-year-old, who was all gussied up to attend The Bloomberg 50 Celebration at Gotham Hall in NYC on Monday night, posted an Instagram in which she wrote, "Your attention please! @ioniconran has a very important announcement to make!! #babyconran2."
      In the too-cute video, Coco stands in a ball gown as her excited daughter pops out from behind her skirt to tell fans she's going to be a big sister.
      The 2-year-old yells, "Surprise! There's a baby in mommy's tummy!"
      The video is taken in the colorful home of the model and her husband, British muralist James Conran, in Westchester, New York.

      Couldn’t have said it better. Supermodel Coco Rocha does not cave to the pressures of mommyhood. In fact, the mom to 2-year-old daughter Ioni James told Us Weekly that the best parental advice she’s received is to not take any. Watch what she had to say in the video.
      “One amazing person when I was pregnant had said to me, ‘Can I give you some advice?’ And I was like, ugh, not again, someone asking to give me advice. She said, ‘Don’t take anyone’s advice.’ I thought it was so appropriate,” Rocha told Us at the CYBEX MIOS launch in New York City. “Because here we are trying to do the best that we can do. As long as that kid is loved, is safe, is healthy and fed, what more could you want?”
      Rocha, who shares her daughter with husband James Conran says that judgment from other moms was the thing that surprised her most about becoming a parent.
       
      “I was very surprised to hear a lot of critique, a lot of negativity out there,” Rocha says. “That was the most surprising thing. It wasn’t the experience of being a mom. That all to me just felt natural and exciting. There are a lot of cyber-bully moms out there that you unfortunately have to deal with. But as long as that baby’s happy, that’s all that you need to focus on.”
      Coco Rocha   Rocha, 28, and her artist hubby welcomed their first child in March 2015. The beauty excitedly announced the news on Twitter along with an adorable pic of their newborn. She wrote, “James & I are so proud to welcome into the world our healthy and beautiful baby girl, Ioni James Conran! #ioniconran”
      The Canada native is making big strides with her daughter. Find out what milestone her little girl just reached in the video above! Also, Rocha reveals if she and Conran, whom she married in June 2010, have plans for baby No. 2!

      Esta modelo ha sido devota Testigo de Jehová desde la infancia y en una entrevista de 2013 se indica que todavía participa con los testigos de Jehová y predica de casa en casa para compartir la Biblia con los demás  y dice que, debido a su fe no va a posar desnuda, ni en propagandas de cigarrillos, emblemas nacionalistas o iconos religiosos.

    • Somewhere around 1995 a recruiter called me up and wanted me to go to work at the World Trade Center Towers.  He said I could live several states away, and commute in, and that there was a train station in the bottom of the World Trade Center, and I would never even have to go to a "surface street".   A four hour commute did not bother me at all, as I am a compulsive reader, and had a long list of unread books. The money was fabulous, and it was a great job... but it seemed to me that the place was a fire trap. I even considered taking a reserve parachute, and a shot gun with slugs, to shoot out the window, and parachute to the street below, in case of a fire.  I know it takes about 400 feet to get line stretch on the suspension lines of a parachute, and before that, a parachute is merely decorative. So, I would have needed about 600 feet for a successful deployment. I calculated the odds six ways from Sunday, and decided not to take the job. September 11, 2001, I knew I had made the right decision.
