Yesterday, a slew of aspiring Angels descended upon New York City to attend the casting call for the 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Among the heavenly hopefuls were Hailey Baldwin—whose besties Kendall Jenner, and Gigi and Bella Hadid are already alumna of the annual extravaganza—Taylor Hill's younger sister Mackinley Hill, and one unfamiliar blonde in a white bandeau and high-waisted pants that drew her fair share of attention.

As it turns out, like Baldwin and Hill, the newcomer also comes with a famous last name: Canseco, as in former baseball star and The Surreal Life cast member Jose Canseco. As it turns out, the athlete is father to a stunning 21-year-old aspiring model named—wait for it—Josie.

According to her Instagram page, Canseco, whose mother is former Playboy model Jessica Canseco, is signed to Next Models, which also represents fellow scions Immy Waterhouse, Langley Fox Hemingway, Lily McMenamy, and Anna Cleveland, and has been hitting the gym hard recently in preparation for her big Victoria's Secret audition.

Just a few hours after pictures of her heading into the casting hit the Internet, however, the model took to her Twitter to let her followers know that she would not be getting a pair of wings this time around. "didn't get the show this year 🙁 NEXT TIME. I WONT LET YOU GUYS DOWN," she wrote to her 66,000 plus followers. "honestly I feel so incredibly defeated but it's OK. good things come to those who wait, im only gonna work harder," she continued. "I've been blessed to live a very privileged life, and this is so humbling, I don't think I would have wanted it differently to be honest." She finished the message on a positive note: "don't get me wrong, I worked INCREDIBLY hard for this and to be where I am, but everything happens for a reason. only motivating me more."

She may not have booked the show, but she's certainly well on the way to making a name for herself in the modeling world—and on the Internet. On Instagram, Canseco frequently posts modeling shots, often wearing a bikini on the beach, to her 296,000 followers. Back in June, she walked in the Moschino resort runway show, and has appeared in campaigns for Victoria's Secret PINK, indicating that her future plans for the fashion show may not be far off.

Of course, no model scion is anything without a equally famous squad. Amongst those who have made an appearance on Canseco's Instagram are Sailor Brinkley Cook, former Scott Disick-fling Christine Burke, and America's Next Top Model alum CoryAnne Roberts. Earlier this year, she also made headlines for reportedly dating Tyga, fresh off his Kylie Jenner breakup, after the two were spotted chatting in Miami. However, the model has been in a relationship with rapper Mike Stud for over a year—so should those Victoria's Secret dreams come true, there won't be any bad blood between her and Kendall Jenner. Phew.
