Gisele Bundchen - 'Vanity Fair' May 2009
AND GOD MADE GISELE
On being compatible with Tom Brady: “He’s very close to his family. He’s Catholic. His parents have been married 40 years. He’s got a pure heart. That’s all that matters – he’s got the purest heart. I feel grateful because I have a lot of love in my life. I found the person I’m sharing my life with. I have a good man.”
On Tom’s love child with Bridget Moynahan (John Edward Thomas Moynahan): “It was definitely a surprise for both of us. In the beginning you’re living this romantic fantasy; you’re thinking, This can’t be true, it’s so good! And then, Whoops – wake-up call! , [I]t was a very challenging situation. Obviously, in the beginning, it’s not the ideal thing.”
On doubts arising from her and Tom’s relationship: “You question at times – ‘Should I stay here? Maybe you should work this out.’ But when people break up, it’s for a reason. [Dealing with baby John] was a blessing, because otherwise I don’t think I would have known what he was made of, and he wouldn’t have known what I was made of. [I love Tom's integrity and] the way he was a good person through all the times. I was like, You have the heart in a good place! It made me feel more in love with him; it made me realize who he was.”
