The baby bomb­shell that rocked Gisele Bünd­chen and her hus­band


OK! (Australia) - - Contents -

For 15 con­sec­u­tive years, Gisele Bünd­chen topped Forbes' an­nual list of the world's high­est-paid mod­els – so fans could be for­given for think­ing she had it all!

But be­hind her mil­lion-dol­lar smile, the 38-year-old Brazil­ian star was bot­tling up some heart­break­ing thoughts about the very con­tro­ver­sial start to her re­la­tion­ship with now-hus­band, Amer­i­can quar­ter­back Tom Brady, 41, back in 2006.

‘Two months into our re­la­tion­ship, Tom told me that his ex-girl­friend [Brid­get Moy­na­han] was preg­nant. The very next day the news was ev­ery­where, and I felt my world had been turned up­side down,' Gisele re­veals in her au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, Lessons. ‘It wasn't an ideal sit­u­a­tion for any­one – there's no man­ual to pre­pare you for that,' she ad­mits.

But while it may have been dif­fi­cult in the be­gin­ning, Gisele says Tom's el­dest child John Ed­ward Thomas, 11, who they call Jack, is a bless­ing. ‘I couldn't imag­ine my life with­out him. I call him my bonus child,' she ex­plains. ‘In fact, I credit Jack with ac­cel­er­at­ing Tom's and my grow­ing up in so many ways,' she adds. ‘The two of us agreed that Jack should have sib­lings closer to his own age, and not 10 years younger,' she says. ‘A cou­ple of years later, we were mar­ried, I be­came preg­nant, and soon we were busy grow­ing our fam­ily.'

Brid­get has also warmed to the mod­ern fam­ily dy­namic. ‘My son has two lov­ing par­ents and an ex­tended fam­ily, whether it's cousins or step­moth­ers or boyfriends. My son is sur­rounded by love,' the 47-year-old Blue Bloods ac­tress ex­plains.
