Tom Brady's list of accomplishments are getting longer by the game. He has set many records within 2014/2015 including being named the Super Bowl's MVP for the 3rd, tying Joe Montana's Super Bowl MVP record. Some may believe his greatness comes from his dedication to long work hours and training – but we have a feeling his family life is on point too. His wife, Gisele Bundchen, has been a huge contributor to his success. Check out these 8 Things you probably didn't know about Tom Brady's Wife!
#1 – She's a twin.
Gisele and Patricia Bundchen were born five minutes apart, with Giselle being the oldest. They are not only twin sisters, but best friends. They are often seen working out together and spending lots of time together. Patricia is often at Giselle's shows to show support. Not only does she have a twin, but she has four other sisters! All of them are close and chat daily.
#2 – She grew chickens, fruits & vegetables in her own backyard in LA.
We all know models have to eat healthy to look their best on the catwalk but how many of them grow their own food? Giselle is known to be on a healthy-eating mission for her and her family Tom Brady and their three children Benjamin ,4, Vivian, 17 months, and Brady's six-year-old son Jack. Her Instagram feed often shows meals that were made exclusively from their extensive garden.
#3 – She is the Goodwill Ambassador for the “United Nations Environment Programme.”
Gisele is a big advocate for the environment and shows her support by donating time and money to the cause. Their home in LA was irrigated by a gray-water system and electricity was supplied by solar panels.
#4 – She is a big advocate for breastfeeding.
In 2010 after having her son Benjamin, she told Harper's Bazaar UK “Some people here in the US think they don't need to breastfeed, and I think ‘Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?'” She also posted a picture on Instagram where she was getting her hair and makeup done while breastfeeding.
#5 – Her LA home was purchased by Dr. Dre in 2015 for $40 million.
The massive four acre estate was listed at $50 million and sold within weeks. The home boasts a grand pool, golf course, gym, sauna, five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a library/study and seven fireplaces.
#6 – She has her own personal brand of footwear: IPanema.
Her brand has been seen on celebrities and their children numerous times. Her footwear is known to be comfortable and practical, yet stylish.
#7 – She was discovered at age 14 while shopping in Brazil.
She had never considered modeling before then and she quickly rose to be being the highest paid model by age 26.
#8 – Volleyball Fanatic
She wanted to be a volleyball player and considered trying out for the Brazilian national team before her modeling career took off. She trained extensively and although she no longer plays like she used to, she is still very much involved in sports and fitness. It has always been a big part of her life.
Giselle may be a top model, but she breaks the stereotype that models don't eat, party all night and live unhealthy lifestyles. Giselle works hard, is determined and loves being a wife and mother. She dedicates a lot of her time to her children and a healthy, holistic lifestyle. Tom and Gisele are a power couple and we say more power to them!
