There are a myriad of reasons to be envious of Gisele Bundchen. She’s rich, beautiful and has a fairytale marriage to a football superstar. But there are more reasons to be jealous of this Brazilian babe. Here are 5 reasons to envy Giselle (especially for you moms out there…)
• She didn’t wear maternity clothes during her pregnancy.
“I kept myself in good shape throughout the pregnancy, feeding on a healthy diet, meditating and doing exercises such as yoga and kung-fu,” she told Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo Veja. “I gained a little, but I kept using almost the same clothes, with minor adjustments to close in the belly.” (source)
• Childbirth didn’t hurt at all
Giselle opted to have their son Benjamin at her and Tom Brady’s home, in the bathtub. She went through an eight hour labor, without any pain killers and she claims that childbirth “didn’t hurt in the slightest”. She told the Brazilian TV channel Fantasticoshe that, “The whole time my mind was focused in each contraction on the thought ‘my baby is closer to coming out”…it wasn’t like ‘this is so painful’. So I transformed that intense feeling into a hope of seeing him.”
• She’s back to work modeling less than two months after having her baby.
And of course she looks fabulous, although admittedly a little tired. The shoot for Colcci jeans took place in Boston last weekend with photographer David Sims. (Source)
• She makes bank without lifting (much) of a finger.
Last year she earned $35 million, ranking her as the top paid model, even though she took a chunk of the year off to make a baby in her belly!
• She ain’t just a pretty face!
She has a very profitable side business, selling her old homes! In December she made an $8 million profit on selling her New York City Townhouse.
Yeah, it’s good to be Gisele!
