Former Victoria’s Secret supermodel Gisele Bundchen talks about her recent pregnancy and the experience of giving birth to baby Benjamin Rein Brady in next month’s issue of Vogue magazine. Us Weekly says
Benjamin — her son with husband Tom Brady — was born at their Boston penthouse last December, in warm water in a deep bathtub that overlooks the Charles River.
“I wanted to experience the transformation,” Bundchen, 29, explains. Through the birth, she says she meditated.
“It was the most amazing experience of my life, feeling him come through my body,” she says. “I never felt so empowered!”
During her pregnancy, she says she “gained only 30 pounds” and… exercised regularly right up until she gave birth.
Bundchen also says she was “mindful” about what she ate.
Says the model: “I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals.”
Well, that’s just beautiful, isn’t it? Perfect pregnancy, perfect delivery, perfect post-baby bod. It must be nice being a supermodel. In real life, when you have babies, you gain 85 pounds, crap yourself on the delivery table, and get enough stretch marks around your midsection to double as a relief map of the Mississippi River Delta Basin. But nobody at Vogue ever wants to write an article about that.
