Gisele reveals she nearly left husband Tom Brady

Gisele Bundchen

It’s been quite the week for Gisele Bundchen.

Gisele Bundchen has gone on record admitting “there have been a few tough times” during the course of her marriage to NFL star Tom Brady. Speaking to CBS This Morning, she revealed she even considered running away when she found out the New England Patriots quarterback’s ex, Bridget Moynahan, was pregnant with his child. At the time, Gisele and Tom had been dating for less than three months.

“It was a challenging thing because here I am, you know, thinking, I’m dating this guy, we met, and we started dating and everything is great and then this happens,” she recalled. “So, then I felt like I didn’t know what to do. It was kind of one of those moments of like, ‘Do I just run away?'”

In August of 2007, Bridget gave birth to the pair’s son, John. “I think, now, eight years later, I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter bonus child,” mother-of-two Gisele admits.

The Brazilian supermodel, who is the highest-paid model in history, this week released her coffee table book which is filled with career highs and memorable fashion shoots. Despite the US$700 (NZ$ 1,000) price tag, the initial 1000-print run of Gisele sold out completely before it had even been officially released, according to a statement from publisher Taschen.

Gisele took to her Instagram account to thank her fans for supporting the tome and her 20-year career. “Gratitude for all the love I received from everyone at the launch of my book today,” she wrote. “Thank you for being there for me at this very special moment.”

All the proceeds from the book will be donated to charity, reports US Weekly.
