Gisele Bündchen Opens Up About Challenging Years Amid Divorce, Pandemic, and Sobriety

Gisele Bündchen’s Tough Years

Gisele Bündchen, the 43-year-old CAA Fashion model, recently opened up about the challenging experiences her family has faced over the past few years.

These difficulties include her divorce from seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady, relocating their children to Florida, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and caring for her ailing parents. Gisele expressed that these years have tested her in various aspects of life.

Navigating Life’s Twists and Turns

In an interview with People, Gisele acknowledged the multiple challenges her family has confronted, describing them as a series of twists and turns.

She shared that she feels that life sometimes presents unexpected and demanding situations, and individuals can only do their best to navigate and adapt to their surroundings.

Sobriety and Its Positive Impact

One significant change in Gisele Bündchen’s life was her decision to become sober, which she made “over two years” ago. This change has brought her clarity, improved sharpness, and better sleep.

She reflected on how her body responded differently to alcohol as she reached her 40s and noted that it was no longer a healthy choice given her active lifestyle and demands on her body.

Prior Habits and Transformation

In her early twenties, Gisele admitted to starting her day with cigarettes and a mocha Frappuccino with whipped cream and ending it with nightly wine consumption, all as a way to cope with severe panic attacks and depression.

However, she has since transformed her habits and now prioritizes meditation and daily exercise to maintain her overall wellness.

Family, Growth, and Principles

Gisele discussed her children, particularly 13-year-old son Benjamin Rain Brady and 10-year-old daughter Vivian Lake Brady, who were homeschooled until recently enrolling in a Miami-area school. She expressed pride in seeing them flourish as individuals while upholding strong principles and values.

Benjamin’s Sports and Interests

Gisele shared that Benjamin, for the first time, joined a football team and proudly wears jersey No. 12, just like his famous father.

He has also shown an interest in art and playing the piano, with a piano conveniently placed in their living room.

Vivian’s Equestrian Passion

Vivian, on the other hand, has joined the school swim team and developed a deep passion for horseback riding.

She is particularly fond of riding her horse, Item, on their expansive estate in South Florida, where they have a state-of-the-art equestrian rink with 10 large horse stalls.

John Edward Thomas Moynahan

Tom Brady’s eldest child, John Edward Thomas Moynahan, primarily resides in New York with his mother, actress Bridget Moynahan, according to the article.

Upcoming Cookbook Release

Gisele Bündchen is set to release her cookbook titled “Nourish: Simple Recipes to Empower Your Body and Feed Your Soul” on March 26, featuring 100 delicious and approachable recipes aimed at promoting wellness and nourishment.
