Supermodel Gisele Bündchen was ready for her close-up just six weeks after delivering her son. Just how did the Brazilian bombshell do it?
Gorgeous Gisele Bündchen isn't wasting time getting back into the groove of her career, having already posed for a photo shoot less than two months after giving birth to son Benjamin. But it hasn't been easy. The model reveals to a Brazilian newspaper, "I still haven't had time to go back to doing exercise. In the first few months, everything turns around the baby. But little by little you recover your form," she says. "What helps me is the fact that I didn't put much weight on, and that I had a natural birth and am breastfeeding."
Bündchen says it was what she did during her pregnancy that helped her get back to her fighting weight. "I kept myself in good shape during the whole pregnancy, eating healthily, meditating, and doing exercises," she says. "I put on a little weight, but kept using almost the same clothes, with small adjustments on the stomach." Lucky gal!
As for caring for the little one, she's not relying on nannies for assistance -- her mother Vania has been right there by her side. "She gave me great support," she says. "I couldn't ask God for more support than this." It hasn't all been easy, she says, but it's been worth it. "I haven't slept much. It is really tiring, but it's such a special moment that I am enjoying it to the maximum. I have dedicated my days completely to him."
The 29-year-old mom, who is married to NFL star Tom Brady, says their new addition has changed her life. "To be a mother is a magical experience," she gushes. "The whole body is transformed by this," she says. "It really is the miracle of life. I am really happy!"
