The supermodel says she can’t bear to be separated from her son Benjamin. Do you feel the same way?

Aww! Just look at this adorable mommy-baby pair! Supermodel Gisele Bundchen and her 9-month-old baby boy Benjamin Brady were out and about Sept. 14 in New York City. Aren’t they simply the cutest duo you’ve ever seen? We could just eat up little Benjy — he’s that delicious! The-30-year-old clearly feels that way, she barely lets her son out of her sight!

Gisele, who caused an uproar in August when she said that breastfeeding should be mandatory, says that she likes to take her little bundle of joy around with her wherever she goes. “I am so lucky that I can bring him everywhere,” she says of her son with Tom Brady. “I don’t do anything without him. The maximum he has been without me in his life is three hours.”

The model mom also said she has new-found respect for her own mom, now that she’s experienced motherhood herself. “My mother is a hero. I have never appreciated my mother more,” Gisele says. “My mother worked all the time, too. The neighbors all helped. With all the neighbors in my town, it was like a big happy family; that doesn’t really exist anymore. People have forgotten to help each other, and that it’s all about community. You can’t live in a bubble.”
