Gisele Dishes About Her Pregnancy: “I Did Kung Fu…And Gained Only 30 Pounds!”

Dying to know how a supermodel like Gisele got her pre-baby body back so quickly? Here’s her secret!

Gisele Bundchen is one hot mama! Just six weeks after giving birth to son Benjamin Rein with hubby Tom Brady, the supermodel posed for the cover of Vogue‘s April issue, and explained how she got her fabulous pre-body figure back so fast!

“I did kung fu up until two weeks before Benjamin was born, and yoga three days a week,” Gisele, 29, dished to the fashion magazine. “I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals. I was mindful about what I ate, and I gained only 30 pounds.”

Yikes! If Gisele can work out at least three days a week when she’s in her third trimester, we have no excuse for not dragging our butts to the gym at all!

The Brazilian supermodel also reveals in the issue that she and her NFL star hubby, 32, disagreed at first over their son’s name — but, like any loved-up couple — compromised.

“I wanted him to be called River because I wanted something always flowing, immortal,” Gisele said. “My husband said, ‘There’s no way we’re going to call him River.’ But my father’s name is Reinoldo, so it’s a homage to him. And it’s like water.”

We’re with Tom on that one! If they had named Ben River, he’d probably end up with a sister named Stream. You have to lay down the line somewhere, right?

How do you think Gisele looks for her first cover shoot after baby?
