Tom’s proposal to Gisele began with a lie
Tom and Gisele began their romance in 2006 after friends set them up on a blind date. “When he proposed to me, he made up this whole story [about] how my apartment was flooding,” Gisele said of their engagement to W magazine. “And I ran over there to try to fix the situation. When I got there, the whole apartment had candles and rose petals, and then he went down on his knees to propose.”
“And I’m like, ‘Get up, ’cause he just had surgery and had three staph infections. I’m like ‘What are you doing?!’ He’s like, ‘I gotta go on my knees.’ I’m like, ‘No, no, no! Get up, please.’ So, and here we are.” The pair would go on to marry in 2009 in Los Angeles.
Gisele is a proud mother and stepmother
Gisele and Tom welcomed their first child in 2009, son Benjamin. Three years later, daughter Vivian would join the family. The model told W magazine that the best part about being a mom is “the love you receive and the love you feel.” The hardest part, she joked, is “sleep deprivation.”
She is also proud of her stepson Jack. And quite protective! When Tom said he wanted Jack to follow in his footsteps as a quarterback for the University of Michigan, Tom said Gisele stepped in and argued, “‘Just let him be what he wants to be for god’s sakes!'”
Gisele is the secret to their success, according to Tom
Gisele and Tom have been happily married for more than a decade. When asked how they have managed to be so successful, Tom said it was all due to his gorgeous wife. “I give her a lot of credit for that you know she’s, she’s the one that you know supports the family, she’s the one that at the end of the day makes a lot of sacrifices,” he told Good Morning America. “She brings out the best version of me.”
