Gisele Bundchen is one of the greatest supermodels to ever walk the catwalk. She was the star of every Victoria’s Secret show and fans loved her. But, even the gorgeous Gisele once had bad habits that gave her anxiety.
The 39-year old had problems in her early 20s and it was terrible.
Gisele had to stick to a vigorous meditation routine and also eliminated sugary
foods from her menu. She quit smoking and worked out to reduce her anxiety.
Today, Gisele is a mother of two. Benjamin and Vivi make her day better, and she really loves Tom Brady’s son with Bridget Moynahan. He is her bonus kid.
Gisele struggled with her anxiety
At one point in her career, Gisele felt like “she couldn’t breathe.” It felt as if she was “going to die.” She tried to make some changes, but this effort gave her the worst headaches.

not feel anxious. [Before that] I would get into the elevator and I would feel like
I was going to die. So I replaced bad habits with things that were supporting
me and I realized that every day I was feeling better.”
Brady and Gisele have the perfect marriage. The family is enjoying a nice vacation now. Brady will hit the open market this season, and he will have plenty of time to think about it. Gisele will give him a hand in the process. She is always here to support his decisions.
The supermodel once said that she really wants him to retire, but seeing him happy is more important than that. Gisele gave up on her career to take care of her family. She is an environmentalist now, and her book is a bestseller.
