This was too much to handle for Bundchen and there had been rumors that she wanted a divorce.

"We're in a great place… There's no bigger supporter I have than her," he said.

Bundchen and the kids have the same diet too.

In an interview with Boston.com, the couple’s personal chef, Allen Campbell detailed the types of foods the family eats every day.

“80% of what they eat is vegetables. [I buy] the freshest vegetables. If it’s not organic, I don’t use it. And whole grains: brown rice, quinoa, millet, beans,” Campbell said.

“The other 20% is lean meats: grass-fed organic steak, duck every now and then, and chicken.”

Additionally, a few foods or ingredients the couple doesn’t eat include sugar, white flour, coffee and some vegetables such as tomatoes, mushrooms & peppers. 

5. Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen are stricter when it comes to Halloween candy

While their diet is quite elaborate and they don’t eat sugar, the couple is more cautious with their kids having Halloween candy.

“We don’t really have that kind of sugar in our house. I let them try one [piece], but they really only had one bite and then they didn’t want it anymore," Bundchen told People.

After that, Bundchen chose to give away the kids’ Halloween candy because they didn’t develop a taste for it.

6. Tom Brady likes to get Gisele Bundchen’s attention by behaving like a child.

At times, when Brady wants to get his wife’s attention, he employs the antics of a child.

8. Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen had a strange wedding reception.

Bundchen has written about the couple’s reception in her memoir, Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life.

She wrote, “It was more like a free-for-all, a joyful, relaxed party, just the way I’d always imagined it would be. People ate Mexican food and drank margaritas. They sat or stood in the kitchen, or on the lawn, or by the side of the pool.”
