Gisele Bundchen Wears Shorts on April 2010 Vogue Cover
Posted on March 15, 2010
Gisele Bundchen covers the April issue of Vogue. Gisele is already back in model shape just three months after giving birth to her son, Benjamin Rein. The photoshoot was shot by photographer Patrick Demarchelier in a remote part of Costa Rica, where Gisele shares a getaway with her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. In the interview, Gisele talked with Vogue about her pregnancy, her work and her new organic skincare line. Vogue calls Gisele the "Earth Mother."
On Naming Her Son: "I wanted him to be called River because I wanted something always flowing, immortal. 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."
On Weight Gained During Pregnancy: "I did kung fu up until two weeks before Benjamin was born, and yoga three days a week. 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."
On Sejaa: "When I was a teenager, I had pimples-oh, God, every time someone looked at my face I thought they were looking at my pimples. I put mud on my face to dry them out, and it worked. "I can do all this because I'm financing it on my own terms, and if I want to give away 5 percent of everything I make, no one can tell me not to."
