After hearing she stayed so thin during her pregnancy she didn’t ever wear maternity clothes, supermodel Gisele Bündchen is now coming forward and saying that her natural child birth “didn’t hurt in the slightest,” Brazilian TV channel Fantasticoshe reports.
Gisele gave birth in her bathtub at her Boston home with no pain relief and her mother, husband Tom Brady and a midwife by her side, The Daily Mail reports.
My delivery was in a bath tub, in water,” the 29-year-old beauty said. “I wanted to have a home birth. I wanted to be very aware and present during the birth… I didn’t want to be drugged up. So I did a lot of preparation, I did yoga and meditation, so I managed to have a very tranquil birth at home. It didn’t hurt in the slightest. The whole time my mind was focused in each contraction on the thought ‘my baby is closer to coming out.’”
The Brazilian beauty went on to say, “It wasn’t like ‘this is so painful.’ So I transformed that intense feeling into a hope of seeing him.”
She said that baby Benjamin didn’t cry after being born and rested in her lap for a long time. “It’s wonderful,” she said. “Never in my life I thought I could love like this. You hear people talking about it, but you don’t know until it happens to you. I couldn’t be happier.”
Benjamin is Gisele’s first child. Brady also has a 2-year-old son, Jack, with actress Bridget Moynahan.
