Tom Brady‘s wife, Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen, gave birth to a baby daughter, Vivian Lake, on Wednesday. The child is the second for the couple, joining son Benjamin, who turns three tomorrow, and the third for Brady, who has a five-year-old son, John, from a previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.
The impending birth had been a source of unease for Patriots fans who feared their quarterback could miss a start if Bündchen went into labor on a gameday. Fortunately for us, Vivian came into the world on a Wednesday, and her father has already returned to practice ahead of Monday night’s much-anticipated showdown with the Texans. Most importantly for the family, she “is healthy and full of life”, as the 32-year-old Bündchen announced this morning on her Facebook page.
