It’s not easy being Gisele Bundchen. I mean, you have to live with Tom Brady 24/7 and make sure he isn’t trying to sneak any strawberries onto his desert of Fiji Water and sugar-free Tic-Tacs. But Gisele had another thing to worry about her: her post-babies boob job. Gisele has a new memoir Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life so pieces of it are being released. In addition to talking about her battle with panic attacks, she talks about time she got a boob job. Plastic surgery?! On a supermodel?! Color. Me. SHOCKED!
I didn’t know that Gisele was initially known as “the boobs from Brazil” after she made it big by strutting topless in a 1997 Alexander McQueen fashion show. Oh, the 90s. If you even tried to call someone “the boobs from Brazil” these days, your ass would be tarred and feathered. Fast forward to today, and Gisele says it hasn’t always been frivolity and fashion: babies ruined her money maker! Tom and Gisele had their children Benjamin and Vivian, and each kid was breastfed for more than 18 months. That takes a toll on the teet, as Gi said she noticed her boobs got smaller – and uneven – after nursing her kids.
“I was always praised for my body, and I felt like people had expectations from me that I couldn’t deliver. I felt very vulnerable, because I can work out, I can eat healthy, but I can’t change the fact that both of my kids enjoyed the left boob more than the right. All I wanted was for them to be even and for people to stop commenting on it.”
Deflated left boob! Oh no! In case you need proof of preferred boob, I present Exhibit A:
People Magazine seems to be really into this SHOCKING and UNBELIEVABLE candid moment from the “famously private” Gisele, but this isn’t THAT out of left field for us drooling crows who hit refresh on DListed every three minutes. If y’all recall, Gisele was said to be hiding under that illegal burka in Paris when she got the boob job done, and most people knew it was her since she didn’t disguise her driver and wore open-toed shoes with the outfit. According to her book, she immediately regretted going under the knife:
“When I woke up, I was like, ‘What have I done?’ I felt like I was living in a body I didn’t recognize. For the first year I wore [baggy] clothes because I felt uncomfortable.”
One thing that helps is she said Tom was a supportive husband and said he loved her no matter what, which is what he should have done since she makes the real cash in that household. Plus, last time I checked, her deflated boobs didn’t send her to NFL court like his deflated footballs!
