How does an NFL star propose to a supermodel? With a backup story and a whole lot of décor, apparently! Gisele Bündchen just participated in Vogue's "73 Questions" series, and the model shared the adorable story of how Tom Brady proposed. She also gave some additional insight into their relationship after almost a decade of marriage.
When asked what the most romantic thing Brady had ever done for her was, Bündchen revealed how he popped the question. "When he proposed to me he made up this whole story," she shared—a story that involved her apartment flooding! "I ran over there to try to fix the situation," she explained. "When I got there, the whole apartment had candles and rose petals everywhere, and then he went down on his knees to propose."
The sweet moment took a hilarious turn, however. "I'm like, "Get up!" she recalled, "because he just had surgery and had three staph infections." Ever the gentleman, though, Brady insisted on doing things right, claiming he had to take a knee. "I'm like, "No, no, no, get up, please!" Bündchen laughed.
This wasn't Brady's only mention in the interview. When asked to describe her husband with an emoji, she said, "The one with the sunglasses, like cool and collected, you know?" She also shared that she taught the athlete "to recycle," while he taught her "how to say 'no.'" As for the secret to the couple's success? She pointed to "open and loving communication."
