Gisele Bundchen on the Miami beaches with her naked baby Ben


Here are some photos of Mother Superior Gisele Bundchen in Miami with her son Ben. Ben is naked on the beach! What are the rules about that, moms? When I saw the first photos of Ben running in the surf, naked as a jaybird, I thought it was adorable. He’s only 10 months old and already walking! Maybe Ben really is an advanced baby, and Gisele is the smartest, bestest mother EVER!

Now, Ben was not naked the whole beach trip. He arrived fully clothed and then Gisele took off her stuff and stripped Ben down, and then he was a naked baby for the rest of the day. Gisele and Ben played in the ocean, she sunned herself a little and then she sat in the shade with Ben… and the baby was still naked. I’m not being so anal retentive that I’m crying “inappropriate” on general public nakedness on a baby – it’s a baby. Let the baby be naked, who cares? But when you’re on a public beach, and the paparazzi are snapping photos of you and your naked baby…? Is it weird? Gisele also invited a friend to take photos of her naked baby, up close and personal. Once again, that’s totally fine. Ben is just going to be super-embarrassed when Mother Superior pulls out all of these photos when his girlfriend comes over. MOM!


Also – since Ben was diaper-less the whole time, I guess he really is potty-trained? Or maybe he’s just dumping in the ocean. Whatever is going on in these photos, though, they are really adorable. I think Ben is a mama’s boy.

    She has the best body i ever seen.Lean and athletic and healthy..She is like Amazon(greek Godess of nature)

  3. lio says:

    So cute 😉

  4. latvian lady says:

    I now live in Europe (Eastern), and here 99% of children up to age 3 go swimming naked. And little girls up to about 7 regularly wear only swim bottoms. At public beaches we make sure our kids don’t poop, but if they pee, oh well, it’s not as if swim diapers hold in the wetness anyway — they only hold in the “solids”.(Excuse me, but this is the subject ;-)). When in the States, I do dress my children in swimwear, regardless of age. It’s just a matter of what is acceptable where. I’m assuming Giselle’s home of Brazil is much like Europe in this regard.

  5. gigi* says:

    really cute baby!

  6. Marjalane says:

    Do you REALLY think Giselle is ever going to let Ben have a girlfriend?! I doubt if anyone will ever be good enough for him.

  7. melina says:

    I had no idea naked babies in the beach was ever an issue. I live in Greece and all toddlers are naked in the beach. As long as they wear sunscreen and a hat, I see no problem there.

    edit: @2 Angelika: Amazons were female warriors, not godesses. Sorry, I’m a mythology geek 🙂

  8. Anon says:

    I agree with latvian lady! If you look into other European or South American celebrities – you will notice the same thing when majority take their children swimming. Paps or no paps – the mentality is different.
    And considering she kept a hat on Benjamin while in the sun – I am going on a whim of assumption, that she probably kept sunscreen on him.

  9. nnn says:

    Wether in Europe, Africa or South America it’s really no big deal for toddlers to be nakked on the beach.

  10. marge says:

    yup, it’s not a big deal, but if your baby’s photos are GOING to end on the internet, for anyone to see you need to be careful and consider that… so many sicko’s out there, I don’t even post naked pics of my boy on facebook.

  11. Lulu says:

    I’m not european but I let my youngest go naked on the beach! He looooves to be naked!

  12. Heather says:

    I didn’t wear a top swimming til I was about 7.

  13. mel says:

    Although I cant stand Gisele, her body is amazing!

  14. kelbear says:


  15. LeManda says:

    I have no problem with naked children at the beach. However if a bunch of crazy paps were following me you bet I would have put a pair of shorts on him.

  16. aenflex says:

    So cute is right!

  17. Tanja says:

    I guess it’s just me but I don’t think Gisele’s body is that great. She has a very square build and very little real shape. Oh well to each his own.

  18. Leticia says:

    Such a cute baby! I love these photos! But I’m glad there was no frontal nudity shots. But I love his cute little baby bottom!

  19. OhCamille! says:

    That woman has the most beautiful body. I don’t follow her “noise”, never have, so I don’t get why people are annoyed with her all the time.
    Post baby body and her abs are that tight while bending over?…just wow!

  20. Melissa says:

    I don’t care about the nakedness per se, but I do think you’d have to constantly be reapplying sunscreen, and the more body that’s bare, the more places you need to reapply. I allow my 3-yr old to wear skimpy bathing suits after peak sun hours or at indoor pools, but have a rash guard and boy shorts on her when she’s romping around in the midday sun.

    It’s bad enough to get too much sun anywhere, but if it happens on your nether regions – ouch! Just not worth it. Unlike Gisele, however, I believe parents should be given a wide berth in determining what is best for their own children!

  21. Bodhi says:

    While I am jealous of how this G is, I think that women with boobs & hips are more attractive, but thats just me.

    Ben is such a cutie! I am totally going to let my bean play at the beach nekkid!

  22. RHONYC says:

    bridget’s baby is cuter.
    immature i know, but true. 🙂

  23. cantbelievethis says:

    Where are his sunglasses? Aren’t doctors now recommending kids wear them in the bright sunlight (including little kids)?

    I wouldn’t let me kids run naked for pervs to see, but to each their own.

  24. Katie says:

    The sunscreen was my first thought.

  25. It would have been fabulous if Ben would have lost control of his bodily functions all over Gisele’s arm in that top picture.

  26. Delta Juliet says:

    Adorable baby! As far as her and how she looks…yeah, she looks great. Better than me after having 2 babies. But then, looking good is her JOB. I bet she has more time in her day to do crunches than I do.

  27. Mia says:

    Yeah, it’s fine. Where I’m from babies and little kids run around naked on the beach all the time.

    And I’m sure, being the perfect mother that she is and all, Mother Superior smothers little Ben all over from head to toe in some thousand dollar all-natural, lasts-all-day, caviar-enriched designer sun cream for babies.

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist that.

    And I don’t think her body is anything to wow over. Not that it isn’t fabulous, but she can obviously afford the best food, best trainers, best gyms, etc. Not to mention not working a stressful 9 to 5 like many mothers. Ordinary women post-birth then look at her and feel inadequate that their bodies aren’t as great. But she hasn’t achieved anything that any of us could not achieve if we had the time, money and resources.

  28. bb says:

    i don’t see what is the big deal with her body. She hardly has any breasts and almost non-existent butt. I’ll give you she is toned, but that’s it. She has the typical model’s body= skinny, no waist definition and no backside. There are thousands of girls in the street who look better than her tenfold.

  29. sandy says:

    really, not jealous, but i too have seen women on the streets entire body better than this, she is not attractive, looks like a man, i will say after having her baby,, which is a cutie, she is fit, it’s nice, but too thin for most people, just my 2 cents. nice picture though.

  30. WE says:

    You only need to look at Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen to see how amazing Brazilian women look on the beach – just stunning.

  31. dj says:

    Adorable. Nothing better than little naked babies running around looking so happy and free. It looks like he is the king of his domain. Enjoy Ben.

  32. Rosanna says:

    The only ones I know who get insensed at seeing kids that age naked are… well, AMERICANS. The rest of us consider kids innocent and therefore perfectly ok naked.

  33. Praise St. Angie! says:

    aw, naked baby butt…

    he’s a cute little guy, to be sure, but I was thinking what agent bedhead (#25) wrote. I HOPE HE PEED ON HER! And, honestly, if she regularly changes his diapers, he most likely has, as babies have NO control over when that thing goes off! (sorry if that was gross, but anyone who’s ever changed a male baby’s diaper knows what I mean.)

    regarding her figure (or lack there of…), she’s VERY fit, for sure. But, as someone pointed out, she has no curves at all. no boobs, no butt, no real waist definition…just straight up and down.

    which is why designers love her…she’s a perfect “hanger” for them to display their wares.

  34. Weeble says:

    Ben is a cutie pie! As for G., I just don’t find her all the amazingly beautiful. She has a more masculine body, though I do admire how fit she looks. I know we’re all shaped and sized differently, but I am satisfied with my post baby body: big boobs, round hips and sort of poochy stomach. I’m working on toning up, and I’ll get there.

  35. skibunny says:

    I think she looks amazing!

  36. MSMLNP says:

    I’m with Melissa, rash guard and shorts during the day for my 3 and 4 year old boys for sun protection, hats if they will wear them.

    I don’t knock the nudity, to each their own. Definitely think there is a cultural component to this.

    However, what is the point of a naked baby with a hat on? I am seriously curious about that line of thinking. Is it for eye protection only? Because I think my boys lower regions would be a lot more sensitive both with and without sunblock than a face would be.

  37. The Bobster says:

    I’d be happier if she joined him.

  38. Lamp says:

    There are *some* Americans who are uptight about naked babies, but not many. Those who are usually have lots of issues that they feel anxiety about. Naked adults, however, is something most Americans freak about. I don’t know why.

  39. Mandhy says:

    How is a skeleton beautiful? She is way too skinny and is not attractive

  40. la_chica says:

    she looks hot and the baby is adorable.

  41. Mavourneen says:

    hon, in no world was Amazon a person, or the Greek goddess of nature…

  42. juliana says:

    I’m surprised…she doesn’t have much of a waist…I would kill for her legs, though.

  43. april says:

    she has no hips. but is in great shape.

  44. Mistral says:

    I don’t think the naked baby is a problem because he’s being photographed naked. I don’t think baby pictures are sexual or that they can be considered child porn or anything. I do think that he shouldn’t be naked in the sun for that long because he is a baby with delicate skin and needs clothes/a hat as protection, in addition to sunscreen. They say most skin cancers start from childhood sun exposure.

  45. Chicoulina says:

    Wow what an amazing body.Yes she’s squared around the waist but who cares?Look at those legs!!I’d kill for that body!

  46. Jeri says:

    I think it’s just the idea of walking in baby poop.

    Otherwise, of course naked babies are cute. Just have to clean up after them.

  47. angelika says:

    @Melina,Mavorneen you are absolutly right,i meant Arthemide of course…Glad you noticed,that is what too much shopping at ‘Amazon’does to my brains…

  48. lrm says:

    my son went naked here in so cal until he was almost 3….esp. the times where we’d just spontaneously stop at the beach and had no swimsuit for him-oh, he’d wear his diaper, and once that was waterlogged, off it came…and then into a spare towel or sweatshirt in the car, and home for a bath. lol

    funny, a european friend babysat him, and her other euro friend said do people make comments about his nudity? My friend said ‘no, never-the mom does it all the time, too’…apparently, this friend of hers got alot of sneers and remarks for letting her child go nude…
    i always saw people smiling cheerfully-beautiful, joyous child, having a blast-c’mon….

    as for sunscreen, meh. it’s october-honestly, the sun is stronger in the summer and at altitude. we’d often go late afternoon/sunset, too, and he never got burned.

    cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute baby she has, btw.
    and the greek goddess of nature is named Artemis, not amazon. (:

  49. Taya says:


    Well said.

  50. M says:

    Her figure is awful, she’s got no waist!

  51. jzh says:

    bb – thank you. She looks like a fit dude with long hair, to me. And no, it’s not envy – I just have a very different, non-conventional beauty standard.

    the baby is super cute though!

  52. A says:

    I think she’s a fabulous woman and drop dead gorgeous.

  53. Cleo says:

    I had a normal little body once than one day as if overnight, my ribcage WIDENED and flattened so that from the side, I looked very narrow but full frontal view, I looked wide and boxlike and if you look at Gisele’s recent photos, that’s who she is too. She has a wide ribcage that looks slim from the side so that if she didn’t have zero body fat contrasted by great implants, she wouldn’t be as palatable. My waist measurement did not look as nice on a flattened box as it would on a normal body. And yes, that baby should wear swim trunks. Just because Japanese handycams can see through clothing since decades ago, doesn’t mean an Axis mothered baby should promote the propaganda that seeing the genitals of private citizens isn’t such a terrible crime.

  54. 6 says:

    The baby is cute and who cares if it is enjoying the ocean au naturale(sp?)?
    Giselle on the otherhand has no a**! She has nice legs but there isn’t anything sexy about her body. She looks too thin and she has no waist.

  55. Sharon says:

    I’m so glad to know I’m not allow in my thought that G is not that attractive…I wouldn’t look at her and think “supermodel”

  56. stunning says:

    She is beyond stunning.
