First photo of Gisele Bundchen & Tom Brady’s baby Benjamin


Behold, baby Benjamin Brady, son of Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady! He looks… just like a sleepy baby. Hmm…

Back in December, Gisele Bundchen gave birth to a baby boy. It took a little while (like a week), but eventually Gisele and husband Tom Brady came up with a name for their little one: Benjamin “Button” Brady. No, not really with the “Button” but still. Ben Brady is a cute name. Anyway, since then, no one has gotten a photo of little Ben. Gisele didn’t go the People Magazine route, she and Tom didn’t “let” a paparazzi catch them in a “candid” moment with the baby. Until now! What’s shocking, though, is that it wasn’t an American publication that scooped up this candid photo – it was a Brazilian magazine called Quem.

The Brazilian magazine Quem got its hands on the first photos of Gisele Bunchden and her son Benjamin, taken during a trip out in Boston at the end of January. So far this is the only image out of little Benjamin, who’s looking so cute at just 2 months old!

Gisele, meanwhile, is already getting back to modeling with her first shoot for the Brazilian brand Colcci. She might be giving up a lot of work to stay home with her son, though Gisele said she’s feeling ready to pose again after a minute of post-birth doubt.

Well, good for them. My guess is that Gisele worked it out with the Quem editors that they would get the first photo, rather than an American publication. She’s representin’ for Brazil, bless her heart. As I’ve mentioned before, I warmed to Gisele considerably when she was pregnant – she came across as very sweet and cool. Of course, now that the baby has been born, Gisele won’t shut up about how easy the birth was, how the midwife thinks she was so brave, how she did it all without drugs and in a bathtub, and how easy it all was for her to drop her baby weight – even though she stayed so slim she didn‘t even wear maternity clothes. Yes, the old Gisele is back.

    Benjamin is a nice, classic name. Thankfully this couple didn’t inflict a bad one on their child.

    I’m not really a fan of the whole alliteration thing, but hey, Benjamin is better than AudioScience. or Pilot Inspektor. or Apple. or Honor.

    I could go on and on…

  2. mel says:

    I like the fact that Bridget named her son “John”. Simple and classic.

  3. RobN says:

    She’s a lot more likeable when she doesn’t speak. And yes, Benjamin is a nice name but I’m not loving the way it goes with the last name. Benjamin Brady is a mouthful and I seriously hope the kid doesn’t have a lisp of any kind or it’ll be a nightmare.

  4. NeNe says:

    He’s a baby, and his eyes are closed. So, it’s kind of hard to tell how adorable he might be.

  5. Rosalee says:

    He’s a sweetie pie and I love the name, classic.

  6. Gabby says:

    Rightt….. Cause its impossible for a new mom to gush about her newborn…

    And God forbids if she tried to make it different then the normal hospital+drug way, and it wasnt as painful as it is for others…

    And of course, lets not forget that a Gisele post HAS ro HAVE a lil’ bit of Bridget’s name trhown in just for kicks right?? Cause no matter how much time has gone by, how things may have turned out, or how the simply truth is that IF Tom and Bridget wanted to work things out between them it would have happened no matter what Gisele said or did, since they had broken up before she found out she was preggers…

    This girl will never have a minute of peace without YOU people judging her for falling in love with an UNMARRIED man, and SINGLE as he was when they first got together. The fact that his ex was pregnant and that they found out AFTER been together already, has nothing to do with her integraty or dignity, so just shut up about it!

    And the baby looks like a baby, thats it!
    And if she thinks her country should get the first picture of him, its not just because we expected it would be her in america, that she should have sold out to the tabloids that called her so many nasty names before.

  7. NicoleB says:

    he looks like every other baby on the planet.

  8. niamh (neev) says:

    Ben has her nose, non?

    Since you mentioned Gisele not wearing mat clothes, I wanted to mention that I’m 8 months along and not wearing mat clothes either. It’s not that I stayed slim, they’re just hideous and it’s easier to buy a few sizes up instead of those ridiculous elastic band jeans that go up to your bra.

  9. Larissa says:

    @Kaiser: FYI Gisele said what she said about natural birth and her positive experience to encourage/incentivate natural birth in Brazil, after all that interview was directed to a brazilian audience!
    C-Sections are MAJORLY perfomed in Brazil and if you have a private health insurance they are basically approved and schedule several months prior to the estimated due date, regardless of the women´s health condition.
    So even if she was stretching a little the truth it was only for a good cause.
    You people are so judgmental sometimes I feel I am in the purgatory here! lol

  10. CeeCee12 says:

    I have never understood how she is considered beautiful. She has the body and stature of a top model but her face…meh.

    She does seem a lot cooler than most models though. Definitely waaaaay better than someone like Kate Moss. At least she looks healthy and isn’t stumbling out of nightclubs covered in blow every night.

  11. hmm says:

    Gabby, I agree 100%.

  12. RobN says:

    @Gabby, if you’ll take a closer look at the quotes, you’ll see that she isn’t gushing about her newborn at all, she’s gushing about herself. Again. That’s what bugs people about her.

    I don’t care who Brady ended up with; to my mind he’s not really much of a catch. But Gisele’s total self-involvement does seem to exceed even acceptable supermodel levels.

  13. Rosanna says:

    I much prefer John, he’s way prettier

  14. stinabelle says:

    Lol at Gabby and “incentivate.” Do you mean incentivize?

    That baby is cute. Then again, I think all babies are cute.

  15. Ana says:

    I had to have maternity clothes. My belly got huge! I couldn’t buy bigger sizes because they were baggier everywhere else. I like the way maternity clothes are tailored. I didn’t want to look frumpy. I got away with a few regular empire waisted tops, but soon they were too short for my belly. They make pants that have the stretchy band that goes under the belly instead of one that covers the entire thing, which is what I used.
    They also make belly bands that help your pants stay up when you wear them unbuttoned. I didn’t use any of those though. Gisele’s belly didn’t get much bigger, like Nicole Kidman’s. She’s very tall, so her belly didn’t pop out as much.

    And of course, she’s a superwoman.

    That is a huge jacket for such a little baby.

  16. Cat says:

    Ok, I’ve never given birth but. . .is it possible to have a pain-free childbirth?? Personally if I wasn’t wanting to scream in pain, I’d think something was seriously wrong with the baby!
    And how was she both ‘in the moment’ AND doing hypnobirth? Wouldn’t that mean she was hypnotized and sort of not herself?
    Sorry if that sounds ignorant but I’m very confused!! Has anyone tried natural childbirth and knows what she’s talking about?

  17. I am 5 foot 1 and 90lbs and had a 10lb 2oz baby boy and an 11lb 7oz baby boy so there was no natural child birth for me, but I have heard plenty of women say they had a pain free water birth. Everyone is different so if she had an easy time good for her. I think the baby is cute like most other babies and the name is alright I just don’t like the B B.

  18. nana says:

    gosh… hes sooo cute as a button. benjamin button.

  19. Misty_* says:

    I know this is not a much conclusive picture, but this baby looks so average to be the son of people considered (by others, not me) pretty.
    I bet she didn’t sell the pictures of the baby because no one wanted to pay the money she asked for (the very reason why Victoria’s Secret *dumped* her). If you take a quick look at her career, especially her recent works (most from random brands like Stefanel, True Religion, London Fog, Rampage and this sort of stuff), you’ll see that she accepts to sell ANYTHING if well paid.
    A brazilian mag probably got the picture because, I suppose brazilians are much more curious about her baby than americans would ever be. I mean, she’s kind of a national treasure there, while in the US, for most people, she’s just some chick who modelled underwear and dated Leonardo DiCaprio. Not really special.

  20. Larissa says:

    oh gosh, he is just a baby !!!!!
    not all babies are diaper commercial material that doesn´t make them any less cute. Can´t believe the comments here are coming from supposedly grown ups, it makes me sick, literally!

  21. Best of British says:

    I’m 35 weeks pregnant with twins and wear a mixture of normal clothes and maternity wear. Gisele looked like she was smaller than me in the belly so its no wonder she had little trouble fitting into normal things. A lot of the tops out there at the moment are quite loose and baggy round the waist and fitted round the chest, so they’re ideal for pregnant ladies too!

  22. Harriet says:

    Kudos Gabby.

  23. Harriet says:

    Rosanna you’re petty. FYI Misty she hardly needs any money. And your opinion about her is invalid. She is still the world’s most succesful and rich supermodel of all times. Nothing you say will change that.

  24. Liona says:

    bleh, his first son is much cuter.
    Team bridgette, not team long legged beek nosed *&#;^%

  25. Harriet says:

    RobN you are wrong. She WAS gushing about her baby. If you read or watched the whole interview you would know that. What is posted here at celebitchy is not the whole interview but some segments.

  26. Misty_* says:

    Gisele (oops, sorry, Harriet), go look after your Benjamin Button, woman, instead of reading gossip sites! Oh, I forgot that “celebrities” don’t raise kids, they pay people to do it! I understand you, who wants to look at a dirty diaper with Celebitchy and D-Listed out there?


    Now, seriously, “Harriet”, Gisele may not care about what *I* think of her, but she probably doesn’t give a sh*t about what you think either. She probably thinks people like you are dust under her designer shoes, so don’t waste so much energy defending her. Your opinion is also “invalid”, get it? Which means that, we’re actually on the same boat. I just happen to have a more intelligent opinion.

    To finish, I see that money is really unimportant for Gisele. She’s posing for stuff like London Fog, Rampage and True Religion because these brands are highly respected in the fashion world. The woman is selling cable TV in Brazil. B*tch, please.

    *rolling eyes*

  27. lambchops says:

    All births are different. She was lucky that things went smoothly and she coped with the pain very well. Your body gives birth the way it wants to, and she’s just very very lucky. I don’t think she was saying anything controversial, but not all women can have such a smooth delivery. She seems to be a lucky lady and a fun, likable person. I’m glad for her.

  28. Iggles says:

    Team Bridget, hehe.

    I dislike Tom and Giselle. Wish them the best with their son, but I’ll always like Bridget more. I think she handled a messed situation with class. Just like Mary Louise Parker.

    Anyway, I do give Tom and Giselle credit for picking a normal name. Still think they’re an unlikeable self absorbed duo though..

  29. Karen says:

    I’m so happy for her. She is incredibly smart and such a good person. She donated a million and a half to Haiti. Always have liked her thought she was so different then the other models, because she was actually smart and savvy. Best of luck to her and her lovely family.

  30. TG says:

    I don’t think Bridget handled anything with class. Tricking your man when you know the relationship is all but over and getting knocked up is not classy.

  31. Madelyn Rose says:

    I agree totally with you, Gabby. And you too, TG. I don’t see how trying to trap a boyfriend into staying with you by discovering you were preganant after he’s gone is in any way classy. And that is definitely NOT what happened with Mary Louise Parker. She was in her 3rd trimester when Billy dumped her for Claire Danes.

    I don’t see whay anyone should be “Team Bridget” or “Team Giselle” since the pregnancy was discovered after the break-up and Tom had already met someone else. That, and they weren’t married!!

  32. Praise St. Angie! says:


    how did Bridget Moynihan “trap” anyone?

    it takes two to make a baby, and if he didn’t want to have a baby with Moynihan, he could have wrapped it up.

    I think they were on the outs but still having sex, and had probably already ended it when she discovered she was pregnant.

    should she have terminated her pregnancy simply because she and the father were no longer an item? it’s not like she was out in the media crying about someone “stealing her man”, or begging Brady to come back to her.

    the relationship ended, and she decided to keep her baby. no trapping, no man-stealing…just a couple of consenting adults who decided to be…well, ADULT about things.

  33. TG says:

    Well since we don’t know what kind of birth control they were using we can’t really know, but if she was on the pill she could have easily went off it months before she got pregnant so maybe she had been trying even before they officially broke up? I just don’t believe for a second that this was an accident and yes it takes 2 to make a baby but I feel that if you are in a relationship with someone and you both talk about whether or not you want kids and birth control and if the method is the pill than you can’t blame the guy if the girl gets pregnant. He should have been able to trust her. If my long time boyfriend or husband would only have sex with me using a condom because he couldn’t trust me I would brake up with him so I think it is the woman’s responsibility.

  34. Praise St. Angie! says:

    again, whoa.

    birth control is the responsibility of BOTH people having sex. I know couples that use both the pill AND a condom. And those together STILL are not 100% effective. the ONLY way to prevent pregnancy is to not have sex.

    I’ll say it again. if he didn’t want a baby, REGARDLESS OF WHAT SHE MAY HAVE TOLD HIM ABOUT BIRTH CONTROL, he should have taken whatever measures he could have…that is, wrapped it up. And if she refused, he should have kept it in his pants. the excuse of “she told me she was on the pill” is a cop-out – a way for a man to avoid taking responsibility for his actions. HE is responsible for this baby just as much as she is.

    why don’t you believe it was an accident? “accidents” like this happen all the time.

  35. TG says:

    I agree peventing pregnancy is the responsibility of both but I am married and on the pill I think it would be weird if my husband also used a condom. That is just plain bizarre. And I would never decide on my own that it is time to have a child. I think their relationship was on the rocks before they officially split as is the way many people end their relationship and they still have sex. We or at least I, don’t know what kind of birth control they were using if it was just a condom or the rythm method or pulling out, than yes it could have been an accident but if she was on the pill than I don’t believe it. I know they say it isn’t 100% effective, but I just don’t buy that she didn’t plan it. He did step up and take responsibility. Only Bridgete and maybe Tom know what happened and like many women I know they never blame themselves when they are in the wrong.

  36. snapdragon says:

    maybe now gisele will stop gushing about bridget’s son as if he were hers. i always thought that was a bit creepy.

  37. flyhigh says:

    OMG she looks gorgeous…

  38. insomniac says:

    Wow, TG. Wow. You said,

    “…getting knocked up is not classy.” and, “…you can’t blame the guy if the girl gets pregnant…I think it is the woman’s responsibility.”


    Please, as a woman to another woman, find self-respect somewhere.

    And listen to Praise St. Angie’s responses to your nonsensical posts.

  39. captain says:

    Adorable baby! Congrats to Tom and Gisele. All the best.

  40. shayla says:

    as a matter of fact, according to people close the family, she admitted to tom that her pregnancy was NOT an accident. and yes, she did beg him to go back to her and followed him to out of town games and practices, to the point security stepped in and told her to leave on these occasions. she went to buffalo and miami, making scenes in both places. when tom told her he didn’t want to marry or have a family with her, she should have closed her legs, walked away and find someone else. that would have been the classy way. it seems she can’t find a man, now that they know her MO. congrats to tom and gisele on a beautiful baby boy!!!

  41. tiffi says:

    Gisele spoke in the Interview about Tom,Ben, her mum and herself. Where is the problem. They sold not the pics, Family Brady (Tom,Ben and Gisele) were on a farm outside from Boston to look at a new house for them. They build a other house in Brentwood

  42. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “according to people close the family, she admitted to tom that her pregnancy was NOT an accident.”

    “people close to the family”…WHO, exactly? and what news outlet quoted those people? a legitimate one, or something along the lines of the Star or OK? because the tabs constantly quote a “source close to the family” or an “insider”, who most often does not exist.

    “she did beg him to go back to her and followed him to out of town games and practices, to the point security stepped in and told her to leave on these occasions. she went to buffalo and miami, making scenes in both places. when tom told her he didn’t want to marry or have a family with her, she should have closed her legs, walked away and find someone else.”

    again, your source for this? I remember when she announced her pregnancy and I don’t recall any information like this being published in any story about her pregnancy or their break up.

    so, bottom line…I don’t buy what you wrote. provide a source, please.

  43. fedricka says:

    I think little John is adorable, but the new baby looks like he may inherit Gisele’s real nose.

    You know she had a nose job right?

  44. Shayla says:

    praise saint angie, check out: bridget moynahan talks about being a single mom, then scroll down to #18 comments from jennifer , i’ve found others, but don’t remember which sites, but of all of them, this is the one that convinced me.

  45. natasha says:

    I am glad Bridget Moynahan is out of this mess. Tom and Gisele deserve each other. They both are the worst self absorbing couples ever. He looks like a caveman with his new hair and she always looks like a horse. She looks like a man and he’s like a girl. Their baby is cute, however. Great couples, creat match ha..ha.
    Thanks God, Jack has his mom to raise him. She reads with him, tries to give him a normal life. Bridget loves to read and Jack loves books. Tom? Well, in his interview lately said ” I am not a reader, writer” etc. Done! The guy is a jock and his wife is a “Mrs know-everything.” She is so into “environmental issue”, but they are buiding a 22,000 sqf home. I betcha she is installing solar energy to heat up that mansion ha..ha.. Her comment on legalizing breast feeding is absurd. I agree brest feeding is the best for a mandate it..c’mom. She has no idea how people on the street live. Majority of women on this planet has no choice and privelege to stay home and take care of the baby for months even weeks. I work with women in the shelter who got off the hospital and 3 days after that had to get back to work. (of course they didn’t have privelege to deliver the baby in the bathtub at home while meditating.) They never had a chance to ‘brestfeeding” their baby. If they don’t work, they won’t have money which mean no foods. I think Gisele just love to state her opinion which is fine with me. It just that her opinion often comes out as arrogant, insensitive, sometimes ignorant. She may mean well and as a lot of you pointed that she is a nice person. To me, she just an underwear model who loves attention.

  46. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.Tory burch handbags on sale
