Gisele Bundchen brought her stepson John Moynahan to a park in LA yesterday for an afternoon on the playground. Gisele seems happier than ever publicly playing with John who is already a looker just like his dad. Gisele doesn't usually talk about her personal life, but she made an exception as the covergirl of April's Harper's Bazaar where her happiness and maternal instincts couldn't help but shine through. Here are highlights:
- On Tom: "Tom is a good guy. He has a very pure heart. He's very naive, almost like a child. That is my favorite quality about him. One thing that I thought was so amazing when I first met him is that he is innocent. He sees the world with colored glasses. . .It's beautiful, but I think that is rare. I love that about him. No one else sees that. He's very strong and focused in his job, but he's so sensitive, it's amazing."
- On having a family: "I want to have a big family. My parents have been together for 36 years, and that is what I want. I am in that place. It's all good in that part of my life. It's one part of my life that I'm learning about every day. I've been challenged a lot by it, but it's the most rewarding part. . . I love kids," she says, smiling, her eyes lighting up. "It's amazing that I have the opportunity to hang out with my stepson all the time. He is so kind. He loves blueberries, and every now and then my dog, Vida, tries to get some food from him. He is so nice that he will give her the blueberries first. He is so cute and has such a sweet demeanor.""
- On her past: "I was drinking a lot of red wine, smoking a pack and a half of cigarettes a day, and eating cheeseburgers all day. I was treating my body, which is my temple and my best friend, as my worst enemy. I was almost punishing myself. I was so tired. I was working so much, and I was numb. . . If you are happy, you can give happiness. If you don't love yourself and if you are unhappy with yourself, you can't give anything else but that."
Lucky Gisele on that last quote. Otherwise, she seems sweet and happy — after all the criticism and rumors at this point it's hard not to see the newlyweds through Tom's rose-colored glasses. To see more photos of Gisele and John just read more.
