Gisele Bundchen proved during the 2019 Super Bowl that she is her husband Tom Brady’s biggest fan. Brady feels the same about his wife, as he proved on Thursday evening at the 2019 Hollywood for Science Gala in Los Angeles. The Brazilian model was honored at the event for her environmental activism while Brady watched proudly in the audience. On the red carpet, the football star offered up nothing but praise and support for his wife.
“She’s inspiring to me in so many ways,” Brady told Entertainment Tonight. “It’s really special for her, and I love that she’s here celebrating. I am very proud of her.”
The loving couple posed together for photos during the event, with Bundchen wearing a white one-shouldered Stella McCartney gown and Brady sporting a black suit. They shared plenty of hugs and kisses as they celebrated Bundchen’s award win.
Bundchen and Brady have been married since 2009. They share a son, Benjamin, 9, and a daughter, Vivian, 6. Brady also shares another son, John, 11, with ex Bridget Moynahan, who is often seen in the football stands cheering on his father alongside Bundchen.
In early February, Bundchen and her children watched Brady take home the trophy at the 2019 Super Bowl. Decked out in jerseys bearing Brady’s New England Patriots number, the family stormed the field after the game at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia to shower the star player with love and praise.
“She’s a wonderful woman,” the quarterback explained to Hollywood Life at the gala. “She has my heart.”
The Hollywood for Science Gala supports UCLA’s Institute of Environment and Sustainability. Bundchen is a UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador, and as such helps the organization to bring awareness to environmental issues. She is the face of several UN Environment campaigns and often takes on field missions in Kenya and Brazil.
A summary of Bundchen’s history with environmental activism can be found on the UN Environment website.
Bundchen received an award for her hard work alongside singer Barbra Streisand. Following the ceremony, the model shared a photo of herself posing with her award on Instagram and wrote about the importance of keeping the environment safe.
It was announced in January that Bundchen and Streisand would be recognized at the Hollywood for Science Gala. IoES Global Fundraising chairman Milutin Gatsby, a host of the event, explained that awards are given to activists who use their powerful voices to make changes in the world of science, according to Variety.
