“My father always says the quality of your life depends on the quality of your relationships,” she told CBS. “And I think no matter how challenging it was, we were always being supportive of one another. And you know, that’s the most important thing you can have in your life… a support system and love.”
Brady once revealed that being around Bundchen has changed his outlook on life. She grew up in a different environment than he did, which challenged his worldview in a positive way.
“Gisele’s life has been very nontraditional,” Brady told Men’s Health. “She left home when she was 14; she lived in Japan at 16 in an era with no cell phones. She lived in New York at 17 without speaking English.
In her mind, there are no boundaries. ‘Why can’t you do that? Why do you have to go to school? Why can’t you just leave and live in a different country?’ In her reality, you can.”
