If some girls have all the luck, Gisele Bundchen is queen of ‘some girls’ lately -- just three months after giving birth to she and Tom Brady‘s little boy, the supermodel is back in fighting shape and back on the cover of Vogue.
For the glossy’s annual shape issue, Bundchen flaunts a figure that’s almost exactly what it was before she gave birth, and even treats readers to a little peek of baby Benjamin Rein.
‘I wanted him to be called River because I wanted something always flowing, immortal,’ Bundchen told writer Joan Juliet Buck. ‘My husband said, ‘There’s no way we’re going to call him River.’ But my father’s name is Reinoldo, so it’s a homage to him.’ Where her rebound bod is concerned, Bundchen attributes her good fortune to ‘muscle memory,’ but says she maintained a pregnancy regime of yoga (three times weekly) and kung fu lessons.
‘I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals. I was mindful about what I ate, and I gained only 30 pounds,’ Bundchen said.
