Gisele Bundchen has become one of the world’s most famous models. She first sashayed into the modeling world back in the late ‘90s when the heroin chic thing was on its way out and, although she’s since retired from modeling, she’s still one of the world’s highest paid models. She’s about to turn 37 and she honestly looks as good as she did when she first launched her career, so we’re going celebrate her birthday with 10 things you didn’t know about the stunning model:
She was born on July 20, 1980 in Horizontina, Brazil, to Vânia Nonnenmacher, a bank teller, and Valdir Bündchen, a university teacher and writer turned business owner; both of her parents are of German descent. She has five sisters, Raquel, Graziela, Gabriela, Rafaela, and Patrícia, who is her fraternal twin and who is younger than Gisele by only five minutes!
