The first pictures of Gisele and little baby Benjamin in American Vogue

Of course Vogue is the first to get official pictures of Gisele with her baby! And they are gorgeous pictures, all by Patrick Demarchelier (see above)! I guess those rumours about her not having to buy new clothes when pregnant were true. Somehow I doubt we will have the same sort of discipline when it comes to being pregnant (can you say “ice cream” and “doughnuts” please?). Apparently Gisele only gained thirty pounds during her pregnancy. When stretching that across her lanky frame it’s next to nothing! And what’s this…no pain killers or anything for the birth?!

Benjamin was born at home, in warm water in a deep bathtub that overlooks the Charles River. “I wanted to experience the transformation,” says Gisele. A midwife friend of hers came in from Brazil as did her mother; her husband was there too. Gisele meditated through the birth. “It was the most amazing experience of my life, feeling him come through my body. And once he was born, I never felt so empowered as looking at him and thinking, Oh, my God, we did it together!” 

Ok, we’re convinced now that Gisele isn’t human. She’s gorgeous, gains next to nothing during pregnancy and gives birth naturally without an ounce of pain to report on? Yes, we are so jealous. It is obvious so there’s no point denying it. She’s an ideal woman….

So as if all this weren’t enough she leaves the Vogue reporter with two secrets that make us think she is the offspring of the Dalai Lama:

“The first is wake up in the morning and be grateful you are here, alive and healthy. And the second is: Give.”

Oh and we must mention that the reporter needed no ride home as Tom Brady drove her back to her hotel. Hello, we are in the wrong job. Vogue, are you hiring?
