Despite rumors that she’s expecting a baby boy, Gisele Bündchen
says she doesn’t yet know the sex of her baby – and she doesn’t plan to find out!
"We decided not to know,” Bündchen, 29, who is expecting her first child with husband Tom Brady
, tells the Brazilian magazine Caras
in a new interview. "We will only know when it is born, in December."
"I want the emotion of finding out then if it is a boy or a girl," the supermodel says.
Of course that doesn’t mean she’s not already scouting baby clothes – and shoes – in case she has a little girl. Bündchen, who markets a line of sandals in Brazil, says she’s already reserved baby-size ones. "I kept some little sizes from the collections thinking that, if one day I had a girl, she would love to use them,” she said. “The baby versions are really cute."
And though she’s six months pregnant, Bündchen is not slowing down, traveling for work (her newest gig is as a goodwill ambassador
for the United Nation’s Environmental Program) and taking flying lessons
. She is expected to get her pilot’s license next month.
"I am going to keep traveling, but my home is in Boston," says Bündchen, who moved there from New York City to be close to her husband, 32, as he begins a new season with the New England Patriots.
And Bündchen, who says she’s been eating “more healthily” before the baby arrives, says Brady has been supportive, maybe even spoiling her a bit. "Tom is marvelous," she says.
