Though she continued flying into her eighth month of pregnancy, Gisele Bündchen has put on hold the exam she needs to become a helicopter pilot until next year, so she can prepare for her new arrival, a friend of hers tells PEOPLE.
"She has stopped with her lessons. She stopped before Thanksgiving," says Keith Douglass, president of Shoreline Aviation, which provided the model with her copter lessons. "She's waiting to have the baby and then she's going to start up when things settle down again."
Bündchen, 29, who passed the required written exam last month, only had her in-flight test left to go before she would become a pilot, but Douglass says she didn't mind putting her aviation dreams on a brief hold. "She took it in stride," he says. "She pretty much knew she would have to stop when she got close to her due date."

Tom Brady knows how to keep a secret! Just ask Gisele Bündchen, whose husband found out the sex of their baby – due this month – even though she's waiting on a surprise.
"I’m really the only one that knows at this point," Brady, 32, said in an interview with WEEI Sports Radio on Wednesday. "My dad asked me. I haven't told him. [Gisele] doesn’t know. It’s a pretty good feeling knowing something that no one else knows."
Especially, Brady adds, because he’s been able to keep it from Bündchen, 29. "She’s a very intelligent woman," he explains. "I wanted to find out and she didn’t, so she said, 'Go ahead.' It will be a surprise for her."

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.

Tom Brady is finally talking about the good news: wife Gisele Bündchen is, indeed, pregnant.
In an interview with ESPN's Chris Berman airing Sunday on SportsCenter and Monday Night Countdown, the 32-year-old New England Patriots quarterback reveals that the couple – who married earlier this year – expect their baby-on-the-way in December.
While Brady said he would happily attend Lamaze classes with Bündchen, he will do so with at least one caveat: "I told her no Sundays," he joked. "It couldn't be harder than training camp, so I'll be prepared."

Pregnant with her first child, supermodel Gisele Bündchen is focusing on family and home life these days.
"I am crazy about children ... I am an adoptive mother ... I've already had this experience for two years," she says in a recent TV interview with Brazil's Fantastico, of her relationship with husband Tom Brady's 21-month-old son John Brady, whose mother is actress Bridget Moynahan.
Bündchen also raves about getting hitched this past Spring. "I think I've met the right person, my partner, my companion," she says. "I already knew that we would get married a year and a half before we got married. We felt it. The heart spoke louder."

Gisele Bündchen is expecting and "ecstatic," sources tell PEOPLE. She is due early next year.
Speculation has grown since pictures showing the supermodel in Brazil this week surfaced showing what seems to be a perceptible bump. Bündchen and New England Patriots quarterback husband Tom Brady were married twice this Spring – first in a ceremony in Los Angeles Feb. 26, then exchanging vows before friends in early April at Bündchen's Costa Rica home.
"Gisele will be an excellent mother," a source tells PEOPLE. "She's always wanted kids." Reps for Bündchen reached by PEOPLE for confirmation refused to comment.

Don't place any bets on when Gisele Bündchen might marry boyfriend Tom Brady, says the supermodel.
"I'm happy as I am," she tells the Spanish edition of Vogue in its September issue. "Why is the whole world worked up about my getting married? I'm having a great time and I want to enjoy it."
The 28-year-old Brazilian model – who appears on the magazine's cover labeled "The Goddess" – also says she doesn't consider herself a supermodel. " 'Super' is for heroes and those who do extraordinary things," she says.
