"I've had wonderful influences in my life – my parents, my brothers and sister – and I just thought at a very young age if you don’t have that, you might as well throw in the towel ... I think at the end of the day your family is all you’ve got. There’s lots of fights and disagreements, [but] I come from an amazing family."
Anthony Shriver, carrying on his and sister Maria Shriver's annual tradition of participating in the Best Buddies Challenge bike ride from the JFK Library in Boston to the beach in Hyannis Port this weekend, told PEOPLE his secrets to success. The father of five started Best Buddies International, which promotes friendships for people with intellectual disabilities, in 1989.

Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady attended Gisele's twin sister Patricia's wedding in Brazil on Saturday – and their 3-month-old son Benjamin cut a dashing figure, sporting a mini tuxedo for the occasion.
Patricia, who is Gisele's fraternal twin, married Rodrigo Pereira at the Laurentia Vineyard outside Porto Alegre. Gisele, 29, served as maid of honor – leaving Brady, 32, in charge of the diaper bag.
The evening coincided with Earth Hour, when people around the world turn off their lights for an hour as a symbolic commitment to the environment – a gesture the wedding guests also observed.

Gisele Bündchen may not be getting much sleep since giving birth to her first child, Benjamin, with husband Tom Brady in December – but she doesn't mind.
"I haven't slept much," the supermodel, who says she's up at all hours breast-feeding, tells Brazil's Folha de Sao Paulo newspaper. "It is really tiring, but it's such a special moment that I am enjoying it to the maximum. I have dedicated my days completely to him."
Bündchen, 29, calls her newborn son "a little angel," and says becoming a parent has changed her. "To be a mother is a magical experience. The whole body is transformed by this," she says. "It really is the miracle of life. I am really happy!"

Now that Tom Brady is a father for the second time, his ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan, the mother of his 2-year-old Jack, is offering her congratulations.
"I wish [Tom and Gisele] the best with their baby," the actress, 38, tells PEOPLE in a statement. "I'm sure my son will enjoy having a half-sibling. I ask the press to respect our privacy while we are welcoming this new addition to our extended family."
Bündchen, sources say, is currently recovering with her mother Vania and sister Patricia by her side, after delivering the baby boy Tuesday night.
Brady said on Wednesday that the couple have not yet picked a name for their newborn son.

Tom Brady knew that his wife Gisele Bündchen was having a boy before she did, but that hasn't made it any easier for the quarterback to select a name.
"I don't have any picks, so we haven't really chosen one yet," Brady, 32, said Wednesday of their new arrival. "But everyone is great. Everyone is doing really well."
Bündchen, 29, delivered a baby boy Tuesday night, with her twin sister Patricia and mother Vania by her side for support.

There's another Brady in the bunch.
Gisele Bündchen and husband Tom Brady welcomed a baby boy on Tuesday night.
Brady announced the news to reporters Wednesday after People.com reported the story. The football star called his son's birth "a wonderful experience in my life." He also told reporters happily, "I didn't get much sleep last night," USA Today reports.
Bündchen, 29, and New England Patriots quarterback Brady, 32, were married in a private ceremony in February in Los Angeles. In April, they held a follow-up wedding for friends and family at Bündchen's Costa Rican estate.

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."
