Gisele Bundchen admits she struggled to keep her plans to wed Tom Brady a secret, but is glad she managed to have the intimate ceremony she had always dreamed of in February
Gisele Bundchen found planning two weddings "very hard".
The Brazilian supermodel - who tied the knot with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in an intimate California ceremony in February, with the couple reaffirming their vows in April in Costa Rico - admits keeping her big day a secret was one of the toughest things she has ever had to do.
She said: "We tried very hard to keep it private. Oh my God, you have no idea how hard that was. But it was worth it, we had a great time. I think we were very lucky.
"I think I'm the happiest person. You know what the secret to being happy is? Being grateful. And I'm very grateful."
The 28-year-old star added she had no idea security guards argued with photographers during the second ceremony, which reportedly saw shots being fired.
She explained to People magazine: "We were all there and nobody heard anything! The next day people were calling, and I'm like, 'I don't know what you're talking about.' I didn't even know it was happening. Later on, I was like, 'What? What happened on my day?' "
