Supermodel Gisele Bundchen claims she didn't feel any pain when she was in labour with her eight-week-old son Benjamin
Gisele Bundchen claims she wasn't in pain when giving birth.
The Brazilian supermodel - who welcomed son Benjamin, her first child with husband Tom Brady, into the world in December - insists the labour didn't hurt because she was so excited about meeting her baby.
She told Brazilian TV station Fantasticoshe: "It didn't hurt in the slightest. The whole time my mind was focused in each contraction on the thought, 'My baby is closer to coming out.'
"It wasn't like, 'This is so painful.' So I transformed that intense feeling into a hope of seeing him."
Gisele - who is also stepmother to Tom's two-year-old son John - fell intensely in love with Benjamin as soon as he was born.
She said: "It's wonderful. Never in my life I thought I could love like this. You hear people talking about it, but you don't know until it happens to you. I couldn't be happier."
Gisele, 29, also revealed she is breastfeeding her son, and while it's very tiring, she is enjoying every moment of it.
She told the Folha de Sao Paulo newspaper: "In these first months, the baby breastfeeds twice in two hours or three times in three hours. It is really tiring, but it's such a special moment that I am enjoying to the maximum. I have dedicated my days completely to him."
