Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady have now been married for six years, but there was a time before they tied the knot when the Brazilian supermodel considered leaving him. It was when Tom's ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan was pregnant with his child in 2007. He and Gisele started dating in December 2006 and married in 2009.

"It was a challenging thing because here I am, you know, thinking, I'm dating this guy, we met, and we started dating and everything is great and then this happens," Gisele revealed on CBS This Morning. "So, then I felt like I didn't know what to do. It was kind of one of those moments of like, 'Do I just run away?'"

She didn't, and now shares a 5-year-old son Benjamin and 2-year-old daughter Vivian with her husband. Bridget gave birth to her son John, in August 2007, and married businessman Andrew Frankel just last month.

"I think, now, eight years later, I couldn't have asked for a sweeter bonus child," Gisele added, referring to her stepson John. She also gushed about Tom, saying that he is a kind man and that although they've been through rough patches, they remain very supportive of each other and are a family, after all.

"I'm so grateful to be where I am right now," she said. "I feel fulfilled."
