Gisele Bündchen and her NFL star hubby Tom Brady welcomed their second child together on Wednesday – a baby girl!
“We feel so lucky to have been able to experience the miracle of birth once again and are forever grateful for the opportunity to be the parents of another little angel,” the supermodel wrote on her Facebook page. She shared a photo and added that the newborn is “healthy and full of life.”

What did they name their new daughter? Vivian Lake.
The baby, who was born at home in Boston, joins Benjamin Rein and five-year-old John, Brady’s son from his previous relationship with “Blue Bloods” actress Bridget Moynahan.
Fun fact: Benjamin turns three on Saturday so the two siblings will have close birthdays!
While Gisele did not say whether Vivian was born in the bathtub like her big brother, it’s a likely possibility, given that the 32-year-old has been vocal about how positive the experience was the first time around.
It “wasn’t painful, not even a little bit,” she said in a 2010 interview with the Brazilian TV show Fantastico. “The whole time, my head was so focused – every contraction, the baby is closer, the baby is closer. So, it wasn’t like, ‘Oh, what pain.’ It was, ‘With every contraction, he is getting closer to me.’”
Although the couple – who tied the knot back in February 2009 – never officially confirmed the pregnancy, Gisele was spotted with an obvious baby bump in November at Miami Beach, Florida.
The Brazilian beauty has spoken in the past about her desire to have several children. “I’d be lying if I said, ‘No,’ to wanting a lot of kids,” she told Vanity Fair in 2007.
As for the new dad, he’s going to be pretty busy for the next few months.
In addition to diaper duty, Brady, 35, will take the field for the New England Patriots on Monday night as the they close out the final weeks of the regular season – oh, and the team has already clinched a playoff spot.
But whether or not the quarterback takes home a Super Bowl ring in February, the birth of his daughter means he already has something to celebrate this year!
