Gisele Bündchen says she considered leaving husband Tom Brady after finding out his ex-girlfriend, actress Bridget Moynahan, was pregnant with his child in 2007.

“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,” Bündchen revealed during an interview with CBS This Morning‘s Charlie Rose. “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?’ ”

B ndchen, now 35, decided to stick around. She and Brady were married in 2009 and share two children together: Benjamin, 5, and Vivian, 2. John – Moynahan and Brady’s son – is now 8.

“I think, now, eight years later, I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter bonus child,” Bündchen said with a smile.

Moynahan – who’s a newlywed – and the couple have since struck a balance when it comes to co-parenting.

The Victoria’s Secret model, whose new $700 coffee table book sold out before even hitting shelves last week, spoke with high regard of her husband.

“He is a very kind man, he’s kind,” she said.

“I think we’ve been through a few tough times together,” she admitted, referencing Brady’s deflategate drama and divorce rumors. “I think that’s when you know, who are your friends, and who loves you. My father always says ‘the quality of your life depends on the quality of your relationships.’ ”

Through it all, Bündchen has said the pair remains supportive of each other – which she contends is the “most important thing you can have in life.”

“I’m so grateful to be where I am right now,” she told Rose of her life and career. “I feel fulfilled.”
