While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the model, 38, opened up about the many talents of her husband of nine years. “He’s an amazing waffle maker,” she says. “He makes great waffles.” DeGeneres quickly questions the difficulty of this skill: “The kind that you just literally push that thing down?” Bündchen then tells the host that he makes them from scratch, but he might get a little help. “He has a secret recipe, which I’m sure there’s some package thing involved,” she says. “I have never seen him making it because he literally won’t let me see it. He jokes with me, he says, ‘I can’t give you the secret otherwise you won’t need me anymore.'” RELATED: Tom Brady Says He’ll Never Let Up on His Rigorous Diet, Even When He’s Retired But Bündchen says she’s totally okay with not knowing: “So I say, ‘Okay, that’s fine, it tastes delicious, I’ll keep eating them.'” Jamie McCarthy/Getty If You Buy This Starbucks Tumbler You Can Get Free Coffee Every Day in January While she might not know what is in the waffle mix, it’s safe to assume they are at least a little bit healthy.

But I believe in the ideas of balance and moderation, and if I’m in a place with incredible food, I’ll absolutely try it.” He also had notably never eaten a strawberry until Stephen Colbert forced the issue last March.
