Finally, Gisele Bündchen, 43, opened up, albeit shyly, about her romance with Brazilian jiu-jitsu teacher Joaquim Valente. The revelation was made by her to Ana Maria Braga on Mais Você.

Ana started showing some moves that she learned from the instructor and said that everything was even better because he was her boyfriend. Even embarrassed, the top confirmed the relationship.

“He stayed [namorado] Now, it’s been a short time, but it’s really cool to show men that women are in charge. I feel safer walking down the street and it’s really very important,” she said, visibly embarrassed.

Since breaking up with Tom Brady, Gisele no longer spoke about her intimate life. Her relationship with Valente had been speculated since their separation, but she always denied that they were a couple. Even so, they had already been seen together a few times on family trips.

During the interview, Gisele Bündchen said that she feels “much better at 40 than at 20”, precisely because of the choices she made. The result of this change of route towards being healthier resulted in her newest cookbook “Nourish: Simple Recipes for Body and Soul”.

“At 22 years old, I had anxiety, depression and had no idea that this was connected to food. Life was very fast, I lived out of a suitcase, I didn’t exercise. I spent a year and a half like this. Instead of starting the day with coffee and cigarettes, I realized I had to change”, he said.

Since then, Gisele says it has only evolved. Today, she no longer takes any medications. “Just tea. I’m the tea woman,” she joked. She gives the same instruction to her children, who live with her in Florida.

“Health is the most important thing. Life is a gift and every day we will have the opportunity to grow, learn and live. Gratitude for all things and experiences, some difficult and others better”, he added.

At a certain point in the interview, Ana Maria remembered the death of Vânia, the top model’s mother, and made her cry. Afterwards, the Brazilian revealed that now, after her departure, she is even more connected to healthy habits. “I want the best for everyone I love.”
