Net Worth

Gisele Bündchen net worth is 400 million dollars.

Although this amount is truly impressive by itself, it does not begin to fully portray the true wealth that Gisele wields as one-half of the power couple that she forms with her husband, Tom Brady.

Gisele is a highly successful former Victoria Secret model. Gisele was the highest paid model in the world for 15 years in a row.

In 2017, model Kendall Jenner became the highest paid model in the world, ending Gisele’s record.

Even though Jenner made more money in 2017, Gisele’s own salary continued to be impressive that year. In 2017 alone, Gisele made more than 17.5 million dollars. In 2016, Gisele earned a total of 30.5 million dollars. Forbes magazine reported that Gisele’s salary in 2018 was 10 million dollars.

At the height of her fame as a model, Gisele earned 44 million dollars from 2014 to 2015.

Gisele’s earnings as a model are even more impressive considering that she officially retired as a runway model in 2015. While Gisele does less modeling work than she does in the past, she told Ellen DeGeneres that she does not see herself ever fully retiring until she is dead.

While Gisele is mostly known for earning money as a model, it is no longer her only form of income. Gisele also earns money through endorsement contracts.

In addition to her own net worth, Gisele’s husband, Tom Brady, brings in an additional 180 million with his own net worth and a yearly salary of 15 million dollars. Together, the power couple’s net worth is more than half a million dollars.

Early Life

Gisele Caroline Bündchen was born as one of six daughters to Vânia Nonnenmacher and Valdir Bündchen on July 20, 1980.

While Valdir Bündchen worked as a college professor and writer, Vânia Nonnenmacher worked as a bank clerk. Both of Gisele’s parents were from Germany, but Gisele was born in Horizontina, a town in Southern Brazil.

Gisele would grow up in Horizontina, along with all five of her sisters: Raquel, Rafaela, Gabriela, Graziela, and Patricia. Growing up in such a multicultural city had a lasting effect on Gisele, who grew up with the ability to speak Portuguese, Italian, English, French, and Spanish.

The early dreams of Gisele in Brazil were more along the lines of her athletic future husband. Gisele dreamed of being a volleyball player but ended up taking modeling courses with two of her sisters.

Her first discovery as a model came in 1994 when Gisele was eating McDonald’s on a school trip.

One of Gisele’s earliest relationships was with fellow model Scott Barnhill. When that relationship ended, Gisele went on to date actors Josh Hartnett and Leonardo DiCaprio.

The relationship with DiCaprio earned Gisele part of the title of Most Beautiful Couple. That relationship was the longest one that Gisele had prior to meeting Brady, and it lasted for 4 years.

In 2006, Gisele and Brady were introduced by a mutual friend. Their relationship immediately faced difficulty, because a short 2 months after the two began dating, the couple discovered that Brady’s ex-girlfriend, Bridget Moynahan, was pregnant with his child.

In an interview with Charlie Rose, Gisele admitted that the period when Moynahan revealed her pregnancy was a very difficult one for the couple.

But Gisele chose to stay with Brady. Moynahan gave birth to a son, Jack, and Gisele has referred to him as the sweetest “bonus” child she could ever want.

Brady and Gisele had two wedding ceremonies. The first was held in February 2009 in a Catholic church in Santa Monica, California. The second ceremony was held in April 2009 in Costa Rica.

In addition to Jack, the couple is parents to Benjamin and Vivian. Both of Gisele’s children were born at home. Since becoming a mother, Gisele has advocated strongly for breastfeeding, plant-based diets and home remedies for illnesses.

Tips for success from Gisele Bündchen

1. Take care of your health and body first. Gisele admits that during her 20s, she was not living a healthy lifestyle, and that made her own fame very difficult to manage. It was only after she began to eat healthily and eliminate negative aspects of her lifestyle that she was able to be happy with the career that she was forging for herself.

2. Sometimes critics just are not worth listening to, and can only damage your self-esteem. When Gisele first began to model, many modeling agents thought she needed to lose weight. A year into her career, she had the “perfect” body according to those same critics. It was only by ignoring those critics that she was able to obtain the wealth and fame that she enjoys.
