Latest Celebrity Rumors

{March 11, 2007}   Gisele Pregnant? Anatomy of a Rumor


Are Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen expecting a baby? Rumors have been flying over the last few days, with blogs and gossip columns getting conflicting reports about the supposed pregnancy.

The rumor was made that much juicier because Brady’s ex, Bridget Moynahan, 36, is four months pregnant with his child. The couple of three years split in December, and a month later Brady took up with Bundchen, with whom he recently took a romantic vacation through Paris, Rome, and Milan, before heading to Brazil last week where he met the model’s parents.

Reps for Moynahan, Brady, and Gisele say that they are not commenting on the rumor. In the meantime, Us deconstructs how the gossip began and what people close to the couple are saying.

How the rumor started:
The popular Brazilian celebrity website reported on Wednesday that the 26-year-old Victoria Secret model is expecting a baby with the New England Patriots quarterback and has shared the good news with several select friends and family members.

What insiders are telling Us:
Sources inside Victoria’s Secret tell that Bundchen isn’t pregnant.

Insiders at the Patriots, who confirmed to Moynahan’s pregnancy to when we broke the news in February, tell Us that Bundchen is not expecting.

Moynahan is said to be unsure as well, waiting to find out the truth along with everyone else.

However, a source tells New York Daily News’ Rush & Molloy: “She has told friends it’s true.”

What her family is saying:
Bundchen’s father, Valdir, denied the report to the Brazilian daily newspaper O Dia, saying: “It is not true. I speak with Gisele every day and she would have told me.”

The model’s sister Raquel seconded her father, telling that it was a false report:

“It is clear that Gisele is not pregnant. She is well and has lots of commitments (meaning modeling gigs),” said the supermodel’s sis.

Raquel also told Ego that Gisele’s twin sister, Patricia, told her: “People are inventing things.”

Fuel for the fire:
Bundchen recently told Italian Vanity Fair that she’d like to have children, but she’s in no hurry. “I’d be lying if I said [I didn’t want a family] — my parents have been married for 35 years and have six children,” she said. “Thing is, I’m just 26 years old, so I have plenty of time.”
