These are the first up-close pictures I’ve seen of Benjamin Brady (in Miami yesterday with his nanny) since he was like, fresh out that womb and wrinkly as hell, and I have to say, he’s a pretty good-looking baby. He’s like a chill, subtle hottie. He has sensitive eyes. Is he sexy? No. I wouldn’t use that word. But he has time.
Because no, according to her reps, she was not. The man in the above photo, the one who Gisele is apparently kissing, or about to kiss, is a lifelong friend by the name of Helly Nahmad.
The photo surfaced a few days ago, and naturally the speculation began swirling: ‘Was Gisele cheating on Tom Brady?’ ‘Is this Tom’s boyfriend that Bundchen’s kissing?’ — you name it, it was talked about. However, reps for the supermodel have come forward to, uh, Us magazine and refute all claims that Gisele would ever pucker up for anyone other than a popular American footballer:
Last Thursday, Gisele Bundchen was photographed kissing a man — not her husband, Tom Brady — at the Vogue 90th Anniversary party in Paris. Bundchen’s mystery party companion: NYC art dealer Helly Nahmad.
A rep for the supermodel, 30, tells UsMagazine.com: “This is her friend of 15 years, Helly. Her first New York friend when she moved here.”
Nahmad — who once dated another Brazilian model, Ana Beatriz Barros — is fluent in Portugese and was “the only one [Gisele] could speak to [when] she spoke no English,” the rep continues.
“He is very much part of her close circle of friends. No worries there!”
So there you have it. Not to mention, would you be puckering up in a wanton way with this Helly dude when you could go home and bang Tom Brady? Despite his dirty-looking Justin Bieber hair, Tom’s still definitely top notch in this case.
Because there was really no other way to take them, right? Jaysus beachballs.
So here’s the original comment, which garnered some pretty strong reactions from you guys yesterday:
“I think breastfeeding really helped (me keep me figure). Some people here (in the US) think they don’t have to breastfeed, and I think ‘Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?’ I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.”
And here’s what Gisele says she really meant (supermodel-speak is much different than the tongues of the commoners):
“My intention in making a comment about the importance of breastfeeding has nothing to do with the law. It comes from my passion and beliefs about children. Becoming a new mom has brought a lot of questions, I feel like I am in a constant search for answers on what might be the best for my child. It’s unfortunate that in an interview sometimes things can seem so black and white. I am sure if I would just be sitting talking about my experiences with other mothers, we would just be sharing opinions. I understand that everyone has their own experience and opinions and I am not here to judge. I believe that bringing a life into this world is the single most important thing a person can undertake and it can also be the most challenging. I think as mothers we are all just trying our best.”
Well. That was well-thought out, if not winded, backpedaling, and nervous. I think we have another Gwyneth Paltrow on our hands, ladies and gentlemen.
