Gisele Says She's a Bostonian Now

3/16/2010 12:02:00 AM
Gisele is on the cover of the latest Vogue magazine and she looks pretty awesome for having just had a kid.  I don't normally read Vogue, so I just skimmed the article, but came to a grinding halt when she said that she now considers herself a Bostonian.  All I can say is, Welcome!

Benjamin was born at home, in warm water in a deep bathtub that overlooks the Charles River. "I wanted to experience the transformation," says Gisele. A midwife friend of hers came in from Brazil as did her mother; her husband was there too. Gisele meditated through the birth.

The baby is called Benjamin Rein: "I wanted him to be called River because I wanted something always flowing, immortal. My husband said, 'There's no way we're going to call him River.' But my father's name is Reinoldo, so it's a homage to him. And it's like water."

She's regained her figure, apparently instantly and with no more exercise than some yoga on a mat in the living room. "I think it's muscle memory," she says. Gisele has always been in shape ... I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals. I was mindful about what I ate, and I gained only 30 pounds."

 29, the last and richest of the supermodels has given in to her preference for the inner life. Gisele has sold her New York town house. "I'm really a Bostonian now," she says, with all the sober, studious implications of that move.
Leave it to Gisele to give women everywhere more reasons to hate her.  She gained "only" 30 lbs and then lost it after 6 weeks of having her baby.  Impressive.  Very impressive.
