Model mom, Gisele Bündchen, celebrates her birthday on July 20.
To mark her big day, the Huffington Post rounded up 21 parenting quotes from Bündchen.
Gisele, who has two children with NFL winning husband, Tom Brady, has been vocal about her motherhood journey in interviews and in her 2018 book, “Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life.”
Some of the quotes shared by the Huff Post include:
1. “When I became a mom, I kind of lost myself. It was like a part of me died. I’d been this very independent person… All I ever wanted was to be a mom, but when you’re actually experiencing that, it’s a shock.”
2. “As a mother, you’re always giving. It’s important to give something to yourself, so you can give from a place of being full, instead of giving from a place of being depleted, which isn’t healthy for you or for the family.”
3. “[I]f I ever hear someone saying, ‘She’s just a mom,’ it makes me angry. Being ‘just a mom’ is the foundation of everything. Being ‘just a mom’ ensures that our children have the foundation and support they need to succeed not just at work but at life. ”
4. “On my own Instagram, you won’t find a lot of photos of me with a headache or with bags under my eyes from staying up all night with my children when they get sick.”
