Supermodel Gisele Bundchen and her husband, Tom "Deflate Gate" Brady, met and fell in love in December 2006—a fairytale made slightly awkward when Brady's ex, Bridget Moynahan, revealed she was pregnant.

Though news of Moynahan's pregnancy came just months after Bundchen and Brady started dating, Gisele opted to stay in the relationship, and recently opened up about the decision to Charlie Rose. Because who doesn't want to dish their decade-old boy problems problems on TV, right? 

"It was a challenging thing because here I am, you know, thinking I'm dating this guy," she said. "We met, we started dating, everything is great, and then this happens, so I felt like I didn't know what to do.... Do I just run away?"

Obviously, Bundchen stuck with Brady and had a few children of her own—the modern-day Brady Bunch, if you will. (Har har.) And though she and her husband have been through "a few tough times," she told Charlie Rose that "he's a very kind man."

Those deflated footballs say otherwise, but still, this is pretty cute.
