Tom Brady

 The 33-year-old supermodel couldn’t resist posting a gushing message on Instagram on Tom’s 36th birthday on Saturday, where she spoke about her love for her spouse of four years.

She wrote: "Happy birthday my love! Thank you for being the best husband, father and friend.

"Thank you for being you. I love you so much."

Gisele and Tom have two children together, three-year-old son Benjamin and seven-month-old daughter Vivian while the New England Patriots player also has a son, John, five, from his previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.

Gisele has previously spoken about her love of being a mother and said she wanted lots of children with Tom.

She said: "I want to have a big family. My parents have been together for 36 years, and that is what I want. I’ve been challenged a lot by it, but it’s the most rewarding part. I love kids."

Tom has also said he is keen to have lots of children, but balance it with having a successful career.

He said: "I have to do something [after football]. The only thing I ever wanted to be was a professional football player. It's hard because I want to have four kids and I want to be a really good dad, too."
