Gisele has opened up about the secrets to her famously happy marriage to Tom Brady.

The legendary supermodel (36) wed the NFL quarterback (39) have been married for eight years and the former Victoria's Secret Angel said the key to their rock-solid union is growing and evolving together as a couple and as parents to their two children.

Gisele, who is the world's most successful model with a net worth of an estimated $360m, sat down on CBS' This Morning to discuss her "wonderful" marriage to the superstar athlete and she's his biggest supporter on and off the field.

"He’s playing football. It’s a contact sport and a very aggressive sport. But he knows I will always support him. And I want him to be happy," she said.

"And if that makes him happy, and he loves to do that, then I’m always gonna support him like I always have. So I want him to be happy and fulfilled."

Broadcaster Charlie Rose said, "You’ve changed him, and he’s changed you."

To which Bundchen responds: "Yeah, I think that’s what we’ve done. We do most of our growing in relationships because...they see all of us, right? All the sides of us.”

"I think we have been growing and learning a lot from each other. You know, walkin’ this life with a partner where you can always grow and learn from, it’s wonderful."

The couple have two children Benjamin (seven) and Vivian Lake (four) together and have never shied away from gushing about their feelings for each other over the years.

Earlier this year, Brady said he credits a gift his wife gave him for keeping him safe, saying: "She gave me this (necklace) for protection, and she’d be really happy that I’m wearing it because she doesn’t like anyone hitting me. She always says, 'Throw the ball really fast, really fast.' So that’s what I try to do."

"I’ve been very blessed to find her. Wonderful woman, wonderful partner. She does everything," he told reporters in January.
