No one was more excited than Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen as she watched her husband, Tom Brady, work his latest bit of Super Bowl magic, leading the New England Patriots to a comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons in overtime.

There was a lot of bouncing when James White crossed the goal line, giving the Pats a 34-28 victory and their fifth championship in what was the first overtime game of the Super Bowl era.

“We never never felt out of it,” Brady, who had dedicated the game to his ailing mother, said after the game. “It was a tough battle.”

It might have been toughest on a certain Brazilian supermodel.
