- Gisele Bündchen, Tom Brady’s wife, is just as excited for Super Bowl LIII as he is.
- The former supermodel boasts an impressive net worth that surpasses that of her husband.
- Bündchen modeled on the runway for 20 years and still has endorsements that earn her plenty of money.
Supermodel millionaire Gisele Bündchen is, like many, celebrating the New England Patriots making it to Super Bowl LIII. But her husband is also Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, so she has a special reason to celebrate. The former runway model took to social media to offer her congratulations to Brady and the team.
Bündchen and Brady are both power players in their respective industries. Brady will be playing in his ninth Super Bowl, the most appearances from any single player, and Bündchen modeled on the catwalk for two decades before her retirement in 2015 at age 34. However, when it comes to net worth, Bündchen has Brady beat. Here’s a look at the career and net worth of the former Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Birthdate: July 20, 1980
Net worth: $400 million
Primary sources of income: Modeling, endorsements
Career highlights: Victoria’s Secret Angel, 2000-2007
Gisele Bündchen’s Net Worth: $400M
Gisele Bündchen is worth $400 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. That’s a significant gap between her net worth and that of her husband, Tom Brady. With a net worth of $180 million, Brady is worth less than half, with the couple’s combined wealth totaling $580 million.

When she was modeling, Gisele Bündchen dominated the industry as the top-paid model in the world. She held on to this title for 15 years, until she was ousted from the position by Kendall Jenner in 2017. That year, Bündchen took home about $17.5 million.
Before that, the gap between Bündchen and other models was quite wide. She outearned other high-paid supermodels — including Cara Delevingne and Adriana Lima — nearly five times over between June 2014 and June 2015. Bündchen had made more than any other model since 2002 and has accumulated $430 million in earnings since 2001, Forbes reported in September 2015.

Gisele Bündchen’s Last Runway Walk
Bündchen’s last runway walked occurred during Sao Paulo Fashion Week in 2015. She earned $44 million between June 2014 and June 2015, according to Forbes. Though she walked away from the runway years ago, she’s put her time into other ventures.
Bündchen has had endorsement deals with Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Pantene. Furthermore, she’s lent her name for other companies to monetize, with some examples including a sandals line with Grendene, a lingerie brand with Hope and a beauty line with Sejaa Pure Skincare. These products have helped generate roughly $1 billion in annual sales.
On top of all that, Bündchen is also a United Nations Environment goodwill ambassador and mother of two.

Gisele Bündchen: World’s Highest-Paid Model, 2002 to 2017
Gisele Bündchen wasn’t always the world’s highest-paid model. She began modeling at just 14 years old. Now at age 38, she has a modeling career behind her filled with unprecedented success and achievement. She found success in the late ’90s, and in 2000 got her big break as a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
By the time she stopped modeling for the lingerie company in 2007, Victoria’s Secret was paying Bündchen $5 million a year, according to The Independent. Already the highest-paid model in the world, she raked in $33 million over the past year, Forbes reported in July 2007 — more than three times what the second-highest earning model, Kate Moss, made that same year.
