Supermodel Gisele Bundchen will confirm her engagement to American footballer Tom Brady in days, ending weeks of speculation, according to new reports.
The Brazilian beauty was initially rumoured to have said yes to Brady's proposal on Christmas Eve (24Dec08), but Bundchen's father blasted the reports, insisting his daughter had yet to inform the family of the impending nuptials.
According to People.com, Brady, 31, proposed to 28-year-old Bundchen with a diamond solitaire on Friday (09Jan09), informing friends and family over the weekend (10-11Jan09).
A source close to the couple says, "He asked and she accepted. The couple is discussing a huge fashionista event in the spring or a more intimate and quicker ceremony in Costa Rica, where Gisele has a home."
An official announcement and preliminary wedding details are reportedly being planned by Bundchen and her closest friends this week (begs12Jan09).
Her agent has refused to confirm or deny the reports, saying, "We don't comment on our clients' private lives."
The couple has been dating since Brady split from actress Bridget Moynahan in 2006, with whom he shares a 16-month-old son. Bundchen has previously dated Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
