Gisele Bundchen acts like a "cheerleader" when she watches her husband play football.

The Brazilian supermodel admits she can't control herself when she goes to her spouse Tom Brady's games for the New England Patriots because she always wants to show him her support.

Gisele - who married the NFL star in February 2009 - said: "He's such a Gentle Giant. I'm so proud of him. When I go to watch him play, I'm like this big cheerleader, jumping up and down for him. I was born such a passionate person. I don't know if that's my blessing or curse!"

As well as cheering on her spouse, Gisele - who has a 23-month-old son, Benjamin, with Tom, and is also stepmother to his five-year-old boy John with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan - says being with her young family is the most important thing to her.

She told Vogue magazine: "Actually, I've never really been the kind of person who clubbed and stuff. I'm a cancer, see. I'm home-loving. I really enjoy feeling safe, in my own environment, surrounded by the people I love."
