Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, who is Catholic, christened their 6-month-old son Benjamin in Santa Monica Tuesday.
At a small party at luxury hotel Casa Del Mar, “Gisele arrived carrying Benjamin, who was wearing a little white suit,” a witness told Us magazine. “She was wearing a skin tight navy dress with heels and she looked great. Tom matched her in a navy suit and carried Gisele’s bag for her. They greeted everyone in the lobby area and then they moved into the restaurant for lunch.”
Added the source, “Everyone was passing Benjamin around and doting on him. He was happy the whole time and just looking around taking it all in. When he would smile, everyone would marvel and give him kisses. All the family members were taking turns holding him. You could really see how much they love him. After the luncheon, they drove home and Benjamin fell asleep in the car. Gisele carried him inside on her shoulder and he didn’t wake up.”
Shortly after welcoming son Benjamin in December Gisele, 29, wrote on her website: “Giving birth was the most intense and life-changing experience. I am blessed to have been able to have a home birth surrounded by love, where I was able to feel safe. It was a powerful experience. I never felt so vulnerable but so strong at the same time.”
Gisele and Tom, 32, wed last year in a private ceremony in Los Angeles. Tom also has a son, John, nearly 3, with ex Bridget Moynahan.
