Just because two people appear to have no physical imperfections does not mean their marriage is picture-perfect, too.
Such is the case for Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady, who have had a bumpy year, to say the least -- dealing with divorce rumors in the midst of the New England Patriots quarterback's involvement in Deflategate.
On Tuesday, the 35-year-old opened up to Charlie Rose on "CBS This Morning" about their six-year marriage, revealing they've "been through a few tough times together."
The supermodel went on to quash split rumors, explaining that they've gotten through trying times by leaning on one another and their loved ones.
"I think that's when you know who are your friends and who loves you. My father always said, the quality of your life depends on the quality of your relationships, and I think, no matter how challenging it was, we've always been supportive of one another," Bündchen told Rose. "I think that's the most important thing you can have in life, you know? A support system and love."
Of course, the couple has been dealing with trying times since they began dating nine years ago and soon discovered that Brady's ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan was pregnant with his child.
It's a subject the model has rarely discussed, but she called the situation a "challenging thing."
"Here I am, you know, thinking I'm dating this guy ... everything is great, and then this happens. So I felt I didn't know what to do," she said. "It was one of the moments like, ‘Do I just run away?’"
Of course, Bündchen didn't run.
“Now, eight years later, I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter bonus child," she said, referring to Brady and Moynahan's 8-year-old son, while she and the NFL player have two children of their own.
Meanwhile, Brady previously spoke out against the rumors the couple were headed for a split in September.
"We're in a great place, I'll just say that," the NFL player told Boston radio station WEEI 93.7 FM. "I'm a lucky man. I've been very blessed with support from my family and certainly her, and there's no bigger supporter that I have than her and vice versa. I've been very blessed to have an incredible relationship with my life partner, and I don't think anything will ever get in the way of that."
