Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady are enjoying some family time this Easter.
The supermodel, 38, shared photos on Instagram of their kids Benjamin, 9, Vivian, 6, and stepson Jack, 11 (Brady’s son shared with ex Bridget Moynahan) at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, on Saturday and Sunday.
“Happy Easter! Sending all my love to you and your families!” the mother of two wrote.
“Cousins reunited,” she captioned a photo of their children at California Adventure.
And Brady is a big fan of the Disney Parks!
After winning the Super Bowl this year, the Patriots quarterback and teammate Julian Edelman — who won the title of game MVP — went to Walt Disney World in Florida to celebrate the sixth time their team secured the Vince Lombardi trophy.
It’s far from unusual for Bündchen and Brady to spend time together as a blended family. The couple and Moynahan have made co-parenting seamless.
“It wasn’t the ideal situation for anyone — there’s no manual to prepare you for that,” Bündchen told PEOPLE.
“But I’m so grateful for [Bridget],” she added. “I know this was hard, but I couldn’t imagine my life without [Jack]. I call him my bonus child.”
Moynahan echoed Bündchen’s feelings. “Tom and I made a decision to raise a child together and we both found partners that not only supported us in raising that child, but also loved our child as if he was their own,” she told PEOPLE “I don’t think you can ask for more than that. My son is surrounded by love and grandparents that go on forever, and it’s all good.”
Bündchen revealed that her love for Jack ultimately made her “want to start a family” with Brady right away, whom she married in 2009. And though they had previously discussed waiting 10 years to have children, they realized they “wanted Jack to have a brother or sister close in age.”
However, once she did welcome children of her own, the famously private supermodel revealed that motherhood was a tough adjustment. “Things can be looking perfect on the outside, but you have no idea what’s really going on,” Bündchen told PEOPLE. “I felt like maybe it was time to share some of my vulnerabilities, and it made me realize, everything I’ve lived through, I would never change, because I think I am who I am because of those experiences.”
“When I became a mom, I kind of lost myself. It was like a part of me died,” she added. “I’d been this very independent person. It was all about me. But now I had this little being, and I suddenly felt l couldn’t do other things and that was very hard for me. All I ever wanted was to be a mom, but when you’re actually experiencing that, it’s a shock.”
