Gisele Bündchen is ringing in her 39th birthday with a whole lot of love, care of husband Tom Brady.

The Patriots quarterback took to Instagram to post a photo of his supermodel wife looking stunning as ever. “Happy Birthday Mamai!” he captioned the shot. He continued in Portuguese (the model’s native language) writing, “You are the light that illuminates our days!!! We love you so much!!”

In honor of Brady’s 40th birthday in 2016, Bündchen posted a similarly heartfelt message for her husband. "Over 10 years ago I fell in love with you because of your beautiful and sensitive heart, she wrote. I love the sweetness in your essence. Today you are starting a big new chapter and I wish you so much happiness and fulfillment in all aspects of your life. Happy birthday my love! Making 40 feel like 20!!! You go [Tom Brady] !!!! Te amo."

The couple has been married for 10 years—Bündchen has previously said she fell in love at first sight with Brady’s “kind eyes”—and even after a decade are clearly very much in love. In 2018, Brady opened up in an interview with Oprah Winfrey about their relationship. "I just love having to come home to someone that engages me every night," he said. "She makes me laugh."

He explained that the two are opposites in certain ways, which is why they work so well together. “She flies in the sky and she's so creative and I'm very rooted, so she stretches me in ways without her I couldn't be stretched," he said, adding, “she can always count on me and I can always count on her."

And of course, they can always count on each other for some sweet (and absolutely adorable) birthday love via Instagram.
