Rumors of Gisele Bündchen's retirement have been greatly exaggerated.
"I've never worked so hard in my life, actually," the 38-year-old supermodel said with a laugh on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday. "I think I'll retire only the day I die, because I love working. I love creating. I think that's why we're here: to keep creating, expanding and learning."
Since they were on the subject of retirement, Ellen DeGeneres was curious if Bündchen's husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, is getting ready to hang up his cleats. "I'm a Saints fan," she said, "and it would help me tremendously if your husband would retire."
"I think you should talk with him about that," Bündchen said. "I haven't been successful."
Asked whether she wants him to retire, Bündchen gave a diplomatic answer. "I want him to do whatever makes him happy," she said. "Maybe if you have a conversation with him, you know?"
Given how physically taxing Brady's line of work is, Bündchen told DeGeneres, "I definitely wouldn't want to have his job, that's for sure. I'll stay happy with mine. I think it's definitely something you get concerned with, but he loves it so much. You gotta let him do what he loves."
Given how successful he is on and off the field, DeGeneres was curious if he has any faults. "Is there anything that he's not good at?" she asked. "He just seems like he's good at everything."
"He's terrible at...He's not a multi-tasker," Bündchen said. "He can just do one thing at a time."
Bündchen then revealed yet another thing he's good at. "He's an amazing waffle maker...He actually makes the batter and jokes with me, 'I can't give you the secret, otherwise you won't need me anymore.' He has some secret recipe; I'm sure there's some packaged thing involved," she said. "But I have never seen him making it because he literally won't let me see it. He says, 'Then you won't need me.' I say, 'OK! That's fine.' It tastes delicious. I can't stop eating them."
