Gisele Bündchen’s Friends Encouraged Her Daughter Vivi To Give Up Her Favorite Pastime — But It’s Just Not Happening

Most loved ones encourage the kids in their lives to follow their passions. But Gisele Bündchen’s friends are shamelessly discouraging the model’s daughter from continuing with her favorite sport. And it’s kind of understandable. Her 10-year-old daughter Vivi — who she shares with ex-husband Tom Brady — is one of the many kids of celebrities who are obsessed with horseback riding.

“She’s like, ‘Mom, I’m going to be a professional horseback rider.’ That’s all she wants to do,” Bündchen told People.

She joked with the outlet, saying that her friends are telling her to get as far as she can from the expensive sport. “When I was getting into it, people were like, ‘Gisele, get out while you can.’ I was like, ‘I don’t think I can get out. She’s obsessed.’”

And so instead of guarding her wallet, Bündchen recently purchased a horse farm for Vivi (No. Big. Deal.). This way, her daughter can ride in privacy. Right now, the model says they will only have one horse, but she might have a hard time saying no to the little girl, just like Brady did.

“Now she’s already trying to get other horses,” Bündchen said. “Like, ‘Mom. They told me I have to have a new horse to jump higher.’ I’m like, ‘You’re 10, calm down.’”

“But she’s so courageous,” the proud mom said.
