The romance between Gisele Bundchen and American football hero Tom Brady has shifted gear - the supermodel recently took the sports hunk back home to Brazil, to meet her parents.
Despite the news that Brady is the father of pregnant ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan's baby, Bundchen felt the time was right to introduce her new beau to her folks.
The couple took a low-key trip to Bundchen's native Porto Alegre, where the model's parents, VANIA and VALDIR, still live.
Friends suggest the trip is a sign that the model is mad about Brady because the only other guy she took home to meet the parents was former longtime boyfriend Leonardo Dicaprio.
A family source tells Life + Style magazine, "They both really liked Tom.
"Gisele wouldn't introduce Tom to her parents if she didn't think this relationship was serious."
