New couple Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen have been longtime admirers of each other - even when they were dating Hollywood stars Bridget Moynahan and Leonardo Dicaprio.
The Brazilian supermodel and her New England Patriots quarterback beau are trying to keep their new romance low-key, but gossip went into overdrive when Bundchen was spotted waiting for her man outside the locker rooms after last weekend's (21JAN07) Patriots/Indianapolis Colts clash.
And now sports editors are recalling past interviews with the couple, during which they gushed about each other.
US magazine Sports Illustrated reports the Brazilian stunner held nothing back when she was asked to rate Brady in a 2005 chat.
She said, "He's definitely not too shabby. He's pretty cute."
Both Bundchen and Brady split from their respective partners last year (06).
