Gisele Bündchen spoke openly about her family with husband Tom Brady and her life as a parent. Answering questions on her Instagram story, she covered what being a stepmother means to her and how she balances family life.

Brady shares 12-year-old son John "Jack" Edward Thomas with former partner Bridget Moynahan. When asked about what it's like to be a stepmother, the supermodel said, "I don’t like the word ‘stepmom.' I like the word ‘bonus mom’ because I feel like it’s a blessing in my life. I feel so lucky that I got to have an extra wonderful little angel in my life.”

A fan also asked her how she balances family and social life together, especially since her and Tom seem "so busy."

"I don't think there's a secret recipe," she replied. "I think we just try our best to be present with the kids when we are with the kids and be fully there with them, really listening to them. It's not so much the amount of time. I think it's the quality of time.”

Bündchen married the New England Patriots quarterback in 2009. The couple also shares a 10-year-old son, Benjamin Rein, and seven-year-old daughter, Vivian Lake.
