Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady have revealed the name of their newborn son.

In a new message posted on her personal Web site, Bundchen announced that she and her NFL husband have named their son Benjamin.

“I want to thank you all with all my heart for the immense love I have received here on the website. It is a pleasure to receive messages from each one of you here,” the message said. “I am living a very special moment in my life, Benjamin is a blessing and I could not be happier.”

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the couple welcomed their son earlier this month and Brady — the quarterback for the New England Patriots — told reporters it has been “a wonderful experience in my life.”

Bundchen, 29, and Brady, 32, were married twice this spring. They first walked down the aisle in a very private ceremony on Feb. 26 at St. Monica Catholic Church in Los Angeles and then again in early April in the Nicoya Peninsula region of Costa Rica, where the Brazilian beauty owns a home.

This is Bundchen’s first child. Brady has a son, John, with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan.

In her message, Bundchen also took time to spread a little holiday cheer.

“I would also like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and 2010 with lots of light! Kisses Gisele,” she concluded.
