Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen says she gave birth to her son in a bathtub and that it didn't hurt a bit.

The wife of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady tells Globo TV she wanted to be aware and calm during birth. So she decided to have her boy, Benjamin, at home on Dec. 8.

The model says in the interview aired Sunday she "didn't want to be drugged up" when she gave birth.

To prepare, she says she did a lot of yoga and meditation.

Bundchen says the boy didn't cry after being born and rested in her lap for a long time.

Brady and Bundchen were married in February.

Benjamin is Bundchen's first child. Brady also has a 2-year-old son, Jack, with actress Bridget Moynahan.
