The Brazilian repeated her message in her native Portuguese.

Gisele, who was only visible from the shoulders up, looked as immaculate as ever with her honey blonde hair cascading onto her shoulders in gentle waves, framing her perfectly made up face.

Her generous lips were painted pink – all the better for kissing.

With her hair tucked behind one ear, she showed off a large silver earring. She also wore a black thong around her neck.

Giselle started her birthday celebrations five days earlier when photographer Nino Munoz surprised her with a chocolate cake on Friday. 

The beauty captured the moment in an Instagram snap she captioned: ‘Early birthday celebration at work. Thank you sweet @ninomunoz #work #friends #earlybirthdaycake,’ repeating the message in her native Portuguese.

Tom and Gisele, who tied in the knot in 2009, also share son Benjamin, six, while Tom has an older boy, John, 8, from a previous relationship.

This show of love comes after a rocky 2015 where Gisele even admitted in an interview they had their struggles. The blame is thought to be on the pressure he faced during Deflategate.
