Gisele Bundchen Takes Her Baby on an ATV Ride -- Is She Nuts?

OMG 13

Gisele BundchenRemember that time Gisele Bundchen rode an ATV on the beach in Costa Rica while wearing her 3-month-old baby, Vivian?

Yes, that actually happened. I swear. Think I'm making it up? Then take a look at this photo of Gisele riding an ATV with her baby strapped to her body -- and giving the camera a big ol' thumbs up.

Um, are you believing this?

Yes, it's nice that Gisele is wearing her baby and keeping her close and snuggled and all that good stuff. And yes, her body looks ridiculously amazing in a bikini just three months postpartum, even for a supermodel. But that doesn't change the fact that she was riding on an ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE while wearing HER BABY.

I don't care how slow that thing was going -- I still just can't seem to understand what on earth would possess someone to hop onto an ATV and ride around with a baby on board. It's stupid, careless, and irresponsible, plain and simple.

What if Tom had to suddenly hit the brakes and Gisele and the baby went flying off that thing? Or what if he took a sharp turn and it slid on wet sand (could happen), tipped over, and fell on top of them? 

No matter how you look at it, the risks of taking a tiny baby for a ride on an ATV greatly outweigh any sort of recreational enjoyment. (I wouldn't take my baby on one. I'm just sayin'.)

And don't even try to tell me that Gisele deserves the benefit of the doubt or that I should cut her a little slack. If the mom in question were anyone other than Gisele -- maybe, maybe I would.

But considering she's pretty much the poster child for having a strong opinion on how moms should and should not parent their kids, there's no way she's getting a hall pass on this one.

Let me get this straight -- Gisele thinks that breastfeeding should be a law, but she's ok with cruising around on an ATV with no helmets in sight, even for her baby? Yeah, something doesn't quite add up here.

(Bottle feeding = bad. Reckless activities = good. Got it.)

But since she is Gisele Bundchen, I'm sure she has a perfectly reasonable explanation for why she didn't think taking little Vivian on an ATV posed any threat. 

Maybe her body is really made of armor, which shielded the baby from any potential injury. (Wouldn't surprise me.)

Would you ever take your baby on an ATV?

Funny how she blasts women for their eating and birthing choices, yet does a bonehead move like this!

Honestly Gisele is a bone head. Everything that comes out of her mouth is pure crap. She also has made wonderful comments such as "sunscreen is poison" I will judge her for being reckless, and I will judge her for using such a horrible baby carrier, she basically asked for it.

Giselle is just so Great! (sarcasm)


I don't pay much attention to what this woman says.  She is a supermodel and not a Scientist.  She is not important in my life.

I have no issue with her comments or her riding on the ATV. But whatever, if bashing her makes people feel better about themselves, I'm sure she really cares as she retires to her supermodel life, in her beautiful home, with her gorgeous husband. Lol

the real fact is that it didn't happen anything bad..so why you keep worrying and saying bullshit? people who judge other people are very bad not a gisele bundchen whoo took her 3 months old baby on an ATV ride...they went so slow not fastest as they can..what is the problem ? thing before writing these silly words.

Oh wow. Come up to one of my in law's camping trips. Wait. Don't. They won't tolerate it. They've had babies on the backs of theirs, me and my sister in law, both a few days post partum, grandma, dogs, and other things. Just chill. Because it was them AND a baby, I doubt they went fast. Stop pointing at how others should live their lives.

Two things here; I still can't for the life of me figure out how she's a supermodel nor understand how Brady chose her over Moynahan. Hmmmm.

Giselle is a dumb big mouth. How about an international law that all parents that stupidly put their kids in unsafe situations should go to jail instead of dictating that there ought to be an international lae bout breast feeding?

So what? "Risking their lives"? Oh come on... I highly doubt that putting around on a four wheeler is more dangerous that things you've done with your children and would never admit due to your self proclaimed perfection...
