MINNEAPOLIS — Ever a supportive spouse, Gisele Bündchen has been by her husband Tom Brady’s side for every Super Bowl since the pair tied the knot in 2009.
Considering 40-year-old Brady has been to eight Super Bowls — four since their wedding — she’s no stranger to watching her beau play his heart out. But this year, it looks like the supermodel needed some liquid courage to get her through his team’s sound defeat.
The Brazillian bombshell and mom-of-two was caught on camera watching the proceedings with her 5-year-old daughter Vivian in her lap. Bündchen, 37, drank a glass of wine as the Philadelphia Eagles won against the New England Patriots 41-33.
The model mom comforted her husband after the game and shared a sweet message on her Instagram page — a major departure from her frustrated response after the Patriots lost to the New York Giants in the 2012 Super Bowl, where she snapped at a heckler who was critical of Brady’s receivers.
“Congratulations Eagles for winning the Super bowl, what a game that was!” she wrote. “Congratulations Patriots for giving your best and to my love, we are incredibly proud of you because we are able to see ever day all the commitment, sacrifice and hard work that you have devoted to become the best in what you do. We love you!”
Congratulations Eagles for winning the Super bowl, what a game that was! Congratulations Patriots for giving your best and to my love, we are incredibly proud of you because we are able to see ever day all the commitment, sacrifice and hard work that you have devoted to become the best in what you do. We love you! ❤️ Parabéns Eagles por ganhar o Super bowl, que jogo! Parabéns Patriots por dar o seu melhor. Parabéns meu amor, estamos incrivelmente orgulhosos de você porque vemos todos os dias o compromisso, o sacrifício e o trabalho árduo que você dedicou para se tornar o melhor no que você faz. Nós te amamos!
USA Today reported that Bündchen also consoled her children, 5-year-old daughter Vivian and 8-year-old son Benjamin, while 10-year-old son John stood nearby.
“They (the Eagles) haven’t won in a million years,’’ Bündchen said, according to the report. Vivian, still upset, said, “The Eagles won the Super Bowl.’’
“Just this time. Daddy won five times,” Bündchen said. “They never won before.
“Their whole life, they never won a Super Bowl. You have to let someone else win sometimes.”
“Sometimes you have to let other people win ... we have to share. Sharing is caring.’’
The report of the comments weren’t well-received by some, who thought Bündchen’s use of “let” implied the Eagles didn’t earn their Super Bowl title.

Brady admitted the loss was a disappointment. Shortly after the game, he told reporters he would be back next season.

LOS ANGELES — Soon-to-be mom of two Chrissy Teigen stopped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to dish about her pregnancy Monday. The model and cookbook author revealed that she and singer John Legend’s second bundle of joy is due in June.
“I’m having a baby boy in the spring,” she told DeGeneres, before jokingly whispering, “I’ll tell you: it’s June.” Teigen and Legend announced her pregnancy in November with an Instagram video showing their daughter Luna pointing to the baby in her mother’s belly. Amid speculation of the baby’s gender, the 32-year-old “Lip Sync Battle” host confirmed she is having a boy with a photo from the Grammy Awards red carpet.
While excited for her second child, Teigen shared that one thing she hadn’t quite figured out yet was what to name him.
“It’s just, boy names are really tough,” she said. “I don’t even think he’ll have a middle name, because we can’t even think of a first name.”
When asked how she and Legend came up with Luna, Teigen revealed it was linked to a happy childhood memory.
“Well, there was a blood moon happening. It was like a very beautiful night. Really big, vivid red moon — just gorgeous. And I have this love for space, and I think about space camp all the time and my days at space camp as a youngster, so I just thought ‘Luna’ was perfect.”
Like a true comedian, DeGeneres joked that the second baby should follow the trend, saying, “What about Lunar?”
Teigen replied with a laugh, “Lunar? I like it,” while Ellen followed up, “What about Urban Legend?”
“I do like that,” Teigen said.
The “Cravings” author went on to tell Ellen that her husband’s “ego” was all that was standing in the way of them choosing a far more common name.
“Everyone’s like, ‘Why don’t you do the JJ thing — John Jr. — but John and his ego. He was like, ‘I don’t want him to feel like he has to live up to that.'”
“What a jerk!” Teigen joked. “Oh, sorry. Heaven forbid he do what you do.”
Watch a clip of Teigen’s appearance on “Ellen” below.

— Actor Sylvester Stallone is the victim of a death hoax.
A rumor claiming that the 71-year-old actor had passed away recently surfaced on social media — and he was not happy about it.
Stallone took to Twitter to express his annoyance.
“Please ignore the stupidity,” the “Rocky” star tweeted Monday. “Alive and well and happy and healthy … Still punching!”

Stallone’s younger brother, Frank, also took to the social media platform to inform everyone of the death hoax. And he wasn’t happy either.
“Rumors that my brother is dead are false,” he wrote. “What kind of sick demented cruel mind thinks of things like this to post? People like this are mentally deranged and don’t deserve a place in society.”

LOS ANGELES — Fergie is responding to critics of her sultry, jazzy rendition of the national anthem at the NBA All-Star Game. The singer issued a statement to TMZ, saying her version at Sunday night’s game in Los Angeles “didn't strike the intended tone.”
“I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA,” the statement said. “I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn't strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my best.”
Wearing an off-the-shoulder dress, Fergie sang the national anthem with a number of ad-libs and some lengthy notes. At one point, Golden State Warriors player Draymond Green could be seen stifling a laugh, and so could late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel.
One person who had some words of support for Fergie was Mariah Carey, who told TMZ cameras the singer needn’t listen to negativity.
“Darling, nobody needs to listen to that,” she said.
Fergie’s national anthem performance can be watched below.

— It’s been “a beautiful day in this neighborhood” for 50 years.
Feb. 19, 1968, was the day that PBS aired the first episode of “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood,” and the lessons that Fred Rogers taught still resonate today. A re-imagined tales of “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,” several televised tributes and even a feature-length movie remind us of the legacy of Mr. Rogers.
According to his official biography from the foundation that carries on his mission of education, Rogers was born in 1928 in the small town of Latrobe, Penn., east of Pittsburgh. After getting a degree in music composition, he was hired by NBC in New York as an assistant producer and eventually a floor director for some of the network’s programming in the ’50s.
History was made in 1953 when WQED in Pittsburgh asked Rogers to come up with their first schedule. He produced a show called “The Children’s Corner,” where he introduced characters such as Daniel Striped Tiger, X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat.
Those characters have found new life on “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,” where children now learn those positive messages not in puppet form, but from cartoons.
Fred Rogers’ belief in kindness led him to seminary, where he was ordained as a Presbyterian minister. Instead of moving toward a traditional religious calling, his charge was “to continue his work with children and families through the mass media.”
In 1963, he was offered the opportunity to start a show in Canada called “Misterogers.” Three years later, he went back to Pittsburgh and created a new show called “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” which went national 50 years ago, on what would become PBS.
Fred Rogers died on Feb. 27, 2003, in Pittsburgh and was survived by his wife, Joanne, and their two sons and three grandsons.
Rogers’ message of love and kindness still resonates today. When there is a national tragedy, memes or video clips of Fred Rogers telling children and adults alike to “look for the helpers” gives those who need it a moment of reassurance that everything will be OK.

“Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” also helped launch the careers of some current stars.
Actress Ming-Na Wen, known for her role as Agent Melinda May on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and as the voice of Disney’s Mulan, appeared on the show.
Rogers also introduced kids to various genres of music, thanks to guest stars who dropped by, including Wynton Marsalis, Yo-Yo Ma and Tony Bennett, Entertainment Weekly reported.
Michael Keaton, who went by his original name at the time, Michael Douglas, had one of his first jobs working as a stagehand on the show. He helped operate the iconic trolley, CBS News reported. He was also one of the “Flying Zookeeni Brothers,” Parade reported.
Keaton will host a one-night-only PBS special that pays tribute to Rogers on March 6. “Mister Rogers, It’s You I Like” will feature Keaton and cast regulars, including Joe Negri, who portrayed Handyman Negri, and David Newell, who portrayed Mr. McFeely.
Rogers will also be remembered by guests Judd Apatow, Whoopi Goldberg and Sarah Silverman, according to PBS.
But that’s not the only remembrance planned for Mr. Rogers. Starting on Feb. 26, PBS Kids will run a weeklong tribute to Rogers, PBS announced.
