Gisele Bunchen and husband Patriots quarterback Tom Brady have announced the birth of their second child together, a baby girl on Wednesday evening.

Bunchen and Brady have an older son, 2-year-old Benjamin, however, this is the third child for Brady who has a 5-year-old son, John, with actress Bridget Moyhanhan.

The couple named their daughter Vivian, who arrived just days before her brother John’s birthday.

Bundchen has come under fire for her parenting credo, which promotes home birthing and extended breastfeeding. Bunchen told Harper’s Bazaar in 2010 that breastfeeding should be a worldwide law. Recently Bundchen was criticized when a writer on her blog called hospital birth “violent”.

Bundchen reportedly gave birth to her first child at home, using the water birthing method. No word how she delivered baby Vivian.
