NEW YORK (WFAN) — Talk about super sappy.
Gisele Bundchen, the doting supermodel wife of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, wants her Bradiacs to pray for a New England win in Super Bowl XLVI.
“Tommy really needs our prayer, our support and love at this time,” Gisele said in an email to friends and family, according to the New York Post.
She added: “I kindly ask all of you to join me on this positive chain and pray for him, so he can feel confident, healthy and strong. Envision him happy and fulfilled experiencing with his team a victory this (Sunday).”

Gisele, in a separate correspondence reported by the Post, said she was “surprised” the paper got their hands on the private email.
Brady was asked about the email on Thursday morning in Indianapolis.
“Honestly, I don’t know what happened. I don’t know anything about that,” Brady told reporters. “I don’t even know if she sent an email to anybody, so I don’t know. I don’t know what it is.”
Earlier this week, Brady said his wife did offer some advice for the game against the Giants.
“Throw the ball quickly,” Brady said of his wife’s football tips. “She doesn’t like it when I get hit very often.”
It seems like “Tommy” is aware he’ll have a tough go of it Sunday in Indianapolis against the Giants’ fearsome pass rush.
Brady was sacked five times in Super Bowl XLII, losing to New York four years ago. This week, Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said Brady can expect more of the same.
“I’ve seen it game after game,” Brady told reporters Wednesday. “They can get to the quarterback. They can hit the quarterback. They can force the quarterback into some bad decisions and some bad throws. We’re going to try and eliminate those. We really can’t afford too many of those on Sunday.
“We had too many of those the last time we played them, and we’re not going to be able to win the game making mistakes.”
The Giants were tied for third overall in the NFL this season with 48 sacks. The unit sacked Brady twice in their 24-20 win over the Patriots on Nov. 6.
