Even the nation’s top quarterback fumbles in life at times. Gisele Bündchen, one part of one of the best-known celeb couples in the country, revealed several surprising new facts about her husband, Tom Brady, during an appearance on the Ellen show Wednesday, December 12.

While Brady has maintained a long career with the New England Patriots, along with his storied marriage and family dynamics, he has his flaws too—and like the masses, Ellen DeGeneres was curious.

“Is there anything that he’s not good at?” she asked the supermodel on her show. “He just seems like he’s good at everything.”

“He’s terrible at… he’s not a multi-tasker,” Bündchen replied. “He can just do one thing at a time.”

However, she shared something her husband is excellent at doing. “He’s an amazing waffle maker,” she noted. “He actually makes the batter and jokes with me, ‘I can’t give you the secret, otherwise you won’t need me anymore.’”

She elaborated, “He has some secret recipe. I’m sure there’s some packaged thing involved, but I have never seen him making it because he literally won’t let me see it. He says, ‘Then you won’t need me.’ I say, ‘Okay! That’s fine.’ It tastes delicious. I can’t stop eating them.”

The couple married in a low-key ceremony in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica, in April 2009. “I wore waterproof mascara since I knew I was going to cry — because I always cry! — and it wouldn’t have been a pretty sight having raccoon eyes at my own wedding,” she wrote in her memoir. “The ceremony was brief, and the last words anyone heard were: For the pillars of the temple stand apart / And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.”

The couple first met on a date arranged by mutual friends.
