Supermodel Gisele Bundchen was left stunned when a private email to her closest friends and family members about this weekend's Super Bowl was printed in the New York Post.
In the correspondence, Bundchen asked her inner circle to pray for her quarterback husband Tom Brady and send his New England Patriots "positive energy" so they could beat the New York Giants.
She wrote, "My sweet friends and family. This Sunday will be a really important day in my husband's life.
"He and his team worked so hard to get to this point and now they need us more than ever to send them positive energy so they can fulfill their dream of winning this super bowl. So 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."
Reporters contacted Bundchen on Wednesday, who said, "I am surprised that you received this email; it was a private note only sent to close friends and family."
The email, along with the Brazilian beauty's response, was published on Thursday.
