Patricia Bundchen: Gisele’s Pretty Twin

As if one beauty was not enough, the Bundchen family boasts of another: meet Patricia Bundchen, supermodel Gisele Bundchen’s twin, as Gisele says, “the hotter one”.

Patricia is the fraternal twin of model Gisele Bundchen and was born five minutes after the Brazilian supermodel. She is not known for her fashion career but for her great management of Gisele’s career. She is good at her job too: Gisele is the highest paid supermodel at $35 million in 2008.

Born on July 20, 1980 in Tres de Maio, Brazil, Patricia grew up in Horizontina, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil in a Roman Catholic household. She is of both Brazilian and German descent. She chose to stay away from limelight and the media has no reports of her being publicly linked to anyone. But if her modeling career gets successful that is likely to be changed. The media has followed Gisele’s high profile relationships with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Brady, whom she married recently and is not likely to leave the younger Bundchen alone.

Patricia and her famous sister were born to Vania Nonnenmacher, a bank clerk and Valdir Bundchen, a university teacher. They grew up in a large family of six sisters: Raquel Bundchen, Graziela Bundchen, Gabriela Bundchen, Rafaela Bundchen, Patricia and Gisele.

Gisele has admitted that she owes her successful modeling career to her sister’s management skills. As for people who wonder why the pretty Bundchen sibling did not venture into modeling as well, Patricia did make a debut into fashion modeling but soon chose to give it up and be her own boss rather than act on the whims of advertisers. She is a very well respected model manager.
