A private email written by Gisele Bundchen asking friends to pray for her hubby --Patriots quarterback Tom Brady -- on Super Bowl Sunday has gone public, after being printed on the front page of the New York Post on Thursday.
In the email, the Brazilian supermodel writes:
"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.
The Post asked Bundchen about the email, to which she responded: "I am surprised that you received this e-mail; it was a private note only sent to close friends and family."
Super Bowl XLVI pits the New England Patriots -- lead by Brady, a three-time Super Bowl champion-- against the New York Giants in a heated rematch from four years ago in one of the most memorable Super Bowls ever.
The game starts at 6:29 PM EST and will be televised nationally on NBC.
The Patriots are favored by 3 points.
