ATVs, four wheels, and supermodels, oh my!
Gisele Bündchen is back at it again. The supermodel mom can't seem to navigate away from controversy and this time she steered herself right into the crosshairs by driving a four-wheel ATV with one hand while cradling 13-month-old daughter Vivian in the other.
The 33-year-old stunner was photographed driving a red, all-terrain vehicle in Costa Rica on Monday sans helmet. Little Vivian, who appears to only be secured by a baby carrier and her mother's arm, also does not have a helmet on, let alone a safety seat.
This isn't the first time the Brazilian babe has taken her daughter for a ride on a quad. In March 2013, she and her NFL hubby Tom Brady were photographed transporting their daughter in the same fashion in the tropical nation. In Costa Rica, drivers must be at least 16 years old to operate an ATV and have a valid driver's license.
While we doubt that Gisele was going all Evel Knievel, balancing a baby on her lap is sure to draw criticism (just ask Britney Spears). The bikini babe, who has yet to release an official statement over the incident, was in Costa Rica to shoot retailer a summer ad campaign for H&M.
Lately the millionaire mom can't seem to catch a break. In December, the she came under fire after she posted a photo on Instagram where she was getting her hair, nails and makeup done while she breastfed her daughter. Many mothers felt that the snap was "obnoxious" and called her "the ultimate smug mom." Others like actress Ricki Lake applauded her for bringing breastfeeding to the public's attention. "Kudos to Gisele for starting the conversation," Lake told Yahoo Shine.
While breastfeeding and bombing along on an ATV are two very different things, one thing is for sure, the former Victoria's Secret Angel still knows how to catch everyone's attention.
So far the reactions on Twitter are divided over whether this is a "big deal." What do you think?
