Being a mom is wonderful, says Gisele Bundchen

London: Supermodel Gisele Bundchen initially found it difficult to adjust to being a mother but now thinks it is simply wonderful.

The 30-year-old supermodel who gave birth in December 2009 to son Benjamin, her first child with husband Tom Brady, at first found it difficult to be a parent but now she can`t imagine her life without her child, reports

"I love being a mother. It is challenging and it is different when everything is not about you and your life - now there is someone much more important. It takes some adjusting, but it is so, so wonderful," said Bundchen.

"My son is so beautiful, I love him so much. But before you have children, you have got to make sure you have got a great man. You can`t settle for less - someone you love, and someone who has the same beliefs," she said.
