For a mag that rarely features models on its covers anymore, Gisele Bündchen has scored a major triumph by landing the April 2010 cover of American Vogue. The Brazilian supermodel appears in the annual "Shape" issue to talk about life as a new mum. She also shows off her adorable new son, Benjamin, officially for the first time.

"It was the most amazing experience of my life, feeling him come through my body. And once he was born, I never felt so empowered as looking at him and thinking, Oh, my God, we did it together!" she reveals. "I wanted him to be called River because I wanted something always flowing, immortal. My husband said, 'There's no way we're going to call him River."
