(WENN) - Gisele Bundchen fell for Tom Brady as soon as she saw his "sweet eyes".

The Brazilian supermodel and the National Football League (NFL) player began a relationship in late 2006 and married in February 2009.

Gisele made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday to promote her new book Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life, and during the chat, shared that she met her beau on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.

"It's a funny story because for some reason everybody thought they needed to find me a boyfriend, so actually it was my third blind date," she said. "The other two were dinners, which I was stuck there for an hour and a half thinking, 'When can I get out? Where is my food?' The third blind date was actually Tom and I thought, 'That's it, I'm not going on any more blind dates.'"

For her first date with Tom, Gisele decided to go for casual drinks so that she could make a quick exit if it was awkward.

However, as soon as she saw Tom, she knew he was "the one" for her.

"When I saw those kind eyes, I literally fell in love right away," the 38-year-old smiled. "I was like, 'What?' He was just so sweet."

Gisele and Tom are now parents to eight-year-old son Benjamin and daughter Vivian, five. The blonde beauty is also stepmother to the athlete's 11-year-old son John, from his relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.
