The mother of Gisele Bundchen's stepson is fuming that the Brazilian supermodel claimed the boy was "100 percent" hers, according to a report.
"If Gisele loved Bridget's child like he was '100 percent her own,' then she would not talk about him in the press," a friend told the New York Post. "Discretion and respect are not either of Gisele or Tom's virtues, as was evidenced even when the child was still unborn and they publicly flaunted their relationship without any discretion whatsoever."

Bundchen and Brady who were married in a small ceremony last month began dating before the "Lord of War" actress knew she was pregnant.
Gisele told Vanity Fair that she felt the toddler was hers since "the first day" though she has never met the boy's biological mother.
"It's not like because somebody else delivered him, that's not my child," she dished to the mag. "I want him to have a great relationship with his mom, because that's important, but I love him the same way as if he were mine. I already feel like he's my son, from the first day."
Friends of the actress bristled at Bundchen's comments and accused the 28-year-old beauty of using the young boy as a "publicity prop."
"If Tom is such a great father as everyone likes to say, then you would think that he'd respect the privacy of his young child and would ask his wife not to use his son as a publicity prop and a subject of public discussion," the friend said. "Is she so desperate for attention that she can't find anything more productive to talk about other than Bridget's child?"
