They might look like one of Hollywood's most picture perfect couples, but their marriage hasn't been easy.

Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady have faced their fair share of ups and downs throughout their six year marriage. Most recently, the Deflategate controversy led to speculation that the pair were having trouble at home.

"I think we've been through a few tough times together," the model told Charlie Rose during an interview on "CBS This Morning". "I think that's when you know who are your friends and who loves you. My father always said the quality of your life depends on the quality of your relationships, and I think, no matter how challenging it was, we've always been supportive of one another. I think that's the most important thing you can have in life, you know? A support system and love."

The former Victoria's Secret Angel, who retired from the runway in April, admitted that this wasn't the first time the pair had been through a rough patch. Back in 2006, when Gisele first started dating the football star, the new relationship almost came to a screeching halt when the Brazilian beauty found out Brady's former girlfriend Bridget Moynahan was pregnant.

"It was a challenging thing because here I am, you know, thinking I'm dating this guy. We met, we started dating, everything is great, and then this happens so I felt I didn't know what to do," she admitted. "Do I just run away?"

The couple was able to get through the "challenging time," and eight years later, Gisele, her hubby and their children Benjamin and Vivian have a great relationship.

"My father always says the quality of your life depends on the quality of your relationships," she said. "And I think no matter how challenging it was, we were always being supportive of one another. And you know, that's the most important thing you can have in your life ... a support system and love."
