Gisele Bundchen On The Spice Girls: 'I'm Sporty Spice'

If Gisele Bundchen were a Spice Girl she'd be Sporty Spice. The 33-year-old answered the question we'd all been itching to ask as she struck a fierce pose for Elle Canada and confessed she "loves" exercise.

The model - who recently became an advocate for "having it all" - told the magazine she still puts her health and fitness regime at the top of her list of priorities.

"The body is a temple," she said. "I enjoy moving. I don't play much volleyball anymore, but I ride horses, surf and play beach tennis."

She added: "I play wherever I am. Kung fu, boxing, yoga, Pilates... It makes me feel alive. If I don't move my body, I don't feel good."

The supermodel mum-of-two certainly showed off all her hard work as she slipped into a jewel green cut-out swimsuit for the summery cover shoot.

However, the question we all really want answered is... If she could be any Spice Girl who would it be? Fortunately for us, Gisele is a girl after our own heart and made sure to bring her point about exercise to a close with a 1990s pop culture reference.

"I've been athletic since I was little," Gisele explained. "I was the captain of my volleyball team. I used to jog - even almost naked in winter. I'm Sporty Spice!"

The model also touched upon her "having it all" ethos as admitted that even she finds juggling her work and family life a little difficult.

"It's a constant balance," she confessed. "Sometimes when I go to bed, I'm happy that I did a good job that day.

"And sometimes, I wish I'd done things differently. Now, it's getting harder for me to travel for my job. I have a son whom I take to school, and I come back quickly to see my baby."
