means putting themselves first. Reporter: Gisele is the highest paid model eight years running. Forbes estimating she makes $128,000 a day. Her physique didn't budge with two pregnancies. That's why moms react to her advice with clenched teeth. Gisele bunchen has women buzzing yet again after dispensing her latest dose of controversial mommy advice. Telling the London Sunday times, being a mom is the most important job. Saying it's important to take care of yourself. You know how they say on the plane, you have to put the oxygen mask on first and then on your child. I think it's the same. It's a sentiment experts don't quibble with. It's really important for every mother to nourish ourselves in order to give the most to our children. Reporter: Bunchen does admit putting the me in mommy can make you feel guilty. But if I'm feeling fulfilled, then I'm a much more patient, loving, understanding mother and wife. Many readers agree. One writing, it's the same with a lot of things in life, you'll do better if you're happy and satisfied. But others say bunchen is out of touch. One mom commenting, I'd like to see her put herself first without the nannies, chefs, housekeepers. After all, we can't all be the world's highest paid supermodel and be married to Tom Brady. Taking time for yourself is something totally different for Gisele than to me or the average mom out there. Reporter: Bunchen, who plays a glamorous mom in her latest Chanel ad made waves in the past. She instagramed this picture of herself nursing her then 12-month-old daughter. What would I do without this beauty squad with the 15 hours flying and 3 hours of sleep. She told Harper's bizarre, there should be a worldwide law that mothers should breast-feed for six months. But the bombshell's latest bombshell is getting a pass. In the past, she has been controversial. But this time, she's saying something moms relate to. Reporter: They don't disagree, but it's like a grade a student telling the struggling kids I didn't have to study. It's hard for us to hear it. But the experts, they agree with what Gisele said. Reporter: Absolutely. And moms sacrifice everything. Put the kids before themselves, parts of their careers, carry around baby weight. But I digress. And the truth is, she's got that body and career and husband. And people around here say she's totally nice and down to Earth. She was here not too long ago. And she was kind to everyone. She loves her children. A pimple, anything. Make us feel better. Upstairs to Lara now.
