Gisele Bündchen's kids are adjusting to their new normal.

In a new sit-down interview with Robin Roberts, 63, the supermodel mom, 43, opened up about co-parenting her son Benjamin, 14, and daughter Vivian, 11, with ex-husband Tom Brady, 46, in the wake of their divorce. Bündchen is also stepmom to Brady's son Jack, 16, whom he shares with ex Bridget Moynahan, 52.

“I think there are easier days than others but I think it’s amazing that the kids…they’re super smart children. They know what they can get away with," Bündchen says of co-parenting with Brady.

"So I think it’s natural that [our houses] have different rules and then kids just adapt. And they’re going to try to do what they want. And I can only control what I do. And I think for me, now is really about the balance."

"Tom has to have time with them, and I have time with them, which I think is amazing because they get to really experience more enrichment for their lives," the proud mom continues. "Two different worlds and they get to learn from two different worlds and that’s wonderful for them I think. They're so big."

In the same interview, Bündchen commented on being a stepmom to Jack.

"I got to experience how it is to feel, to be a mom before I was even a mom. To be a bonus mom," she shares. "So I got to experience how my heart could feel that love and just expand in ways I never thought were possible."

Later in her conversation with Roberts, the cookbook author remembers meeting her stepson when he was very little.

"But I mean, I met him when he was 3 months old, you know? I raised him like. I love him," Bündchen adds.

In an interview with Harper's Bazaar in January, the supermodel spoke about raising her two kids amid changes to their lives due to her divorce. Acknowledging that her kids are growing up in a different world than she did, Bündchen said that she's trying to give them some important tools before they go off on their own.

"'The way you make your room, the way you organize and make your bed is the way you're going to do your life,'" she remembered telling her kids. "'If you're not learning here and now, then when and with who?'"

"Sometimes I get pushback, especially because now they're in two different homes and there are two different ways. But I feel like I owe it to my kids, because of what my mom taught me."

Bündchen's full interview is streaming now on ABC News Studios’ Impact x Nightline on Hulu.
