Take one supermodel. Add one Super Bowl hero. What do you have? A whole lotta money.

Here’s another accolade for Gisele Bündchen: She and football player husband Tom Brady have been named the world's highest-paid celebrity couple by Forbes.

The photogenic pair brought in a combined annual income of $76 million from May 2010 to May 2011, thanks to Brady’s four-year, $72 million contract extension with the New England Patriots and Bündchen’s—who, with $45 million in earnings, is the world’s highest-paid supermodel, and on target to becoming a billionaire—modeling contracts and business deals like her GB Intimates lingerie line.

With $72 million in the bank, Beyoncé and Jay-Z took the #2 spot, while Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt came third thanks to a combined $50 million in income.

Fashion also helped propel Victoria Beckham and husband David to fourth-place, with $45 million in earnings. And last but not least, real-life Twilight couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart sunk their teeth into fifth place with $40 million.
