International supermodel, Gisele Bündchen and her NFL playing husband, Tom Brady, have been named the world’s highest-earning couple according to Forbes magazine.

Reports are that they earned a staggering $76 million between them during the period May 2010-2011, with the Brazilian beauty’s fashion career, endorsements and business deals bringing in a $45 million share of their joint income.

According to Forbes magazine, Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z earned just $4 million less in the same period, with the ‘Run the World (Girls)’ hitmaker bringing in $35 million from her record sales and endorsement deals and her spouse generating $37 million through his contract with Live Nation, a stake in the New Jersey Nets, his 40/40 Club chain and ad firm Translation.

Placed third were Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who earned $50 million after the actor brought in $20 million and his partner – with who he raises six children – earning the additional $30 million.

David and Victoria Beckham were placed fourth in the list with combined earnings of $45 million – though $40 million of the total was earned by the soccer star.

‘Twilight Saga’ co-stars and real-life couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart rounded off the top five, contributing equally to their $40 million fortune.

1. Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady – $76 million
2. Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z – $72 million
