Victoria's Secret Fashion Model Gisele Bündchen and retired NFL Quarterback Tom Brady, who married in February, 2009, announced they were divorcing in October, 2022 after nearly 14 years of marriage. They both shared similar ssentiments to their social media ststating that they were both very grateful for their time together and that their decision to split was amicable.

"Speaking to Vanity Fair for the magazine's April 2023 cover story, Bündchen reflected on the pivotal moment in her life, saying, "It's like a death and a rebirth." "You give everything you got to achieve your dream," she said, having referred to the divorce as "the death of my dream" in the interview. "You give a hundred percent of yourself, and it's heartbreaking when it doesn't end up the way you hoped for, and worked for, but you can only do your part." Bündchen, 42, addressed claims that it was Brady's decision to un-retire from the NFL that led to their divorce as "very hurtful" and "the craziest thing I've ever heard." "Listen, I have always cheered for him, and I would continue forever," she said. "If there's one person I want to be the happiest in the world, it's him, believe me. I want him to achieve and to conquer. I want all his dreams to come true. That's what I want, really, from the bottom of my heart.'' Bündchen said things are "not so black and white" when it comes to why her and Brady's marriage ended." Gisele reiterates the decision to divorce was about more than just Tom Brady's choice to unretire from NFL. Taken from the Good Morning America website.

The former super couple share two children together that they are continuing to co parent successfully. A 10-year-old daughter Vivian and a 13-year-old son Benjamin. Tom Brady also has a 15-year-old son Jack, with his ex Actress Bridget Moynahan. They have said very little about their painful split in the past 6 months, with Gisele having spent much of the time at her residence in Costa Rica, while Tom played out the rest of the NFL season and retired for the final time. Gisele has said Tom Brady’s son Jack became her "bonus child" during their marriage and made her realize how much she really wanted to become a mother and have children of her own.

According to AP News "The seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback’s retirement announcement ended speculation about if and where Brady might want to play next season, opening the door for numerous off-the-field endeavors that could occupy his time. It was announced last May that whenever Brady stepped away from his playing career, he would join Fox Sports as the network’s lead NFL analyst in a 10-year, $375 million contract." It has also been announced that Tom Brady now owns minority stake in WNBA's Las Vegas Aces.

Since the divorce "Bundchen and some of the world's leading models are a part of the new Louis Vuitton campaign. Gisele Bündchen is taking no time off. Following an emotional year, the supermodel is back in front of the camera, this time, working with Louis Vuitton." Taken from the Hola website.
