The couple announced the end of their marriage on October 28. Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady have two children together.
In a statement that was shared on his Instagram Story, Brady stated, “In recent days, my wife and I formalized our divorce from one another after 13 years of marriage.
We did so in a civil manner and with appreciation for the time that we were able to spend together before reaching this conclusion.
Our life will always revolve around our lovely and magnificent children because of the good fortune that has been bestowed upon us in that regard.
As their parents, we are going to continue to collaborate in order to make sure that they always get the love and care that they are due.”
Additionally, Bündchen issued a statement confirming her separation from Brady through her Instagram Story, in which she wrote, “It is never simple to make the choice to end a marriage, but Tom and I have reached a point in our lives where we can no longer see eye to eye.
Despite the fact that I am saddened by this development, I am grateful for the years that we spent together and can only hope for Tom’s happiness in the future.
During this delicate time, I respectfully request that our privacy be preserved. Thank you.”
After months of rumors and speculation on the health of their marriage, it was confirmed that Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and former supermodel Gisele Bündchen have filed for divorce in the state of Florida. Brady and Bündchen’s statements come after this news.
On October 28 the website announced that “the settlement has been completely worked out.
They have spent the whole time working on the parameters of the agreement. They came to an agreement over shared custody of the children.”
In 2007, Brady and Bündchen began their relationship, and they wed in 2009.
In the same year that the couple got married, Bündchen gave an interview to Vanity Fair in which she said that she “knew straight [away]” that the athlete was the one for her.
In point of fact, she said that she felt a connection to him from the very first time they met. “[He] smiled, and I was thinking, that is the most gorgeous, charming grin I have ever seen!” said Bündchen.
In addition to Brady’s elder son Jack, who is the child of his previous relationship with Bridget Moynahan, the now-ex-couple has a son, Benjamin, who is 12 years old, and a daughter, Vivian, who is 9 years old.
The announcement follows closely on the heels of Brady’s sudden about-face over his earlier this year declared retirement.
After informing supporters that he was retiring from sports, Tom Brady reversed his mind on March 13 and announced that he will be returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a 23rd season with the team.
The beginning of the NFL season coincided with rumors that Brady and Bündchen were experiencing marital problems, and Bündchen was conspicuously missing from Brady’s games at this time.
According to reports, Bündchen wanted Brady to spend more time with their children, but he chose to pursue a career in the NFL instead.
