Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen have officially filed for divorce, as of Friday 28 October 2022. The pair filed similar messages on Instagram saying that “co-parenting” would be their priority. In total the couple were married for 13 years; they have two children together, Benjamin (12) and Vivian (9). They also parent Brady’s first child Jack (15), who he had with former girlfriend Bridget Moynahan.

In breaking the news to his followers, Brady said that the couple “arrived at this decision [to divorce] amicably and with gratitude for the time we spent together.” Brady said the priority for the couple is their children and that they plan to “work together as parents” to “ensure they receive the love and attention they deserve.”

Bündchen was less than happy at decision to unretire

After Tom Brady decided to retire from the NFL, his wife, Gisele Bundchen was thrilled. She has publicly said that she wants her husband to spend more time with their children and that she was looking forward to being able to focus on her own projects. She has been Brady’s biggest fan, showing up to his games, taking care of the children, and always publicly supporting and defending him.

Unfortunately for Bundchen, Brady decided to un-retire just 40 days later. I guess no one told him Lent begins in the spring and that this was actually supposed to be a permanent decision. Bundchen, understandably, was not thrilled about this decision.

Brady and Bundchen have been married for 13 years and have three children, two of their own, and one from Brady’s previous relationship. Jack, who is Brady’s son with actress Bridget Moynahan, is 15 years old, and the two he shares with Gisele are Benjamin, who is 12 years old, and Vivian, who is nine years old.

Timeline of Brady and Bundchen’s relationship

The couple met during a blind date in 2006. According to Brady, they hit it off immediately. The relationship started to get serious, but was quickly complicated when Brady found out his ex girlfriend, Bridget Moynahan, was pregnant. Brady said it forced he and Gisele into something very serious at an early stage in their relationship and they learned a lot about each other during the difficult process. Moynahan gave birth to their son, John “Jack” Edward Thomas Moynahan in 2007. Brady and Bundchen stayed together through it all and Gisele helped raise Jack and loves him as her own child.

In January 2009, Brady and Bundchen got engaged and two months later, they were married.

In December of that same year, they had their first child together, a son named Benjamin. Three years later, in December 2012, they had their second child together, a daughter named Vivian.

After several years of mushy Instagram posts, Gisele showing up to support Brady at his football games, and 13 years of marriage, it seems the couple has stopped fighting to hold onto something that is no longer working. Brady had assured the public that he and his wife were doing fine, but Bundchen had other things to say. In September 2022, after the NFL season began with her husband still quarterbacking for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Gisele spoke to Elle magazine. In the interview, she made sure to clarify that she was not some “desperate” woman who just wanted her husband to retire. She said that his happiness is also important to her, but that she wants him to be “more present” for their children.

“I’ve done my part, which is [to] be there for [Tom],” said Bundchen. “I moved to Boston, and I focused on creating a cocoon and a loving environment for my children to grow up in and to be there supporting him and his dreams. … At this point in my life, I feel like I’ve done a good job on that.”

Gisele did not attend Brady’s first two home games and now, there are reports that the couple has hired lawyers to divide their multi-million dollar fortune and begin the divorce process.
