The Internet Caught Gisele Bündchen Telling Comment on Tom Brady's Retirement Post
Tom Brady is retiring from football again—this time "for good."
The NFL star made the announcement this morning via Instagram. He started off a slideshow with an emotional video of himself revealing his decision and thanking everyone who has been there for him and helped him on his journey.
"Good morning, guys, I'll get to the point right away. I'm retiring, for good," he says in the clip. "I know the process was a pretty big deal last time, so when I woke up this morning, I figured I'd just press record and let you guys know first. So it won't be long-winded. I think you only get one super-emotional retirement essay, and I used mine up last year."
Over the course of his 23-season career, Brady has won seven Super Bowls, five Super Bowl MVP awards, and three league MVP honors.
Holding back tears, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback—formerly with the New England Patriots—continues, "So really, thank you, guys, so much to every single one of you for supporting me. My family, my friends, my teammates, my competitors, I could go on forever, there's too many. Thank you, guys, for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn't change a thing. Love you all."
Also in the post, Brady included photos of his kids, parents, friends, and ex-wife, Gisele Bündchen, who liked the post and even left a supportive comment. "Wishing you only wonderful things in this new chapter of your life 🙏🏼," she wrote.
The pair, who share two children, divorced last October after nearly 16 years together. Though they did not name a reason, it was speculated that Brady's infamous 2022 un-retirement from football had something to do with it, as the supermodel had previously suggested her discomfort with their situation.
"Obviously, I have my concerns—this is a very violent sport, and I have my children and I would like him to be more present," Bündchen said in ELLE's October 2022 issue.
At the same time, she said she cares deeply about his happiness and supports him in doing what ultimately makes him the most fulfilled.
"I feel that everybody has to make a decision that works for [them]," she added. "He needs to follow his joy, too."
