Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s Most Romantic Moments Ahead of Their 2022 Split

Turning heads! Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen were total relationship goals during their 13-year marriage — and they weren’t afraid to show off their love publicly. The pair, who wed in February 2009, shared some incredibly romantic moments together over the years, including steamy selfies and romantic vacation snaps. After tying the knot, the twosome expanded their family by welcoming son Benjamin and daughter Vivian in December 2009 and December 2012, respectively. Brady, for his part, is also the father of son Jack, whom he welcomed with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan in August 2007. During Brady’s time as the New England Patriots quarterback — he was on the team for 20 years before his 2020 exit — Bündchen was right by his side. Whether they were sharing a kiss on the field or supporting one another outside the football stadium, the duo always seemed to make time for one another. “I’m blessed to have this life partner that we all kind of seek at different times in our life,” the “Let’s Go” podcast host told Access Hollywood of the Brazil native in May 2016. “We found each other at the right time. We’ve been through a lot of ups and downs together and in so many ways, that’s kind of built our relationship so strong.” When Brady retired from the NFL in February 2021, following his seventh Super Bowl win — the first with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — the supermodel was again by his side. “I’m so proud of you, and of everything you have had to overcome physically and emotionally over the years. I am in awe of your dedication, and of everything you have achieved,” Bündchen wrote via Instagram following her husband’s announcement. “You love what you do, and you leave behind a legacy that is a beautiful example for future generations.” One month later, however, the former University of Michigan quarterback surprised fans when he announced he was returning to the sport. The decision appeared to cause tension between Brady and Bündchen with the athlete hinting in August 2022 that there was trouble in paradise. “It’s all personal, you know. Everyone’s got different situations that they’re dealing with,” Brady told reporters at the time while explaining his absence from training camp. “We all have really unique challenges to our life. I’m 45 years old, man. There’s a lot of s–t going on, so just gotta figure out life the best you can. It’s a continuous process.” In October 2022, a source exclusively told Us that the Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life author gave her husband an ultimatum about his future in football. “Gisele told Tom either he leaves football to spend time with the family or she is gone for good,” the insider told Us. “She doesn’t want him to continue to get injured and not be able to enjoy life in the future. She is doing it for her family.” Later that month, the pair confirmed that they had already split after 13 years. Brady and Bündchen revealed in an October 28, 2022, statement that they “finalized our divorce” following months of speculation.
