Despite their split, Gisele Bundchen has supported her estranged husband Tom Brady’s decision to retire from the NFL. This is the second time the football player has resigned from his post.
The legendary quarterback announced his retirement in a post on Instagram on Wednesday, February 1. And although he resigned in March 2022 after his first resignation in February of the same year, he said this time it was for good. And what did Bundchen say about that?
The supermodel left a comment on her ex’s post and wished her all the best. Wishing you only wonderful things in this new chapter of your life, she commented with a hand praying emoji.
The Brazilian beauty’s statement of support comes as no surprise. Page Six reported last year that the two got into an epic spat after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers player decided to retire from the NFL.
A source said their marriage ran into trouble after Brady’s return to the game and Bummel was always the one who stayed behind with their two children, Benjamin and Vivian. The insider added that they both agreed that he would officially step down to focus on family, but he later changed his mind.
Unfortunately, they were no longer able to work out their differences, leading to them ending their 13-year marriage in October 2022 after filing and finalizing their divorce. In their respective statements, they confirmed the news and vowed to raise their children together.
But after all that happened, Brady officially announced his retirement after 23 seasons in the NFL. In one clip, he said he’d get straight to the point and revealed he’s stepping down for good.
He knew the trial was a pretty big deal the last time he made the announcement. Waking up that morning, he just wanted to record himself and break the news to his fans first.
It won’t be long winded, Brady continued. He added that he just used his super-emotional retirement essay from last year because he knew he only had one.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion thanked his family, friends, teammates and competitors for their support throughout his career and for making him live his absolute dream. After that, Brady promised he wouldn’t change anything.
For comparison, Brady resigned in February 2022 but returned for one more season to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He’s been called the greatest quarterback of all time, having led the New England Patriots to six Lombardi trophies and the Bucs to one.
