LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - FEBRUARY 21: (L-R) Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen attends the 2019 Hollywood For Science Gala at Private Residence on February 21, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.
Gossip site TMZ reports that Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen have reached a settlement ending their marriage. Divorce documents will be formally filed today. They report that lawyers for both have been working with a mediator to come to an agreement on custody and property settlement.
The gossip site also reports that the divorce document will be short. They additionally claim to have knowledge that the terms of the settlement will remain confidential and sealed.
The news comes the morning after Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost another game. On last night’s Thursday Night Football, they were defeated by the Baltimore Ravens, 27-22. Tampa Bay is just 3-5 this season. Yahoo Sports notes that this is Brady’s first three-game losing streak since 2002.
Here’s a simplified Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady timeline: earlier this year, Brady announced his retirement from football. A few weeks later, he changed his mind. In September, Bundchen expressed concerns about his return to the game. Soon after that, news broke that the couple were living separately.
Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady Through The Years
Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady have been married since 2009 and share two children together: Vivian Lake Brady and Benjamin Rein. After meeting through friends in 2006, Brady and Bündchen started seeing each other that December.
“I knew right way — the first time I saw him,” she recalled to Vanity Fair in 2009 about Brady. “We met through a friend. The moment I saw him, he smiled and I was like, ‘That is the most beautiful, charismatic smile I’ve ever seen!’ We sat and talked for three hours. I had to go home for Christmas, but I didn’t want to leave. You know that feeling of, like, you can’t get enough? From the first day we met, we’ve never spent one day without speaking to each other.”
For the picture-perfect couple, it wasn’t always rainbows and butterflies. They had their fair share of trouble, starting with Brady’s ex, Bridget Moynahan being pregnant with his child in February 2007.
The couple got engaged in January of 2009 and wed one month later in Santa Monica, California. They then threw another wedding two months later in Costa Rica. Nine months later, the couple welcomed their first child together, Benjamin. Three years later daughter Vivian was born.
Over a decade later and the couple is still in love and stronger than ever. See Brady and Bündchen’s relationship grow through the years below:
