Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen may have a "strong" marriage, but the duo admits keeping their union solid isn't always an easy task.
"I'm blessed to find this life partner that we all kind of seek at different times in our life," Tom, 38, said in a new interview. "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."

"We all have our challenges that we face in our life," the pro-football player told Access Hollywood on Monday, May 9. "And it's great to have that rock that you can always lean on that can support you in different ways that you need to."
In the wake of recent divorce rumors, Gisele, 35, similarly opened up about her marriage to Tom in a previous interview. "I think we've been through a few tough times together," she revealed. "I think that's when you know who are your friends and who loves you."
Tom and Gisele married in February 2009 and are parents to two children, son Benjamin, 6, and daughter Vivian, 3. The sports star is also a dad to an eight-year-old son, Jack, from his previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.
