Tom Brady and ex Gisele Bündchen are loving coparents, despite finalizing their divorce in October 2022. The NFL star and the Brazilian model have their three kids, Jack, Ben and Vivian, and their cutest photos are proof of their unbreakable bond.
From cheering on Tom during the Super Bowl to enjoying a family vacation at their home in Costa Rica, the iconic quarterback and the beloved businesswoman have made amazing memories with their children. Before their split, the former couple worked hard to “create the perfect life together,” an insider once told Closer Weekly.
The famous footballer‘s romance with Gisele began in 2006 after the two were introduced by a mutual friend. At the time they met, Gisele said she “knew right away” that Tom was about to make a big impact on her life.
“The moment I saw him, he smiled, and I was like, ‘That is the most beautiful, charismatic smile I’ve ever seen!’” she recalled to Vogue in 2009. “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.”
Tom and Gisele’s love story quickly kicked off, but by February 2007, their relationship suffered its first setback when the news broke that the athlete was expecting a child with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan, whom he dated from 2004 to 2006. Despite the difficult situation, Gisele not only stood by Tom’s side as he became a dad to his eldest son, Jack, in August 2007, but she embraced her role as his “bonus mom.”
“I don’t like the word ‘stepmom,’” the supermodel explained while replying to a fan via Instagram in February 2020. “I like the word ‘bonus mom’ because I feel like it’s a blessing in my life. I feel so lucky that I got to have an extra wonderful little angel in my life.”
Following Jack’s birth, Tom and Gisele married in 2009 and expanded their family when they welcomed their son, Ben, in December of that year. Their daughter, Vivian, arrived three years later in December 2012. Looking back, the exes embraced their blended brood.
At one time, Tom and Gisele were “such a strong family unit,” an insider told Closer, adding that they were “are best friends, partners and each other’s biggest support systems.”
However, their relationship crumbled amid Tom’s busy football career. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers just missed out on the Super Bowl in 2022, leading fans to speculate whether the football legend would be back for another season or hang up his helmet to spend more time at home with his kids. After 22 incredible seasons in the NFL, he announced his retirement on social media on February 1, 2022. However, less than a month later, he revealed that he was coming out of retirement to play another season.
