The model and the NFL quarterback with 6 Super Bowls to his name met in late 2006. This gorgeous couple started out on a simple blind date; although Brady was in a relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan; he and Gisele felt a strong bond. The couple met at the West Village wine bar Turk & Frogs in 2006, and the model later revealed it was love at first sight for her.
In an interview, she mentioned that Brady had the most beautiful and charismatic smile she had ever seen and that the couple-to-be sat down and talked for three hours until Gisele had to go home for Christmas. Shortly after that meeting, Brady split from Moynahan and the two officially began dating.
Things soon got complicated for the new couple when Moynahan announced her pregnancy with Brady’s child in February 2007. The news almost forced the model to end her relationship with the soccer star. She later mentioned in a CBS morning interview that she often questioned her position in their relationship and felt like running away.
family and marriage
On August 22, 2007, Tom’s child was born to ex-Moynahan, a son named John “Jack” Edward Thomas Moynahan. In Gisele’s 2018 memoir, the model revealed that she calls Tom’s son her “bonus child” and said Jack expanded her heart in ways she found indescribable. Also, Jack brought out the role of Brady, which Gisele cherishes, and made her love him even more than before. Their relationship grew stronger and it probably wouldn’t have been if it wasn’t for Jack.
Two years into their relationship, Tom finally proposed to Gisele by making up a story about their flooded apartments and Brady fixing them. When Gisele arrived at her apartment, she found her house adorned with candles and rose petals, while Brady lay on his knee, ring in hand. They married in a private ceremony in Santa Monica, California, in 2009.
The entire wedding was planned in 10 days and was an intimate occasion with steak, champagne and cake on the menu. They celebrated another wedding ceremony with their extended friends and family. Brady and Bundchen share two children, a 12-year-old son Benjamin and a nine-year-old daughter Vivian.
roles in marriage
In February, after 20 seasons with the New England Patriots and one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Brady announced his NFL retirement only to reveal his plan to return six weeks later. Before his brief hiatus from the sport, the seven-time Super Bowl winner praised his wife for “holding the house down for a long time” during his career.
In a recent interview, Gisele shared that as long as her husband, Tom Brady, trusts her choices, she’s happy to play the role, she says. The 41-year-old supermodel’s priorities changed when she welcomed her son Benjamin, now 12, and daughter Vivian, 9.
Bummel, once the highest-paid model, told British Vogue in a new interview that she now likes to focus on her children. She added that the roles of her and her football player husband are complementary in their marriage.
