If you want to learn more about Tom Brady’s wife and their relationship through the years, read on for everything you need to know!
Who Is Gisele Bundchen, Tom Brady’s Wife?
Gisele Bundchen is was discovered in Horizontina, Brazil at the age of 13. The young Brazillian was stopping by McDonald’s with her volleyball team, the sport that she dreamed of going pro in. There, a modeling agent found her and the exclusive world of fashion whisked her away.
Three years later, she was on the cover of Vogue, establishing her as a frontrunner in the industry. Surprising as it might sound, she was considered curvy for a model, especially at the time. Her rise to fame marked the beginning of the end of the slim, “heroin chic” look that dominated fashion.
In 2000, the model became the face of Victoria’s Secret, a position she’d hold for seven years. In addition, she started dating Leonardo DiCaprio. Now, Gisele was a household name.
Her first name moniker marked the return of the “supermodel,” a model who is recognized by just their first name. Others included Naomi and Tyra. She experienced professional success modeling for high-power fashion houses like Christian Dior and Valentino until she retired in 2015.
After her retirement from the fashion world, she launched her own lines of shoes, clothing, and jewelry.
Growing up with pimples and acne, Gisele made it her mission to instill self-love and high self-esteem in young women. She started her own skincare line, Sejaa, with this purpose. Her product includes both cream, and affirmations to build self-esteem while clearing the skin.
She also founded the Luz Foundation, with a similar mission to build self-esteem in young women. Her net worth is estimated to be $400-million, with a $40-million annual salary, according to CelebrityNetWorth.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen Relationship
Football fans hardly need an overview of former New England Patriots and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady. Considered by many to be the greatest player in NFL history, Brady has led his various teams to a record seven Super Bowl championships. He also has an impressive 3 MVP awards, 5 Super Bowl MVPs, and 14 Pro Bowl nods on his resume.
His number one fan has been Gisele since they first met. Just as he’s supported her every move on the runway and off, she’s been by his side on the pitch and off.
These two household name celebrities knew of each other long before they first began dating. About a year before they first met, Gisele was first shown a photo of Tom and showed no interest at the time. Although he was cute, she said, the fact that he had a girlfriend made him totally unappealing to her.
Brady at the time was in a relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan. Brady heard Gisele’s critique, labeling it “harsh” and unfair.
A year later, in 2006, Brady split with Bridget and was set up on a blind date with Gisele by a mutual friend. Despite her critiques, Gisele says she knew immediately that he was the love of her life. His charisma and good looks reeled her in, and he found himself similarly enraptured.
Since they met, they haven’t gone a single day without talking.
A Rocky Road
After their instant connection, the couple was met with trouble almost immediately. Bridget, Brady’s recent ex, found out that she was pregnant. Just two months into their budding romance, this highly publicized discovery turned their world upside down.
The couple almost broke up, but now they consider Bridget and Tom’s child, Jack, a “bonus” in their relationship. He was a blessing to them and enriches their relationship more than he strained it at the time.
A Wedding So Nice They Did It Twice
Three years after they met, in 2009, Tom proposed to Gisele on a private plane lined with roses and champagne. They practically ran down the aisle, getting married a mere ten days later.
Their wedding was held in a small catholic church in California. A second ceremony was held two months later on the beach of Costa Rica, a second home to them.
Gisele cites Tom’s Catholic upbringing and strong family values as one of the reasons their relationship was so effortless. Their bonus child, Jack, was welcomed into the family and soon they had two kids of their own.
Benny was born in 2009, in the bathtub of their penthouse in Boston. Vivian Brady was born three years later. Gisele opted for a home birth both times, despite doctors’ warnings.
Ups and Downs
Despite being named a power couple by Forbes, the two experienced their share of ups and downs. They remain private about the details of their marital struggles, but it’s clear that they’ve experienced periods of strained intimacy.
After Super Bowl XLVII, when the Patriots lost to the Giants (a game Brady still wants revenge for), Gisele was caught criticizing her husband’s ability to throw the ball. In addition, when Tom was suspended in 2015 for using under-inflated balls, their relationship also suffered.
However, both have remarked on the supportive nature of their relationship. The reason they’ve made it work for 12 years is because of their adaptability. Every challenge they faced, they met with love and support.
After every low point they faced, they soon found a high point.
Where Are Tom Brady and His Wife Now?
The two have had a series of mansions and second homes throughout their life together and currently reside in a suburb of Boston. They have a 5-acre property, with an almost 15,000 square foot mansion.
The two eat a green diet, and their house is solar-powered, reflecting their environmentally-friendly values.
In addition, they have a 5,000 square foot condo in Tribeca, and membership to the exclusive Yellowstone Club in Montana, where they spend the winters on the slopes with fellow members Bill Gates, Justin Timberlake, and more. Membership starts with $400,000 entry fees, and $40,000 annual fees.
The family lives a life full of luxury, love, and romance and foresee many more happy years together.
