A few days ago, social media erupted after Gisele Bündchen was spotted in Costa Rica with her children and jiu-jitsu instructor, Joaquim Valente. Despite many publications deeming the couple, Gisele’s reps state they were not on a date and simply grabbing a bite to eat.
The timing of it and their history together made everything seem so fishy. In February, Bündchen shared a video of her sessions at his academy, saying she felt “stronger” since she began training.
“I believe the more tools we have in our toolbox the better,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “I feel stronger, more confidence and empowered since I started practicing self-defense.”
Maybe the two of them were simply hungry again, because Bündchen was spotted having dinner with her martial arts instructor Joaquim Valente again while vacationing in Costa Rica.
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel has yet to publicly comment on the outings, but they clearly enjoy each other’s company.
“[Gisele and Joaquim] have known each other for two years,” the insider said.
It leads you to believe things are serious between them as Gisele and Tom’s two children, 12-year-old son Benjamin and 9-year-old daughter Vivian were also in attendance, as was Joaquim’s co-trainer Jordan.
The Brazilian is freshly single after officially divorcing Tampa Bay Bucs QB Tom Brady last month after more than a decade of marriage. The divorce came after a wave of rumors that they were having a ton of problems in their relationship that began when he decided to come back from retirement and play in the NFL again.
Brady and Bündchen were married 13 years before finalizing the terms of their divorce on Oct. 28. Paperwork filed for the split called their marriage “irretrievably broken.”
Despite how everything played out, Brady said that he had “no regrets” about un-retiring while speaking to reporters on Friday.
“I returned because I felt like I wanted to compete, and I spoke to the team about it, and they were excited to have me back,” he added via ESPN. “I don’t really regret those types of things — I think when I commit to it, I mean it, and I do my best and try to give everything I can to this particular opportunity.”
Don’t expect Brady to jump into another relationship so soon as he finally is 100% focused on his team and trying to get them back to the promised land. The Bucs are 5-5 after a win over the Seattle Seahawks in Germany last Sunday. The team is now on their bye week.
