In the rumors: Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s marriage could end

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady has had a dream marriage (at least by Hollywood standards) to his 13-year-old wife, Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen. The couple have two children together, son Benjamin and daughter Vivian, per Parade, in addition to Brady’s son Jack from his previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan. Bundchen has supported Brady as he continued his football career, even after retiring on February 1 – for just 40 days. “Over the last two months I’ve realized that my place is still on the field and not in the stands,” Brady wrote on Instagram on March 13, announcing his retirement. “That time will come. But it’s not now,” he said, also mentioning some “unfinished business.” In April, Brady told Complex about his main motivation. “There is only one reason to play for me at this point in my career,” he said. “And that’s up for grabs.” Apparently, seven Super Bowl wins aren’t enough.

Although Brady cited spending more time with family as the reason for his retirement, he still wanted to return to the field. Even a 10-year, $375 million broadcast deal as an analyst at Fox Sports, per BucsWire, wasn’t enough to tempt him to consider retiring early. (He’ll take the lucrative job when he retires.) He also thanked his “supportive family” on IG, to which Bundchen replied, “Here we go again! He’s now trying to balance his personal and work life, but apparently that’s not enough.

Despite Gisele Bundchen’s apparent support for Tom Brady’s retirement, she appears to have doubts now that Brady is in the midst of his 23rd NFL season. She was more excited about his retirement, saying, “I’m as excited as you are for what the future holds” (via Hello!). But recently, the pair have fallen out, with Bundchen reportedly leaving for Costa Rica while Brady stayed in Florida for training.

“There were problems in the marriage because of his decision not to retire,” a source told Page Six. “They had agreed that he would retire to focus on family, then he changed his mind.” Bundchen had told British Vogue while “[h]His focus is on his career, mine mostly on the kids.” She had also said, “I’m very grateful that he lets me take the reins when it comes to our family.” But that can be exhausting , and she is entitled to it also to her career.

“I want to be there for my wife. She has goals and ambitions,” Brady told Complex. “I want to win on the field, but I also want to win off the field [too].” He’s been taking care of the kids while Bundchen is in Costa Rica. Though Brady is trying to balance family and work by taking time off from training for a family vacation, it seems it wasn’t enough. As Bundchen told Vogue, a relationship is “never the fairy tale people want to believe. It takes work to really be in sync with someone, especially after you have kids.”
