Gisele Bündchen Reacts to Tom Brady's Retirement
Gisele Bündchen is publicly reacting to the news that her ex-husband, Tom Brady, is retiring from the NFL ("for good" this time). Brady posted an Instagram Reel on Wednesday morning, and his ex-wife commented on it. Despite their headline-grabbing divorce in late 2022, the 42-year-old model still hopes Brady has success in his "new chapter" of life.
"Wishing you only wonderful things in this new chapter of your life," Bündchen wrote in the comments section of the post. The reason for Brady and Bündchen's divorce has not been officially revealed, but there were reports that Bündchen was not happy with Brady retiring last year only to unretire a month later. The couple filed for divorce in October.

"In recent days, my wife and I finalized our divorce from one another after 13 years of marriage. We arrived at this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time we spent together," Brady said in a statement at the time. "We are blessed with beautiful and wonderful children who will continue to be the center of our world in every way. We will continue to work together as parents to always ensure they receive the love and attention they deserve."
Along with the video, Brady went to his Instagram Story to post a series of photos from his playing career and of his family. Bündchen is seen in a few photos with their two kids — Benjamin, 13, and Vivian, 10. Brady also included a photo of his ex Bridget Moynahan and their 15-year-old son Jack.
"I know the process was a pretty big deal last time so when I woke up this morning I just figured I'd press record and let you guys know first," Brady said in the video. "So I won't be long-winded. You only get one super emotional retirement essay and I used mine up last year. Thank you, guys, so much, to every single one of you for supporting me," he continues, appearing choked up. "My family, my friends, my teammates, my competitors, I could go on forever. There's too many. Thank you guys for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn't change a thing. Love you all."
