Are Gisele and Tom Brady Still Married?
There’s no denying it, Tom Brady is one of the most successful athletes of all time. With six Super Bowl wins and nine appearances, Brady will no doubt make his way to the NFL hall of fame. When it comes to his professional life, there’s not much more Brady can ask for — except maybe a giant eraser to get rid of the deflate-gate scandal of 2015.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen met in 2006
It was a mutual friend that first suggested that Brady and Bundchen meet. Bundchen had just ended her relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio and Brady had just split from Blue Bloods actress Bridget Moynahan. Though the two were fresh out of relationships, Bundchen admitted that the spark between the two was instantaneous. She says that the two have talked to each other every day since that first meeting.
But there was one little hiccup in the early days of their relationship, and that was Brady’s ex. Shortly after starting their relationship, Bundchen and Brady learned that Moynahan was pregnant with Brady’s child. The NFL star and supermodel stuck through the unexpected event and now share custody with Moynahan.
The three have developed a supportive relationship for the child with Moynahan telling Vanity Fair: “I’m raising a child, and it’s public…my son has two loving parents and an extended family, whether it’s cousins or stepmothers or boyfriends. My son is surrounded by love.”
When did Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen get married?
For two people as famous as Brady and Bundchen, you would think that their wedding would be a large, star-studded affair. But in fact, their 2009 wedding was just the opposite. The couple was married in a small Catholic ceremony in California on February 26, 2009. Two months later, the couple had another intimate ceremony — this time in Costa Rica. Last year, the couple released never-before-seen pictures of their wedding on Instagram.
Brady told GQ that their first wedding was planned in only 10 days and had a total of 20 guests. Their Costa Rica wedding had slightly more people in attendance, with 25 guests. Though the couple aimed to keep both of their weddings intimate, there was obviously media interest in the wedding.
Even with the couple’s Costa Rica wedding, the paparazzi were on their tail. During the event, bodyguards attempted to get the harassing photographers to leave, but things got violent. Shots were fired and the two bodyguards were ultimately convicted of attempted murder.
How many children do Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen have?
In addition to Brady’s son with Moynahan, the couple has two other children. The famous pair welcomed their first child just months after their Costa Rica wedding. Benjamin Rein was born on December 8, 2009. Three years later, Bundchen gave birth to a baby girl. Vivien Lake was born on December 5, 2012.
Brady’s three children and his wife can frequently be seen in the stands cheering their favorite player on. Brady’s love for his family is apparent, just take a look at his Instagram feed. But Brady admits that one of his children has a way of working daddy’s heartstrings.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Brady revealed that he has a hard time saying no to his little girl, saying: “That little girl owns my day — owns my life.[I] cannot say ‘no’ to anything.”
