Tom Brady left a nice impression on the model and things quickly worked out between the two. The model ended her relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio in 2005 and was not planning on dating anyone until she met Brady. The two lived together for a while and eventually got married in 2009.

In 2009, Gisele Bündchen told Vanity Fair about her first date with the NFL star. She said,

“I knew right away – the first time I saw him. We met through a friend. The moment I saw him, he smiled and I was like, That is the most beautiful, charismatic smile I’ve ever seen! We sat and talked for three hours.”

The model further explained that at the time, she was not planning on getting into a relationship with anyone as she wanted some time alone to know more about herself. She said,

“I’d been single for a year, and I wasn’t looking for a relationship. I’d always been in serious relationships, but you learn a lot about yourself when you’re by yourself, and I was enjoying that process. But you don’t choose.”

Both of them have an ambitious nature as the two have worked very hard to build their careers. Gisele Bündchen had to put her career on a back-burner in order to support Tom Brady’s dreams. This could be one of the reasons why she initiated the divorce process.

Sources close to the couple have claimed that Tom Brady’s dedication to the sport is the primary reason behind their split. In February 2022, Brady announced that he is retiring from American football to focus on his family but just six weeks later, he changed his mind as he announced that he is returning to the sport. This decision could be the reason why his marriage came tumbling down as the model wanted him to focus on his family, something which the sport didn’t allow him to do.
