Gisele Talked About Issues In Her Marriage With Tom Before
The news of their divorce comes after Tom Brady announced his return to the game. Yes, he did mention before he is retiring but the decision changed.
The model also discussed their marital challenges.
“I’ve done my part, which is [to] be there for [Tom]. I moved to Boston, and I focused on creating a cocoon and a loving environment for my children to grow up in and to be there supporting him and his dreams.
Seeing my children succeed and become the beautiful little humans that they are, seeing him succeed, and being fulfilled in his career – it makes me happy. At this point in my life, I feel like I’ve done a good job on that. And now it’s going to be my turn. It’s not like I’m going to be in the valley forever.”
The model then spoke about the violent sport that Brady is involved in.
Gisele told, “Obviously, I have my concerns — this is a very violent sport, and I have my children, and I would like him to be more present. I have definitely had those conversations with him over and over again.
But ultimately, I feel that everybody has to make a decision that works for [them]. He needs to follow his joy, too.”
The pair made this emotionally heartbreaking decision and might be saddening for their followers too. What are your thoughts on their split?
