Even though it looks like a world famous supermodel Gisele Bündchen and seven-time Super Bowl winner brave cat lead a glamorous life, she asserts that their relationship is far from the “fairy tale” that the public perceives it to be.
In a cover story for British VogueIn June 2022, Bündchen explained that it takes a lot of effort and communication to ensure that she and her husband are always on the same page. “He focused on his career, mine mainly on the kids,” she explains. “It was never the fairy tale people wanted to believe. It takes work to really sync up with someone, especially after you have kids. “
She goes on to clarify that successful marriages “don’t just happen,” but it helps when a partner recognizes your personal strengths and encourages them. “I am so grateful that he has let me take the reins when it comes to our family. He trusts my decisions,” she said.
Brady and Bündchen first met in 2006 and it was love at first sight, according to the supermodel. In 2009, she confessed Vanity Fair, “I knew the right way — the first time I saw him. We met through a friend. The moment I saw him, he smiled and I said, ‘That’s the prettiest, most captivating smile I’ve ever seen!’ We sat and talked for three hours. I have to go home for Christmas, but I don’t want to leave. You know the feeling, like, you can’t have enough? From the first day we met, we never went a day without saying a word. Shortly after that first meeting, Brady also broke up with his then-girlfriend and mother of their first child, the actress. Bridget Moynahan. The couple got married in February 2009, welcoming their son Benjamin next year, and their daughter Vivian arrived in December 2012.

However, during that brief retirement, the NFL star wrote an emotional tribute to his wife on their 13th wedding anniversary, thanking her for everything. She worked hard and raised her children while he put his career first. He wrote, “13 years ago we both said ‘I like’… .and you are the best thing that has ever happened to my life. Now I love you more than I could have imagined. You are the best mother, wife and supporter in the world and I am so lucky to call you my wife. Te amo muito meu love, happy anniversary @gisele. ”
