10 Things You Didn’t Know About Tom Brady And Gisele’s Relationship
Separately, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen are two of the most famous people on the planet, and together they form one heck of a celebrity power couple. The five time Super Bowl winning New England Patriots quarterback and the iconic supermodel have now been married for nine years and support each other through all of the highs and all of the lows. Despite their level of fame, the two are actually very good at keeping their personal life out of the spotlight, and since they are one of the most beloved and most adorable couples, we found out some interesting facts about their relationship! Check it out:
10. The Set-Up
So how exactly does one of the NFL’s hottest players and one of the world’s most notable supermodels meet? Many would imagine at some A-list celebrity soiree, but that isn’t the case for Brady and Bundchen. The two got together after someone they only credit as a “mutual friend” introduced them. “This friend told me he knew a girl version of me,” Brady stated in an interview with Details while Bundchen chimed in, “And [the friend] said to me he’d found a boy version of me.” In a separate interview to Vanity Fair, Bundchen gushed about first meeting Brady, stating, “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. I had to go home for Christmas, but I didn’t want to leave. You know that feeling of, like, you can’t get enough? From the first day we met, we’ve never spent one day without speaking to each other.”
9. The Controversy
While everything was going very well for the new couple, they did hit a bump in the road when Tom Brady’s ex-girlfriend actress Bridget Moynahan announced she was three months pregnant in February 2007. The timing meant Brady and Bundchen hooked up as soon as he split from Bridget, but also that he left her around the time she became pregnant. To many, it looked shady on Brady’s part and years later Moynahan spoke out about the time saying it was a “traumatic time of being heartbroken and pregnant,” and added, “it was f–ked up.” Later, Gisele opened up about how it almost ruined their young relationship. “It was a challenging thing. Here I am, thinking I’m dating this guy, we met and we started dating and everything’s great. Then this happens. I felt like I didn’t know what to do. It was one of those moments, do I just run away? And now, eight years later, I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter bonus child.” Despite the drama, the three parents are very amicable, and all have a relationship in the best interest of raising Jack to be happy and loved.
