You don’t have to like watching football to appreciate the NFL’s cutest couples! Remember: Football season only lasts 18 weeks, but these love stories will last a lifetime.
Former spouses Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, for example. Tom began his career in the National Football League in 2000 with the New England Patriots. Six years later, he began dating Gisele, and in 2009, they got hitched!
Sadly, trouble in paradise started brewing between the duo over the summer of 2022. In August of that year, a source exclusively told that Life & Style Gisele was looking for a divorce.
“Gisele feels that her marriage to Tom has hit a wall,” the insider said at the time. “They haven’t been living together for two months and she has hired a divorce attorney.”
On October 28, the exes announced their divorce via their respective Instagram Stories.
Ultimately, Gisele was by Tom’s side throughout the majority of his legendary career, most notably when Tom left the New England Patriots in March 2020 after 20 years with the team. In addition to Tom sharing an emotional announcement via Instagram, Gisele wrote some kind words of her own. After all, the longtime supermodel had become a major part of the franchise.
“What a ride the last decade has been. Boston has been so good to us and will always be in our hearts. We will forever have wonderful memories. Our kids were born and raised there, and we have made special friendships to last a lifetime,” she wrote, referring to the pair’s children Benjamin and Vivian. “I’ll miss our friends, the beautiful change of seasons and the rides to the stadium to go cheer for Tom and the Pats. Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of my husband and our family throughout all these years. We will miss you!”
Considering Tom, who also shares son John with ex Bridget Moynahan, is often called the GOAT (Greatest of All Time), he and Gisele are pretty much seasoned veterans of the league. However, other couples like Patrick Mahomes and wife Brittany Matthews are newer to the game! Even so, they’re definitely a sweet duo.
The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback and his high school sweetheart welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Sterling Skye, in February 2021 and have been on Cloud 9 ever since. “Mom and Dad taking a small detour to the wedding,” Brittany wrote via Instagram while announcing her pregnancy in October 2020. The two wed in March 2022 and are expecting baby No. 2.
