Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen have finalized their divorce after 13 years of marriage.
The 45-year-old Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback released a statement via his Instagram Story that read:
In recent days, my wife and I finalized our divorce from one another after 13 years of marriage.
We arrived at this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time we spent together.
We are blessed with beautiful and wonderful children who will continue to be the center of our world in every way.
We will continue to work together as parents to always ensure they receive the love and attention they deserve.
We arrived at this decision to end our marriage after much consideration.
Doing so is, of course, painful and difficult, like it is for many people who go through the same thing every day around the world.
However we wish only the best for each other as we pursue whatever new chapters in our lives that are yet to be written.
And we kindly ask for privacy and respect as we navigate what is to come in the days and weeks ahead. Thank you. ??
Gisele Bündchen also took to social media to release a statement of her own regarding her divorce from Tom Brady.
The 42-year-old former Victoria’s Secret model wrote:
With much gratitude for our time together, Tom and I have amicably finalized our divorce.
My priority has always been and will continue to be our children whom I love with all my heart.
We will continue co-parenting to give them the love, care, and attention they greatly deserve.
The decision to end a marriage is never easy but we have grown apart and while it is, of course, difficult to go through something like this, I feel blessed for the time we had together and only wish the best for Tom always.
I kindly ask that our privacy be respected during this sensitive time.
Thank you. ??
