Gisele Bündchen is “sincerely happy” for ex-husband Tom Brady following his Wednesday (February 1) announcement that he has decided to re-retire from football. But, sources say, she has “moved on” with her life.
A source close to the supermodel told People magazine that “Gisele moved on with her life quite a while ago and is happy about whatever Tom chooses to do with his life now.” Additionally, “the welfare and happiness of the children” are what is most important to her. The source stressed that she is “fine with his decisions but is not involved with them.” She is “extremely busy in her career and life.” The source added that she is “optimistic about her future.”
The former couple are parents to two children: Benjamin Rein, 13, and Vivian Lake, 10. “Keeping a positive attitude about Tom and her career is part of what you do as a parent,” the source continued. “They are sharing their kids and spreading the love between them so they grow up as normal kids with two caring parents.”
The 45-year-old seven-time Super Bowl champion posted a video message on his social media yesterday that he was retiring “for good.” On the same day last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback announced on Instagram he was retiring to “focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention.” A little over a month later, he announced that he had changed his mind.
“You only get one super emotional retirement essay and I used mine up last year,” he said Wednesday. Bündchen commented on Brady’s Instagram post that she was “Wishing you only wonderful things in this new chapter of your life.”

Last fall, Bündchen told Elle in its October issue that she had concerns about Brady continuing to play football. “This a very violent sport, and I have my children and I would like him to be more present.” She added, “Ultimately, I feel that everybody has to make a decision that works for [them]. He needs to follow his joy, too.” The couple announced their split after 13 years of marriage soon after the story was published.
