Gisele Bündchen Wanted Tom Brady to “Move On” After 5th Super Bowl Win, Analyst Reveals

It has been a year since the NFL world witnessed the heartbreaking split of Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen. As she completes a full year being a single mom, the Brazilian supermodel looks back at her marriage with Tom Brady that sometimes made her feel “suffocated”.

Gisele Bundchen recently made a public appearance with Lee Cowan for CBS News Sunday Morning which was broadcasted on September 24th and streamed on Paramount+. During her interaction with the correspondent, she deep dived into her split with the NFL superstar Tom Brady and what led her to finally end her marriage.

Gisele Bundchen Talks in Detail About Her Marriage with Tom Brady

In a candid interview with CBS News Sunday Morning, Gisele Bundchen revealed the kind of emotional turmoil she faced during her marriage to NFL legend Tom Brady. Talking to Cowan, the supermodel said, “You know, I was in tunnels. I couldn’t breathe. And then I started being in studios, and I felt, like, suffocated.”

“I lived on the 9th floor, and I had to go up the stairs because I was afraid I would be stuck on the elevator, and I’d be hyperventilating. You know when you can’t breathe even when the windows are open, you feel like, I don’t want to live like this, you know what I mean?” Gisele added.

The statement by Gisele Bundchen gave a glimpse into the challenges she encountered during her high-profile relationship with Tom Brady. However, Bundchen, when asked about her present life, said, “I’m in a different place in my life. I’m able to choose more of what I want. I think before I was more surviving, and now I’m living, which is different.”

Gisele and Brady were tied in marriage for 13 years before calling it quits in 2022. While talking about her marriage to Vanity Fair in March this year, Gisele had candidly claimed, “Sometimes you grow together; sometimes you grow apart. When I was 26 years old and he was 29 years old, we met, we wanted a family, we wanted things together. As time goes by, we realize that we just wanted different things, and now we have a choice to make.” Bunchen emphasized the importance of individuals evolving and pursuing their own paths, even if it means growing apart.

The Brazilian Supermodel is Back to the Modeling World

Since parting ways with Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen has reignited her supermodel career with a bang. The 43-year-old beauty was discovered at a shopping mall at the tender age of 13. However, she temporarily set aside her career to start a family with NFL GOAT Tom Brady. But now that their children are older, Gisele is back in the spotlight, gracing the fashion world with her beauty.

Back in March 2023, Gisele made the headlines as she posed on the beach for LV. She exuded class sporting a Louis Vuitton swimsuit. Moreover, her return to modeling has been met with enthusiasm, and the industry is embracing her with open arms once again.

Gisele currently boasts lucrative partnerships with brands like Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, H&M, and Under Armor. Even after a break in her career, Gisele still remains one of the most sought-after models in the world.
