Friday morning, both Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen took to their Instagram stories to inform the public that they have finalized their divorce after 13 years of marriage.
“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 wrote her piece also and talked about her time with Brady and that they've grown apart.
“With much gratitude for our time together, Tom and I have amicably finalized our divorce.” Bündchen stated. “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 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.”
