Divorce from Tom Brady was the 'death' of her dream, says Gisele Bundchen - “I believed in fairy tales"
Since announcing their divorce last fall, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady have continued to say that they are focusing on their children and co-parenting.
But now the former Victoria's Secret model has opened up about her divorce from the quarterback after 13 years of marriage. Hitting the shelves this week, Bundchen is on the cover of Vanity Fair and shared that ending her marriage was:
“The death of my dream.”
Bundchen, who was clearly emotional while speaking of her marriage and divorce, went on to say that she always dreamed of what her life would look like. She said that she knows that she did everything she could to keep her relationship intact.
Gisele Bundchen then said that she believed in fairy tales when she was a child and that knowing that it can happen is beautiful:
“It’s tough because you imagine your life was going to be a certain way, and you did everything you could, you know? I believed in fairy tales when I was a kid. I think it’s beautiful to believe in that. I mean, I’m so grateful I did.”
Gisele Bundchen shares reason for divorce from Tom Brady
Gisele Bundchen discussed a few topics throughout her interview with Vanity Fair. The model made it clear that she and Tom Brady are not feuding and that football wasn't the reason for their divorce. She also cleared the air about her supposed hatred for the game, which she said is completely false.
So, what caused the two to call it quits after 13 years? According to the model, it was because the two had grown apart and now wanted different things in life. She said that when they began dating and got married, they both wanted the same things, but as time went on, that all changed:
"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."
She said that by staying together and not allowing each other to achieve their individual dreams, it would have been worse than getting a divorce. This way, they can each pursue their goals.
