"She wasn’t satisfied" - Looking back at how Tom Brady saved his marriage with Gisele Bundchen
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen are the NFL's biggest power couple. With a combined net worth well into the hundreds of millions, the two are titans in their respective fields.
Having a long-lasting marriage while constantly being in the spotlight can often be challenging. A couple of years ago, Brady admitted that not everything was smooth-sailing in terms of his relationship with the Brazilian supermodel.
On The Howard Stern Show in 2020, the quarterback revealed that Bundchen once left him a note saying that she wasn’t happy with the dynamics of their marriage.
"There was a couple years ago, she didn’t feel I was doing my part for the family. She felt like I would play football all season and she would take care of the house and then all the sudden when the season would end, that I’d be like, ‘Great, let me get into all my other business activities. Let me get into my football training.'"
Bundchen went on to question Brady's contribution to their family as tension between the two grew.
"She’s sitting there going, ‘Well, when are you going to do things for the house? When are you going to take the kids to school and do that?’”
This was the tipping point for the Buccaneers quarterback and made him realize that he needed to make changes, and fast.
"She wasn’t satisfied with our marriage, and I needed to make a change in that. Her point was, ‘Of course this works for you, but it doesn’t work for me.' I had to check myself, because she was like, ‘I have my goals and dreams too.’"
Brady and Bundchen reportedly went to therapy to sort out their issues.
