With the big news on Wednesday regarding Tom Brady's retirement, the entire NFL world has paused to acknowledge his excellent 23-year career.

The list of NFL-related celebrities that sent him their best wishes includes one interesting name in particular. His former wife, Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, sent him a cute message on his Instagram post announcing his retirement.

Gisele left a comment saying, "Wishing you only wonderful things in this new chapter of your life." The pair announced their divorce midway through the 2022 season.

Tom Brady announces retirement 'for good' following 2022 season

The greatest quarterback of all time called a career for a second time, but he promised that this time, he's not coming back.

He posted a video on Instagram to make the announcement official. Unlike last time, when ESPN insider Adam Schefter broke the news, Brady was the one who broke the news to the world.

In the video, he says:

"I’ll get to the point right away. I’m retiring for good. I know the process was a pretty big deal last time, so when I woke up this morning, I figured I would just press record and let you guys know first. [...] Thank you guys so much to every single one of you for supporting me. My family, friends, my teammates, my competitors, I could go on forever. There's too many. Thank you guys for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn't change a thing."

His comeback in 2022 wasn't as expected, as Brady struggled for most of the season and just barely made the playoffs with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They were handled easily by the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Wild Card round.

But there's nothing for him to be ashamed of about his career. He won more Super Bowls than any franchise in the league and he's the only-ever player to win multiple rings since turning 40. He holds numerous remarkable NFL records.

His next step is broadcasting. He has a 10-year, $375 million deal with FOX set to start right after he retires. Even if he's not playing anymore, he will still be a part of our NFL Sundays. Just a different view this time.
