Gisele Bündchen e Tom Brady sono stati gettati nel proverbiale fuoco dei genitori all’inizio della loro relazione. La famosa coppia ha iniziato a frequentarsi poco dopo che la leggenda della NFL aveva rotto con la fidanzata Bridget Moynahan, che è la madre di suo figlio Jack Moynahan. Solo pochi mesi dopo che Bündchen ha iniziato a frequentare Brady, Moynahan ha scoperto di essere incinta. “È stata sicuramente una sorpresa per entrambi”, ha detto a Vanity Fair nel 2009. “All’inizio stai vivendo questa fantasia romantica”, ha aggiunto la top model. Anche se, alla fine, la gravidanza ha contribuito a consolidare la loro relazione. “Penso che sia stata una benedizione, perché altrimenti non avrei saputo di cosa fosse fatto”, ha detto Bündchen.
Why raising kids with Tom Brady is difficult
On paper, the famous quarterback and supermodel appear to have the perfect family, but Gisele Bündchen revealed that parenting with Tom Brady is more difficult than it seems. "I don't think relationships just happen; it's never the fairy tale people want to believe it is," the Victoria's Secret model told British Vogue on May 18. "It takes work to be really in sync with someone, especially after you have kids," she added.
Apparently, the couple's household efforts were divided, as Bündchen let her career take a backseat to motherhood. "His focus is on his career, mine is mostly on the kids," she told the publication. Although, Bündchen had zero resentment about carrying the parenting burden. "And I'm very grateful that he lets me take the reins when it comes to our family. He trusts my decisions," she said.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion previously hinted his intense work ethic detracted from his home life. "I know I'm not as good a dad to my kids that my dad's been to me," he said on an episode of his docu-series "Man In the Arena" in April. Over time, Bündchen had no problem doing the heavy-lifting as a parent, but even she initially struggled with the duties. "When I became a mom, I kind of lost myself. It was like a part of me died," she wrote in her memoir "Lessons: My Path To a Meaningful Life" in 2018 (via Fox News).
