Supermodel Gisele Bündchen got everyone’s attention when she reacted to the news that her ex-husband, Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady, was retiring again — this time “for good.”
The 42-year-old former Victoria’s Secret model’s response could be found in the comments section of Brady’s post on Wednesday. In the now-viral video on Instagram, Brady first thanked fans and everyone who helped him along the way, before he explained that he was retiring from the NFL after 23 seasons in the league.
“I know the process was a pretty big deal last time, so when I woke up this morning, I figured I’d just press record and let you guys know first,” Brady shared, noting his previous retirement announcement on Feb. 1, 2022, before changing his mind.

In response, Bündchen wrote that she wished her ex only the best.
“Wishing you only wonderful things in this new chapter of your life,” the supermodel wrote, as she included a praying hands emoji in her comment.
The retirement announcement comes after a rather tumultuous 365 days for Brady, who first announced he was retiring on February 1, 2022, before he reversed course weeks later and said he was coming back to the Buccaneers.
Not long after, reports began surfacing that Bündchen, his wife at the time, was not pleased and had expected the retirement to stick.
Speculation continued for months that the two were headed for divorce. In October, Brady finally confirmed reports that he and Bündchen were officially divorced after 13 years of marriage.
In a lengthy post shared on social media, the Super Bowl champion wrote that 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,” the 7-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback shared. “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.”
Bündchen and Brady share two kids. She previously made it clear she wanted her husband to be more present following his announcement that he was coming out of retirement in 2022, as The Daily Wire previously reported.
“Obviously, I have my concerns — this is a very violent sport, and I have my children and I would like him to be more present,” Bündchen previously shared. “I have definitely had those conversations with him over and over again. But ultimately, I feel that everybody has to make a decision that works for [them]. He needs to follow his joy, too.”
