AceShowbiz - Gisele Bundchen's true feelings for her alleged new man Joaquim Valente have been revealed. If a new report is to be believed, the Brazilian supermodel has a "deep relationship" with her jiu-jitsu instructor months after her divorce from Tom Brady.
A source close to the 42-year-old beauty told PEOPLE that she and Joaquim share a tight bond. Though so, the insider said that they aren't rushing into putting any type of romantic label on their relationship.
"Gisele adores and trusts [Joaquim] and has been spending a lot of time with him, but I don't think it's a traditional dating scenario," the insider unveiled. "They have a deep personal relationship, and he is a teacher to her and the kids. Whether or not it will ever become more than that rests on the table."
The source added that Gisele loves Costa Rica, the spot where she and Joaquim have vacationed together on numerous occasions, and is keeping fit and active. A second insider close to the model noted that she's "focused on her kids, her health and work," adding, "She is happy and doing really well."
"She had a wonderful Christmas in Brazil. It was the perfect trip. She feels excited and hopeful about the new year," the informant further shared, "Last year was rough, but she is confident that things will just keep going up from here. She has no regrets. She wishes Tom the best, but is confident that the divorce was the right option."
Last week, Gisele and was spotted jogging with the jiu-jitsu pro in Costa Rica. Photos surfacing online captured the cover girl running in front of her male companion. For the outing, she wore olive running shorts and a matching sports bra that she paired with black shoes. Joaquim, for his part, sported a light blue T-shirt, black running shorts and white sneakers.
Gisele and Joaquim were linked romantically in November last year following her divorce from the seven-time Super Bowl champ. At that time, they were captured stepping out to Koji in Provincia de Puntarenas, joined by her two children, 13-year-old Benjamin and 10-year-old Vivian, as well as Joaquim's co-trainer Jordan.
