AceShowbiz - Moving on from a failed marriage does come with the challenge for Gisele Bundchen. While she has been putting on a strong front, the model has reportedly had "hard times" when she missed her ex-husband Tom Brady "terribly."
Despite the occasional emotional turmoil, the 42-year-old beauty reportedly has had not regret with her decision to call it quits with her former husband of 13 years. "Gisele is proud of herself for finding the courage to do the right thing for herself and for Tom," a so-called insider tells Radar Online.
"There have been some hard times when she's missed him terribly, but she's focused on living her best life," the source dishes, before assuring that the catwalk star is in "a great place mentally and physically."
As she adjusts to a new routine post-breakup, Gisele is reportedly wasting no time dwelling on her broken heart. She, instead, is diving back into her uplifting wellness regimen which involves eating organic foods and practicing yoga and martial arts.
The Brazilian-born model recently made a solo appearance at the 2023 Met Gala on May 1, which has apparently further boosted her confidence. "It made her feel free and powerful," says one informant. "She was the life of the party and clearly sent the message that she's ready to spread her wings."
Gisele and Tom confirmed their split on October 28, 2022 after finalizing their divorce, following weeks of separation rumors. "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 former NFL star wrote on Instagram.
The 45-year-old former athlete continued, "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."
The former spouses share daughter Vivian, 10, and Benjamin, 13. He is also a father to John, 15, whom he shares with his ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan. While the retired pro football player has reportedly been boasting to his inner circle that he's secretly dating a "blonde-haired superstar," Gisele is "too busy to date right now" and is just "excited about the future" she is building with her kids.
