Tom Brady is married to the Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen. However, there are rumours that the couple may finally get a divorce which will put an end to their 13-year marriage.
Brady is arguably the greatest football player of all time! Although he announced his retirement, at the end of Super Bowl LV when he won his 7th career title. But he could not stay away from what he did the best and came back to Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After quitting New England Patriots, Brady joined Buccaneers and handed them their 2nd Super Bowl title in the franchise’s history.
Throughout the course of his career, Brady has registered a lot of records which will be incredibly hard to beat! To begin with, Brady himself has won more Super Bowls than any other franchise in NFL history. But that is not just it, he also has several other Super Bowl records under his belt. He has made 10 Super Bowl appearances, which is more than any other player.
His other Super Bowl records include 21 touchdown passes, 3,039 passing yards, and the most number of passing yards in a Super Bowl game, 505. The 45-year-old also has 6 game-winning drives, 43 completions and 62 pass attempts in a game. In his 10 Super Bowl appearances, he has made 421 pass attempts and 277 completions. Tom is also a 5-time Super Bowl MVP, more than any other player in NFL.
Being the superstar that he is, there is no surprise that Brady is a rich man. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the quarterback is worth $250 million. Although it is a lot of money, it seems his wife Gisele Bündchen is far richer! So the question is, who is Gisele and how did she amass all her wealth? Let’s find out!
Who is Tom Brady’s wife Gisele Bündchen?
As mentioned previously, Gisele Bündchen is a successful Brazilian model. However, as her surname may suggest, she has roots back in Germany. Bündchen was born on July 20th 1980, in the Rio Grande do Sul region of Brazil. Her parents are Valdir Bündchen and Vania Nonnenmacher. Gisele’s father Valdir is an acclaimed writer and sociologist.
Gisele has five other sisters, Raquel, Graziela, Gabriela, Rafaela and Patricia. Patricia and Gisele are fraternal twins. During an interview with Wall Street Journal, the 42-year-old revealed that she wanted to become a volleyball player. But it was her mother Vania, who sent Gisele on the path of becoming a world-famous supermodel.
In 1993, She was enrolled in a modelling course by her mother to build up her self-confidence along with her sisters. It turned out to be the biggest turning point of her life, as it led to her being discovered by Elite Model Management. In 1995, she decided to pursue modelling as a career and Gisele’s major break came when she debuted at 1996’s New York Fashion Week.
What is Gisele Bündchen’s net worth?
Gisele Bündchen became Victoria’s Secret model in 1999. However, she was not an instant success. During a 2016 interview with People, she revealed the stories of her humble beginnings. Apparently, she was told that her “nose was too big,” for her to be a model. During her struggling days, Bündchen revealed that she was rejected 42-times. After several rejections, she was finally cast for Alexander McQueen’s broadway show in 1998.
In 2000, she signed a massive $25 million contract with Victoria’s secret. Not only that, Gisele was also involved in a romantic relationship with Hollywood star, Leonardo DiCaprio. However, she described that period of her life as hectic, as it brought a lot of unwanted attention towards her personal life; something which she “didn’t feel very comfortable with.”
As per celebrity net worth, Gisele Bündchen has a net worth of $400 million. The report also suggests that, from 2012-2017, Bündchen was the world’s highest-paid model. So that means, Gisele is $150 million richer than her husband Tom Brady. A 2014 report from Forbes added that products featuring her generated a revenue of $1 Billion per year.
