Tom Brady is very “sad” over his huge spat with wife Gisele Bündchen but insiders say he is focusing on being “super dad” to his children.
Page Six exclusively revealed the model has left their family compound in Tampa, Fla., for Costa Rica following a series of heated arguments over Brady’s shock decision to un-retire from the NFL. He has remained behind for team training.
Sources say Brady, 45, is taking care of his and Bündchen’s children, Benjamin, 14, and Vivian, 9, plus Jack, his 15-year-old son with ex Bridget Moynahan.
A source told us of Brady, “He’s very sad at the moment. Friends know they’ve had a serious disagreement this time.
“It seems that Gisele gets mad and says things like she’s leaving him, but in the past, they’ve always made up. But maybe this time it is more serious.
“He’s with the kids, and is just trying to be super dad.”
On his Instagram account Monday, Brady — who married Bundchen in 2009 — posted a video of himself taking Benjamin and Vivian to their first day of school.
The Buccaneers quarterback missed 11 days of training in August and when quizzed about his disappearance, he hinted at marital problems. He said: “It’s all personal … everyone’s got different situations they’re dealing with. We all have really unique challenges to our life. I’m 45 years old, man. There’s a lot of s–t going on.”
Brady has been looking downcast at training camp, according to sources.
A source previously told us of Brady and Bündchen, 42, “There’s been trouble in the marriage over his decision to un-retire. Gisele has always been the one with the kids.
“They had agreed he would retire to focus on the family, then he changed his mind.”
Adds an insider, “They have a fiery relationship. Gisele is a bit hot-headed — she has that Brazilian heat.”
However, these issues have seemingly been going on for the last few years.
In 2020, during an appearance on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show, Brady admitted that “[Bündchen] didn’t feel like I was doing my part for the family.
“She felt like I would play football all season and she would take care of the house,” he added. “She wasn’t satisfied with our marriage. So I needed to make a change in that. Her point was, ‘Well, yeah, of course this works for you. It all works for you. But it doesn’t work for me.’ ”
And as for Bündchen, she told British Vogue about their relationship in May, “I don’t think relationships just happen; it’s never the fairy tale people want to believe it is. It takes work to be really in sync with someone, especially after you have kids.
“His focus is on his career, mine is mostly on the kids.”
Reps for Brady and Bündchen didn’t comment.
