Tom Brady is one of the most successful sportsmen of his time and had made a success of his marriage.
Recently, Brady and his wife, Gisele Bündchen, had an “epic fight” about a tweet Brady made.
Their kids, who Brady believed were far away from “reality,” are now living with their parents being separated.
Tom Brady has recently become the highest-paid sportsman and has had a marriage with Gisele Bündchen that many envied. However, they have recently run into some issues in their marriage.
Bündchen became angry about a tweet that Brady sent out about whether or not he will be retiring this year. Before the fight, Bündchen had even built a relationship with Brady’s ex.

Brady was previously married to Bridget Moynahan, with whom Bündchen made an effort to be close, as Moynahan is the mother of Brady’s eldest child. When talking about her feelings about being called stepmom, Bündchen said:
“I use the word bonus mom because I feel like it’s a blessing in my life.”
Even though Brady is one of the highest-paid sportsmen in the world, he has talked about retirement often. He mentioned that he wouldn’t set a retirement date, but he has thought about it.
He confessed that while he could feel the toll the sport was taking on his body, he wanted to give it everything he’s got while he could still play. He also mentioned that he realized he didn’t have five years left.
However, the fight between Brady and Bündchen began when Brady talked about the most challenging part of parenting. Brady mentioned that his money made parenting difficult.
When talking about how his wealth affected their parenting, Brady confessed:
“We have people that clean for us. We have people that make our food. We have people that drive us to the airport if we need that. … We get off a plane, and there are people waiting there for us, and we get ushered in.”
Brady said he wanted his children to have more normal experiences than they were. He wanted his children to know how other people lived and that not everybody was offered the same opportunities.
Brady Announced He Wouldn’t Retire
Brady recently sent out a tweet that caused an “epic fight” between the couple. He shared two photos. One of the photos was of himself playing, and the other was of his wife and children at one of his games.
The tweet was captioned saying that he was not retiring from the sport. He had a brief retirement before this but decided to return. He was in retirement for two months.
Bündchen was shocked by the tweet as she did not expect her husband to return to the sport after his short retirement. It caused heated arguments between the pair, as reported by sources close to the couple.

Soon after the arguments began, Bündchen moved out of the family home, and the pair have been living separately ever since. It has also been reported that the couple has hired divorce lawyers among their marriage woes. A source said:
“Tom and Gisele have recently struggled to make their marriage work and have grown apart.”
Sources close to the couple admitted that people close to them would never have thought this argument would be the end of their relationship, but it seemed like it was.

They have a multi-million dollar fortune between them, and they are now dividing it up. The source said they both have lawyers now and are looking at who will get what.
Bündchen was also seen out in Miami working out, but while her outfit was impeccable and her physique enviable, the thin gold band she usually wears on her wedding ring finger was not seen.
Bündchen and Brady’s Children
Brady’s eldest child is the son he shares with his ex-wife, Bridget Moynahan. John “Jack” Edward Thomas. He shares two children, Benjamin Rein and Vivian Lake, with Bündchen.

While Bündchen and Brady had to learn how to co-parent with his ex-wife, they did it well and worked out a plan between them. Brady also had to make adjustments to his working schedule to be able to spend time with his children
Brady shared his thoughts about putting his family before his career; he mentioned:
“I love my family so much, and I love what I do for a living so much [that] I never, ever want to take those things for granted, and I really try to treasure every second.”

He also mentioned that his priorities had changed over the years, and he realized that when he was 25, all he thought about was his sport, but as he got older, he knew that his family was more important than his job.
Brady and Jack have much in common; most importantly, they have football. Jack started as a Buccaneer’s ball boy, and Brady said that Jack took the job “very seriously.”
He also said that he and Jack would often practice football together. He also said that he had started encouraging his child to pursue football and that he would be a starting quarterback for Michigan.

Benjamin Rein, three years younger than his elder brother, was born via a home birth in December 2009. Brady shared the homebirth experience saying:
“Me being there with G at his birth in our home, it lives in my mind. I think we brought this boy into the world in the most precious way.”
And while the two boys aren’t too far apart in age, they are very different in their personalities. Brady revealed that his youngest son is not interested in sports, which was difficult for him to accept.

He mentioned that as a sportsperson, it was difficult for him to understand why his son wouldn’t participate in sports, but he said that his son loved making jokes and enjoyed his father’s jokes.
Brady’s only daughter, Vivian Lake, was born in December 2012. When she was born, Brady mentioned that he felt good about having a daughter because he grew up with three sisters and knew it was important for his sons to know what it was like to have a sister.

However, as she grew up, Brady revealed that he had difficulty disciplining his daughter. He mentioned:
“That little girl owns my day — owns my life. [I] cannot say no to anything. Whatever she tells her dad to do, that’s what I do. That’s just the way it goes.”
Vivian also cheers her father on at his games and supports him during all his endeavors. She has often been seen at his games but also shares interests with her mom, like yoga.
