With every end comes a new beginning! Following the legendary Brady-Bündchen divorce, both parties seem to be thriving ‘stress-free.’ The agenda of, “when one door closes, another opens,” as the Brazilian supermodel said in her interview with CBS News Sunday Morning, seems to be the highlight of the ex-couple’s coping mechanism.

Brady remains close to football, however, experiencing it from an alternative perspective, which includes his $37 million dollar contract with Fox Sports for assuming the role of lead NFL analyst from 2024. The 43-year-old fashion model, activist, and entrepreneur, who took a break from her modeling career in 2015 to prioritize her family, marked her ‘comeback’ by headlining the ‘iconic’ ‘Victoria’s Secret’ lingerie line campaign. She further shared a legendary personal record in a recent Instagram Story that also binds the two legends by an unconventional thread.

Divorce opens new doors for ex-couple Brady and Bündchen

“Sometimes you grow together; sometimes you grow apart,” says Bündchen reflecting on the change that has marked both her relationship and their personalities as individuals. But even after separating after eleven long years, she chooses to look on the brighter side of things. Which includes moving to the sunny state of Miami, with her two children. She is living her best life which constitutes spending ample time outdoors, and with the children, focusing on wellness, nutrition, and meditation. 

Meanwhile, Brady is doing well for himself too. The 46-year-old former NFL quarterback revealed on his weekly Sirius XM podcast titled “Let’s Go! With Tom Brady,” co-hosted by Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray that, “I’m down about 10 lbs., but I’m actually very fit right now.” He attributes the loss of weight to, “I haven’t had the stress that I had while I was playing so that’s allowed me to focus a little bit more on my physical health.”
