This Thanksgiving will be Tom Bray’s first without Gisele Bündchen after their marriage. Brady and Bündchen decided to part ways after he unretired from the NFL. Bündchen wanted Brady to focus on his family rather than football, where he has nothing left to achieve. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB retired after the 2021 season. But he came out of retirement in just over a month. The next step was divorce.
