Tom Brady Opens Up About Relationship with Children After Separation from Gisele Bündchen

Tom Brady and his ex-wife Gisele Bündchen are co-parenting their children after their divorce, and this summer, they will spend quality time with both their parents but separately.

In a new interview with PEOPLE Magazine, the retired athlete revealed his kids’ summer plans and said they have a ‘stacked summer ahead of them.’

“I’ve got my little calendar right here,” he told the outlet. “We’re going to Disneyland tomorrow to celebrate because it’s the last day of school. Then they’re going with their mom for a couple of weeks to Brazil.”

Tom and Gisele, who made headlines last year after announcing their bombshell divorce share two kids together – son Benjamin, 13, and daughter Vivian, 10.

The former football quarterback, who played in the National Football League for 23 seasons, said as soon as the kids return from their trip to Brazil, they will go to Europe with him.

“They got lots of good plans,” said Brady. “These kids have a really good summer lined up.”

“It’s interesting because there’s so much attached to their friends with their devices and so forth. But I think it’s always a balance between letting them do those things and staying connected with people from Boston and from Tampa and from Costa Rica and from Brazil,” he added.

The player added that although the children are already connected to their friends and relatives through their gadgets, it’s equally important to engage with people outside the electronic world and engage in physical activities for necessary balance.

“It’s very different than being in the northeast for all those years where we just didn’t have a lot of those types of activities,” he noted. “So I think now that there’s more of those things, I definitely find it enjoyable. I think they definitely enjoy their time out there for sure.”

Last year in October, the ex-couple shocked their fans by announcing their split after over twelve years of marriage. Bündchen hired a divorce lawyer after months of ‘tension’ between her and Brady.

“Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen seem to be heading for the end zone: Both have retained divorce lawyers,” Page Six reported.

“As previously revealed, the couple has been living separately for the past couple of months following an epic fight — and they’re now apparently looking at dividing up their multimillion-dollar empire.”

According to a source, this was the ‘end of their relationship,’ and there would be no ‘going back.’

“I never actually thought this argument would be the end of them, but it looks like it is. I don’t think there will be any coming back now. They both have lawyers and are looking at what a split will entail, who gets what and what the finances will be.”

PEOPLE reported that the fashion model was unhappy with Brady’s return to the Buccaneers.

“She was so happy when he announced his retirement, and she wasn’t thrilled at all when he went back on that.”

In another recent interview with ET, Brady opened up about co-parenting their children after his split with the Brazilian model and discussed the struggles that come along.

“I think for me, when you decide to have children, that’s a big undertaking, and I don’t think you take it lightly. And I think these kids that come up under your roof, you want to provide them with values, so that when they move forward in their life, they have a real solid base and foundation,” he told ET in an online interview.

“And I think myself and their mom have done an amazing job of providing that, and I think that we’re just gonna keep doing it.”

He continued, “We’re never a finished product. The kids aren’t finished products. At the end of the day, we’re learning along with them. And all you can do is the best you can do with the opportunities that you have, and the challenges you have, and we all have unique challenges to our life that we deal with.”

The iconic footballer, who also shares another 15-year-old son with his ex-partner Bridget Moynahan said he is no stranger to the dynamics of co-parenting as he has been doing that for years now.

“There’s no guidebook to life. A lot of the things that happen in your life are the first time. You don’t know how to say always the appropriate thing or the right thing, but the only thing you can do for your kids is to try and say, ‘All right, guys, this is kinda the way that it’s worked for me, and the things that I’ve learned from, and now it’s up to you, you gotta take it,’” the former star quarterback continued.

‘“Now, you’ve got choices outside of the house … go out there and do well in the community, respect everyone, respect others. Go out there and make a contribution and find something you love to do. Bring a positive attitude.’”
