Tom Brady is one of the most celebrated athletes of all time. The 44-year-old quarterback had a remarkable tenure with the New England Patriots, skyrocketing to celebrity status while winning six Super Bowl rings in Boston.
The undisputed ?Greatest of All Time? has accumulated a fortune throughout his playing career in the NFL, amassing more than $260 million in salary across his 21 years on the gridiron. And while most would assume an income like that would make Brady the breadwinner in his relationship, that isn?t the case.
Tom Brady?s wife Gisele Bündchen, a Brazilian supermodel, is reported to have a net worth of a staggering $400 million from her career in modeling. Astonishingly, her net worth is almost twice as large as that of her husband.
While Brady has spent the past two decades in the spotlight of New England’s sports world, Bündchen has long been a dominant force on behalf off this year. Her rise to fame came when she became highest paid model after marrying Patriots’ star TomBrady back in 2012 – three years ago!
According to Forbes, Bündchen made over $45 million in 2012 alone, and she once again took home over $40 million from her modeling work in 2013. She’s been on thousands of magazine covers for outlets like Vogue, Marie Claire, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar and Cosmopolitan.
How did these two love birds meet?

Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bündchen married in February 2009 with two ceremonies held one year after they first met on a blind date because of mutual friends at Turks & Frog Wine Bar in New York City.
The couple has been together for six years and they have never looked back. They continue to ascend the world of fame, but things could be different had they not linked up in 2006 especially considering how well-renowned this quarterback’s dating past is?
Prior to marrying his Brazilian model wife, Brady was at work morphing the Pats into arguably one of the most dominant dynasties in NFL history under coach Bill Belichick. And while he was wowing fans on ESPN and getting results as quarterback for New England Patriots; TB12 had other things up his sleeve too.
Tom Brady’s First Wife & Ex Bridget Moynahan
Back in 2002, it was reported that Brady had a fling with 1997?s Playboy?s Playmate of the Year, Layla Roberts. The relationship didn?t last very long, and Roberts ended up marrying John Hilsinki in 2004.
Shortly after, Brady was rumored to have had a month-long romance with actress Tara Reid. Reid, while appearing on KIIS 1065?s “Kyle and Jackie O” radio show, admitted that she and Brady shared a kiss back in 2002.
Brady?s most renowned previous relationship (apart from his marriage to Gisele) was with Blue Bloods actress Bridget Moynahan. The pair were together from 2004-2006 and, somewhat controversially, have a child together, John Edward Thomas Moynahan. He goes by Jack.
The 44-year-old is also rumored to have had flings with a few other notable women in the past, including former Patriots cheerleader Meghan Vasconcellos, Ivanka Trump and Britney Spears. Believe what you want, though.
Gisele Bündchen Dating History
Tom Terrific was spotted with several notable figures during his time as a bachelor, but the same can certainly be said for model Gisele Bündchen, who’s done work for high-profile brands like Louis Vuitton and Chanel.
Prior to meeting Brady, Bündchen, who is from Brazil, was famously in a five-year relationship with superstar Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio from 2000-2005 before they parted ways. Bündchen discussed her relationship and eventual breakup with DiCaprio in her autobiography, “Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life,” which is available on Amazon.
After DiCaprio, the former Victoria’s Secret model was in a short relationship with professional surfer Kelly Slater from 2005-2006.
Also before she and Brady were introduced in New York, Bündchen had a short-lived fling with actor Chris Evans, renowned for his role as “Captain America,” in 2006.
Tom Brady’s Kids
While both Brady and Gisele were enjoying the bachelor life, the power couple eventually settled down together, and now have two children, son Benjamin Rein, 11, and daughter Vivian Lake, 8. They both call him “Papai,” which means “dad” in Gisele’s native language of Portugese.
The Brady family is well-known for posting pictures and videos on social media of themselves during the NFL offseason. They offer glimpses into their home life, including experiences with coronavirus pandemic and COVID-19 outbreak in 2018
This shows how much Tom appreciates his wife Gisele while he awaits another football season at Gillette Stadium!
Despite the six-time Super Bowl champion and one of the world’s highest paid models having been spotted with in past, he has now happily married to Bündchen for 12 years.
Despite there being ups and downs along their relationship roadblocks as cited by Brady when Howard Stern asked him about his most memorable fight scene on air just last year 2020; however they continue stay strong despite these challenges!
The power couple is primed to enter retirement together when the NFL quarterback eventually ends his career following a two-year $50 million contract with Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The newlyweds are not only happy in their relationship but also appear satisfied at what they have achieved so far and look forward towards new challenges that await them both on top of each other’s shoulders!
The Super Bowl LIII winner turned the Bucs into a playoff team in his first year as head coach of the Miami Dolphins, beat Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers on CBS and won it all for them with another championship against Patrick Mahomes.
It’s still weird to not be calling him “Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.” How many more Super Bowl wins does the NFL star have in him? That depends how long the best quarterback in NFL history plans on playing.
