Gisele shares candid never-seen-before photos of herself and Tom Brady on their 10-year anniversary
We may think of Tom Brady as the greatest NFL player of all time, winning six Super Bowls as the quarterback of the New England Patriots, but Gisele Bündchen thinks of him as the love of her life. They've been married 10 years now, and the couple took the time to share some adorable candids with herself and Brady. My heart's melting a little bit, you guys.
The couple took to Instagram to show off their abiding love for one another, and Gisele even shared never-before-seen photos of the two in the budding stages of their love, with a snap from their wedding a highlight. "I can’t believe it’s already been 10 years since we’ve chosen to walk this life together… and what incredible 10 years we’ve had!" Gisele said of her marriage to Tom Brady.
"There is nothing that I love more in this world than you and our family. Thank you for being on this journey with me and for doing the work that it takes to make it so special. May we continue growing together, walking side by side supporting and loving one another for many many years to come."
Getting emotional? No? Well wait, there's more to come; determined not to be left out, Tom Brady followed suit on his own Instagram account. Even though he's got six Super Bowl rings to show off, I get the feeling that the ring Brady's most proud of is the wedding band that signifies his love for Gisele.
"Ten years ago, I didn’t realize how much I could love you and the family we created together," Brady began in his own emotional Instagram post.
"My heart is so full and I am so blessed! I know our journey has not been easy, but the challenges we have overcome have made our bond stronger and our love grow deeper. Thank you for loving me, for supporting my dreams, and for nurturing our family in the way that only you could. You are my rock, my love and my light! I love you and I love our family!"
Sorry folks, I think I've got something in my eye. These two are really in love, aren't they?
What makes their 10-year marriage even more impressive is that Tom Brady and Gisele's relationship didn't quite start on the perfect note. Early into their courtship, Brady realised he was about to become a father... with a totally different woman.
Having dated Bridget Moynahan for two years, it was after two months of dating Gisele that he learned his ex was pregnant, but Gisele took it all in her stride, revealing her inner conflict in her book Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life.
"I felt my world had been turned upside down," wrote Gisele, who did not refer to Moynahan by name. "Needless to say, that wasn't an easy time. But it was a time that brought about so much growth."
That was in 2006, and in 2007, Jack was born. Gisele says the boy was a "huge gift and a blessing", and says it even affected their own family planning.
"With Jack in our lives, our priorities definitely started to shift. I wanted to be there for Jack and Tom, and do whatever I could to create stability in their lives, and help them to have a close relationship."
I don't know about you, but the way this power couple speaks about one another you can tell they really care for each other, and I wouldn't bet against Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen celebrating their 20-year anniversary a decade from now.
