It’s official. According to reports, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen have reached an agreement focusing on their previously reported intention to separate, with the couple’s official divorce proceedings taking place in Florida on Friday.
According to a source quoted in a People report, a settlement between the two – who first married in 2009 and share two children together – has been “all worked out”. According to this same source, Brady and Bündchen have reached a joint custody agreement.
TMZ also reported on the development of Friday’s filing. As some may recall, the outlet previously informed the world that Brady and Bündchen were living apart following the former’s so-called non-retirement. Following an initial report that the documents were due to be filed on Friday, TMZ shared another in which it was revealed that Bündchen had indeed filed said documents.
Shortly after the news broke, Brady and Bündchen shared statements about their high-profile split on Instagram.
“We have come to this decision to end our marriage after careful consideration,” Brady wrote in his statement. “It is, of course, painful and difficult, as it is for many people who go through the same thing every day around the world. »
In his statement, Bündchen echoed Brady’s own comments that the decision was made amicably, and reiterated a plea for privacy for the two of them as they move forward with co-parenting.
“The decision to end a marriage is never easy, but we have separated and while of course it is difficult to go through something like this, I feel blessed for the time we have spent together and I always wish Tom the best,” she wrote.
