“We arrived at this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time we spent together,” Brady’s statement read. “We are blessed with beautiful and wonderful children who will continue to be the center of our world in every way. We will continue to work together as parents to always ensure they receive the love and attention they deserve.”

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers player concluded his statement by asking for “privacy and respect” for his family during the “painful and difficult” time.
Bündchen shared a similar statement to her Instagram stories on Friday morning as well.
“With much gratitude for our time together, Tom and I have amicably finalized our divorce. My priority has always been and will continue to be our children whom I love with all my heart,” the model wrote in her message. “We will continue co-parenting to give them the love, care and attention they greatly deserve.”
Bündchen said that “the decision to end a marriage is never easy but we have grown apart” and wished Brady well. She concluded her message by reiterating the family’s desire for privacy.
According to People, the couple will have joint custody of their children: 12-year-old Benjamin, and 9-year-old Vivian.
Representatives for Brady didn’t immediately respond to Tausi Insider’s requests for comment. When reached by email, a representative for Bündchen instructed Tausi Insider to view the model’s statement on Instagram.
The NFL player and Bündchen first began dating in 2006, around the same time that Brady welcomed a son with ex Bridget Moynahan. Bündchen and Brady later tied the knot in 2009.
Reports earlier this year suggested that Bündchen was unhappy with Brady’s decision to return to professional football after a brief retirement.
