In an emotionally charged revelation, Gisele Bündchen opened up about her challenging journey following her split from NFL legend Tom Brady. Nearly two years after their separation, the supermodel shared her heartache and the personal growth she's experienced since ending their 13-year marriage in 2022.

This candid disclosure came to light in a preview for Bündchen's much-anticipated interview with IMPACT x Nightline. During a poignant moment with Robin Roberts of Good Morning America, Bündchen was overcome with emotion.

Struggling to maintain her composure, she requested a brief pause, illustrating the depth of her feelings regarding the breakup. "Sorry, guys. I didn't know. Can I have a little moment?" she asked, momentarily stepping away from the camera.

The announcement of their divorce in October 2022 followed persistent speculations about the stability of their relationship. In the interview, Bündchen not only addresses the dissolution of her marriage but also shares insights into her life as a single parent to son Benjamin, 14, daughter Vivian, 11, and stepson Jack, 16, whom she co-parents with the former Patriots star.

Single Parenthood Challenges

Acknowledging the ups and downs of single parenthood, Bündchen expressed, "There's easier days than others. I can only control what I do." When probed about reentering the dating scene, particularly in light of rumors linking her to trainer Joaquim Valente, she chose her words carefully, offering a contemplative "Umm." Despite the upheaval of the past few years as Bündchen and Brady navigate their new co-parenting arrangement, the runway icon harbors no regrets about their time together.

Reflecting on her life choices and their shared history, she told CBS News Sunday Morning in September, "I look into my life, and I wouldn't have it any other way. If they say, 'You can change something in your life?' I wouldn't change absolutely anything." Brady, for his part, has shown appreciation for Bündchen, especially in her role as a mother.

In a heartfelt Mother's Day Instagram post last May, he extended his gratitude, highlighting her exemplary influence on their children. "Thank you all for your love, compassion and kindness, and for setting such an amazing example for all of our little ones," he wrote. "We are all so grateful for your support and helping us all achieve our dreams."
