Tom Brady broke cover for the first time since announcing his divorce from his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen as he took his kids to the movies in Florida.
The NFL star, 45, kept it casual with a gray sweatshirt, white jeans, and a camouflaged duffle bag, alongside his children Vivian, nine, and Benjamin, 12.
His children also enjoyed a laid-back style, sporting slip-on shoes and baggy clothes.
The family trio went to see a show at the CMX CineBistro in Hyde Park Florida on Friday evening.
The newly single dad seemed solemn and quiet as the family traveled back to their car after the show.
He and Gisele, his wife of 13 years, confirmed their divorce on Friday after weeks of speculation, following reports the pair living separately.
They both announced the split was ‘amicable,’ but the quarterback admitted it had been ‘difficult’ and ‘painful’ to split from his wife.
It has been claimed Gisele was angered by quarterback Brady’s decision to ‘un-retire’ from the NFL after helping the Tampa Bay Bucs clinch the 2021 Super Bowl – his seventh win.
Gisele said she ‘wishes the best’ for Brady but confirmed the pair had ‘grown apart.’
‘I feel blessed for the time we had together and only wish the best for Tom always,’ she said.
Both said they would continue to co-parent their two children together.’

For weeks, speculation has mounted that the pair were divorcing as a result of Brady’s decision to go back to work.
He announced his retirement in February, but then reversed it a weeks later.
Brady initially quit his football career, in part, to focus on his family.
Gisele, who largely put her modeling career on the back burner in order to travel with Brady and live with him and their children in Boston, was widely rumored to have been disappointed by the decision.
In recent weeks, she has been spotted meeting with spiritual healers in Miami and in September, she told ELLE: ‘Now it’s my turn.’
She spoke of wanting to produce a travel series and donate to environmental causes, likening her modelling ascension and then quiet descent into motherhood as like climbing a mountain and then walking into a valley.
The pair claim to have reached an agreement on how to divide their $700 million empire which includes three homes and multiple businesses.
In an interview with ELLE in September she said: ‘I feel very fulfilled, as a mother and as a wife.
‘And now it’s going to be my turn. I’ve done my part, which is [to] be there for [Tom].
‘I moved to Boston, and I focused on creating a cocoon and a loving environment for my children to grow up in and to be there supporting him and his dreams.
‘Seeing my children succeed and become the beautiful little humans that they are, seeing him succeed, and being fulfilled in his career—it makes me happy.
‘At this point in my life, I feel like I’ve done a good job on that. I have a huge list of things that I have to do, that I want to do.

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen confirmed their divorce in Instagram statements on Friday. She said her priority had ‘always been’ the children, but said the pair had ‘grown apart’. In his statement, Brady said the decision was ‘painful and difficult’
‘At 42, I feel more connected with my purpose.’ She had also shared her fears over her husband’s health.
‘Obviously, I have my concerns—this is a very violent sport, and I have my children and I would like him to be more present.
‘I have definitely had those conversations with him over and over again. ‘But ultimately, I feel that everybody has to make a decision that works for [them]. ‘He needs to follow his joy, too,’ she said.
In 2020, Brady described how his work had come between them in the past.
During an appearance on the Howard Stern Show, Tom told how the pair had struggled in their marriage.
‘There was a couple years ago, she didn’t feel I was doing my part for the family.
‘She felt like I would play football all season and she would take care of the house and then all the sudden when the season would end, that I’d be like, “Great, let me get into all my other business activities. Let me get into my football training.”
‘She wasn’t satisfied with our marriage, and I needed to make a change in that.
‘Her point was, “Of course this works for you … but it doesn’t work for me”.
‘I had to check myself. Because she was like, “I have my goals and dreams too,”‘ he said.
In February 2021, after his seventh Super Bowl win, Gisele – it seemed – had had enough.
She asked Brady: ‘What else do you have to prove?’ on the field following the win.

Gisele had fully embraced his decision to leave the sport, often worrying he’d get hurt as the oldest player, and even wrote a gushing tribute post about it when he announced it.
‘What a ride! So many memories! When I met you over 15 years ago, I didn’t know the first thing about football.
‘But cheering for you and seeing you do what you love most made me learn about this wonderful game to the point that I seriously believed I knew more than the referees!
‘We always had a special champions playlist for every drive on our way to the game.
‘As a family, we always prayed for you, celebrated and supported you in every game, cheered every win and suffered with every loss.
‘I know how excited you are about the next chapter of your life. ‘
‘Watching you work so hard in your football career and seeing the dedication you are now putting into all your new endeavors is incredibly inspiring.
‘There is nothing you can’t achieve. I have always been here for you, you know that, and I’m as excited as you are for what the future holds!’
Forty days later, Brady announced his comeback. ‘These past two months, I’ve realized my place is on the field and not in the stands.
‘That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family.
‘They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. Unfinished business LFG.’
Gisele said nothing publicly of the decision.

Speculation into their divorce sparked when his now ex-wife was didn’t show up to his Tampa Bay Buccaneers games, like she had in the past. His children have attended some of the games this season.
More speculation came about after they halted the construction on their Florida mansion ahead of Hurricane Ian’s landfall.
The two had aimed to build a forever home in Miami’s Indian Creek Country Club community for themselves and their children.
The total cost of the house is set to be near $30 million, as they paid $17 million for the land and an additional $10.12million in construction costs for the custom mansion, according to the Post.
The area is dubbed ‘Billionaire’s Bunker’ because of the sheer number of celebrities and high rollers in the vicinity, including Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
The mega-home is still being built underway, despite the split.
The couple also owns property in New York City, Montana and Costa Rica, where they have vacationed for years.
It was also recently revealed that Gisele $1.25million Miami ‘cottage’ in February – two weeks before Brady announced his wasn’t going to retire and months before their divorce was announced.
She purchased the three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom property near Miami Beach on February 28.
According to the New York Post, Gisele, who purchased the home via an LLC, then submitted paperwork to begin remodeling the ‘charming Art Deco-style cottage’, which was approved on June 10. Her name is the only one on the documents.

Tom and Gisele’s net worth’s: How the two stars earned millions from their careers even before they got together
By Charlie Lankston, Femail editor
Before getting married, both Tom and Gisele had already launched major careers for themselves, with Gisele working as a successful model and Tom becoming one of the most acclaimed footballers in the country.
Born in Brazil, Gisele was discovered by Elite Model Management at a shopping mall when she was just 13; the company then invited her to compete in its Elite Model Look contest, where she came in second place.
The fashion icon made her modeling debut at New York Fashion week in 1996, but for two years after that she struggled to book another job.
However, her lucky break came in 1998 when she was cast in an Alexander McQueen runway show. Following that, she was propelled into stardom practically over night, and went on to star in campaigns for Dolce & Gabanna, Valentino, Ralph Lauren, and Versace, and walk the catwalk for Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Christian Dior, more big brands all within three years.
Throughout the early 2000s, Gisele’s career continued to flourish. She appeared on a whopping 37 international Vogue covers, including three for the US version of the outlet, and she also posed for W, Allure, GQ, Forbes, Marie Claire, Time, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, and Esquire.

On top of that, the model also signed a five-year contract with Victoria’s Secret in 2000 for $25 million, and dove into acting – starring in the 2004 remake of the movie Taxi and appearing in the popular 2006 flick The Devil Wears Prada.
As for Tom, originally from California, he graduated from the University of Michigan in 1999, and was drafted by the New England Patriots in 2000. He became the team’s starting quarterback during his second season, which saw the Patriots win their first Super Bowl.
In 2006, while her work as a model was coming in fast and he was soaring in the NFL, the two started dating after they were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend; and neither of their careers slowed down once they got together.

The former couple got married in 2009 during an intimate ceremony in Santa Monica, California, before they jetted off to Costa Rica to celebrate with a lavish party attended by a slew of famous faces.
One year into their romance, Forbes named Gisele as the World’s Richest Supermodel. She launched her own line of flip-flop line with Ipanema in 2010, and it was reported at the time that she sold more than 250 million pairs – earning her an estimated $197 million.
She also started her own eco-friendly skin care line, called Sejaa Pure Skincare, and in 2013, she became the face of Chanel’s makeup line Les Beiges and Pantene’s ambassador – in a deal that reportedly paid her $4 million.
Over the years, Gisele also released a memoir, called Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life, in 2018, which landed a spot on the New York Times bestseller list.
In recent years, the star had largely put her modeling career on the back burner in order to travel with Tom while he pursued NFL stardom. Even so, according to Celebrity Net Worth, she is now worth roughly $400 million from all her endeavors.
As for Tom, he lead the Patriots to 17 division titles, 13 AFC Championship Games, nine Super Bowl appearances, and six Super Bowl wins during his 19 seasons with the team
The football pro, who switched to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020 and helped them win the Super Bowl in 2021, now holds nearly every major quarterback record including passing yards, completions, touchdown passes, and games started; he is also the NFL leader in: career quarterback wins, quarterback regular season wins, quarterback playoff wins, and Super Bowl MVP awards.
Celebrity Net Worth reported that he makes $30 million annually from the NFL, and that his total net worth is around $250 million, while a conflicting report from Spotrac stated that his net worth is closer to $333 million.
