Supermodel Gisele Bundchen has talked in detail for the first time about her new life in Miami following the divorce from former husband Tom Brady.
The model and NFL superstar split up recently after they drifted apart and had disagreements over the latter stages of his career at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Speaking to People, she explained how happy she is in her new surroundings and with her newfound independence.
“I am loving Miami. I love the sunshine and people are very warm and welcoming, it feels like home,” said Bundchen after Saturday’s Luz Alliance Gala in Miami to benefit the Brazil Foundation.
She helped to raise almost one million dollars at the event which will go towards reforestation efforts back in Brazil, her home country.
“I am very active, and Miami is all about being outside, so I really enjoy that,” she added. “It also is easier to go to Brazil from here, so my sisters [twin Patricia and sisters Rafaela, Graziela, Gabriela and Raquel] come visit a lot more now which makes me so happy.”
The kids are settling in
Bundchen and Brady divorced in October and their two children, Benjamin and Vivian, seem to be coping okay with things.
“The kids are loving Miami too. Vivi is passionate about horses and is very into jumping right now,” Bundchen said.
“We all love to do jiu-jitsu which is so great to build self-confidence,” she continued. “We also love being outdoors and enjoy jumping together on our big trampoline we have in our yard. We also love paddle boarding and kayaking, it is so much fun to just be doing things together.”
