Gisele Bundchen “wasn’t satisfied” with her marriage to Tom Brady a couple of years ago because she believed he was prioritising his career over their family.
The American football player recalled the couple’s rocky patch during an interview with Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show, and said the Brazilian supermodel was frustrated over his behaviour.
“There was a couple years ago, she didn’t feel I was doing my part for the family,” the former New England Patriots quarterback explained. “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.’ And she’s sitting there going, ‘Well, when are you going to do things for the house? When are you going to take the kids to school and do that?'”
Tom revealed that Gisele had written him a note in which she expressed her concern over his lack of participation in their family life.
“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 added, confessing that he still has the note and reads it from time to time.
The couple, who wed in 2009 after dating for almost three years, share son Benjamin, 10, and seven-year-old daughter Vivian.
