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.

Gisele Bundchen has urged her followers to remain “calm and positive” as they self-isolate due to the coronavirus crisis.

The Brazilian supermodel, who lives in America, where many states have implemented social distancing measures in a bid to curb the spread of Covid-19, posted a lengthy message to her followers on Instagram to instruct them to follow government protocols to help protect each other and potentially save lives.

“We need community thinking. Think about it – it could be your father, mother, grandmother or someone you know that is most at risk. It is important that we act in solidarity and that we act in the best interest of our common society,” she wrote on Tuesday.

Gisele, who is currently on holiday in Costa Rica, then encouraged her fans to remain as upbeat as possible about the situation.

“We cannot let fear and anxiety consume our minds. These feelings generate stress and stress lowers our immune system and our ability to fight infections and viruses,” the 39-year-old continued. “We must instead take care of ourselves and also try our best to help those who are most at risk by supporting them and their basic needs. We have to try and remain calm, positive and continue to support each other… We’re all in this together.”

Gisele concluded her post by thanking healthcare employees who have been “working tirelessly” amid the pandemic.

On Tuesday, the model’s husband, American football star Tom Brady, announced he was leaving his team, the New England Patriots, after 20 years.

In a comment under his announcement on Instagram, Gisele wrote, “So much gratitude for all the wonderful experiences and friendships we had in beautiful New England this past few years.”

Reports suggest the sportsman will sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Florida.

Gisele Bundchen dislikes it when people refer to her as a “stepmom”.

The Brazilian supermodel’s husband, Tom Brady, shares a son named John with his ex, actress Bridget Moynahan.

But in a series of videos posted during a Q&A on her Instagram Stories, Gisele opened up about her blended family, and when asked by one follower how it feels “being a stepmom”, she confessed that she doesn’t like using that term to describe her relationship with the 12-year-old.

“I don’t like the word ‘stepmom,'” Gisele explained. “I like the word ‘bonus mom’ because I feel like it’s a blessing in my life. I feel so lucky that I got to have an extra wonderful little angel in my life.”

The former Victoria’s Secret Angel wed the New England Patriots quarterback in 2009, and the couple is also parents to son Benjamin, 10, and seven-year-old daughter Vivian.

Gisele insisted there was no “secret recipe” to juggling her busy workload and her family, but revealed that she simply tries to be present with her children as much as she can.

“I think we just try our best to be present with the kids when we are with the kids,” she shared. “I think it’s not so much (about) the amount of time. I think it’s the quality of time.”

The 39-year-old added that neither she nor Tom raise their voices to their three kids, and instead lavish them with cuddles and kisses.

“I think what’s really important as well, is the energy that is around the children,” Gisele stated. “I think they really see how much we love each other and how much we support each other.”

Camille Kostek has been named as the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue rookie.

The Connecticut-born model, a former dancer and New England Patriots cheerleader, participated in the first-ever Instagram-based search for the U.S. publication last year (17) and walked in a fashion show at Miami Swim Week.

Now, Camille has been tapped as a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, and she couldn’t be more thrilled to have landed the sought-after gig.

“This time last year I was shooting for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2018 in Belize as one of the final 6 finalists for #SIswimsearch,” she posted on her social media pages on Tuesday (23Oct18). “My bags are packed as I head to South Australia as not only a 2019 official Rookie, but as the first up to shoot for the @si_swimsuit 2019 issue!! My excitement will never dull for each time I pack my bags to work with this team. I’ve told you 100 times and I’ll say it again and again…. Chase your dreams my friends, it’s a feeling that makes you feel alive on the journey and complete euphoria once you get there. IT’S GO TIME.”

In addition to posing for photographer Josie Clough for the photoshoot, Camille has also shot a video with her boyfriend, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, giving a glimpse into their lives and workout regimes.

And the 26-year-old model hopes that as a Sports Illustrated model she will be able to use her platform to encourage women to “love their bodies” and embrace their beauty.

“I was a dancer, so I always loved watching girls perform and dance and just always looked up to them and their bodies,” she previously told Sports Illustrated. “I remembered loving looking at JLo because she had a set of hips. And I think that’s what so cool about this day in age is that you do have that reach. Being an older sister and having been a young woman, it’s super cool for these women to reach out and share their insecurities or something that they want advice on and kind of being able to be their inspiration. That’s like the most fulfilling thing to ever hear.”

Gisele Bundchen’s quarterback husband is more into fashion than her

Gisele Bundchen reckons her American football player husband Tom Brady is a bigger fashion fan than she is.

The supermodel was one of the first Brazilians to achieve international success in the industry, having walked the catwalk for the likes of Dior, Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino.

Working with the biggest fashion names means Gisele knows her stuff when it comes to style, but in spite of her expertise, Tom has never needed any fashion advice from his wife.

“I’ve never in my life told him to wear anything,” she said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. “You should see our closets… It’s so funny. I would say that he likes fashion more than I like fashion. I would say he’s changed his haircut in one year more than I’ve changed in my whole life.”

Gisele married the New England Patriots quarterback in 2009, and they’re proud parents to eight-year-old son Benjamin and daughter Vivian, five. The model is also stepmother to Tom’s son John, 10, from his previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.

During her chat with the publication, 37-year-old Gisele later shared that, in spite of her killer body, she is partial to the occasional sweet treat, and the whole family have developed a love for Dunkin’ Donuts since Tom suggested they bring a box to Benjamin’s hockey practice.

“It’s become a thing that we bring it,” she explained. “Do you know those things called Munchkins (Donut Holes)? Oh, my God. I cannot have one (Munchkin). I have to have, like, 10. They’re so tiny… it’s a guilty pleasure.”

The fashion icon also insisted that she’d never force Tom to retire from playing in the National Football League (NFL), even though she admits the dangerous sport does cause her concerns for his health.

“He has a laser focus on just winning and being the best, and I said, ‘You know what? This is what you’re doing right now in your life, and you need to feel complete in it,'” she said.

New Star Wars and Mission: Impossible trailers drop during Super Bowl

Sports fans got a glimpse of some of Hollywood’s hottest new movies during the 2018 Super Bowl on Sunday (04Feb18).

While American football followers tuned in to see the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots, they were also bombarded with commercials as advertisers took advantage of the prime time slots on offer.

Among the celebrity-fronted adverts, including Morgan Freeman and Peter Dinklage for Mountain Dew and Doritos, trailers for Solo: A Star Wars Story, Mission: Impossible – Fallout and The Cloverfield Paradox also dropped.

Star Wars fans appeared delighted with the 45-second clip of the forthcoming origin flick, which stars Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo and Joonas Suotamo as his buddy Chewbacca.

“When you’re in a room full of #patriots fans who couldn’t give a s**t about the commercials but the #SoloAStarWarsStory commercial comes on so you scream “shut the f**k up” at the top of your lungs,” one film fan tweeted gleefully, while another wrote: “No matter the era or the actors…there’s always something perfect about seeing Chewbacca and Han Solo side by side #SoloAStarWarsStory.”

Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, and Donald Glover also starred in the high octane clip, with the film hitting cinemas from May.

And Tom Cruise revved up the action with his latest Mission: Impossible movie. Tom will be back as Ethan Hunt for the sixth time in July, with his Impossible Missions Force (IMF) team Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames joining him, as well as familiar faces Rebecca Ferguson and Michelle Monaghan. Angela Bassett, Vanessa Kirby, and Henry Cavill also appeared in the trailer.

And not long after The Cloverfield Paradox trailer aired, the hashtag #CloverfieldParadox quickly began trending, no doubt thanks to the fact the movie was streamed on Netflix straight after the advert dropped.

The film boasts an A-list cast, including Daniel Bruhl, David Oyelowo, and Elizabeth Debicki, with J.J. Abrams acting as producer.
