Gisele Spoke From The Heart For The World To See

After such a long career in the spotlight, it's difficult to picture Tom Brady doing anything other than playing football. But that will now be the new reality for one of sports' greatest ever legends. His wife, Gisele Bündchen broke her silence on Brady's retirement, sharing a heartfelt post paying tribute to Brady.

Gisele's statement was very heartfelt and to the point: 

"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!"

She went on with more kind words for her husband's legacy: "You are the most dedicated, focused and mentally tough person I have ever met. You never once complained over the years about all the bruises and aches and pains."

Brady will be remembered for his record Super Bowl rings, as well as for being the most successful quarterback in the history of the game. But all great things must come to an end eventually.

Whatever the future holds for the couple, it looks like they'll be going stronger than ever before, and we wish them all the luck in their new adventures together!
