Gisele Bündchen has “blossomed” since her split from Tom Brady

Brady and Bündchen separated in October 2022, following a 13-year marriage.

Gisele Bündchen’s life is going well right now.

According to an insider, the 43-year-old supermodel has “blossomed” since her divorce from ex-husband Tom Brady.

The insider claimed that she is “so busy with her life and so secure and happy that she doesn’t have time to dwell on the negatives out there.”

13 years of marriage later, in October 2022, the former couple announced their divorce. The former couple consented to share custody of their children, Vivian, age 11, and Benjamin, age 14. Brady, 46, and his former fiancée, actress Bridget Moynahan, are parents to a 16-year-old son named Jack.

Bündchen said she and the former NFL player “wanted different things” than when they first met in their 20s in an interview with Vanity Fair last year.

Bündchen clarified that while this “doesn’t mean you don’t love the person,” it “just means that you have to have somebody who can meet you in the middle, right?” If you want to be authentic and truly live the life you want to live, It’s a dance. It is in equilibrium.”

“You don’t put someone in jail and tell them you have to live this life when you love them,” the author of the Nourish cookbook continued. “You set them free to be who they are, and if you want to fly in the same direction, then that’s amazing.”

The most recent information about Bündchen was released after, despite rumors to the contrary, she was seen enjoying a romantic walk with her lover, Joaquim Valente, over the weekend.

The couple strolled their dogs together in Surfside, Florida on Saturday, June 15. Bündchen wore dark jeans and a white tank top, while her 36-year-old boyfriend, a jiu-jitsu coach, sported black pants and a blue T-shirt.

The two have a “close relationship, but not a serious love affair,” a source told PEOPLE.

In June 2023, the couple started dating. Benjamin, Bündchen’s kid, attended Valente’s jiu-jitsu academy, which is how they got to know each other.

“Joaquim is a wonderful man. In July, a PEOPLE insider described Valente as “down to earth, kind, and inspiring,” adding that the two’s friendship “turned romantic after her divorce from Brady.”

The insider continued, “She’s dated Joaquim in a very natural way.”

During an interview with Robin Roberts for “IMPACT x Nightline: Gisele Bündchen: Climbing the Mountain” earlier this year, Bündchen discussed her love life. She said, “Where my heart is now is where I am right now.” I’m not going to apologize for living my truth.
