Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen have divorced after 13 years of marriage, the NFL star revealed on his Instagram Friday.
Brady said that he and Bündchen had “finalized” their divorce in recent days.
“We arrived at this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time we spent together. We are blessed with beautiful and wonderful children who will continue to be the center of our world in every way. We will continue to work together as parents to always ensure they receive the love and attention they deserve,” Brady’s statement read in part.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers player concluded his statement by asking for “privacy and respect” for his family during the “painful and difficult” time.
According to People, the couple will have joint custody of their children: 12-year-old Benjamin, and 15-year-old Vivian.
Representatives for Brady and Bündchen didn’t immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
The NFL player and Bündchen first began dating in 2006, around the same time that Brady welcomed a son with ex Bridget Moynahan. Bündchen and Brady later tied the knot in 2009.
Reports earlier this year suggested that Bündchen was unhappy with Brady’s decision to return to professional football after a brief retirement.
