In an interview with Elle magazine in September, Bundchen expressed her concerns about Brady continuing to play because of the violent nature of the game but said, “Ultimately, I feel that everybody has to make a decision that works for [them]. He needs to follow his joy too.”

She also said that after years of supporting Brady and tending to their family, “Now it’s going to be my turn.”

“I’ve done my part, which is to be there for him,” Bundchen said. “I moved to Boston and I focused on creating a cocoon and a loving environment for my children to grow up in and to be there supporting him and his dreams.”

In his 23rd season, Brady is chasing his eighth Super Bowl title and his second in Tampa Bay. However, the Bucs are second in the NFC South at 3-5 and have lost three straight games.
