It’s a milestone for Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, who celebrated their 10th anniversary earlier this week, y’all. Both Brady and Bündchen posted on Instagram on Tuesday with affectionate tributes to each other, sharing sentimental, previously unseen throwback photos of their wedding at St. Monica Catholic Church in Santa Monica, California, in 2009.
“I can’t believe it’s already been 10 years since we’ve chosen to walk this life together… and what incredible 10 years we’ve had! There is nothing that I love more in this world than you and our family,” Bündchen captioned a series of images. “Thank you for being on this journey with me and for doing the work that it takes to make it so special.”
She concluded, “May we continue growing together, walking side by side supporting and loving one another for many many years to come.”
Brady directed his message to his “#BossLady.” In the past, in an interview with Good Morning America, he had also referred to his wife as “his rock” and “his life partner.”
How did the two celebrate in real life, aside from the throwback photos? Although their actual wedding anniversary date is Feb. 26, PopSugar reported that the two were spotted on Feb. 21 on a high-profile date, with Brady rocking a black suit and Bündchen sporting a very bridal white Stella McCartney gown, at the Hollywood for Science Gala. Bündchen was being honored alongside Barbra Streisand for environmental activism. On the red carpet, Bündchen and Brady laughed and smooched between photos, and yeah, everyone could feel the love. The pair also recently celebrated Valentine’s Day with a hot beach date. We’re curious how they celebrated their actual anniversary — but that’s probably highly classified information.
The legendary New England Patriots quarterback and his supermodel wife have two children, Benjamin, 9, and Vivian, 6. Brady also shares a son — Jack, 11 — with his ex-girlfriend, actor Bridget Moynahan.
Although Bündchen and Brady began dating while he was still with Moynahan, it seems like the couple has moved on from their touch-and-go start, with both accepting that the love was just always there. For Bündchen, it was apparently love at first sight.
“We met through a friend,” Bündchen told Vanity Fair back in 2009. “The moment I saw him, he smiled and I was like, that is the most beautiful, charismatic smile I’ve ever seen! We sat and talked for three hours. I had to go home for Christmas, but I didn’t want to leave. You know that feeling of, like, you can’t get enough? From the first day we met, we’ve never spent one day without speaking to each other.”
Brady has openly credited Bündchen for his Super Bowl successes (that would be six, if you lost count) and said that Bündchen has sacrificed numerous dreams of her own to support his, according to Bazaar.
His Twitter shoutout to his wife after the Super Bowl says it all.
Apparently, the spark is very much still there — and what a year they (and the Patriots) have had. Happy 10th, you ridiculously photogenic famous people.
