The model shares,
“It’s tough because you imagine your life was going to be a certain way, and you did everything you could, you know? I believed in fairy tales when I was a kid. I think it’s beautiful to believe in that. I mean, I’m so grateful I did.“
“You give everything you got to achieve your dream. You give a hundred percent of yourself, and it’s heartbreaking when it doesn’t end up the way you hoped for, and worked for, but you can only do your part.“
The 42-year-old model also discussed how she and her ex-husband Tom Brady had grown apart over the last few years.
“As time goes by, we realize that we just wanted different things, and now we have a choice to make. That doesn’t mean you don’t love the person. It just means that in order for you to be authentic and truly live the life that you want to live, you have to have somebody who can meet you in the middle, right? It’s a dance. It’s a balance.”
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen married on February 26, 2009 in an intimate ceremony. The former couple has two children, Benjamin Rein and Vivian Lake.
