Bündchen appeared to be in good spirits amid what sources described to People as ‘a rough patch’ in the 13-year celebrity marriage.

Bündchen is mother to 12-year-old son Benjamin and nine-year-old daughter Vivian, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, and is stepmom to his 14-year-old son with actress Bridget Moynahan, John Edward Thomas Moynahan.

Insiders told the publication that there is ‘a lot of tension’ between the pair, as Bündchen ‘wasn’t thrilled’ with Brady’s decision to return to the NFL for one more season after briefly retiring earlier this year.

‘They’re hitting a rough patch,’ the insider told the outlet. ‘But I know they’re trying, or at least he’s trying, to figure it out and make it work. He wants to get through this and for things to get better.’

There were no plans for Bündchen to attend Brady’s first game of the new season at AT&T Stadium in Dallas on Sunday, an insider with the Bucs told the outlet: ‘It’s always a big thing when Gisele is coming to watch the game, [but] as of right now, there’s none of that for Sunday’s game.’

The insider said that ‘it feels very different this year than last year,’ when Bündchen ‘was excited to be here’ and seen around the team’s facilities.

‘I’m not saying she can’t possibly come, but nothing is in place for her to be here for the first regular season game and that seems weird,’ the source told the magazine. ‘Everyone here knows that there’s tension, but we don’t know how serious it is. 

‘So we’re just not talking to him about Gisele. It’s not a topic anyone wants to bring up to him.”

The latest update came after insiders told Page Six last week that the pair remained at odds after she returned home from a solo trip to Costa Rica which was triggered by his decision to un-retire from football. 

The supermodel and the seven-time Super Bowl champion have not patched up their rocky relationship, and ‘could be heading’ towards a divorce, insiders revealed to the outlet.

Mother-of-two Gisele headed to her Costa Rica home without Tom at the beginning of September after having an blow-out argument with her husband – who she has been married to since 2009. 

She spent time at their home in Central America following reports that the duo were fighting over Brady’s sensational decision to rejoin the NFL after a brief retirement. 

Tom agreed to retire from the sport to spent more time with his family, but then u-turned the decision – allegedly causing friction with his wife, insiders claim.  

But despite their time apart, the celeb couple’s marriage is still on the rocks and Gisele allegedly hasn’t returned back to their home in Tampa, Florida – after being spotted at a waterpark last weekend with their children. 

Sources say that rumors the pair are currently divorcing are ‘not true,’ but others close to the family have said that Brady and Bündchen could be heading in that direction.

‘Gisele isn’t back with Tom,’ a source told Page Six. ‘She flew back to Florida to be with her kids but hasn’t been to their home in Tampa. Tom is still hoping they can reconcile. Gisele has told him she’s leaving him before, and they always made up when she cooled down.’

On Monday this week, the football legend also made another illusion to the ups and downs in his relationship, telling his podcast: ‘You always have moments … I don’t think life is always the ultimate joy, I don’t think life is always the ultimate pain, I don’t think life is always the ultimate struggle, I don’t think life is always the ultimate happiness.

‘Your life ebbs and flows through the clouds and through the sun and through the rain and through the beautiful days and you appreciate the moments and you find joy in the little things.’ 

This comes after Gisele revealed why raising children Tom is not the ‘fairy tale’ most people imagine it would be.

During a candid interview with British Vogue, the supermodel explained that it takes ‘work to be really in sync with someone, especially after you have kids.’

Just weeks ago after Brady’s preseason game with the Buccaneers, he alluded to his potential family issues, saying in a press conference that ‘there’s a lot of s*** going on.’

He said: ‘Everyone has different situations they’re dealing with and we all have unique challenges to our lives.

‘I’m 45 years old, man. There’s a lot of s*** going on, so you just have to try and figure out life the best you can. You know, it’s a continuous process.’

Brady last posted about his wife’s ‘inspiring honesty and authenticity’ on July 20 in a doting birthday post for the supermodel. And she returned the favor, celebrating his birthday on August 3 with an adorable snap of the father with two of his children.  

The stunning couple were last seen in public in June – as they held hands with each other and their daughter as they walked past the Dolce & Gabbana gallery in Portofino, Italy.

Gisele looked very summery in a navy blue shirt and white trousers, with striped shoes and carrying her essential belongings in a blue handbag. 

Tom cut a casual figure in a simple white T-shirt, blue shorts and white trainers, while sporting a navy blue baseball cap on his head. 

‘His focus is on his career, mine is mostly on the kids,’ she explained. ‘And I’m very grateful that he lets me take the reins when it comes to our family. He trusts my decisions.’
