During an interview with talk show host Jimmy Fallon, Gisele expressed her frustration trying to find love on blind dates after her 6-year-long relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio ended. The actress was also picking herself up like Brady and already went on several blind dates that didn’t turn out quite as she’d hoped.
At this point, the supermodel was tired of the regular dinner blind dates (frankly, who isn’t?) and opted instead to have drinks with her unknown suitor so she could run away faster in case the spark wasn’t there. A mutual friend set up the date, and Gisele was committed that this would be her last blind date. Fortunately for her, you could say that this is exactly what happened!
Brady’s Buddies Helped Him Find His Wife
Tom Brady got out of his almost 3-year relationship with Moynahan, and his friends decided to find him a new lady to keep the blood pumping in the legendary quarterback’s heart. While Brady was busy with his career and getting over the breakup, his friends were looking for new potential love interests and settled on the idea of arranging a blind date for him.
Tom knew he could always trust his winning smile and positive, charismatic attitude. He agreed to go on a blind date, believing it was time to finally move on from his time with Bridget. Tom put on his best look and smile as he left to meet Gisele Bündchen, the successful supermodel, actress, and environmentalist who would end up changing his life forever.
Gisele Liked Tom Brady Before She Ever Met Him
The Brazilian supermodel was asked in an interview way before she met Brady, what her thoughts were regarding the New England Patriots quarterback, who was dating Bridget Moynahan at the time. Not wanting to create a media scandal, Gisele admitted being attracted to Tom while making it clear that she was not interested in pursuing a man who was already in a relationship with another woman.
Bündchen reportedly told the Boston Herald back in December 2005, “Tom Brady, definitely not too shabby,” and added, "He’s cute, but if he has a girlfriend, he’s gay to me. There are too many men in the world to go after a man who has a woman. Life is too short." Time would show the supermodel that life has a funny sense of humor about love and relationships.
How Gisele Knew She Loved Tom
Despite going on her blind date expecting a disappointment like all the previous ones, Bundchen told Vanity Fair that she knew Brady was the one that same night they first met. "The moment I saw him, he smiled, and I was like, 'That is the most beautiful, charismatic smile I've ever seen!'" She also told Jimmy Fallon that the moment she felt his loving heart and kind eyes, she knew that she loved him.
Tom Brady was quick to return the same feelings, not just because he was dating one of the highest-paid supermodels in the world but also because of the great chemistry and communication they had. Gisele shared that from the day they met until they decided t break things up, the couple has not gone a single day without talking.
Were Things Too Good to Be True?
The beautiful and successful couple dated for a while. Everything was going so well that Gisele said she felt it had to be too good to be true. Despite attempting to keep a relatively low profile, it’s hard for the world’s best quarterback and highest-paid supermodel to keep an inspiring relationship like this private.
Everything was amazing. It seemed like the couple couldn’t get their hands off each other, and we couldn’t get our eyes off them! Unfortunately, sometimes life turns around and gives you a kick in the butt, which is what happens when Tom gets a call from his ex, Bridget, that ends up changing the future of the three forever.
