Recently, Gisele Bündchen, the renowned supermodel and former Victoria’s Secret Angel, has been making headlines for her public outings with her jiu-jitsu instructor, Joaquim Valente. The pair were spotted paddleboarding together in Miami, showcasing Bündchen’s toned physique in a black string bikini. While rumors of a romantic relationship have circulated, Bündchen has addressed these speculations, emphasizing her admiration and trust for Valente. The outing comes following the official announcement of Bündchen’s divorce from her husband of 13 years, NFL quarterback Tom Brady.
Bündchen and Valente have been spotted spending quality time together on various occasions. Notably, they were photographed together during a trip to Costa Rica, further fueling relationship rumors. However, Bündchen clarified that Valente and his family have been a source of support and friendship rather than a romantic interest. She expressed her gratitude for their positive influence on her and her children, highlighting the energy and values they bring into their lives.
Amidst the divorce, Bündchen put an end to speculation linking her to Jeffrey Soffer, a billionaire developer and a friend of her ex-husband Tom Brady.

She emphasized that the rumors were unfounded and ridiculous, emphasizing her focus on her own personal growth and well-being.
Bündchen has been practicing jiu-jitsu with Valente for several years, and the two have developed a strong professional bond. In a social media post, Bündchen shared a video of herself sparring with Valente, highlighting the importance of self-defense and the empowerment it brings, particularly for women. She expressed her gratitude to Valente Brothers for their guidance and for making the training experience enjoyable. Bündchen’s dedication to jiu-jitsu serves as a testament to her ongoing personal development and commitment to physical and mental strength.
Bündchen and Brady, considered one of Hollywood’s power couples, officially announced their divorce in separate Instagram posts. They confirmed that the decision was made amicably after 13 years of marriage, acknowledging that they had grown apart. Despite the challenges of going through a divorce, both expressed gratitude for the time they had spent together and their shared responsibility as parents to their children.
