Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady’s marriage is ending, the two announced on Oct. 28. In a statement shared on his Instagram Story, Brady wrote, “In recent days, my wife and I finalized our divorce from one another after 13 years of marriage.” He added: “We arrived at this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time we spent together. We are blessed with beautiful and wonderful children who will continue to be the center of our world in every way. We will continue to work together as parents to always ensure they receive the love and attention they deserve.”

Bündchen also issued a statement confirming her and Brady’s divorce via her Instagram Story, writing, “The decision to end a marriage is never easy but we have grown apart and while it is, of course, difficult to go through something like this, I feel blessed for the time we had together and only wish the best for Tom always. I kindly ask that our privacy be respected during this sensitive time.”

Brady and Bündchen’s announcements follow People’s confirmation that, after months of speculation over the state of their marriage, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback and former supermodel are filing for divorce in Florida. “The settlement is all worked out,” the site reported on Oct. 28. “They’ve been working on the terms this whole time. They agreed to joint custody of the kids.” A rep for Brady and Bündchen did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s request for comment.

Brady and Bündchen first started dating in 2007, and were married in 2009. The year of their nuptials, Bündchen told Vanity Fair that she “knew right [a]way” that the athlete was the one for her. In fact, she said their connection happened the first time she saw him. Said Bündchen, “[He] smiled and I was like, that is the most beautiful, charismatic smile I’ve ever seen!”
