The New York Post‘s gossip page reported Tuesday that Brady and Bündchen have both hired divorce lawyers, which can be an indication of permanent split for the couple, who got married in February 2009. A representative for Brady and Bündchen had not responded to a request for comment from the time of this article’s publication.
According to the sources, any divorce would involve joint custody for Brady and Bündchen of the couple’s children, as both parents are “very involved in their children’s lives.” Bündchen gave birth to the couple’s son Benjamin, 12, in 2009 and daughter Vivian, 9, in 2012. Brady also has a son, Jack, 15, from a previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan. Brady, meanwhile, has acknowledged multiple times that Bündchen wanted him to do more on the home front. In a previous interview, Howard Stern, Brady said that the couple had attended therapy after Bündchen wrote him a letter detailing her dissatisfaction with their marriage
