On October 28th, the pair finalized their divorced and announced the same. It was quite a shock to their fans considering they’ve been together for 13 years, and have two children together, Benjamin and Vivian, while do-parenting Brady’s son Jack, whom he had with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan.
While neither of them officially confirmed it, it’s been said that Brady’s decision to return to football after his supposed retirement stirred up arguments between his ex-wife and himself. He returned to football after 40-days of announcing his retirement and his ex-wife felt he was never going to be around to raise the family.
Here’s what Tom Brady said about the situation:
“She felt like I would play football all season and she would take care of the house, and then all of a sudden when the season ended, I'd be like, 'Great, let me get into all of my other business activities. Let me get into my football training,' and she's sitting there going, 'Well when are you going to do things for the house? When are you going to take the kids to school and do that?' "
Currently, they’ve both turned their focus on how to find the right balance in co-parenting since the children are their number 1 priority.
