Who is Gisele Bündchen dating now after her divorce from NFL star Tom Brady? Gisele Bündchen’s exes include A-List athletes, models, and actors.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, NFL star Tom Brady and retired supermodel Gisele Bündchen have called it quits on their marriage. And after a 13-year union that welcomed two children, it appears that both parties are standing firm on being co-parents as opposed to being coupled.
Dating post-divorce can be difficult for many, but we have a feeling that Gisele will do just fine. For one, Gisele is a Brazilian supermodel who has graced the covers of countless magazines and earned her angel wings via Victoria’s Secret. So, it’s safe to assume that men will be knocking down her door and while we thought she would be single for a while, she seems to have found a new man.
Who is Gisele dating now? There have been rumors she’s already introduced her new mystery man to her kids! Keep reading for everything you need to know.
Who is Gisele Bündchen dating?
On Nov. 14, 2022, several outlets spotted Gisele out to dinner in Costa Rica with jiu-jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente, who reportedly lives in Miami. The duo was having dinner at Koji in Provincia de Puntarenas with Gisele’s kids Benjamin and Vivian in tow. Also in attendance was Joaquim’s co-trainer Jordan, according to Page Six.
Despite the pair looking cozy together, multiple sources are claiming that rumors of a romantic relationship are “totally false.” A source told Page Six, “Joaquim and his two brothers have instructed Gisele and the children in martial arts for the past year and a half.” The source added that the relationship between Joaquim and Gisele is “strictly platonic and professional.”
A second insider told the outlet, “Jordan and Joaquim travel with the family when they’re out of town because the kids are homeschooled.”
Eagle-eyed fans might recall seeing Joaquim on Gisele’s Instagram page on Feb. 23, 2022, when she explained that taking up self-defense was “empowering”, especially as a woman.
Another source told Fox News Digital of the romance rumors, “None of it’s true. This is the kids’ and Gisele’s longtime martial arts teacher. There’s no truth to any dating rumors.”
A third source told TMZ that the vacation included a total of “six adults and eight kids,” saying that Gisele wasn’t on vacation with the Valente brothers alone and that she has “many friends” in the area who joined in the fun.
It sounds like, despite the rumors, Gisele was on a family outing, not a date. Hopefully, when she does choose to move on, fans will be the first to know!
Gisele Bündchen’s relationship history
Gisele’s dating history serves as proof that she may very well become one of the most eligible bachelorettes in Hollywood. Here’s a deep dive into Gisele Bündchen’s exes.
1. Tom Brady
According to WSJ Magazine, Tom and Gisele first met in 2006 thanks to a mutual friend that set them up on a blind date. The two quickly started dating and encountered a hiccup when Tom’s ex, actress Bridget Moynahan, reveals that she was pregnant with his child in February 2007.
Thankfully, the pair got over that hiccup and went on to create their own love story. The couple later got engaged in January 2009 and married a month later. Gisele and Tom welcomed two children during their 13-year union that came to an end in October 2022.
2. Josh Hartnett
Before Gisle became enamored with Tom, there was John Hartnett. According to Page Six, Gisele and actor Josh Hartnett had a fling in 2006. Right after Josh and his ex, actress Scarlett Johansson, called it quits, he was spotted tongue-wrestling with the former Victoria’s Secret Angel in New York City.
However, it appears their connection fizzled out rather quickly.
3. Kelly Slater
Gisele always had a thing for athletes and Kelly Slater was once her main squeeze. Page Six shares that Gisele and Kelly became a thing after her split from Leo DiCaprio. Unfortunately, they went on to call it quits in 2006 after dating in 2005.
4. Leonardo DiCaprio
Baby … you should have seen this one coming. Anyone with eyes would expect Leo to be in Gisele’s dating history. After all, that man has a deep affinity for gorgeous supermodels. Anywho, the pair reportedly dated from 1999 to 2005.
While many fans thought that the pair had the potential to go the distance, Gisele shared that she was struggling with anxiety and felt the need to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
“No longer numbing myself with smoking, drinking and too much work, I was becoming more and more aware of things that I’d chosen not to look at,” Gisele told PORTER’s Magazine in 2019. “Was I alone in wanting to do some serious soul-searching while he stayed the same? In the end, unfortunately, the answer was yes.”
5. Scott Barnhill
Gisele also fancied fellow model Scott Barnhill in 1999. Per The Sun, the pair started dating after her relationship with João. Although their romance also lasted a few months, Scott has always had great things to say about Gisele.
“She’s always known what she wanted. I wish the best for her,” Scott told the NY Daily News.
6. João Paulo Diniz
Lastly, Gisele and Brazilian businessman João Paulo Diniz briefly dated in 1999. Not much is known about the reason for the pair splitting, but it was around the time when Gisele’s modeling career was on the rise.
Per WhosDatedWho, Gisele Bündchen has been in relationships with Ricardo Mansur in 2002, Jennifer Esposito in 2004, and Vikram Chatwal.
