Gisele Bundchen was spotted without her wedding ring the same day she and her husband Tom Brady hired divorce lawyers.
Photos show the Brazilian supermodel with her children, but without her wedding ring on Wednesday (AEDT) in Miami, where she stayed amid rumors of her splitting from the NFL player.
The couple’s relationship has been on the rocks in the last few months after they got into an epic battle over Brady’s decision to retire from the NFL. The relationship appears to be reaching its breaking point as each side has retained divorce lawyers this week, as revealed exclusively by Page six.
Bundchen, 45, took her and Brady’s two children — son Benjamin, 12, and daughter Vivian, 9 — to a gym, casually dressed in a white crew-neck tank top and light gray leggings.

Bundchen seemed to be in full mom mode as she wore and passed all of her kids’ gym gear to them, including a water bottle, karate dogi, and a blue karate belt.
The two kids eventually rushed to the gym, leaving their mom with some of their gear and one arm free so she could show off her ringless left hand.
It is the second time the former Victoria’s Secret Angel has been spotted without a ring this week.
On Monday, she was photographed leaving a South Beach gym after getting a workout and was also not wearing her ring on that occasion.
While it’s unclear whether the dumping of her ring is related to the couple’s marital woes, Bundchen didn’t wear her wedding ring until June while the family was on vacation in Portofino, Italy.
Both Bundchen and Brady, 45, fled to Miami before Hurricane Ian hit their home in Tampa Bay, where Brady plays for the Buccaneers, but a source said Page six when they had moved to separate houses.
It has only gotten worse since then.
“I never thought this argument would be the end of them, but it looks like it is,” a source told Page six.
“I don’t think anything will come back now. They both have a lawyer and are looking at what a split entails, who gets what and what the finances will be.”
Neither Bundchen nor Brady have directly addressed the rift reports, but they have both individually suggested the rift.
In her September Elle cover story, Bündchen expressed her “concern” that her husband continued to play the “very violent sport”.
“My kids and I would like him to be more present,” she said, adding that she’s “definitely had those conversations with him over and over.”
Brady has also subtly discussed his marital problems as he recaps his football games every Monday in his SiriusXM podcast, “Let’s Go! With Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald, and Jim Gray.”
“Football and family have always been the most important thing to me,” he said in the September 13 episode, and admitted in the episode a week later that he was “pretty emotional” and needed to get those emotions in a “good place.” ”
The duo tied the knot in February 2009. Brady was previously in a relationship with Bridget Moynahan, 51, for nearly three years until they split in 2006, but they continue to co-parent their son Jack, 15.
