Gisele Bündchen was spotted in Costa Rica recently. She was not alone but with her jiu-Jitsu instructor, Joaquim Valente. The rumor about the supermodel and her instructor dating started in November 2022. They were spotted having dinner together. Later Valente was seen strolling with Gisele Bündchen and her kids in the streets of Costa Rica.
Many insiders and sources have confirmed that they are not on romantic terms and Valente is just a close family friend. However, the amount of time they spend together and the activities they do makes the fans think otherwise. Gisele and Valente were spotted riding horses together during a getaway in Costa Rica on Tuesday.

After her divorce from her ex-husband, Tom Brady, she seems happier. With shiny golden hair and a green top, she seems to be in the moment with her instructor. A source close to Gisele gave out information about how “charged” and settled she is at the moment.
“She is super charged about her career in the next few months. She is busy making decisions and feels happy and more settled than she has in a long time.”

The 42-year-old never gave out an official statement about her situation with Valente but someone close to her spoke out about their situation.
“Gisele adores and trusts and has been spending a lot of time with him, but I don’t think it’s a traditional dating scenario. They have a deep personal relationship, and he is a teacher to her and the kids. Whether or not it will ever become more than that rests on the table.”
From getting clicked while they jog together on the Costa Rican streets to riding horses together, it does seem that there is some validity to the claims that the pair may be dating.
Why did Gisele Bündchen leave Tom Brady?
Gisele and Brady reportedly had a huge fight in September that led them to live separately for a while. On October 28, 2022, they got divorced. The primary reason was, they both agreed to spend more time together but things went array when Brady decided to unretire and continued to play in the NFL.
She also felt that he wasn’t as attentive as he should’ve been. Gisele wanted to be heard and Brady was too busy with his career aspirations. However, someone close to Brady stated “He was always there for her and the kids. Even during football. He’s an anomaly because he’s played for so long. Yes, he worked just like any parent worked, but he always spends a great deal of time with his family.”

Whatever the reason might be, in the present moment Brady has been dealing with a lot of questions about his retirement and Gisele has seemingly found peace in her life.
