Tom Brady opened up about the pesky rumors plaguing his marriage to Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen.
The Super Bowl-winning quarterback opened up on Boston’s WEEI on Tuesday in a lengthy radio interview touching on the fallout from Deflategate, his relationship with presidential contender Donald Trump and his marriage to Bundchen.
He said “it’s been a tough, challenging seven months” and that his wife has been by his side the whole time.
“We’re in a great place. I’m a lucky man. I’ve been very blessed with a support from my family, and certainly her,” Brady said. “There’s no bigger support I have than her and vice versa. I’ve been very blessed to have an incredible relationship with my life partner. I don’t think anything will ever get in the way of that.”
Brady’s comment follows several weeks of rumors swirling that his 6-year marriage to Bundchen is on the rocks following the controversy surrounding Deflategate. It was the first time he has spoken about the rumors.

"There were a lot of different emotions that I went through," continued Brady, whose four-game suspension was tossed out by a federal judge last week. "Those were all at different points in different circumstances. I think they were all — I kind of took them as they come. I faced obviously different adversities in my life, different challenges and you just kind of rely on those experiences and you rely on a lot of people that are around you for the support. This has been a different type of challenge in my life. I think it's been a different type of obstacle to overcome."
Bundchen seemed to use social media to address the rumors with an intimate behind-the-scenes photo of her husband and family.
“And my heart melts #biggestlove #family,” the model captioned a photo of Brady playing soccer with their daughter Vivian Lake.
