While one source said Bündchen and Miami-based Valente were on a group outing with multiple other adults and children, a Brady insider scoffed at the claim, noting, "It always seemed weird she just one day abruptly ended the marriage."

Nonetheless, neither Bündchen nor Valente have commented on the dating buzz.

According to insiders, the brunette beauty has known Valente for at least a year and a half, and after her and Brady's two kidsBenjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9 — started taking lessons with him, she took up the sport herself.

"When I brought him to the first class and started talking with Joaquim, I realized that it was much more than self-defense. I became really interest [in] the philosophy," the star previously expressed of taking up the physical activity. "It felt very much in line with what I believe in and look for in my life, and how I have a path to develop and become the best version of myself."
