As Bündchen's kiddos have accepted this new phase of her life, the former New England Patriots quarterback, 46 has too. As OK! previously reported, the Brazilian beauty and Brady have both made peace with each other after their relationship ended in divorce.

"He and Gisele made it sound like they grew apart and that their split was very amicable, but their marriage near the end was so bad it was scary," an insider explained. "The past year has made a world of difference."

"He’s embraced co-parenting, dating here and there and he’s even made peace with Gisele," the source spilled of the Super Bowl champ.

Now that any tensions with Brady are behind her, the Brazilian beauty can focus on her new love with Valente. "They have been dating since June. They're taking it slow. They started out as great friends first. She's very private about this and wanted to keep it quiet while they got to know each other," an insider spilled about the new pair.

"They started out as friends,” a second source added. “He was a huge comfort for Gisele while she went through her divorce. Their friendship turned romantic after the divorce.”

"Joaquim is a great guy. He is down to earth, kind and inspiring. Gisele was hesitant about dating after the divorce. It's been very natural for her to date Joaquim," the insider added.
