Supermodel Gisele Bundchen will allow her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, to decide when to hang up his cleats for good and call it a career.

In an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America”, Bundchen declared that Brady could decide on when to retire from the NFL. “What will be will be,” said Bundchen, who, in the past, has openly expressed her desire to see his husband retire from playing football and give more time to their family.

However, Bundchen was singing a different tune during the interview with host Robin Roberts, saying it makes her happy seeing Brady play the sport that he deeply loves.

“I’ve never seen someone love something as much as he loves football, and it makes me happy,” said Bundchen, who is promoting her new book “Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life.”

Bundchen also explained her previous pronouncements about Brady’s retirement, saying she only uttered them because of concerns about his husband’s health. “If I said anything in the past, it’s because you have a concern,” said Bundchen, adding she doesn’t want to see a loved one getting hurt. Despite her objection, Bundchen remains supportive of her husband's career. [VIDEO]

Bundchen created controversy last season

In 2017, Bundchen stirred controversy when she said that Brady suffered a concussion the previous year. However, the Patriots injury list did not contain any report that Brady suffered such injury and he was never placed under concussion protocol.

After a thorough investigation, the NFL and the NFL Players Association disputed Bundchen’s claim, saying there was no evidence that Brady suffered a concussion or reported signs or symptoms consistent with having a concussion.

The 41-year-old Brady expressed his intention to play until he’s 45 years old. Brady’s pronouncement reportedly created a rift within the organization as head coach Bill Belichick wants to start then-backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo immediately. However, team owner Robert Kraft wants Brady to remain as starting quarterback, forcing Belichick to trade Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers [VIDEO].

Gronkowski absent during Tuesday’s practice

The status of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski for Thursday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts is in doubt after he was absent during Tuesday’s practice. Gronkowski suffered an ankle injury during their impressive win over the Miami Dolphins. The Patriots did not practice on Monday, but listed Gronkowski in their injury report as “did not participate.” Aside from Gronkowski, cornerback Eric Rowe and offensive tackle LaAdrian Waddle were not spotted during practice.
