Tom Brady is widely considered the greatest quarterback in NFL history. He may not have the strongest arm, the fastest legs, or even the most spectacular play, but he's been historically dominant in the clutch and has won a league-high seven Super Bowls.

But, would fans feel the same way about him if he had won two fewer rings? Would he still be the undisputed GOAT if he had five Vince Lombardi trophies instead of seven? Notably, that was a real possibility.

An Unfulfilled Promise

Brady and Gisele Bündchen are one of the ultimate power couples in the entertainment industry, and it's been like that since they started dating.

Notably, Brady promised her in 2006 that he'd retire after ten seasons, and they even intended to move to Costa Rica to spend their golden years together:

Back in 2006, when he met his wife Gisele Bündchen for the first time, Brady made a strange promise that he never fulfilled, reported Essentially Sports. The duo once planned to head back to Costa Rica after Brady announced his retirement.

She Almost Convinced Him

So, when the New England Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI, it was time for Gisele to collect and remind him of that promise. As you may know by now, she was unsuccessful:

“I told him last year Well, you know, like, what a great win. Now you won two Super Bowls by the end of the 10th as you know. Now we’re going to Costa Rica. And I was like, Yo, let’s go, I’m read,” Bündchen said a couple of years ago. “But then, he’s like No! Still, there’s a lot more to go.'”

It's Her Turn Now

So, Brady's decision to come back from retirement didn't exactly sit well with his wife. Now, she's even hinting back at modeling, and they're reportedly not even living together:

“I have a huge list of things that I have to do, that I want to do. At 42, I feel more connected with my purpose, and now it’s going to be my turn,” Bündchen said in a recent interview.

Will They Break Up?

Tom Brady has once again chosen his career over everything else, so there's got to be a point where Gisele says enough is enough.

However, they've built such a nice life and family together that there's always the hope of reconciliation, albeit Brady will most likely have to compromise to get on her good side again. This time, he'll have to stand by his promise.
