Tom Brady consulted ex-wife Gisele Bundchen on his decision to retire (again) from the NFL, according to a new report.

Brady announced he was ending his career for a second time on February 1, posting a brief Instagram video that said this retirement was ‘for good after unretiring last year.

And according to US Weekly, Brady ‘talked this through’ with Bundchen before coming to a final decision.

The publication quoted an anonymous source that said the quarterback’s ex had been a ‘real rock’ to him throughout the process, and noted the co-parents are on ‘cordial terms.’

Bundchen, however, classily congratulated her ex-husband on his retirement earlier this month, 

‘Wishing you only wonderful things in this new chapter of your life,’ she commented on his retirement video, which was posted to Instagram.

On Tuesday, Bundchen was spotted looking relaxed while chatting on the phone and watching her daughter horseback ride, days after her ex-husband was seen shouting in rage on the phone at the same stable.

On the field, it was a season to forget for Brady, who finished his career with an astounding seven Super Bowl wins.

His Bucs finished just 8-9 and lost in the first round of the playoffs to the Cowboys, while on an individual level, Brady finished with the fifth-least touchdowns of his career in a season (25).
