The NFL star wrote, ’10 years old and nothing better than seeing her smile [three red heart emojis].’
Bundchen has also posted a series of Instagram photos for her daughter’s birthday.
They were seen at the beach together splashing in the ocean. The child was also seen with her cat.
And multiple Insta stories showed off their trip to Disney World to celebrate her birthday.
From the photos it seems the trip is just moms and kids, no dads or exes allowed.

It’s speculated that the pair separated due to disagreements over his career and retirement.
The star player has announced his retirement from football after several seasons in recent years, ultimately changing his mind each time and continuing to play.
Brady is currently signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as their quarterback.
For the first 20 years of his career, he was the quarterback of the New England Patriots, leading the team to 17 division titles, nine Super Bowl appearances, and six Super Bowl titles.
Bundchen has also had a successful career of her own. She was a Victoria’s Secret Angel from 1999 until 2006 and has been one of the highest-paid models in the world.
However, it seems her career was put on the back-burner due to Brady’s immovable decision to stick with football well after most players his age retire. The model became the one to give up her career to take care of their kids.

The couple confirmed the split via statements released on social media.
Brady’s post on Instagram stated: ‘In recent days, my wife and I finalized our divorce from one another after 13 years of marriage. We arrived at this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time we spent together. We are blessed with beautiful and wonderful children who will continue to be the center of our world in every way. We will continue to work together as parents to always ensure they receive the love and attention they deserve.’
Despite their recent breakup, the couple seems to be on good terms with each other. The catwalk star has already bought a property across the creek from the NFL icon. Due to the close proximity of their homes, it will be even easier for them to co-parent together.
