Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen reportedly each completed a four-hour parenting and family stabilization course before finalizing their divorce Friday in a Florida courthouse.
The 45-year-old Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback completed the course on Oct. 25 and the 42-year-old supermodel completed it on Oct. 26, according to court filings obtained by Page Six.
Florida state law requires that parents with minor children who are seeking a separation or divorce must self-administer and complete the course within 45 days of filing the application. You must submit certificates of completion to the court before the final judgment is pronounced.
The couple share son Benjamin Reign, 12, and daughter Vivian Lake, 9. Brady is also father to son Jack, 15, who he shares with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan, 51.
TOM BRADY AND GISELE BÜNDCHEN’S RELATIONSHIP OVER THE YEARS
The course aims to “educate, educate and support divorcing parents on the implications of divorce for parents and children.”
Bundchen filed the divorce papers Friday at the Glades County Courthouse in Moore Haven, Fla. The court documents said the couple divorced because their marriage was “irretrievably broken,” according to Page Six.
Glades County is the most sparsely populated county in Florida. Under state law, couples can file for divorce in any county in Florida, as long as both parties consent.
According to the Daily Mail, county officials told the outlet that Brady and Bundchen did not visit the courthouse and all paperwork was filed electronically.
“Everything was going forward, we didn’t do anything differently,” said Kelly Brantley, paralegal to Judge Jack Lundy, who signed the settlement.
“Your lawyers took care of everything so we could handle everything in one day.”
The terms of the former couple’s prenuptial agreement will be kept confidential, according to Page Six.
The NFL star and model both announced they finalized their divorce on Friday after months of speculation.
“In the past few days my wife and I have finalized our divorce after 13 years of marriage,” Brady wrote in an Instagram post. “We made this decision amicably and in gratitude for the time we had together.
He continued, “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 ensure they always receive the love and attention they deserve.”
“After much deliberation, we have come to the decision to end our marriage. This is of course painful and difficult as it is for many people around the world who are going through the same thing every day. However, we wish only the best for one another as we pursue any new chapters in our lives that have yet to be written.”
“And we kindly ask for privacy and respect as we navigate the coming days and weeks,” Brady concluded.
