Supermodel Gisele Bündchen has reportedly purchased a new Miami Beach area mansion nearby the property where her ex-husband, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, is building a house, according to Page Six.
Sources close to the former couple said Bündchen purchased the $11.5 million Surfside home directly across the creek from Brady's Biscayne Bay mansion in order to make their co-parenting situation easier for their children to travel back and forth.
“You could literally swim from Gisele’s place to Tom’s — not that they would — but both homes will include a dock, so it would be very easy for them to co-parent their children while living so close to each other,” the source told Page Six.
Bündchen's new home is reportedly an 18,400-square-foot waterfront property that includes five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, 25-foot ceilings, and multiple terraces, as well as waterway views.
Bündchen's reported purchase comes weeks after she and Brady announced their divorce on October 28.
"With much gratitude for our time together, Tom and I have amicably finalized our divorce," Bündchen wrote at the time. "My priority has always been and will continue to be our children whom I love with all my heart. We will continue co-parenting to give them the love, care and attention they greatly deserve.
"The decision to end a marriage is never easy but we have grown apart and while it is, of course, difficult to go through something like this, I feel blessed for the time we had together and only wish the best for Tom always.
"I kindly ask that our privacy be respected during this sensitive time."
