Tom Brady, 46, plans to travel to Paris for the 2024 Summer Olympics, but he won't be flying alone!

The NFL quarterback has a new date lined up following his divorce from supermodel Gisele Bündchen. As The Blast reported, speculation about the couple's relationship troubles started when the now-retired quarterback unexpectedly took an 11-day break from training camp in August 2022, citing "personal reasons."

Brady eventually resumed training camp and issued a statement, saying, "Everyone faces their own challenges, and we all have unique circumstances in life. I'm 45 years old, you know."

The divorce announcement came months later, but Tom Brady is seemingly moving on from his past, as he has revealed his date for the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics.

Before they announced their divorce, Gisele Bündchen spoke out about her marriage and Brady’s decision to come out of retirement. “Obviously, I have my concerns—this is a very violent sport, and I have my children and I would like him to be more present,” she said. “I have definitely had those conversations with him over and over again. But ultimately, I feel that everybody has to make a decision that works for [them]. He needs to follow his joy, too.”

Bündchen continued, “I’ve done my part, which is [to] be there for [Tom]. I moved to Boston, and I focused on creating a cocoon and a loving environment for my children to grow up in and to be there supporting him and his dreams. Seeing my children succeed and become the beautiful little humans that they are, seeing him succeed, and being fulfilled in his career—it makes me happy. At this point in my life, I feel like I’ve done a good job on that.”

On February 1, 2022, Brady announced his retirement on Instagram. However, he came out of retirement just weeks later to play one last season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Then, on February 1, 2023, he announced, once again, that his time in the NFL was done.

“I’ll get to the point right away. I’m retiring. For good,” he began to say in the video. “I know the process was a pretty big deal last time, so when I woke up this morning, I figured I’d just press record and let you guys know first. I won’t be long-winded. You only get one super emotional retirement essay, and I used mine up last year, so really thank you guys so much to every single one of you for supporting me, my family, my friends, my teammates, and my competitors, I could go on forever there’s too many.”
