“With much gratitude for our time together, Tom and I have amicably finalized our divorce. 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,” her statement read.
It seems they are both keeping true to this promise to their three children. Gisele and Tom share Benajmin (12), Vivian (9) and the NFL star’s son, Jack (15), from a previous relationship.
Page Six learned the couple each completed a “Parent Education and Family Stabilization” course before finalizing the end of their marriage.
Tom & Gisele Took ‘Family Stabilization’ Course Before Divorce
According to court documents obtained by the outlet, Tom completed the course on October 25th and Gisele completed it the following day on the 26th.
The former Victoria’s Secret model’s certificate noted the course was “required.”
Florida law requires the course for separating or divorcing parents. The course is designed to help educate, train and assist parents in regards to the impact divorce can have on parents and children.
Gisele’s IG statement continued, “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.”
The Blast recently reported on Tom’s individual social media statement.
“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,” Tom wrote in an Instagram Story. “We arrived at this decision to end our marriage after much consideration. Doing so, is, of course, painful and difficult, like it is for many people who go through the same thing every day around the world. However we wish only the best for each other as we pursue whatever new chapters in our lives that are yet to be written.”
The star QB concluded his statement, “And we kindly as for privacy and respect as we navigate what is to come in the days and weeks ahead. Thank you.”
