Tom Brady is trying to ‘find the good’ in his ex-wife Gisele Bundchen’s new boyfriend Joaquim Valente, according to insiders, who claim he is adapting to the new dynamic – but isn’t quite friends with the hunky Brazilian just yet.

Gisele, 43, seemingly confirmed her long-rumored romance with the jiu-jitsu instructor last week after they were spotted sharing a passionate kiss during a Valentine’s Day date in Miami.

It was claimed that they started dating back in June – but the relationship timeline has reportedly raised questions for Tom, who allegedly believes they have been together longer.

‘Tom has been dating and is all about growing from his relationship with Gisele and moving it to a place where they can co-parent,’ a source told DailyMail.com exclusively.

‘If she wants to have people think she has been dating Joaquim only since June, so be it, but they have been together longer and they aren’t taking it slow. Tom has accepted it.’

According to the source, Tom has no issues with Joaquim, who was first pictured on holiday in Costa Rica with Gisele in November 2022, just two weeks after her divorce was finalized.

‘Tom and Joaquim are not friends – but Joaquim is around his kids, so Tom has to find the good in him and does believe he is a good guy,’ the source continued. 

‘If Joaquim ever becomes a father figure to his kids, Tom will be able to adapt.’

The sportsman is no stranger to co-parenting, having hooked up with Gisele in late 2006, around the time he split from Bridget Moynahan, with whom he has son John, 16.

‘People seem to forget Tom has a lot of practice with all of this from his time with Bridget,’ they said. ‘They had a child, they moved on and figured it out.

‘Stuff is working out with him and Gisele and if Joaquim is going to be in her life forever, then he will make it all work for the best for everyone, there is no other option.’

Tom and Gisele tied the knot in 2009 and share son Benjamin, 14, and daughter Vivian, 11. They divorced in October 2022, with Tom going on to date model Irina Shayk.

Earlier this week, it was claimed that Gisele and Joaquim, who have yet to confirm they are an item, started dating in June 2023.

However, multiple sources close to Tom suggested he is not convinced by the timeline of events, with one claiming the Brazilian supermodel has been dating Joaquim since June 2021.

Another said: ‘They started out as friends. He was a huge comfort for Gisele while she went through her divorce. Their friendship turned romantic after the divorce.’

In raunchy video footage obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com last week, Gisele was seen embracing her new man in the street as they strolled around the upscale neighborhood where she lives. 

They reached what appeared to be Joaquim’s car, at which point the handsome martial arts teacher wrapped an arm around Gisele, who was clutching onto her dog’s leash.

The model reciprocated by draping herself around his neck as she leaned in to exchange several kisses before they pulled apart.

Rumors of a relationship first started to swirl when Joaquim was pictured holidaying with Gisele and her children just two weeks after her divorce from Tom. They have also enjoyed trips to their native Brazil together.

Page Six was the first to report that the pair were an item, after sharing photos from a night out in November 2022 and branding Joaquim as her ‘new man.’

But insiders have persistently attempted to quash the ‘love’ talk, with the model herself deflecting when asked about the alleged romance during an interview with Vanity Fair last March.

‘I think, at this point, unfortunately, because I’m divorced, I’m sure that they’re going to try to attach me to anything,’ she told the publication of the rumors.

She went on to lavish praise on Joaquim and his brothers Pedro and Gui, who run the Valente Brothers Jiu-Jitsu studio that Gisele’s children attend.

Gisele continued: ‘I’m so grateful to know all of them, because not only have they helped me and helped my kids, but they have become great friends, and Joaquim especially.

‘He’s our teacher and, most importantly, he’s a person that I admire and that I trust. It’s so good to have that kind of energy, to have my kids around that type of energy.’
