Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen packed up and left their home in Tampa Bay with their children as Hurricane Ian gained strength.
The couple, haunted in recent weeks by rumors of marital trouble, made their way to their Miami home, an insider told People Tuesday.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, 45, and Brazilian supermodel, 42, made the quick move with son Benjamin, 12, and daughter Vivian, 9. They accompanied Brady’s son John Edward Thomas Moynahan, who he shares with actress Bridget Moynahan.
It came just hours after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced they would evacuate to the Miami area as the storm approached.
The team said it will practice at the Miami Dolphins facility for their showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
“The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made contingency plans for this week’s preparations for Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs,” the team said in a statement.
“The Buccaneers are expected to practice at the Miami Dolphins Baptist Health Training Complex in Miami Gardens, Florida, from Wednesday, through the end of Week 4 preparations, if needed. The Dolphins will play in Cincinnati in week four and should be ready on the field by Wednesday morning.”
The team said Sunday’s game is still expected at this time.
“The NFL, in consultation with the team and local officials, will continue to monitor the situation,” the statement concluded.
On Tuesday, the seven-time Super Bowl winner called the hurricane “pretty intense.”
“For me this is a little different. I’ve never had to deal with anything like this. We’ve had COVID for a few years and now it looks like a pretty intense hurricane is heading towards us,” he said.
“I don’t think Tampa is likely. I don’t think any place is very suitable for a hurricane to hit, but everyone in this area will be in our thoughts and prayers as we go through it.” I know our team will have to adapt, go to Miami and train there for a week and hopefully we can come back later in the week and play against the Chiefs on Sunday night.”
He continued: ‘I don’t think anyone is really prepared for this. I know I’ve been preparing all morning and taking all my stuff out, trying to put it in, trying to get all the stuff on the floor a little bit higher.
“I’m here on the bay, so they’re talking about pretty high storm surges and it’s scary. I’ll say it’s scary when it’s really on the doorstep.”
