Many parents had to start homeschooling their children during the Covid-19 pandemic – including Gisele Bündchen. The famous supermodel opened up about her kids’ homeschooling journey in the face of many changes their family had to deal with in the past three years.
Bündchen has two children with her ex-husband Tom Brady – Vivian, 10, and Benjamin, 13. They went through a divorce last year, which was only one of many changes their children had to deal with recently, on top of the global pandemic and multiple moves.
Brady notably changed his mind about retiring from the NFL several times, and his family stuck around in Tampa, Florida longer than first intended. Putting their kids back in school during this rocky time was tricky, and Bündchen eventually felt like homeschooling was the way to go.
“I didn’t even finish high school, so it was a little difficult… It was crazy. I was in a new city, I didn’t know anyone, and everything was new. Homeschool was great for that and then luckily, we were able to get a great teacher, a great tutor that taught both of them,” she told People.
Those days are now long behind them, and Bündchen told People that Vivian and Benjamin are really enjoying their new school in Miami, adding they’re making friends and learning how to be thoughtful and considerate of others.
