Last month, just after Xmas/just before New Year’s Eve, TMZ erroneously reported that Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady got engaged to be married while flying on a white roses-laden private plane from New Jersey to Boston, MA … a report that was immediately debunked by members of the couple’s family who were in the know and denied that any engagement took place on Xmas Eve. Today, People magazine is reporting that AT LAST the couple have finally, really gotten engaged after Tom proposed to Gisele over the weekend … they’re really gettin’ hitched, y’all!
Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady are making some major post-season plans after getting engaged in Los Angeles over the weekend, PEOPLE has learned. The New England Patriots quarterback, 31, proposed with a diamond solitaire to the Brazilian supermodel, 28, on Friday. “He asked and she accepted,” a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE. Family and friends were informed over the weekend. An official announcement, as well as preliminary wedding details, are being planned by Bündchen and her closest friends this week. “The couple is discussing a huge fashionista event in the spring or a more intimate and quicker ceremony in Costa Rica, where Gisele has a home,” the source adds. While engagement rumors flew – and were denied – before Christmas, the January engagement will mark the first marriage for both. Bündchen’s agent told PEOPLE, “We don’t comment on our clients’ private lives.”
I really hope that People magazine got it right this time, cuz another false engagement report would be a bit too much to handle. As I said before when I thought the couple got engaged last month, I am thrilled for them both. They make a ridiculously handsome couple and I’m sure they’ll be very happy with one another in wedded bliss. I honestly never thought the couple would be able to keep their relationship going after Tom became a father after he broke up with Bridget Moynahan … I thought, for sure, Gisele would run for the hills and away from motherhood. I’m very happy to know that I was wrong. Congrats to the happy couple, here’s hopin’ they tie the knot sooner rather than later … I can’t even imagine how stunningly beautiful Gisele Bündchen will look in her wedding dress.
