A last minute getaway trip to Costa Rica, allowed Gisele Bündchen with her kids, be seen with her jiu-jitsu trainer, Joaquim Valente.
The foursome was photographed having a nice and enjoyable lunch together in the tropical paradise.
Gisele showed off her toned body in black high-waisted shorts and a ruffled bra top, while Valente kept it casual in printed black shorts and a navy blue T-shirt.
Her kids that she shares with ex-husband Tom Brady, were also looking stylish, with Vivian, 10, in a graphic tee and white shorts, while Benjamin, 13, wore black athletic shorts and no shirt.
The pre-Thanksgiving trip seemed to last for a few days, as Gisele, 43, and Benjamin were seen strolling on the beach during the morning hours a couple days after arriving.
The mom of two and Valente have been close for years. The pair was most recently spotted training at his family-owned gym in Miami over the summer, where Bündchen flashed her rock-solid abs.
In the spring, they were photographed paddle boarding together in Miami, and before that, they enjoyed several other Costa Rican vacations.
They first met when Gisele signed her children up for jiu-jitsu lessons, which she then began.
“Initially I wasn’t even considering it for myself, to be honest with you,” she mentioned about joining the lessons during an interview in 2022. “But when I brought him to the first class and started talking with Joaquim, I realized that it was much more than self-defense and became interested in the philosophy. It felt very much in line with what I believe in and look for in my life and how I have a path to develop and become the best version of myself. Then I was hooked.”
Earlier this year, Bündchen, whose divorce from Brady, 46, was finalized in October 2022, pushed back at rumors she’s dating Valente in an interview with Vanity Fair.
“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 said of the gossip.
“I’m so grateful to know all of the Valente brothers, because not only have they helped me and helped my kids, but they have become great friends, and Joaquim especially,” she added.
Gisele noted, “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.”
