Tom Brady takes his family to Miami before Hurricane Ian

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen have packed their bags and left their Tampa Bay home with their children as Hurricane Ian continues to gain ground.

The couple, who have been plagued by rumors of marital woes in recent weeks, headed to their Miami home, an insider told People on Tuesday.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, 45, and Brazilian model, 42, took the fast step with their son Benjamin, 12, and daughter Vivian, 9. They were accompanied by Brady’s son, John Edward Thomas Moynahan, whom he shares with actress Bridget Moynahan.

It came just hours after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced they were evacuating to the Miami area as the storm approached.

The team said it will practice at the Miami Dolphins facility ahead of 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 scheduled to practice at the Miami Dolphins Baptist Training Complex in Miami Gardens, Fla. beginning Wednesday through the completion of Week 4 preparations, if necessary. The Dolphins play in Cincinnati in Week 4 and would have completed on-field preparations by Wednesday morning.

Tom Brady’s decision to leave became known shortly after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced they were evacuating.

The team said Sunday’s game should still go ahead for now.

« 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. »

« It’s a bit different for me. I’ve never dealt with anything like this. We had COVID for a few years and now it feels like a pretty intense hurricane heading our way, » a- he declared.

“I don’t think Tampa is likely, I don’t think any place is very well suited for a hurricane to hit, but everyone in that area will be in our thoughts and prayers as we go. we will cross it. I know our team is going to have to adapt, go to Miami and practice there for the week, and then 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 getting ready all morning and I’ve taken all my stuff outside, tried to put it inside, tried to get all the stuff at ground level a bit upper.

« I’m right here on the bay so they’re talking about pretty high storm surges and it’s a scary thing. I will say it’s a scary thing when it really hits your door.
