Gisele Bündchen is enjoying the great outdoors, and she’s got a great view this week!
Yes, maybe it’s because she’s been sitting on top a majestic steed while out in the Costa Rican jungle. She was just spotted in paparazzi pics this week riding horseback on a scenic route through the Central American nation, after all. Not bad!
But it’s more likely she’s having a great time because the horseback trip was taken with THAT hunky jiu-jitsu pro Joaquim Valente!!

As we’ve been reporting, the Brazilian-born supermodel an the 34-year-old hand-to-hand combat expert aren’t exactly strangers. In fact, they’ve been spending a lot of time together down in Costa Rica recently!
And on Tuesday, that trend continued. Eagle-eyed paparazzi photogs with super-long lenses snapped pics of the 42-year-old model and Valente riding horses together along a jungle path. The duo was all smiles while casually taking in the scenery and enjoying what looked like great weather!
The cover-shot veteran rocked a skin-tight green top with simple jeans and boots for the outing. Joaquim was equally dressed down in a gray t-shirt and backwards hat. You can see the snaps for yourself, via DailyMail.com, at the link HERE.
Obviously, this is a big deal! Gisele and Joaquim keep popping up in each other’s company. Despite Gisele’s denials about something more going on, the two just keep keeping close quarters! Take late last year, when we spotted them enjoying a nice dinner date together.
Or take last week, when an insider reported on their close connection!! As we reported last Friday, an insider revealed key details about the connection these two share following Gisele’s split from football superstar Tom Brady. In comments first published by People, last week’s source cryptically said:
“Gisele adores and trusts [Joaquim] and has been spending a lot of time with him, but I don’t think it’s a traditional dating scenario. They have a deep personal relationship, and he is a teacher to her and the kids. Whether or not it will ever become more than that rests on the table.”
Over the past couple months, other insiders have gone back and forth on whether Joaquim is simply her kids’ jiu-jitsu instructor or something more to the Brazilian bombshell. So basically, we were super sus about that “adores and trusts” comment a few days ago, and seeing this horseback trip, we’re even more sus about it now! Just saying!
After more than a decade of marriage, these two might as well be on different planets at this point… / (c) FayesVision/WENN
Tom, meanwhile, is still in limbo.
We’ve been tracking his most recent podcast comments from earlier this week, where he spoke very candidly about his three kids Jack, 15, Benjamin, 13, and Vivian, 10. But the interesting story is his football future! After all, football is supposedly at the heart of why his marriage with Gisele crumbled last year.
Following the Tampa Bay Buccaneers‘ playoff loss last week to the Dallas Cowboys, Brady spoke to sports journalists assembled in the locker room. While thanking the reporters for their work during the post-game media scrum, TB12 (sort of) addressed his future:
“I’m going to go home and get a good night’s sleep, or as good as I can tonight… This has been a lot of focus on this game, so it’ll just be one day at a time, truly.”
Soooo yeah. He already had a lot to think about after football fizzled this season. And now, by the looks of Gisele horseback hijinks, Tom’s got even more to rack his brain over…
Reactions, Perezcious readers?!
