Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen left their fabulous life in New England behind for the warth of Tampa Bay.

The quarterback announced last offseason that he would part ways with the New England Patriots and sign with the Buccaneers. While the departure was a major lifestyle shift for the duo, which is often regarded as one of the country's best power couples, Brady has found remarkable success on the gridiron with the Bucs.

Bündchen was the highest-earning model in the world for 10 consecutive years, according to Forbes. Brady has earned six Super Bowl rings and three league MVP awards as a quarterback. Bündchen and Brady married in 2009 and together they lead an extremely fabulous life.

And now he's in the hunt for more hardware with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The couple made a big life change by swapping the cold winters of New England for the warmth and humidity of Tampa Bay in 2020, when Brady signed with the Bucs.

They bought a gorgeous, 5,000-square-foot waterfront estate on Indian Creek Island for $17 million.

And became neighbors with other celebrities on Miami's "Billionaires Bunker," including Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Adriana Lima, and billionaire Carl Icahn.

Of course, the couple had no choice to buy a boat to fully enjoy life in The Sunshine State. They picked up the multi-million dollar tab on their swanky new ship — "Viva La Vida."

Many months after they moved to Florida, Brady and Bündchen sold their mansion in the Boston suburbs for a whopping $33 million.

Bündchen reigned over the modeling world for well over a decade and was the top-earning supermodel for 10 consecutive years. Even though she retired in 2015, Bündchen was still one of the top-5 highest-paid models of 2018.

In his last season with the Patriots, the team paid Brady $23 million. He regularly agreed to discount contracts throughout his career to help keep New England competitive.

And the Bucs are paying him a cool $15,000,000 salary and $10,000,000 roster bonus for the 2020-2021 NFL season.

He is the second-highest-paid player in NFL history, having already earned $261.8 million in his NFL career.

Brady has also made an estimated $12 million annually in endorsement deals with companies like Under Armour, Intel, Beats by Dre, and Shields.

Brady's earnings sound enormous, but it's actually nothing compared to his wife.

Forbes reported in July 2016 that Bündchen had earned an estimated $30.5 million throughout the prior year.

She's had a number of extremely lucrative endorsement deals with major brands, including Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, and Pantene.

Additionally, Bündchen has made tons of money by allowing companies to monetize her name and likeness. She had a sandals line with Grendene, lingerie brand with Hope, beauty line with Sejaa Pure Skincare, and others.

Brady has also had some exciting endorsement deals, including a partnership with Aston Martin.

Aston Martin even produced a limited Tom Brady edition of the Vanquish S Volante. Only 12 were produced and they went for $360,000 each.

Together, Brady and Bündchen once owned a custom-built, $20 million mansion in Los Angeles.

It had a moat and a chicken coop so they could eat fresh eggs.

But in 2014, they sold the estate to Dr. Dre for a reported $40 million.

In 2013, they were reportedly searching for a new apartment in NYC. They were spotted looking at a $11.5 million duplex in Manhattan that spring.

They eventually settled on a glassy skyscraper condo that they purchased for $14 million in 2013.

In 2016, they put that condo back on the market with a price tag of $17.25 million.

That's because they reportedly dropped $20 million on a new waterfront apartment in Tribeca.

Prior to New York, they lived in a Boston condo, but sold it for $9.2 million in 2012.

The homes are basically Brady's only lavish purchases.

Outside of his Aston Martin, his cars aren't too gaudy. He got in an accident in 2010 while driving an Audi sedan.

He told ESPN that he's a homebody and has to talk to his friends' kids about music so he knows what's popular.

He even likes to do silly things like welcome a rescue dog to the family with a "Lion King" video on Facebook.

He does attend lots of high-profile events though, from the Kentucky Derby …

… to Brazil's famed Carnival …

… to the Met Gala. He and Bündchen were co-chairs of the event in 2017.

The duo also attended the 2014 FIFA World Cup and were spotted hanging out with Ashton Kutcher.

But Brady insists that he prefers to avoid a flashy lifestyle. He doesn't own a private jet, but sometimes arranges one to bring his parents to visit him.

He's just a dad who likes making sand castles with his kids.

Brady also spends time raising money for various charities, including $6.5 million for cancer research by buzzing his hair in 2018.

Bündchen also prioritizes her philanthropic work. She donated a whopping $1.5 million to relief efforts in Haiti in 2009 and regularly supports the United Nations, WWF, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, (RED), and St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters.

She also works with a number of nonprofits to help benefit her birth country, Brazil. She donates a percentage of the profits from her sandals line to protect Amazon Rainforest water sources while supporting other Brazilian initiatives like Y Ikatu Xingu, Nascentes do Brasil, De Olho nos Mananciais, and ISA.

More recently, it seems like most of Brady's and Bündchen's big spending is health-based.

Brady and Gisele have a personal chef who has them on a strict diet that includes no sugar, no tomatoes, and avocado ice cream as a treat.

The chef even has the couple's children on a strict diet that is about 80% vegetables.

In 2016, Brady wrote a $200 diet book that sold out almost immediately when it was first released.

In 2017, Brady had a more modestly priced book drop. "The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance," is less than $20 and is being called "The Athletes Bible."

He is also strict on alcohol, even putting Rob Gronkowski on a drinking diet. But Brady does splurge occasionally, — including on New Year's Eve, apparently, as he said on Instagram that he was curing his hangover with some TB12 electrolytes on New Year's Day 2018.

Bündchen is also a stickler for clean eating habits, prioritizing home-grown foods.

Brady also employs a 'body coach' and health guru, Alex Guerrero, who works with Brady at least once every day and whose duties include spiritual guide, counselor, pal, nutrition adviser, trainer, and massage therapist.

Bündchen, meanwhile, regularly practices yoga and mindfulness.

She even practices with her kids.

And, on occasion, the duo will play some football in their backyard.

Brady and Bündchen take offseason vacations with the family to places like Asia (on behalf of his partnership with Under Armour, of course).

But no matter where their lavish lives or impressive careers take them, Brady and Bündchen manage to speak every single day.

But despite the occasional lavish trip, Brady and Bündchen are the rare celebrity couple that can actually afford to live a megastar lifestyle, but opt to live more modestly — relative to other high-earning megastars, at least.
