Gisele Bundchen shows off her sculpted figure while paddleboarding with her rumored beau in Miami
Gisele Bundchen slipped into a sassy thong bikini for a paddle boarding date with jiu jitsu Joaquim Valente, in Miami on Saturday, sparking rumors of a hot new romance.
The 42-year-old smiled broadly and donned a shape-revealing exhaust as she pushed herself along the city’s waterways while spending time with the fitness instructor.
The supermodel, who recently auctioned off one of her Stella McCartney dresses, opted for a black bikini top that exposed her toned stomach and sculpted arms.
Bundchen also wore matching bottoms that emphasized her impressively sculpted legs.
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel wore sunglasses that gave her look a little extra darkness.

Bundchen and the jiu-jitsu instructor were first linked last November when they joined each other on a trip to Costa Rica.
But Gisele, who has two children, Benjamin, 13, and Vivian, 10, with Brady, has previously played down rumors of a romance with Valente.
When asked about the status of her relationship with him, she told the April issue of Vanity Fair, “I think at this point, unfortunately, because I’m divorced, I’m sure they’re going to try and commit me to everything. .’
Still, Gisele was full of praise for Joaquim, who trains her and her children in the art of jiu-jitsu and regularly spends time with the fashion star and her children during their frequent trips to his native Costa Rica.
Of Joaquim and his two older brothers – alongside whom he runs a jiu-jitsu training center – the model said: ‘They are great people. They have created this safe space.
“I’m so thankful to know them all because not only have they helped me and my kids, but they’ve become great friends, especially Joaquim.”
Tom and Gisele finalized their divorce on October 28 last year and she described the split as the “death of her dream” – while spreading rumors that she had given the soccer pro an ultimatum, forcing him to choose their relationship over his sporting career.
In the Vanity Fair interview, she described the speculation surrounding her breakup with Tom, 45, as “deeply hurtful”, insisting she just “wanted all his dreams to come true”.

“Listen, I always cheered for him and I would go on forever,” she said. “If there’s one person I want to be the happiest in the world, it’s him, believe me. I want him to achieve and conquer. I want all his dreams to come true. That’s what I really want, from the bottom of my heart.’
While vehemently denying that her divorce had anything to do with Tom’s decision to reverse his retirement from the NFL, Gisele — who added that the split was “like a death and a rebirth” — said the reason behind their split after 13 Years of Marriage was much more innocent, claiming that the couple just “grew apart” and realized they wanted “other things.”
‘Sometimes you grow together; sometimes you grow apart,” she said. “When I was 26 years old and he was 29 years old, we met, we wanted a family, we wanted things together.
“As time goes by, we realize that we just wanted different things, and now we have to make a choice. That doesn’t mean you don’t like the person. It just means that to be authentic and really live the life you want to live, you have to have someone who can meet you in the middle, right? It’s a dance. It’s a balance.’
The supermodel – whose fashion career has seen a huge upswing since her split from Tom – also furiously rejected any suggestion she is “against football”, saying she “has loved” watching her former husband on the pitch.
During her marriage to Tom, Gisele took a step back from her high-profile career, leaving New York and moving to Boston and then Tampa, where her then-husband played for the Patriots and Buccaneers, respectively.
Details of Gisele and Tom’s divorce settlement, especially the details regarding the division of their $700 million shared fortune, have not been made public, but it is understood that the couple will share custody of their two children, who are both living with their mother in Costa Rica in recent weeks.
Prior to their divorce, it was revealed that Gisele’s net worth was actually valued higher than her husband’s; Tom was reportedly worth $333 million while she had a suggested fortune of $400 million, thanks in large part to the many lucrative deals and campaigns she landed during her decades-long fashion career.
Despite their split, the former power couple now appear to be on good terms, and Brady posted a glowing tribute to his ex-wife on Mother’s Day.
The former sports star took to social media to praise Gisele, his ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan and his mother Galynn.
Alongside a series of throwback photos, Tom wrote on Instagram, “Happy Mother’s Day to all these amazing women who have given our family so much throughout their lives. Thank you all for your love, compassion and kindness, and for setting such a great example for all of our little ones. We are all so grateful for your support and helping us all achieve our dreams. I wish all mothers in the world a special day with the people who love them most.’
