American football legend Tom Brady found himself unwittingly connected to Love Island on Wednesday after receiving some well-meaning advice from former contestant Tommy Fury.
The younger brother of two-time World Heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury delivered an unlikely assessment of Brady’s love-life following his high profile divorce from Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen.
Fury, 23, is currently expecting his first child with girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague after meeting the influencer in the Love Island villa three years ago – and he insists the newly single Brady could do worse than follow in his footsteps.

He told TMZ Sport: ‘I’ve met the woman of my dreams on a show, and now she’s having my children. It’s definitely hope for Tom Brady out there.’
Brady and Bündchen, who share two children, confirmed they were divorcing after 13-years of marriage on October 28.
In a statement posted to Instagram, the athlete called his and Gisele’s decision to end their relationship ‘painful,’ but vowed to put their kids first so that they ‘receive the love and attention they deserve.’

‘In recent days, my wife and I finalized our divorce from one another after 13 years of marriage,’ he wrote. ‘We arrived at this decision amicably and with gratitude for the time we spent together.
‘We are blessed with beautiful and wonderful children who will continue to be the center of our world in every way.
‘We will continue to work together as parents to always ensure they receive the love and attention they deserve.

‘We arrived at this decision to end our marriage after much consideration. Doing so is, of course, painful and difficult like it is for many people who go through the same thing every day around the world.
‘However, we wish only the best for each other as we pursue whatever new chapters in our lives that are yet to be written.’
Bündchen added in a post of her own: ‘My priority has always been and will continue to be our children whom I love with all my heart.
‘We will continue co-parenting to give them the love, care, and attention they greatly deserve.
‘The decision to end a marriage is never easy, but we have grown apart. It is, of course, difficult to go through something like this.’

Wealthy: The former couple, who have an estimated combined net worth of $733million, are believed to have an ‘ironclad prenup’ to quickly settle their divorce
The supermodel concluded by stating that she ‘wished’ her ex ‘the best,’ and said she was ‘blessed’ for the ‘time they had together.’
According to Page Six, an ‘ironclad prenup’ allowed the couple – who have an estimated combined net worth of $733 million – to quickly settle their divorce.
‘They both have their own separate business entities, so the separation of their wealth wasn’t that complicated in the end,’ a source told the publication. ‘The only other major factor was dividing up their massive property portfolio.’

It was claimed that the NFL legend – who is said to be worth approximately $333 million – will gain full ownership of the former couple’s $17 million mansion located in Miami’s Indian Creek Island, which is often referred to as ‘Billionaire Bunker.’
Brady and Bündchen snapped up the waterfront property in 2020 before demolishing it and beginning construction on their dream home, which is still underway.
As for Bündchen – who is considered the highest paid supermodel in the world with an estimated $400 million net worth – sources claim that she will keep their vacation home on the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica.
She quietly purchased a modest $1.25 million Miami Beach home in February and has reportedly purchased a larger property also in the Miami area. They are expected to share custody of their two children.
