EXCLUSIVE: Gisele Bundchen arrives at jiu-jitsu instructor – and rumored beau – Joaquim Valente’s gym in Miami following trip to Brazil… after he picked her up at the airport
She seemingly denied that they were an item in an interview from earlier this year.
But Gisele Bündchen continued to stay close to the hunky jiu-jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente’s orbit during an outing on Saturday.
The 43-year-old model and ex-wife of Tom Brady was spotted arriving at Valente’s gym in Miami while rocking a workout-ready ensemble.
Despite her protestations, she and the martial artist appeared to be closer than ever after he took the unusual step of picking her up at Miami International Airport when her flight arrived in the early morning hours on Friday.
She looked fresh and ready by the following day when she was seen climbing out of her SUV wearing a white tank top that highlighted her toned arms.

Gisele contrasted the top with a low-key set of dark blue leggings emphasizing her long, slender legs.
She capped off the athleisure ensemble with gray trainers, and she carried along an aquamarine water bottle, as well as a gray handbag draped over her shoulder.
The Brazilian beauty had her long dirty blond hair tied back in a ponytail, and she sported a natural face.
She was getting back to focusing on fitness after taking a holiday to her birth country Brazil.
Joaquim also happens to hail from the South American country.
While Gisele indulged in the delights of Brazil, her ex-husband Tom was traveling in Africa with their daughter in celebration of his 46th birthday.
In a recent interview with Vogue Brazil, Gisele reflected on the difficulties of getting divorced under the glare of the public eye.
‘Breakups are never easy, especially when there’s a whole media speculating every step of the way,’ she told the magazine.
‘I’ve always trusted that every situation, no matter how challenging, has something to teach us and happens for our growth.’
Rumors have been flying about Gisele and Joaquim since November, fueled by their frequent public sightings together including on trips to Costa Rica.
