Bundchen also had nothing but wonderful things to say about Valente and his brothers Pedro and Gui, who also teach martial arts.

“I’m so grateful to know all of them, because not only have they helped me and helped my kids, but they have become great friends, and Joaquim especially. He's our teacher and, most importantly, he's a person that I admire and that I trust. It's so good to have that kind of energy, to have my kids around that type of energy,” she said.

Earlier this year, an unnamed source told People that Bundchen and Valente share a tight bond. However, the two aren’t in a rush for anything romantic between them to happen.

“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,” the source said.
