Who is Tony Romo's wife? Ex-NFL star slammed for 'offensive' comment on Gisele Bündchen
Tony Romo while commenting 'offered' a date to a fan with Tom Brady's wife in exchange for his 600th touchdown ball
Former American football quarterback and analyst Tony Romo, who played in the National Football League for 14 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, is facing backlash over a comment he made about Tom Brady’s wife Gisele Bündchen during the ‘NFL on CBS’ broadcast. Bündchen has long been one of the highest-paid models in the world.
On Sunday, October 24, the Buccaneers had to track down Brady’s 600th touchdown ball, which wide receiver Mike Evans unknowingly gave to a fan. Evans, who caught the 600th touchdown ball, was unaware of the historic moment and gave the ball to a fan wearing his No 13 jersey. After a brief negotiation with a Buccaneers official, Byron Kennedy, the 29-year-old fan who got the ball, handed it back.

CBS cameras of course caught the exchange, and commentator Romo offered a decidedly weird narration of the events. “A date with Gisele. A date with Gisele and I’m in,” Romo said, acting as the fan. “OK, Tom will do it. One time, you got it,” Romo continued, pretending to voice the Buccaneers official.
Online, Romo was slammed for this. One tweet said, “No @tonyromo, Tom wouldn’t do it. And a wife isn’t property to be offered up as a bargaining chip. And yes - I understand the attempt at comedy - but it wasn’t funny.” One person wrote, “Joking about offering a date with someone’s wife? Off limits,” which another person replied, “Came here for this comment. they love talking about Tom's wife any chance they get. dude they needa respect their marriage & leave her tf alone.”
Another tweet said, “The remark about a ‘date with Gisele’ was totally offensive and inappropriate. Romo insulted Tom, his wife, and women in general with his comment. Romo needs to go away and the other guy laughing at the comment was so wrong.” Another fan said, “Tony Romo just joked that the fan with the 600 td ball should give it back in exchange for a date with Giselle. Twice. What a piece of shit.”

What a piece of shit.
Brady and Bündchen met through friends in 2006 and started dating the same year in December. “I knew right way -- the first time I saw him,” the model said in 2009. “We met through a friend. The moment I saw him, he smiled and I was like, ‘That is the most beautiful, charismatic smile I’ve ever seen!’ We sat and talked for three hours. I had to go home for Christmas, but I didn’t want to leave. Do you know that feeling of, like, you can’t get enough? From the first day we met, we’ve never spent one day without speaking to each other.”
“I’m blessed to find this life partner that we all kind of seek at different times in our life,” Brady said in 2016. “We found each other at the right time. We’ve been through a lot of ups and downs together, and in so many ways, that’s kind of built our relationship so strong.”
Following a brief engagement, Brady and Bündchen tied the knot in Santa Monica in February 2009. "We planned it in like 10 days, and it was perfect," Brady said in an interview. "We went back to the house and I barbecued aged New York strips. We had champagne, a cake, some ice cream. It was a great night. I think you always have this idea that weddings need to be 200 people and you invite everybody, and I'm all for it if people want to do that, but I think there was really something special about just having our parents there."
Bündchen and Brady have two children - son Benjamin Rein and daughter Vivian Lake. Bündchen is the stepmother of Brady's first son from a previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.
