“MA has been my home for twenty years. It has truly been the happiest two decades I could have envisioned in my life and I have nothing but love and gratitude for my time in New England,” he continued. “The support has been overwhelming – I wish every player could experience it.”

The 42-year-old pro-athlete continued by praising the NFL and acknowledged their acceptance towards him. “My children were born and raised here and you always embraced this California kid as your own,” he wrote. “I love your commitment and loyalty to your teams and winning for our city means more than you will ever know. I can’t thank you enough for the support of our team. The packed training camps and sold out stadiums and mostly the victory parades. I have been so blessed to share them with you all.”

Showing love to her superstar husband, the former Victoria’s Secret Angel added another sweet note that simply read, “Te amo.” Gisele, who shares two children with the NFL star, Benjamin, ten and Vivian, seven, stars on the cover of Marie Claire’s April Changemakers issue.

In an exclusive with the magazine, the Brazilian beauty opens up about her environmental activism and her strive towards living a more sustainable life. “We do our best, but it can be challenging when it comes to living completely green—and that’s OK. I always remind my kids that every choice we make has an impact on our planet and that we always need to try our best; that’s what matters,” she said.
