Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen Are The World’s Highest Paid Celebrity Couple

Move aside, all the Brad and Angelina’s, David and Victoria’s and Captain & Tennille’s of the world. Sadly, you and the rest of your power couple ilk now have been usurped: Forbes has named New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel wife, Gisele Bündchen, as the highest-earning couple in the world. And really, would we want it any other way?

Thanks to a monster year filled with fashion and endorsement deals, not to mention a few business ventures that could put her on the road to becoming the world’s first billionaire supermodel, Bundchen pocketed a massive $45 million over the 12-month period. Not to be overshadowed by his more famous wife, Brady – who signed a four-year, $72 million contract extension in September with the New England Patriots, NFL’s richest deal on an annual basis – brought home another $31 million, putting the couple’s combined annual earnings at $76 million.

Allow me to be the first to congratulate the two on their ascension to the top of list of über-rich celebrity couples. It was a hard-earned title, and more than that, it was much deserved. And we all know what this news indicates for the globetrotting future of Tom and Gisele: more glamorous, booty-shaking vacations to Rio, not to mention more waterslide frivolity. Oh, the waterslides:

Whee!
