Gisele Bundchen traded Florida heat for sunshine in Brazil.

The supermodel, 42, shared a series of photos on Instagram on Dec 18, revealing that she went to her home country for vacation with her children Benjamin, 13, and Vivian, 10, whom she shares with ex-husband Tom Brady.

Bundchen basked in sunset views, yoga on her patio, pool time with her kids and plenty of sweet treats, the pictures showed.

"Recharging with my little ones in the country of my (heart)!" she captioned her post.

Her family trip comes months after finalising her divorce with Brady. The pair announced the end of their 13-year marriage in statements posted to social media on Oct 28.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, 45, wrote in his statement that he and Bundchen arrived at their decision "amicably and with gratitude for the time we spent together." He added that they would continue to work together as parents.

Bundchen said in a statement posted to Instagram, "The decision to end a marriage is never easy but we have grown apart and while it is, of course, difficult to go through something like this, I feel blessed for the time we had together and only wish the best for Tom always."

Brady and Bundchen tied the knot in February 2009 during a small ceremony in Santa Monica, California, after two years of dating. They share two children: Benjamin and Vivian. Brady also has son John, 15, from a previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynihan. Bundchen said she refers to John as her "bonus child".

Rumours about their relationship circulated in August after Brady missed 11 days of training camp to deal with personal matters. "I'm 45 years old, man. There's a lot of (expletive) going on. You just got to figure out life the best you can," Brady said.

Although Bundchen declined to comment on the speculation, she told Elle Magazine in a September cover story that she would like Brady to "be more present".

"I've done my part, which is (to) be there for (Brady). I moved to Boston, and I focused on creating a cocoon and a loving environment for my children to grow up in and to be there supporting him and his dreams. Seeing my children succeed and become the beautiful little humans that they are, seeing him succeed, and being fulfilled in his career – it makes me happy. At this point in my life, I feel like I've done a good job on that."

Additionally, Bundchen said she has "concerns" about Brady continuing his career: "This is a very violent sport, and I have my children and I would like him to be more present. I have definitely had those conversations with him over and over again." – USA Today/Tribune News Service
