The Brady clan officially is on the move.

Tom Brady announced Tuesday he's leaving the New England Patriots in free agency, with reports later indicating he'll join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

On Wednesday, it was Gisele Bundchen's turn to say goodbye.

Brady's wife posted a heartfelt tribute to the city of Boston in an Instagram post featuring photos of their three children (one of whom Brady had with his previous wife, Bridget Moynahan).

"Boston has been so good to us and will always be in our hearts," Gisele wrote. "We will forever have wonderful memories. Our kids were born and raised there and we have made special friendships to last a lifetime.

"I'll miss our friends, the beautiful change of seasons and the rides to the stadium to go cheer for Tom and the Pats. Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of my husband and our family throughout all these years."

Gisele had spent over a decade with Brady in the Boston area after the two married in 2009. The family put their Brookline, Mass., home on the market last August in one of the first signs that Brady wouldn't be back in New England.

Gisele probably isn't complaining that she'll get to spend more time in sunny Florida. Brady reportedly also chose the Bucs with family in mind, spurning the Los Angeles Chargers because they were too far away from the family's home base in New York.
