The former couple's official announcement did not come as a shock to people online as rumors of the two's separation have circulated for weeks.

Brady and Bündchen's marriage sparked conversation online earlier this year when Brady announced he would retire from the NFL to spend time with family, then reversed the decision.

People have been quick to criticize Brady for choosing to continue his football career.

Brady and Bündchen got married in 2009 after three years of dating.

Since news of the two's divorce first began, people have created memes about Bündchen watching Brady's team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, lose their last three games.

But now that the two are over some have suggestions as to who Bündchen should date next.
