Donald Trump might have spoken too soon when he said pal Tom Brady voted for him, because the Patriot star's wife, Gisele Bündchen, just told the world that her family won't be casting their ballot for the Republican nominee.

MORE: Tom Brady Endorses Donald Trump, Says "It Would Be Great" if He Becomes President

Rumors about Brady endorsing Trump first began circulating last year, when the candidate’s signature “Make America Great Again” hat was found in the athlete’s locker. Brady even said that “it would be great” if Trump were president, though he later backtracked on the endorsement.

On Monday, however, it appeared as if the rumors were true. Trump told supporters at a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire that the quarterback called him and said that he voted for him.

“Great guy, great friend of mine — great, great champion. Unbelievable winner … he [Brady] called today and he said, ‘Donald, I support you, you’re my friend, and I voted for you,’” Trump told the crowd, many of them Patriots fans. “And I said, ‘So Tom. You voted for me, you support me, am I allowed to say it tonight at this massive crowd in New Hampshire?’ He said, ‘If you want to say it, you can say it.’ OK? Tom, that’s what a champ is all about.”

Interestingly, that same day Brady was asked on Boston’s “Kirk & Callahan Show” whether he had gone to the polls yet, and the football player responded, “No, I haven’t voted yet.”

By the evening, Bündchen had received a question from a fan on Instagram asking if it were true that she and her husband were pro-Trump.

“Gisele I heard you and Tom were backing Trump! Is that true??” they asked.

The Brazilian superstar responded bluntly: “NO!”
