Brady's supermodel wife spoke candidly about her relationship with Tom in a recent interview -- telling the Wall Street Journal she would NEVER force retirement on her man ... knowing he'd resent her for it.
“It’s not my decision to make. It’s his decision, and he knows it. It wouldn’t be fair any other way," Gisele said.
Gisele says all she wants is for Brady to be happy ... though she admits she is concerned over the lasting impact of the concussions he's suffered in his career.
There were some other interesting nuggets in the interview, too -- including Gisele saying Tom is a bigger fashionista than her!
“You should see our closets."
