Gisele Bundchen is likely Tom Brady’s biggest fan, but when it comes to the two children she shares with the New England Patriots quarterback, it’s a much different story.
Brady is arguably the best quarterback ever to play the game, earning three Super Bowl rings and two NFL MVP awards. He’s also earned more than $150 million over the course of his career, ensuring that his kids have quite a comfortable living.
Unfortunately, that’s not enough to make his two children with wife Gisele Bundchen care about football. As Tom Brady addressed the media this week ahead of the Super Bowl, he was asked if his kids care about sports.
“I’ve got one [son] that loves sports,” Brady said, referring to his 7-year-old son Jack with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan. “And another one that doesn’t love sports very much,” he added, talking about his 5-year-old son, Benjamin.
As for Vivian, the 2-year-old daughter he shares with Gisele Bundchen, Brady gave her a pass, saying she’s “not quite old enough yet” to understand. But even if his kids don’t love football, Brady said they love the excitement of it all. “It’s a mixed group in my family right now,” he said. “But they’ll love the excitement of the game, it’s such a unique experience.”
It’s clear that Gisele Bundchen is doing her best to get the kids to love football. This week she shared pictures of the kids all sitting at the breakfast table with their Tom Brady jerseys on.
She shared another shot that showed off a homemade sign cheering on their dad.
While his kids may be lukewarm on his profession, Tom Brady’s wife is anything but. Gisele Bundchen has been known for her passionate support of Brady and the Patriots, which has even gotten her into trouble sometimes. After the team’s loss to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, Bundchen was overheard lashing out at the team’s receiving corps, who dropped several of Brady’s passes.
“My husband can not f****** throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times,” Bundchen was caught on tape saying.
Gisele Bundchen will be back in the the stadium on Sunday when Tom again tries for his fourth Super Bowl ring — and she’ll have all three kids along with her.
