Gisele Bundchen shared an adorable family photo to celebrate Tom Brady’s 43rd birthday, gushing about the man she called “the best dad, the best partner and the best friend.”
The model took to Instagram to share the photo on Monday, the day the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback turned 43. In the shot, Gisele planted a kiss on her husband’s cheek as they posed with their two children. In the caption, she wrote a sweet message sharing her love and saying she was “looking forward to all the adventures” they have ahead of them. As she often does, the Brazilian model also wrote the caption in her native Portuguese.
Gisele included a second shot of Brady alone, a black-and-white snap which showed him posing outside wearing a dark t-shirt that appeared to be from the same professional shoot that produced her first image.
The pictures drew a big reaction from fans, amassing more than 300,000 likes in just an hour after being shared. Many took to the comments section to compliment the handsome family and wish the NFL MVP a happy birthday.
The mention of “adventures ahead” could be a reference to the quarterback’s new position in Tampa, where the future NFL Hall of Famer landed after leaving the New England Patriots. As The Inquisitr reported, he picked the Buccaneers over other suitors in order to remain closer to his oldest son, Jack, who lives in New York City with his mother, actress Bridget Moynahan.
Gisele’s picture seemed to return the favor from Brady, who just a few weeks ago posted his own gushing tribute on her 40th birthday. As The Inquisitr reported, Gisele hit the milestone on July 20 and her husband honored the occasion by posting a picture to her social media page which showed her posing with their children. In the caption, he told Gisele “You are the sunshine of my life,” quoting the iconic song by Stevie Wonder.
The photo shared on Monday is not out of character for Gisele, who often uses her Instagram page to share intimate glimpses of their life out of the spotlight. She regularly posts snaps from their tropical vacations, showing plenty of family activities. Gisele seems to have a penchant for laying kisses on her husband when they’re in front of the camera. A shot posted a few months ago on Easter showed the couple in a very similar pose, with Gisele leaning over to plant one on her man’s lips during what appeared to be a tropical beach trip.
