Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen may be stars on the football field and in front of the camera, but they’re just mom and dad at home, and their family is seriously cute. After tying the knot in 2009, the supermodel and NFL quarterback welcomed two kids together, Benjamin and Vivian, who joined Brady’s first child, Jack, from a previous relationship.
Both mom and dad have been open about prioritizing their children, with Bündchen telling Elle in a September 2022 interview that she took a step back on her career to focus on the kids. “I moved to Boston, and I focused on creating a cocoon and a loving environment for my children to grow up in and to be there supporting [Brady] and his dreams,” she said. “Seeing my children succeed and become the beautiful little humans that they are, seeing him succeed, and being fulfilled in his career — it makes me happy. At this point in my life, I feel like I’ve done a good job on that.”
Brady got candid about fatherhood during an episode of his ESPN docuseries “Man in the Arena,” in which he grew emotional about trying to follow in his dad’s shoes as a parent. “I’m a dad to some amazing children. When I think about being a dad, I think of him because of what my dad meant to me,” he said tearfully, per People. “I know I’m not as good a dad to my kids that my dad’s been to me. I use them as my example of how to keep a family together and to care, to support, and how to love.”
Brady also talked about his unique challenges as a wealthy parent on Spotify’s “Drive With Jim Farley” podcast in July, which he received backlash for on social media. But, in the same interview, he defended his comments and noted that, because of his wealth, he wants his kids to understand they experience a different childhood from most other kids.
After announcing his retirement earlier this year, and subsequently calling for his return to the NFL, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers player is set to play in his 23rd football season this fall. But even between balancing the field and home life, Brady and his family of five still manage to spend lots of time together. They occasionally post adorable photos on Instagram, usually doing some kind of outdoor or physical activity, or attending Brady’s football games.
