Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans, Tom Brady fans, and 43 year olds everywhere cheered as Brady led his new team to victory at Super Bowl LV last night.
If anyone were still in doubt that Tom Brady is the GOAT, doubt no more. Brady has won seven of the 10 Super Bowls he’s played, and been awarded MVP five times. He’s also the oldest player to ever play in a Super Bowl at 43. Furthermore, Brady secured a Super Bowl win in his home stadium — a first for NFL history.
But on top of being the winningest football player, he’s also winning in another area of his life — his family.
Tom Brady has been married to Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen for 12 years, and they have two kids together, Benjamin (11) and Vivian (8). Brady also has a son, Jack (13), from a previous relationship.
Tom and Gisele were set up by a friend in December 2006, and it was love at first sight for Gisele.
“I knew right way — the first time I saw him,” she told Vanity Fair in 2009. “We met through a friend. The moment I saw him, he smiled and I was like, ‘That is the most beautiful, charismatic smile I’ve ever seen!'”
She later said, “You know, when I saw those kind eyes, I literally fell in love, like, right away. I was like, ‘What?’ He was just so — you know how sweet he is.”
They got engaged in January 2009 and married a month later.
Since then, Gisele has been a staunch fan of Brady and his football career. Both she and the kids cheer him on, week after week, whether from home or the stadium.
And Brady is happy to include his family in his professional life and celebrate with them. He even lets his kids hold the Lombardi Trophy every time he wins the Super Bowl.
Watch Brady hug his son Jack after winning the AFC Championship.
And just look at how happy he is to see his kids and wife after winning the Super Bowl last night. Doesn’t that just warm your heart?
It’s clear he loves being a husband and dad. And for bonus warm fuzzies, watch Tom Brady talk about his dad (I’m not crying, you’re crying).
