Tom Brady was the talk of NFL free agency last month as many wondered if he would leave the New England Patriots, who he had spent all 20 of his seasons with as well as winning six Super Bowls. A surprise team emerged and secured his services and that is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as they feel that Brady has plenty of gas left in the tank at the age of 42. At this point, he’s regarded as the best quarterback in NFL history.
Brady recently appeared in an interview with Howard Stern and one topic that was asked was regarding the beginning of his relationship with his wife, Gisele Bündchen. When that relationship started, his ex-girlfriend, Bridget Moynahan. got pregnant with their now-12-year-old son, John. Brady said that during this time, he found out a lot about Giselle during this crazy situation in a good way.
“It was an interesting time because we found out after, that my ex-girlfriend was pregnant with my oldest son,” Brady explained. “We were forced into this very important thing in our lives at a new part of our relationship.”
“In a lot of ways, I found out a lot about Gisele through this experience, and she found out a lot about me dealing with a situation that was not a very easy one,” added Brady.”
Brady and Bündchen now have a 10-year-old son named Benjamin and a seven-year-old daughter named Vivian as well. He acknowledged that it first, he knew it was tough for Bündchen to date a man who is dealing with this.
“It was very hard for my wife to think she fell in love with this guy, and now this guy’s ex-girlfriend’s pregnant. And it was very challenging for my son’s mom because she didn’t envision that either.”
“I think we all made the best of the situation, and fortunately, he’s the most amazing son at 12 years old. My heart explodes when I think of him. He’s the greatest kid you could ever ask for.”
Brady and Bündchen originally met back in December of 2006 and they clicked right away. They were initially introduced by a mutual friend.
“I got introduced to her by a mutual friend and I would say it was a ‘blind date’ but it wasn’t because I knew what she looked like,” said Brady. “I had gotten out of a relationship and she had been out of a long-term relationship. When we met, I wasn’t quite sure if I was ready for a relationship. I wasn’t sure I was, but we met and we hit it off.”
At times, Bündchen felt that Brady was so invested into football that he needed to do more things at home such as take the kids to school or take care of things inside the house. This also happened after the season would end and Brady wanted to participate in offseason workouts.
“A couple of years ago, she didn’t feel like I was doing my part for the family. She felt like I would play football all season, and she’d take care of the house,” Tom said. “Then, when the season ended, I’d be like ‘great, let me get into all my other business activities, let me get into my football training,’ and she’s going ‘when are you going to do for things for the house? When are you going to take the kids to school?’ That was a big part of our marriage.”
Now, the two are officially going to be enjoying life in southwest Florida. Brady and Gisele have since sent 750,000 meals to families in Tampa Bay amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Bucs are expected to be a playoff team and it will be an interesting situation considering the fact that the NFL expanded to 14 total teams in the playoffs.
