Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen are a famous power couple with Brady’s stardom in the NFL and Bündchen’s supermodel influence in the world of fashion. Between football and fashion, the entertainment industry couldn’t have imagined a more perfect match.
Until now, the media tend to be the ones that discuss the most when it comes to the longtime couple. However, Brady recently offered some insight into her marriage in an interview with People. As the infallible Hall of Fame quarterback embarks on his 23rd NFL season, he reflects on the support of his wife and mother of his children.
Although Brady has had great teammates to help him with his success on the field, he doesn’t hesitate to credit his wife for her sustained success over the past two decades:
“I think without her, there would be no way I could be doing what I’m doing. It takes an incredible partnership to do it.”
He goes on to shower Bündchen with praise for being an amazing wife and mother:
“I have an amazing wife who is always taking care of our children, always taking care of our family. She is a good influence on me. She has been a huge influence on me for a long time. She is just a great woman.”
The happy couple have a son (13 years old) and a daughter (10 years old) together. Bündchen is also a stepmother to Brady’s 14-year-old son she had with her ex, actress Bridget Moynahan.
Tom Brady faces new challenges in the upcoming NFL season
Before his 23rd season in the NFL, Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be among the favorites to reach the Super Bowl. However, some changes to the coaching staff and roster could present an obstacle to the seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback returning to the big game.
First, head coach Bruce Arians stepped down to take on a front office role while defensive coordinator Todd Bowles took over head coaching duties. As for offensive weapons, Brady’s favorite receiver and close friend, tight end Rob Gronkowski, hasn’t decided whether he’ll return for another season. Talented wide receiver Chris Godwin will be recovering from a torn ACL that he sustained late last season. Unfortunately, he won’t be around for most of the upcoming regular season.
As it is, wide receiver Mike Evans will be one of the few returning stalwarts for Brady to target in the passing game. The veteran QB will also have the services of running back Leonard Fournette. Former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage joined the team to mitigate Godwin’s injury, but the Buccaneers may still be limited without mercurial wide receiver Antonio Brown no longer on the team. Despite the receiver’s behavior, he was still a key player in the Bucs’ passing game.
Tom Brady is used to these challenges, but as the NFL (and NFC) continues to add young talent, the burden of returning to the Super Bowl is ever greater.
