Tom Brady says he’s focused on kids and winning games after Gisele split ‘amicably’
TAMPA, Fla. – For the first time since his speech Gisele Bundchen’s divorce was finalized last week, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady said on his “Let’s go!” podcast As of Monday night, the split was “amicable” and his focus is on his children and winning football games.
“I think there are a lot of working professionals in life that go through things that they deal with at work and at home,” Brady said. “And of course the good news is that it’s a very consensual situation and I’m really focused on two things – looking after my family and certainly my kids and secondly trying my best to win football games.
“So that’s what professionals do. You focus on work when it’s time to work, and when you get home you focus on home priorities. And all you can do is the best you can do, and that’s what I’m just going to keep doing as long as I’m working, as long as I’m a dad.”
Brady and Bundchen, who have been married for 13 years, share joint custody of two children, Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9. Brady said they spent the weekend in Tampa, which included going to the movies. They also volunteered with Operation BBQ Relief, assembling and delivering groceries to families affected by Hurricane Ian in Englewood and North Port.
Brady also has a 15-year-old son, Jack, with actress Bridget Moynahan. They live in New York.
The 45-year-old signal caller acknowledged the challenge of not just keeping things sealed, but bringing private matters of his life into the public eye while his team fights to keep them climb out of a 3-5 hole.
“I think that’s what it means to be a professional. So over 23 years, I’ve dealt with a lot of challenging situations on and off the pitch, and a lot of it happens in front of a lot of people,” Brady said. “I think the interesting thing for a football player, an athlete in general, is that you’re out there – I always say we’re not actors, even though we’re on TV – that’s our real selves out there and we’re trying our best give.
“That’s how people really got to know me over the years by being on TV. And that’s an authentic self that’s out there to compete with my teammates every day. And you give the team everything you can and you know everyone goes through different things. We all have our unique challenges in life and we are all human and we do our best.”
Brady reiterated the importance of family in his life and being a presence in his children’s lives and also in living a life he can be proud of.
“I have incredible parents who have always taught me how to do things right. And I want to be a great father to my kids and always try to make things right. And dealing with things that are in your life, that have challenges, you want to deal with them in the best way possible, so I always want to keep my head up on and off the pitch and I’ll try to do that for as long as I’m here.”
