There was more to Tom Brady’s post-Super Bowl embrace with wife Gisele Bündchen in Tampa Bay last month.
During an appearance Tuesday on “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” Brady — now the owner of seven Super Bowl titles — spoke about the moments after his Tampa Bay Buccaneers topped the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 2021.
“I was looking for my family,” the 43-year-old quarterback recalled. “All the sudden I see my oldest son [Jack] run over to me, ‘Dad!’ you know, and I gave a big hug. I saw my two little ones [daughter Vivian and son Benjamin], and then all of the sudden I saw my wife, and I gave her a big hug.”
Brady said his wife of 12 years then asked him: “What more do you have to prove?”
“I was trying to figure out a way to change the subject really quick,” Brady said of his response. “I think I moved on to something else pretty quickly.”
Following Brady’s first Super Bowl win with his new team, Bündchen posted a family photo to Instagram that featured their two children, Vivian, 8, and Benjamin, 10, and 13-year-old Jack, whom Brady shares with his ex, Bridget Moynahan.
“Congratulations my love! Over the years I have seen you overcome so much adversity, physically and emotionally. I can for sure say you are the most dedicated, focused and mentally tough person I have ever meet,” Bündchen, 40, posted at the time.
“It has been a challenging year and watching you in a new environment, putting in the extra time to get to know and support your teammates, working with your new coaches with respect and grace, waking up extra early every day to deal with the bumps and bruises of playing football, never complaining, you just kept focusing on your goal to go out there and be the best leader you can be.”
Bündchen has broached the retirement subject before. After Brady led the Patriots to a Super Bowl comeback over the Falcons in 2017, Bündchen expressed concern over concussions in an interview with CBS.
“He had a concussion last year. He has concussions pretty much every …” she said, before cutting herself off. “I mean, we don’t talk about it. But he does have concussions. I don’t really think it’s a healthy thing for anybody to go through.”
While this is Brady’s first season in Tampa Bay following 20 seasons in New England, Bündchen was already convinced in late 2018 that any retirement chatter would go in his ear and out the other.
“I haven’t been very successful.” the Brazilian-born model told Saints fan Ellen DeGeneres at the time. “I want him to do whatever makes him happy.”
Last month, Brady said he will “definitely consider” playing past the age of 45. He turns 44 in August.
