Seven-time Super Bowl Champion and NFL legend Tom Brady celebrated Mother’s Day Sunday by posting tributes to exes Gisele Bündchen and Bridget Moynahan.
In an Instagram post, Brady posted a picture of himself beside his mother, as he wrote the following:
Happy Mothers Day to all these amazing women who have given our family so much throughout their lives. Thank you all for your love, compassion and kindness, and for setting such an amazing example for all of our little ones. We are all so grateful for your support and helping us all achieve our dreams. I wish all the mothers in the world a special day with the people that love them the most.
The post also contained pictures of Moynahan and Bündchen and the children they share with Brady. Bridget Moynahan is the mother of Brady’s oldest son Jack, 15, and Bündchen is the mother of Benjamin, 13, and Vivian, 10.
Bündchen opened up about her relationship with Brady and his kids, including Jack. According to Fox News, she said:
“Everything in life comes with work. You have to go through the roller coaster. You have moments where you get to the sticky points and you’ve gotta overcome it,” she told Vanity Fair of their relationship, which she admitted was not always rosy.
“Love conquers all,” Bündchen added. “My life became so much richer because I got to learn so much from that.… Nothing is worth fighting [over].”
This all comes just days after the Patriots owner Robert Kraft announced plans to bring Tom Brady back for one last home game so that he could be appropriately celebrated by New England fans. In an interview with “NFL Morning Football,” Kraft said:
“The NFL is over a century old, and 20% of those years of the NFL, the greatest player in the history of the game played right here in Foxborough.
“And I’m happy to tell you and your audience that I invited him back to come here and be with us at the opening game and let the fans in New England thank him for the great service he gave us for over 20 years. And it will be the beginning of many celebrations to honor Tom Brady and say thank you for what he did for us those 20 years playing for the New England Patriots.”
Kraft also offered a sincere thank you to his former star quarterback immediately following Brady’s retirement announcement. Kraft said the following on “CNN This Morning:”
“Not only do I want it, our fans are clamoring for it. And to us, he always has been, and always will be a Patriot. “I don’t like to make a commitment for him, but we will do everything in our power to bring him back, have him sign off as a Patriot, and find ways to honor him for many years to come. Because he did so much to bring life and good cheer to our community. And he’s a beloved figure, and he’s earned the respect and love that people feel for him like no other athlete in our town. And we’ve had some great ones.”
