Tom Brady & Gisele Bündchen: Behind The Scenes Of Their Adorable Family Life

Athletes | 11/8/21

Football quarterback Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bündchen are some of the best in their industries. But when they’re not on the field or in front of a camera, these two are nothing more than a mom and dad entertaining their three kids.

From outdoor activities to rooting dad on during the Super Bowl, scroll through to see what family life is like for the two superstars and their children.

Their Oldest: John Edward Thomas Moynahan

Tom Brady’s eldest son, John Edward Thomas Moynahan, better known as Jack, was born in August 2007. Even though Jack was from Brady’s first marriage to actress Bridget Moynahan, Gisele Bündchen considers him her son.

During an interview with Vanity Fair, the model discussed Jack, saying, ” I love him the same way as if he were mine. I already feel like he’s my son from the first day.”

The Middle Child: Benjamin Rein Brady

Benjamin Rein Brady is Brady and Bündchen’s first child together. Born on December 8, 2009, Benjamin is unlike his famous quarterback father in that he isn’t a sports fanatic!

According to Brady, it took some time for him to get used to the idea of his son not being into football. During an interview with Men’s Health, he said, “The reality is that Benny just likes different things. And it’s great because now I just have to go do what he wants to do. When we do that, we have the best time.”

The Youngest: Vivian Lake Brady

The youngest of the Brady and Bündchen clan is Vivian Lake Brady, the only daughter of the famous former couple. Looking like a mini version of her supermodel mother, Vivian is a fierce little girl with a whole lot of love in her life.

Brady even wrote on social media for her fifth birthday, saying, “Looking, loving, and living just like your Mom! Daddy loves you!!!”

Benjamin Has A Family/Water Name (So Does Vivian!)

Brady and Bündchen seemed to think long and hard about what they would name their children. Benjamin’s middle name is in honor of his mother’s late father, whose middle name was Reinoldo. Benjamin’s is Rein.

According to Brady, his ex-wife wanted to give him the first name River, and that was automatically vetoed! Even Vivian has a water-inspired middle name in Lake.

It’s The Quality Of Time Spent With The Family

According to Bündchen, being a parent was difficult due to her and Brady’s busy schedules. But during an interview with Today, she explained that it is “not so much the amount of time. I think it’s the quality of time.”

And from the looks of their social media pictures, it seems that the family has a lot of fun together!

A Mom’s Work Is Never Done

During an interview with People, Gisele Bündchen explained her family dynamic and how being present for her kids and even her former husband, Tom Brady, is very important. She said, “I think the important part is to have fully present moments with everybody.”

“I think that leads to fulfillment because they don’t have half of you, they have all of you in that moment, and then they get recharged.”

Scootin’ Around Town With The Boys

It is no secret the life of a professional football player is very stressful and full of busy days and schedules. But it looks as though Tom Brady tries his best to be there for his kids as often as possible.

During an interview with People, Gisele Bündchen discussed being with her children, saying, “I’m having this experience and having an exchange. I’m not picking up my phone or texting somebody or thinking about my laundry or my dogs.”

The Family Lives In A Beautiful Waterfront Property

Being an international supermodel and the GOAT quarterback in the NFL definitely pays a hefty sum. And that impressive net worth has allowed the couple to purchase a beautiful waterfront property for their entire family to enjoy.

When the family moved to Tampa for Brady to play on the Buccaneers, they purchased a 5,000-square-foot waterfront estate on Indian Creek Island for $17 million!

They Enjoy Time On Viva La Vida, The Family Boat

As it turns out, the Brady Bündchen family is very outdoorsy. They enjoy spending quality time in the sun, something that has been made way easier since they moved from New England down to the Sunshine State of Florida.

After moving, they decided to purchase Viva La Vida, a family boat for everyone to enjoy!

Tom And Giselle Created A Great Life Together

It Is All About “CCC” — Clear, Current Communication

Bündchen has made it clear that their family lives by a certain set of rules. And those rues come down to CCC: clear, current communication.

During an interview with People, she said, “Clear, like, ‘This is exactly how I’m feeling.’ And current, not like, ‘This happened six months ago.’ And you communicate about it. I think that’s helped us a lot.”

Emotions Run Deep For Giselle

Like any family, Brady, Bündchen, and their kids have their ups and downs. During an interview with People, the supermodel spoke of emotions that run throughout the family and how it affects a person.

Everything Isn’t Sunshine And Rainbows

The superstar couple has run into their fair share of issues while they were married, especially considering their busy schedules.

During an interview with E!, Brady spoke of their issues, saying, “The challenging part for us is we are very ambitious people. A lot of the time, I’m going in one direction, and she’s going in the other. It’s ships passing in the night. I’m going to football, and she’s got things she’s doing, and oh, by the way, the kids.”

They Loved Each Other Dearly

One thing is for sure; the couple had no issue gushing over one another and their family over social media. On their tenth anniversary, Brady took to Instagram, writing, “Ten years ago, I didn’t realize how much I could love you and the family we created together.”

“My heart is so full, and I am so blessed! I know our journey has not been easy, but the challenges we have overcome have made our bond stronger and our love grow deeper.”

Giselle Made Sure Tom Helped Around The House

During an interview with Life & Style magazine, the football player discussed how he had to change into a family man, saying, “She felt like I would play football all season and she would take care of the house, and then all the sudden when the season would end, that I’d be like, ‘Great, let me get into all my other business activities. Let me get into my football training.'”
