Tom Brady wants to be ‘the best dad’ after divorce from Gisele Bündchen
Tom Brady is making his children a priority following his divorce from Gisele Bündchen.
“I just want to be the best dad I can be,” the NFL star, 45, said on Monday’s episode of “Let’s Go! with Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray” Sirius XM podcast.
Brady also remembered the role his own parents played in his career, saying, “You can do it, son,” which led to his success.
“I just want to be that for my kids,” added the seven-time Super Bowl champion.
Brady has 15-year-old son John with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan and shares two children – Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9 – with Bündchen.
Sources previously said the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback and model’s 13-year marriage was coming to an end because of his decision to ‘not retire’ – and because he was focusing on his career and not on his children.
However, since news of the marital dispute broke, Brady has been seen spending more quality time with all of his children.
In September, Jack, Benjamin and Vivian were all seen attending their father’s first home game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Florida.
Then, in October, the doting dad took his kids on Halloween tricks and volunteering at a local food bank.
On an Oct. 31 episode of his podcast, Brady revealed how he’s coping with balancing parenthood with a demanding profession.
“Obviously the good news is that it’s a very friendly situation and I’m really focused on two things, taking care of my family and certainly my children, and secondly doing my best to win football games,” did he declare.
“So that’s what the professionals do. You focus at work when it’s time to work, then when you get home, you focus on the priorities that are at home.
The soccer star concluded: “All you can do is the best you can do. That’s what I will continue to do as long as I’m working and as long as I’m a dad.
According to court documents previously obtained by Page Six, Brady and Bündchen, 42, were to take a family stabilization course that would help them deal with the impacts divorce can have on parents and children.
The former Victoria’s Secret model wrote on her Instagram Story as she confirmed the former couple’s split, “My priority has always been and will continue to be our children whom I love with all my heart.”
