Tom Brady shared a sweet moment Sunday with his children ahead of the Buccaneers’ home opener against the Packers amid marital woes with wife Gisele Bündchen.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion, 45, was seen hugging his kids on the sideline at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa after they were brought to the game by Brady’s mother and sisters, People reported Sunday.
Brady has one son, 15-year-old Jack, with his ex Bridget Moynahan. He also shares two children, son Benjamin, 12, and daughter Vivian, 9, with Bündchen.
The 42-year-old supermodel “did not attend” Sunday’s game, per People, with a source stating, “Gisele continues to be dedicated to her kids and is working on personal projects.”
Leading up to the showdown against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, Brady, who has been married to Bündchen since 2009, was said to be “hopeful” Bündchen would attend.
Earlier this month, Page Six exclusively reported that Brady and Bündchen had been at odds over his decision to un-retire from the NFL.
“There’s been trouble in the marriage over his decision to un-retire. Gisele has always been the one with the kids,” a source said at the time.
“They had agreed he would retire to focus on the family, then he changed his mind.”
Brady, who is in his 23rd NFL season, initially announced in February that he was stepping away from the game. He changed course on his NFL future a month later.
“These past two months I have realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands. That time will come. But it’s not now,” Brady posted on Instagram in March.
The Buccaneers opened the 2022 NFL season on the road in Dallas, where they defeated the Cowboys, 19-3. Ahead of kickoff, Bündchen tweeted a message of support to Brady.
