New England Patriot quarterback and NFL phenom, Tom Brady, who everyone either loves or loves to hate, isn’t used to losing. He’s won many different ways in life – having been named the champion of an impressive five Super Bowls, to scoring a Supermodel wife who he has two gorgeous children with. For Brady, life is pretty sweet, but that winning streak seems to have come to an end.
Everyone loves the Super Bowl for its half-time show, guac, and beer — and of course the game! What people typically don’t think about is how the win or loss affects the player’s families. It’s been one month since the Patriot’s unexpected and major Super Bowl upset, having loss to the Philedelphia Eagles, who were the so-call “underdogs” of the game. The Eagles are still celebrating their massive win still today, since it was more than just scoring a coveted ring they worked hard for. They also broke an unprecedented 57-year Super Bowl drought.
It’s no secret that the big game was a minumental upset for the fan-favorite football star, Tom Brady, who was blunt about his feelings immediately after. In a straghforward statement that seemed like something a sore loser kid in a recreation league would say, Brady simply told reporters,“I mean, losing sucks,” according to the Boston Globe. However, he’s still a man who has made history time and time again. Only hours after the game, Brady connected with his family and this sweet picture was caught. Shortly after, his wife released a devastating statement.

Supermodel Gisele Bündchen posted this sweet family photo on her Instagram account where she also wrote, “Congratulations Eagles for winning the Super bowl, what a game that was! Congratulations Patriots for giving your best and to my love, we are incredibly proud of you because we are able to see ever day all the commitment, sacrifice and hard work that you have devoted to become the best in what you do. We love you!”
This pic has touched the hearts of so many fans! It’s a great reminder that even celebrities experience pain and downfalls. It is clear that Tom has an ironclad family who is there to love and support him. Although it must have been devastating to see her husband lose, Gisele saw it as an opportunity to teach her kids a very important lesson.
As reported by USAToday, Brady’s two sons were visibly upset after the game so Gisele, trying her best to console them said,“They haven’t won in a million years.”
Vivian, Tom’s 5-year-old daughter said out loud, “The Eagles won the Super Bowl.’’ when Bündchen replied, “Just this time. Daddy won five times. They never won before. “Their whole life, they never won a Super Bowl. You have to let someone else win sometimes.’’ If only more adults could be taught this same sentiment!
She was seen wiping tears from the faces of her two youngest, Benjamin and Vivian explaining to them, “Sometimes you have to let other people win. We have to share. Sharing is caring.’’
While waiting to meet up with her husband, Gisele congratulated several of the Eagles players and giving them handshakes.
The kids were desperate to see their dad and kept asking for him. The family was reunited moments later.
Gisele, clearly the epitome of tact and grace made a follow-up post to the opposing team on Instagram once more saying, “Congratulations Eagles for winning the Super Bowl, what a game that was!”
What a game indeed! No matter which team you were cheering for, I think we can all cheer for this “Brady Bunch” and their family values!
