Tom Brady Reveals ‘Very Difficult Issue’ He and Gisele Face in Their Family

The longer Tom Brady continues to chase his dreams of playing until 50 years old, the more he misses of his kid’s childhood.

Gisele retired from the runway in 2015 after 20 years in the fashion industry, which has allowed her to spend more time at home while Tom is at work.

Tom spoke about raising his kids and the sacrifices made by his wife Gisele.

“I think my wife has, you know, held down the house for a long time now,” Tom said. “And I think there’s things that she wants to accomplish. You know, she hasn’t worked as much in the last 10, 12 years just raising our family and kind of committing to being in a life in Boston and then moving to Florida. But that’s an issue, and it’s a very difficult issue to reconcile without just saying, ‘Hey, it’s time to retire.’ And I think there’s, you know, we’re coming to the end here too, so I don’t want to miss any of the kids’ stuff.”

However football isn’t all year round, at least when he’s expected to be there with the team, which leaves plenty of time for Tom to spend with his children.

“I get a lot of time off, actually,” the athlete said on the podcast. “Football players, we get a good healthy off-season. And I try to do my best with the kids. Although I wish I was there more, but I think if I was there too much, you know, they might be sick and tired of me screwing up everything that’s been going on in the house for a long time too.”

Tom said Gisele “handles a lot of the responsibilities of the house during football season,” while he tries to “balance it out a little more in the off-season.”

“Although a lot of times, I still don’t think I do a great job with that,” he said. “And I think the thing that’s hard for me is that my kids are getting older…They have a lot of questions. They’re very curious about a lot of things. And they’re growing up fast.”

Tom will have the entire second half of his life to spend time with his children. They’ll survive, and if they do a halfway decent job, they should end up being well adjusted adults.

Kids or no kids, a GOAT’s gotta GOAT.
