Tom Brady says his kids and winning games are priorities after divorce | Tom Brady
Tom Brady has publicly addressed his future for the first time since then confirms divorce from Gisele Bündchen.
“I think there are a lot of professionals in life who go through things that they deal with at work and that they deal with at home,” Brady said on his Let’s Go! podcast on Monday. “And obviously the good news is that the situation is very friendly and I’m really focused on two things: taking care of my family and certainly the kids, and secondly, doing the best job I can to win football games.
“So that’s what professionals do. You focus on work when it’s time to work, and then when you get home you focus on priorities at home. And all you can do is the best you can do, and I’ll do that as long as I work, as long as I’m a dad.”
Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers he struggled with injuries and poor form and are 3-5, despite being tipped by many to reach the Super Bowl this season from a relatively weak NFC. The 45-year-old said that dealing with personal matters in public is part of being a professional athlete.
“I’ve faced a lot of challenging situations on and off the field over 23 years, and a lot of it has played out in front of a lot of people,” Brady said. “So I think the interesting thing for, you know, a football player, an athlete in general, you’re out there – I always say we’re not actors, even though we’re on TV – it’s our real selves out there and we try to do our best.
“That’s how people really got to know me over the years, by being on TV. And that’s the authentic me that’s there to compete with my teammates every day. And you give everything you can to the team and you know, everybody goes through different things. We all have our unique challenges in life and we are all human and doing the best we can.”
The seven-time Super Bowl champion has two children with Bundchen, as well as a son with actress Bridget Moynahan. He said that fatherhood is one of his priorities.
“I have amazing parents who always taught me how to do things,” he said. “And I want to be a great father to my children and always try to do things the right way.” And to deal with the things that are in your life, that have challenges – you want to deal with them in the best possible way. That’s why I want to always be able to hold my head high on and off the field, and I’ll try to do that as long as I’m here.”
The Buccaneers next game is against the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
