On Sunday, Oct. 3, just before Tom’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers took on his old team, the New England Patriots, wife Gisele Bündchen posted a photo to Instagram of herself and the couple’s children Benjamin, 11, and Vivian, 8, as they cheered on the superstar quarterback. Gisele, who had a big smile on her face, was wearing Tom’s Bucs jersey, as was Benjamin.
“We are ready! Let’s go Bucs!! Let’s go papai!!! [heart emoji],” the 41-year-old model captioned the post. She also translated the message into her native Portuguese.
It appeared that his family’s well-wishes went a long way. Not only did Tom, 44, top the Patriots and his former coach, Bill Belichick, by a score of 19 to 17 in a tightly fought battle, but he broke Drew Brees‘ mark for the most career passing yards in NFL history.
