Aside from winning the Super Bowl (seven times), marrying his supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen and raising their kids are probably his greatest achievement.
“My kids and my family is certainly very important and they made a lot of sacrifice over a long period of time to watch me play. So, you know, I owe it to them, too,” he said in July 2021 during an interview with SiriusXM Town Hall, referencing his wife and their kids, Benjamin, 11, Vivian, 8, and his son John “Jack” Edward, 14, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan.
“Things change as you get older and there’s a lot of different responsibilities I have in my life,” he added.
Though Gisele has been a huge support system for her husband, she too is wondering when Tom will say farewell to football. While chatting in March 2021 with James Corden on The Late Late Show following his most recent Super Bowl victory, Tom revealed that when his family ran onto the field to congratulate him, Gisele whispered in his ear, “What more do you have to prove?”
However, Tom said he changed the subject. “I think I moved on to something else pretty quickly,” he recalled.
For now, it seems the G.O.A.T wants to add a few more rings to his collection.
