Tom Brady and the Buccaneers hosted a special guest Wednesday at practice: the quarterback’s 15-year-old son.h son
Ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, Brady watched his teenage son Jack hit the field while the seven-time Super Bowl champ looked on proudly.
“My inspiration,” Brady remarked in an Instagram post.
Jack, whom Brady co-parents with his ex, actress Bridget Moynahan, plays free safety for his high school team, as well as some quarterbacking. Brady, 45, later told reporters how much the outing with his son meant to him.
“It’s the best,” Brady said, per TMZ. “I had him out here for training camp last year, which was amazing for a dad. It was pretty special. As much as I can be around him, the better it is.”
In addition to Jack, Brady is also a proud dad to son Benjamin 12, and daughter Vivian, 9, whom he shares with ex-wife Gisele Bündchen.
Upon confirming their divorce last month after 13 years of marriage, Brady and Bündchen, 42, stated how their children remain their top priority.
“We are blessed with beautiful and wonderful children who will continue to be the center of our world in every way. We will continue to work together as parents to always ensure they receive the love and attention they deserve. We arrived at this decision to end our marriage after much consideration,” Brady said in October.
Brady recently expressed on his SiriusXM podcast, “Let’s Go!” how grateful he is for family at this time of year.
“You know, I think myself as a parent and being grateful during Thanksgiving, it’s always time for family. When you think about this holiday and the commitment that parents make and that my parents made to me and my career is unbelievable. You know what I mean?” Brady remarked.
“It’s just, I’m here in my 23rd season, looking forward to finishing strong here after Thanksgiving, and obviously with a lot of gratitude for the people that have made such a huge impact in my life and supported me throughout this amazing career. And, you know, I just want to be that for my kids. You know, I just wanna be the best dad I could be.”
Brady and the Buccaneers will travel to Cleveland this weekend for Sunday’s game against the Browns.
