Tom Brady pays tribute to ex-wife Gisele Bundchen on Mother’s Day with an Instagram post featuring his own mother Galynn and Bridgette Moynahan – the mother of his son Jack
Tom Brady posted an emotional tribute to his ex-wife Gisele Bundchen and his own mother, Galynn, on Mother’s Day.
Brady and Brazilian supermodel Gisele divorced last October after 13 years together. They share two children, daughter Vivienne and son Benjamin.
His post also features Bridgette Moynahan, Brady’s ex before meeting Gisele. They had a son together, Jack.
Brady, 45, wrote, “Happy Mother’s Day to all these wonderful women who have given our family so much throughout their lives.
“Thank you all for your love, compassion and kindness, and for setting such a great example for all of our little ones.

“We are all so thankful for your support and helping us all achieve our dreams. I wish all mothers in the world a special day with the people who love them most.’
Brady’s divorce from Bundchen came amid widespread reports that she was unhappy with him not retiring from the NFL for another season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
But in an interview with Vanity Fair in March, she strongly distanced herself from those suggestions.
“Listen, I always cheered for him and I would go on forever,” she said. “If there’s one person I want to be the happiest in the world, it’s him, believe me.
“I want him to perform and win. I want all his dreams to come true. That’s what I really want, from the bottom of my heart.
‘Sometimes you grow together; sometimes you grow apart. “When I was 26 years old and he was 29 years old, we met, we wanted a family, we wanted things together.
“As time goes by, we realize that we just wanted different things, and now we have to make a choice. That doesn’t mean you don’t like the person. It just means that to be authentic and really live the life you want to live, you have to have someone who can meet you in the middle, right? It’s a dance. It’s a balance.’
When Brady announced his retirement in February, Bundchen responded to his Instagram post with, “Wishing you nothing but wonderful things in this new chapter of your life.”
