Tom Brady fully understands why there is so much interest in his personal life.
On Thursday, the 45-year-old Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback was asked what he thinks about the constant interest surrounding his marriage with Gisele Bündchen.
The seven-time NFL champion told reporters, “I think it’s just part of our life. We’re in front of the cameras all day, so it’s a natural thing I’ve been dealing with for a long time,” per NBC Sports.
According to Pro Football Talk, one reporter asked Brady if the speculation about his life away from the field “gets old.”
“I’m not going to really comment on that type of stuff,” Brady replied. “I just deal with it the best way I can.”
Despite social media responding to his latest comments, fans couldn’t help but to notice his facial appearance looking so much different than in past years.
Here is how fans reacted:
As the quarterback begins his 23rd season in the league, he and his wife seem to be falling apart at the seams over his decision to unretire and play another year.
During a recent podcast appearance, Brady said he returned to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because he felt the team could win another Super Bowl under his leadership. Brady said he “felt like I had a little left” when deciding to return to the NFL less than two months into his retirement.
“I want to give it a shot — and I owed it to my teammates and our great coaches and our whole organization,” 45-year-old Brady said on the show. “We built something pretty special here in Tampa the last few years. We were pretty close [to a Super Bowl run] last year, at the end of last year. We lost to the Super Bowl champ. They made a few more plays than we did in that game.”
In the meantime, it looks like he may be facing an ultimatum once this season is over.
