Patriots fans see Pats quarterback Tom Brady as the second coming, but his wife Giselle Bündchen, many do not have any love for the Victoria’s Secret model.
The Superbowl being just a few short weeks away, Pat’s fans should be thankful the 37-year-old mother of two and wife of Tom Brady didn’t get her way. It is no secret that for years Bündchen has been trying to slow her 5-time Superbowl Champion of a husband down for fear of the wear and tear he continues to put on his body.
In a previous interview with CBS This Morning, Giselle was very vocal about the worries she had about the constant pummeling her husband endures due to the nature of his work in a contact sport.
“I don’t really think it’s a healthy thing for your body to go through like, through that kind of aggression like, all the time-that cannot be healthy for you, right?”
Until now, no one knew just what lengths Giselle is willing to go to get her husband to put down the pigskin. In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, friend, and former teammate of Brady, Jay Feely made a shocking admission of a conversation he had with Bündchen.
Feely said Bündchen was “trying to get me to convince [Tom] to stop playing.” The retired kicker and friend of Brady said Brady’s wife “was dead serious.”
Although she has been very vocal to her husband over the years, about how she wants him to quit, it doesn’t seem like his will can budge. In an interview with Sirius XM radio last year, Brady out his foot down with his wife.
“If it was up to my wife, she would have me retire today.She told me that last night three times.”And I said, ‘Too bad, babe, I’m having too much fun right now.’ You know, I feel like I can still do it.”
Brady has a point, and a right to keep pursuing his love of the sport but his wife does have a point. Playing football for over two decades can take a toll on the body that can be irreversible. Hopefully, Brady will leave the sport unscathed on his own terms, but as his career continues, Giselle will most likely continue to press him to leave the game.
