Tom Brady shared a photo of his first Christmas with his three children after his divorce from Gisele Bundchen.
Two days after Christmas, the NFL superstar, 45, celebrated with his sons John “Jack” Edward, 15, and Benjamin, 13, as well as his daughter Vivian, 10. He has two children with the supermodel: Benjamin and Vivian, and Jack with his ex-wife Bridget Moynahan.
Brady took to Instagram Stories on Tuesday to share photos from their Christmas celebration. The first post was a drawing titled “Benny’s Self Portrait,” which featured Vivian, Benjamin, and Jack dressed as anime characters. According to People, the second post was “the real thing,” which showed his sons hugging their sister in front of the Christmas tree.
The third photo showed him hanging Christmas stockings on the wall, one for each of his three children and two for his pets, Lua and Fluffy. Vivian and Jack also wore their holiday socks. Hers read, “Just a girl who loves horses,” while Jack’s read, “Do not disturb I’m gaming,” according to the snaps obtained by Daily Mail.
Brady spent Christmas Eve in a hotel and Christmas Day on the field. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Arizona Cardinals, 19-16, at State Farms Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Vivian and Benjamin spent their first Christmas following their parents’ divorce on vacation in their mother’s native Brazil.
Bundchen, 42, documented her and her children’s activities during their Christmas vacation on Instagram, including horseback riding, feeding farm animals, biking, fishing, and picnicking with the family.
In the caption, the supermodel wrote in Portuguese:
“It’s my Rio Grande do Sul Heaven, Sun, South, Earth and Color, where everything that is planted grows and what blooms the most is love. It’s always so good to come back home. Always so good to be back home.”
Brady and Bundchen divorced on Oct. 28 after months of speculation that they were living apart during their marital crisis. According to reports, they were at odds over the seven-time Super Bowl champion’s decision to return to the NFL after announcing his retirement in February.
According to People, the former couple’s children will have “full access to both [parents] whenever they want” following their divorce.
The insider added:
“They’ve got a schedule, but neither of them would prevent their kids from seeing the other parent. That’s not who either of them are.”
Brady and Bundchen both stated that their divorce was mutually agreed upon.
The athlete previously discussed their split on his SiriusXM show “Let’s Go! with Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald, and Jim Gray,” saying he was “really focused” on his children.
“Obviously, the good news is it’s a very amicable situation and I’m really focused on two things, taking care of my family and certainly my children.”
“I have incredible parents that have always taught me the right way to do things. I want to be a great father to my children and always try to do things the right way as well.”
