Gisele Bundchen says Tom Brady is ‘very focused’ on football at home

Patriots fans need not worry about the focus of Tom Brady at home, so says his supermodel wife.

Gisele Bundchen spoke recently in New York about the atmosphere in their Boston household as he prepares to make another run at the Super Bowl.

Bundchen says her husband knows how to zero in on the playoffs.

“He’s very focused,” the 33-year-old Bundchen said of her 36-year-old quarterback husband. “We are both very supportive of one another in what we do. … Of course nobody likes to lose. Those aren’t the best days.”

This, of course, was most evident in the moments after Super Bowl XLVI when Wes Welker dropped a key pass in the fourth quarter that would’ve kept a drive going and likely ended any chances of a last-minute touchdown that won the game for the Giants. Bundchen was very defensive of her husband and most famously said, “You [need] to catch the ball when you’€™re supposed to catch the ball. My husband cannot [expletive] throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’€™t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”

Ironic that her husband will be going up against the very player this weekend who caused her so much grief in Indianapolis.

“He knows he does his best. He works extremely hard,” Bundchen said.

The Brazilian model says the couple winds down differently at night.

“At night if my husband is watching TV and watching football, I have my little book and I put something in my ears so I don’t hear it and I put my light [on] and have my book and I’m like, ‘Ohhh.’ He’s feeding his soul and that’s important to him to watch football. I only want to watch if I’m watching him,” she joked in an excerpt from The Associated Press.

Bundchen reiterated that family is the top priority above all. Brady has a 6-year-old son, John, whose mother is actress Bridget Moynahan. Bundchen and Brady have a 4-year-old son, Ben, and a 1-year-old daughter, Vivian.

“He’s very loving and it’s a wonderful thing,” Bundchen said. “In our house we are very affectionate. I think it’s very important for the boys to know that it’s OK to hug and to kiss and you’re not less than a man.”
