Earlier this week, Brady spoke about Thanksgiving and how much the holiday meant to him as a father.
‘I think myself as a parent and being grateful during Thanksgiving, it’s always time for family,’ he said on his Let’s Go! podcast.
‘When you think about this holiday and the commitment that parents make and that my parents made to me and my career is unbelievable.’
Acknowledging his whole family’s role in his 23-season career, Brady said he’s ‘looking forward to finishing strong here after Thanksgiving.’
‘And obviously with a lot of gratitude for the people that have made such a huge impact in my life and supported me throughout this amazing career,’ he continued. ‘I just want to be that for my kids. You know, I just wanna be the best dad I could be.’
Brady and supermodel Gisele Bundchen divorced in October following 13 years of marriage
Brady and Bundchen confirmed their divorce in Instagram statements in October. She said her priority had ‘always been’ the children, but said the pair had ‘grown apart’. In his statement, Brady said the decision was ‘painful and difficult’
When discussing his Thanksgiving plans, Brady said he’s ‘had a lot of humble pie this year’ and ‘might have to indulge in a little pumpkin pie and whipped cream. I’m going to enjoy it. It’s going to be a good Thanksgiving.’
However, Brady will be celebrating Thanksgiving with one less member of the family this year, after his split from Bundchen.
The NFL superstar and Brazilian supermodel confirmed their split on October 28 following weeks of speculation.
Brady edited Bundchen out of his Twitter header as he removed a beach picture of the former couple and their children.
The Bucs are 5-5 this season following a bye week and early season struggles while Sunday’s opponents are 3-7.
