Tom Brady won’t be spending Christmas Eve with his family but instead, he’ll be celebrating the special day in an Arizona hotel as his team prepares for a Christmas Day football game against the Arizona Cardinals.
The football star shared during the December 19 episode of SiriusXM podcast Let’s Go With Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald, and Jim Gray, “It’ll be a new experience that I’ve never had before that I’m gonna learn how to deal with. And I think that’s what life’s about…I’m gonna learn how to deal with Christmas Eve in a hotel, and I’m gonna have to learn how to deal with Christmas and Christmas night and still go out there and be a professional, and then look forward to celebrating Christmas with my kids the day after.”
Tom and his ex-wife Gisele Bündchen have two kids together namely Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9. He also has a 15-year-old son with ex Bridget Moynahan.
The quarterback is aware that NFL season includes playing on holidays and he’s aware of the obstacles he has to face in line with work. He said in the podcast, “I talked to a businessman. He was like, ‘God, all your injuries over the years.’ I said, ‘Yeah, football’s a tough sport. There’s a lot of injuries to deal with.’ And he goes, ‘Look, I’ve been a businessman all these years so there’s a lot of s–t I deal with too. I deal with anxiety. I deal with stress. I deal with all that. I deal with high blood pressure.’ And I said, you’re right.”
He also added that he “may deal with broken fingers and broken ribs and torn ligaments… other people are dealing with s–t too. And that’s good perspective to have.”
On the other hand, Gisele has been treating their two children to a special holiday. She shared on Instagram about their trip to Brazil and how she was “recharging with my little ones in the country of my [heart emoji].”
Their tropical vacay came just two months after the pair confirmed their split after being married for 13 years. They’ve separated amicably and “wish only the best for each other as we pursue whatever new chapters in our lives that are yet to be written.”
