Brady Jokes About His Blackpink Obsession in Retirement

After an illustrious career in the NFL, Tom Brady has hung up his cleats and transitioned into his latest role: doting dad. The legendary quarterback recently shared a glimpse of his off-field escapades when he took his daughter, Vivian, to see the global K-pop sensation, Blackpink, in concert.

Brady and Vivian didn't merely attend as regular concert-goers. The two were afforded the enviable opportunity of mingling backstage with the celebrated quartet of Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo, and Rose. This rare occasion was beautifully commemorated with a photo that captures Vivian, along with a friend, visibly thrilled.

Brady, meanwhile, looked every bit the supportive dad, standing back and letting the youngsters shine.

Brady's Playful Retirement Post

The photo was a delightful addition to Brady's Instagram story. The man, who led both the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers to numerous victories, added a cheeky caption to the image.

"New gig in retirement," he wrote, punctuating the sentiment with a laughter emoji. However, it wasn't just all jest and humor. Brady made it a point to acknowledge Blackpink's graciousness, expressing heartfelt thanks for their "hospitality and kindness" throughout their brief interaction.

As expected, the photograph's circulation didn't go unnoticed. Brady's loyalists flooded the image with reactions, with many lovingly poking fun at the seven-time Super Bowl champion. Several fans admired the endearing fatherly aura he projected during the concert.

But that wasn't the only image from the event making the rounds on social media. Another snapshot featured Brady donning attire from his personal brand, namely a cap and shirt. True to form, the former quarterback took the wave of attention in stride, addressing the image with his typical mix of candor and humor.

Commenting on the viral photo, Brady remarked, "This is the most 'dad takes his daughter and her friends to a concert' picture ever taken." This statement, like so much of what he does, proved once again that Tom Brady excels not just on the gridiron but in the engaging game of life beyond it.
