In a heartfelt nod to the significant women in his life, Tom Brady, the renowned former NFL luminary, took a moment this Friday to extend his appreciation through his Instagram Stories in celebration of International Women's Day.

Brady's tribute highlighted the profound influence of his 11-year-old daughter, Vivian, his mother, Galynn Patricia Brady, and his trio of sisters, underscoring the pivotal roles they play in his life. Initiating his series of posts, Brady shared an endearing photograph with his elder sisters, Maureen, Julie, and Nancy, accompanied by a message that read, "Happy International Women’s Day," paying homage to their collective strength and inspiration.

Following this, he showcased a touching snapshot featuring Vivian and Galynn sharing a joyous moment at a sporting event. Over this image, he affectionately noted, "To the most powerful, kind, and caring women in the world," elevating the duo's significance in his universe.

Vivian, along with her 14-year-old brother Benjamin, are Brady's children with his ex-wife, the iconic supermodel Gisele Bündchen. Bündchen has also played a pivotal role in the upbringing of Brady's 16-year-old son, Jack, from his previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.

Brady's Family Focus

Brady, aged 46, and Bündchen, aged 43, concluded their 13-year marriage in October 2022, following a period marred by speculation regarding their separation, a chapter both have described as "painful and difficult." Bündchen recently shared her emotional turmoil over their split in an interview, likening it to the "death of a dream," while also touching on the challenges and nuances of co-parenting with Brady.

In affirming their commitment to co-parenting post-divorce, Brady emphasized the importance of nurturing their children with love and care. He further extended his gratitude towards Bündchen, his mother, and Moynahan on the subsequent Mother’s Day, lauding their indelible impact and the exemplary love, compassion, and kindness they have bestowed upon their family.

As both Brady and Bündchen navigate their new lives post-divorce - with Brady reportedly connecting with model Irina Shayk and Bündchen finding companionship with jiu-jitsu trainer Joaquim Valente - their stories of moving forward and fostering love continue to captivate and inspire.
