Tom Brady, the retired NFL superstar, extended heartfelt tributes to the influential mothers in his life this Mother’s Day, notably including his ex-wife Gisele Bündchen and his own mother. The touching acknowledgments come in the wake of playful jabs about his marriage during his recent Netflix roast.

On social media, Brady expressed his gratitude towards these "kind, caring, compassionate, and POWERFUL moms," sharing his belief that their nurturing has been pivotal to his life’s successes. Bündchen, separated from Brady, also celebrated the day with a poignant tribute to her late mother, Vânia Nonnenmacher, who passed away earlier this year.

In an emotional Instagram post, the supermodel reflected on the profound impact her mother had, describing her as an "amazing human being" who perpetually helped those around her and served as a stellar role model. She elaborated on the perpetual bond of motherhood, emphasizing its timeless nature and the unwavering desire to protect one's children, regardless of their age.

Accompanying Brady’s post were several family photographs featuring his mother with her grandchildren, candid shots with his sisters, and moments of Bündchen and Brady's other ex, Bridget Moynahan, with their children.

Brady shares his eldest son, Jack, with Moynahan, and two other children, Vivian and Benjamin, with Bündchen.

In a parallel heartfelt note, Bündchen reminisced about her mother's teachings and the sorrow of no longer being able to embrace her.

However, she finds solace in knowing her mother’s spirit continues to guide their family. “You were an angel on earth, always helping everyone around you,” Bündchen wrote, cherishing the memories and values imparted by her mother.

Adding a personal touch to her Mother’s Day message, Bündchen shared her experiences as a mother, underscoring the joys and challenges of parenting preteens and teens. During a candid conversation with Jimmy Fallon earlier this year, she stressed the importance of maintaining open lines of communication with growing children, acknowledging their constant evolution.

As the summer approaches, Bündchen continues to embrace her role as a stepmother, celebrating significant milestones like Jack’s 16th birthday, which she marked with a heartfelt post reflecting on his growth and her gratefulness for his presence in her life.

This Mother's Day, amidst reflections and celebrations, both Brady and Bündchen highlighted the enduring influence of maternal figures in their lives, illustrating the deep bonds and lasting legacies that mothers forge with their children.
