Tom Brady, the celebrated NFL icon, extended a heartfelt tribute to the significant mothers in his life this Mother's Day, including his ex-partners Bridget Moynahan and Gisele Bündchen, despite the recent controversy following a Netflix roast.

In a touching social media post, Brady shared a montage of images, which included his mom, his sisters, and the mothers of his children—Jack, Ben, and Vivian—pointing out how important each of them was in his life.

"Happy Mothers Day to these kind, caring, compassionate, and POWERFUL moms that I'm lucky to have in my life. None of this would be possible without your love," Brady expressed on Instagram, resonating gratitude and admiration for their collective influence and support.

The acknowledgment of Moynahan and Bündchen was notably significant, occurring merely a week after Brady endured a comedic grilling on Netflix, where comedians unabashedly lampooned his past relationships. The roast, which also threw jabs at Moynahan and Bündchen, sparked varied reactions from all involved.

Moynahan's Cryptic Response

Following the event, Moynahan subtly addressed the roast through a cryptic social media post: "Loyal people take s--- more personal because they never would’ve done that s--- to you," suggesting her displeasure with the personal digs made at her expense.

Meanwhile, reports from People magazine indicated that Bündchen felt "deeply disappointed" by the roast, which apparently also impacted their two children, casting a shadow over the humor intended by the event. In response to the fallout, Brady reportedly extended an apology to Bündchen for the discomfort caused by the roast's content.

Comedian Nikki Glaser, one of the performers at the roast, commented to TMZ about the necessity of her comedic approach: "I had to go there because it was a roast," yet she admitted she would offer a personal apology to Bündchen should the opportunity arise.

This Mother's Day gesture by Brady not only served as a reaffirmation of his appreciation for the maternal figures in his life but also as a subtle testament to maintaining decorum and respect amidst public scrutiny and media spectacle.
