Gisele Bündchen And Bridget Moynahan Have Surprising Reactions To Tom Brady's Decision

Fans were crushed when Tom Brady announced his retirement in early February. Then, we were thrilled to learn the star player was reversing his decision to leave the sport less than two months later. The dad of three took to Instagram to share that he would be returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next season. "These past two months I have realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands. That time will come. But it's not now," Brady wrote in part in the shocking post.


He went on to write, "I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family. Without them, none of this is possible." Brady included two photos — one of the playing field, and one of his wife, Gisele Bündchen, arm-in-arm with the quarterback's three kids, John, Benjamin and Vivian. Brady finished the post by declaring, "I'm coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. We have unfinished business. LFG."

Of course, fans were pumped to see the news, with one person tweeting in response, "What is NFL without Tom Brady?" But Bündchen's reaction may surprise you, as will that of Brady's ex and John's mom, Bridget Moynahan.

As E! Online reports, both Bündchen and Moynahan are excited to see Brady dedicating himself to the team again. For her part, the supermodel commented on her husband's Instagram post, "Here we go again! Let's go lovvvey! Let's go Bucs!"
