Tom Brady has achieved unmatched success becoming one of the most feted quarterbacks after the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.
But, Brady, 39, has no plans to retire anytime soon, even if his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen, has requested him to hang up his helmet.
“If it was up to my wife, she would have me retire today,” Brady says during an interview with SiriusXM this week.
He reveals she told him more than three times after his big win on Sunday, but it’s not going to happen.“I said, ‘Too bad, babe, I’m having too much fun right now,” Brady admits. While he is getting older, he doesn’t want this ride to end. “You know, I feel like I can still do it. If you love what you do and you’re capable of doing it, then I might be so bored if I wasn’t going out there knowing that I could still do it. So I’m going to work hard to be ready to go, and I still plan on playing for a long time,” he says.
“In some ways, being more experienced and having your family life settled does allow you to focus a little bit more, too, because there’s less B.S. in your life,” Brady adds. “You have your family and you can go to work and focus on your job. And you expect your teammates to do the same.”
After the Patriots won the Super Bowl on Sunday, Brady had an emotional celebration with his family after the game. The quarterback celebrated in tears with Bundchen, their two children, Benjamin, 7 and Vivian, 4, and Brady’s mother, Galynn.
