Tom Brady is arguably the most successful quarterback in NFL history. At 43, Brady became the oldest Super Bowl MVP and the oldest quarterback selected to the Pro Bowl.  Although Brady has accomplished a lot, he thinks his and Gisele Bündchen’s wealth is the “hardest thing” about raising their children.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback said on a recent episode of Spotify’s “Drive” podcast, “We have people that clean for us. We have people that make our food. We have people that drive us to the airport if we need that. … We get off a plane and there’s people waiting there for us, and we get ushered in,” He added, “That’s my kids’ reality, which is the hard part to say, ‘Guys, this is not the way reality really is. … What can we do about that?’”

Brady, who reportedly has a net worth of $250 million, shares son Benjamin, 12, and daughter Vivian, 9, with Bündchen. He also co-parents son John “Jack,” 14, with ex Bridget Moynahan. The NFL star, 44, said he and the Brazilian supermodel, 41, try to make their kids relatable by creating “experiences that are more along the lines of what most kids go through,” 

Although, Brady admitted at the end of the day, his children will “still have experiences that a lot of kids never do have.” He also said his and Bündchen’s humble beginnings have made them understand and appreciate their privilege. He explained, “My wife grew up in rural Brazil, the farthest state south, Rio Grande do Sul, very small kind of farming town, very simple girl,”

The Brady designer admitted that he has “screwed up a lot of things,” which he called “the reality of being a parent,” but he said he hopes that his kids realize the luxuries they experience are just treats. We will have to wait and see how the Brady parenting turns out. Stay tuned to Thirsty.
