Gisele Consoled Her Children By Telling Them ‘Sometimes You Have To Let Other People Win’

Tom Brady’s wife Gisele Bündchen graciously congratulated the Philadelphia Eagles on Instagram Monday morning following the New England Patriots’ 41-33 defeat in Sunday night’s thrilling Super Bowl. “Congratulations Eagles for winning the Super bowl, what a game that was!” she wrote, adding that she was “incredibly proud” of the Patriots for giving their best.

Bündchen and Brady’s three children however, five-year-old Vivian, eight-year-old Benjamin, and 10-year-old John, from Brady’s previous relationship, were understandably not as happy for the Eagles, and were apparently seen crying after the game. The model was overheard consoling her children however, and decided to turn it into a teachable moment that most Eagles fans would find more than a bit patronizing. “They haven’t won in a million years,” she told them.

At one point, 5-year-old daughter Vivian blurted out, “The Eagles won the Super Bowl.’’ Replied Bündchen, “Just this time. Daddy won five times. They never won before. “Their whole life, they never won a Super Bowl. You have to let someone else win sometimes.’’

At one point, Bündchen crouched down and wiped tears from the eyes of Vivian and 8-year-old son Benjamin. Brady’s third child, 10-year-old John, stood stoically on the other side of Gisele. “Sometimes you have to let other people win,’’ she said. “…We have to share. Sharing is caring.’’

While it’s true that Daddy may have won the Super Bowl five times in the past, as it was pointed out over the weekend, Daddy is also 40-years-old, which is like “four years past life expectancy.” Just putting that out there.
