Tom Brady revealed Wednesday morning that he is retiring from the NFL “for good.” As he announces his retirement from the NFL, Tom Brady reflects on the special family moments. The 45-year-old Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback announced his second retirement from the game.
Along with the announcement, he posted a series of images throughout his career, including a few precious family memories, on his Instagram Story.
Brady uploaded a sweet photo of ex-wife Gisele Bündchen walking with their two children, Vivian Lake, 10, and Benjamin Rein, 13, as well as Brady’s son John “Jack” Edward, 15, whom he shares with his ex, Bridget Moynahan.
The picture shows the quartet walking into Raymond James Stadium with their arms around each other at the 2021 Super Bowl, which the Buccaneers won over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Brady announced his retirement “for good” in an emotional video uploaded Wednesday morning, referring to his decision to resign and then unretire over the course of 40 days last year. Brady famously declared his first retirement at the beginning of 2022, only to change his decision two months later.

Months after his return, rumors of a split between him and Bündchen arose. After 13 years of marriage, the couple divorced in October. Brady previously stated on a Sirius XM podcast that he is “really focused” on his children following his divorce from the supermodel.
“Obviously, the good news is it’s a very amicable situation and I’m really focused on two things, taking care of my family and certainly my children,” he shared.
“We all have our unique challenges in life. We’re all humans. We do the best we could do,” Brady continued. “I have incredible parents that have always taught me the right way to do things. I want to be a great father to my children and always try to do things the right way as well.”
Whether the announcement sustains or not, Brady has had a great trip down memory lane. It won’t be an exaggeration to say that his children are the most vital part of his life and the source of motivation.
What do you think about Brady’s decision to retire? Is the star really putting an end to his career or he is gonna bounce back just like he did before?
