Tom Brady Reveals His Son Has a Football Idol … That Isn't Tom Brady

Tom Brady — the twice-retired quarterback who many consider to be the GOAT of the NFL — has a teen who just might want to follow in his footsteps. Well, kind of. Benjamin, 13 — who Brady shares with ex-wife Gisele Bündchen along with their daughter Vivian, 10 — is starting to play football.

On an episode of Let’s Go! With Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray, said that while this may be “Benny’s” first year playing, he already has high aspirations and an NFL icon he wants to live up to.

And no, it’s not his dad.

“I was like, ‘What do you wanna play?’ And he was like, ‘Tight end. I wanna be like Gronk!’” Brady said, talking about his former teammate Rob Gronkowski. “So I actually texted Gronk and I’m like, ‘Yo, my boy wants to be like you!’ And he loved it.”

Oof! Sorry Ben doesn’t want to be a QB like you, Brady, but we don’t blame him for looking up to Gronk. He is pretty legendary.

Brady has a second son — John “Jack” Moynahan — who he shares with ex Bridget Moynahan. Jack turned 16 earlier this month, and people were fawning over Brady’s sweet birthday tribute.
