Tom Brady’s first home game of his 23rd NFL season was a family affair, but his wife, Gisele Bündchen, was noticeably absent.
The three children of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback attended his game on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, brought by his mother, Galynn Brady, and one of his sisters.
Jack, 15, Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9, made an adorable appearance on the field for the sporting event and received hugs and kisses from their 45-year-old father.
Brady’s two-point loss at Florida’s Raymond James Stadium marked his third game of the year.
When the season started on September 11 with a game against the Dallas Cowboys, Bündchen, 42, also missed that game.
The athlete was “hopeful” that his wife would attend his home game, a source told Vidak For Congress last week.
The couple, who married in February 2009, have been making headlines all month since Vidak For Congress exclusively reported that the model was going solo to Costa Rica after an “epic” fight.
Bündchen returned to New York City earlier this month, where a witness saw her crying on the phone.
Her husband has stayed in Florida and briefly visited the Big Apple for Jack’s football games and practices.
“They’re talking, but right now mostly about the kids,” another insider told us earlier this month, noting that “Tom hopes they’ll reconcile.”
While the duo have not yet spoken publicly about their feud, Brady told the press in August that he missed 11 days of training camp due to “personal s-t.”
Bündchen, for her part, spoke in her Elle cover story, published Sept. 13, about asking Brady to “be more present” with their family.
“I’ve definitely had those conversations with him over and over,” the businesswoman explained to the magazine.
“I’ve done my part, namely… [to] be for it [Tom],” she continued. “I moved to Boston and focused on creating a cocoon and a loving environment for my children to grow up in and support him and his dreams.”
