He has found himself at the centre of controversy over the past number of months, and again this week as his emails were shared with the world, but one very positive and touching revelation was made from the incident.
As American football star Tom Brady finds himself under the spotlight as officials investigate claims that balls were illegally deflated before major games, the details of his co-parenting with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan have come to light.
Tom – who is dad to kids Benjamin and Vivian with wife Gisele Bundchen, and son John ‘Jack’ with Moynahan – is seen gushing over his eldest son’s achievements at school in one of the email interactions.
An email from Blue Bloods star Moynahan reads: “Isn’t it cool that Jack got a reading award?! He gets to wear a reading star pin now too. So proud.”
The New England Patriots star responded: “He is such a smart boy. And he is such a hard worker. I’m so proud of him.”
While not all of the attention towards Brady is positive right now, it is always lovely to see kids receiving this kind of support, and a co-parenting plan working so well.
