She’s a supermodel, wife of New England quarterback Tom Brady, a huge Patriots defender and fan. And last, but not certainly least, Gisele Bundchen is a mother.
And only a mother could explain the Patriots’ loss in a humbling way to her children. But that’s exactly what Bundchen did in the aftermath of Sunday’s painful Super Bowl LII loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
“Sometimes you have to let other people win,” she told her children who were crying after the Eagles beat the Patriots 41-33, according to USA TODAY. “We have to share. Sharing is caring.”
Benjamin, 8, and Vivian, 5, were beside themselves and sobbing as 10-year-old John stood close by.
Bundchen explained to the younger children, “They (the Eagles) haven’t won in a million years. The Eagles won the Super Bowl.
“Just this time. Daddy won five times,” Bundchen said. “They never won before. Their whole life, they never won a Super Bowl. You have to let someone else win sometimes.”
Bundchen also took time to congratulate the Eagles via Instagram.
“Congratulations Eagles for winning the Super bowl, what a game that was!
After the New York Giants beat the Patriots in 2012, her reaction was far different when she went praised her husband’s efforts while at the same time questioning some of his wide receivers’ play and cussed at a Giants’ fan.
