Tom Brady Says The Hardest Thing About Parenting? BEING SO FREAKING RICH!
Tom Brady doesn’t have a lot of worries in life. The dude is one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game of football. He has a beautiful wife, a healthy family and a net worth of $250 million.
But it’s that net worth that causes him the most stress when it comes to his kids. He has two kids with Gisele Bundchen, and one kid with his ex Bridget Moynahan. They range from ages 14 to 9, and he claims the hardest part about parenting is his extreme wealth.
During a recent episode of Spotify’s “Drive” podcast, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback dropped this comment:
We have people that clean for us. We have people that make our food. We have people that drive us to the airport if we need that. … We get off a plane and there’s people waiting there for us and we get ushered in. That’s my kids’ reality, which is the hard part to say, ‘Guys, this is not the way reality really is. … What can we do about that?’
Man, yeah. That’s a head scratcher. It’s not like you could have them clean the house instead, or make their own grilled cheese sandwiches. That would just be insane!
I don’t know. I fail to see how this is a big issue. You can change certain things about your life. You can be extremely wealthy and still not act like it. Obviously during the NFL season, Brady can’t waste time cleaning his home, or making dinner for the family, but I’m sure there are ways to combat this.
Brady also said that both he and Bundchen come from humble beginnings, so they understand how privileged they are right now.
My wife grew up in rural Brazil, the farthest state south, Rio Grande do Sul, very small kind of farming town, very simple girl. There are two bedrooms in their house — one for their parents and one for her and her five sisters. I grew up in, I would say, a middle-class family in California. My dad worked his ass off for our family. My mom stayed at home [and] took care of us kids.
Just send the kids off to Brazil for a couple months.
