Gisele Bündchen, Tom Brady’s wife, turned the New England Patriots’ 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday in Super Bowl LII into a teaching moment for their children — two of whom were crying after the game.
“They haven’t won in a million years,’’ Bündchen said of the Eagles, and it probably felt that way for the Eagles fans before their team won their first Super Bowl title and first NFL championship since 1960.
But Brady’s two sons and daughter were not easily consoled.
At one point, 5-year-old daughter Vivian blurted out, “The Eagles won the Super Bowl.’’
Replied Bündchen, “Just this time. Daddy won five times. They never won before.
“Their whole life, they never won a Super Bowl. You have to let someone else win sometimes.’’
At one point, Bündchen crouched down and wiped tears from the eyes of Vivian and 8-year-old son Benjamin. Brady’s third child, 10-year-old John, stood stoically on the other side of Gisele.
“Sometimes you have to let other people win,’’ she said. “…We have to share. Sharing is caring.’’
