“Congratulations Eagles for winning the Super bowl, what a game that was!” wrote Bündchen on Instagram.
She continued, “Congratulations Patriots for giving your best and to my love, we are incredibly proud of you because we are able to see ever day all the commitment, sacrifice and hard work that you have devoted to become the best in what you do. We love you!”
In the accompanying photo, Brady appeared emotional as he hugged his wife and one of their children (the couple shares Benjamin Rein, 8, and daughter Vivian Lake, 5, and Brady is also dad to John “Jack” Edward Thomas, 10, from a previous relationship).
Much of Brady’s family was in Minneapolis, Minnesota, for the quarterback’s big game. On Saturday night, he shared a group photo taken on the field, writing, “Family and Football.”
Despite Sunday’s loss, Brady still had something to celebrate: he was named MVP for the third time in his NFL career.
Brady is also now the oldest player to ever win the title.
