With a supermodel mom like Gisele Bündchen, it’s no surprise little Vivian Lake has her own strong sense of style.

That means the 2½-year-old doesn’t listen to dad Tom Brady‘s fashion advice when she picks out what she wants to wear each day.

“My favorite color on her is yellow, and she always wants pink,” Brady, 38, told PEOPLE of his “little girl” Tuesday night at the launch event for TAG Heuer’s Carrera – Heuer 01 watch in New York City. (The New England Patriots quarterback is the Swiss company’s newest brand ambassador.)

“I say, ‘What about the yellow?’ and she’s like, ‘No, Dad, I want the pink,’ ” he says, smiling. “So she’s the girliest of all girls. It’s amazing how she’s got me wrapped around her little finger.”

Brady also raves about the rest of his Boston-based brood: wife Bündchen, 35, and sons Benjamin, 5½, and Jack, 8.

“I’ve been fortunate to be very blessed with so many friends and family that have supported me, so many teammates over the years that have given me so much support,” the football star explains.

“When I win, I win for them. When I play, I play for them. I represent them, and that’s why I still do it and I still love doing it today.”
