Tom Brady, the 45-year-old veteran quarterback, is about to experience his first Christmas game this year. What’s more, this will be his first Christmas without his children following his divorce from Gisele Bündchen.
With Christmas falling on a Sunday this year, the NFL has spaced out its games with most games being played on Christmas Eve, however, the Bucs will still be playing on the 25th, as they play against the Arizona Cardinals.
“It’ll be a new experience that I’ve never had before that I’m going to have to learn how to deal with,” he shared during Monday’s episode of his SiriusXM podcast Let’s Go! with Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray. “I think that’s what life’s about.”
“So you just asked a question about, ‘What have you learned from this football season?’ I’m going to learn how to deal with Christmas. Even in a hotel,” Brady continued.
“I’m going to have to learn how to deal with Christmas and Christmas night and still go out there and be a professional and then look forward to celebrating Christmas with my kids the day after.”
Over the weekend, the ex-couples 10-year-old daughter Vivian Lake and their 13-year-old son Benjamin Rein were seen in photos with Bündchen that she posted on her Instagram account saying, “Recharging with my little ones in the country of my ❤️,” the model captioned from Brazil.
In the photos, Bündchen and her two kids seemed to be enjoying time at the beach and hanging by the pool, as well as enjoying each other’s company.

Brady on the other hand has been dealing with some blows and will have to adjust to these new changes on top of everything else. Not only does he have to prepare for his first-ever game on Christmas Day, but he’s also recovering from a harsh loss to the Cincinnati Bengals last week.
