Tom Brady, the popular former NFL star, was the victim of a recent Instagram hijacking. On Feb. 27, Brady’s 10-year-old daughter, Vivian, briefly took advantage of having access to her dad’s phone and posted two funny pictures of their family’s new kitten on his Instagram story.
The first picture featured the tiny pet dipping its head into a glass of water with the caption, “Poke is my name – Drinking out of Vivi’s water is my game.” The second picture showed the kitten sleeping with its paws tucked under its stomach with the caption, “Nap time!!! (Btw this is Vivi 🙂 on Dads phone).”
Vivian made sure to reveal that she was the one behind the post with her second caption. Vivian and her brother Ben are the two children Brady shares with his ex-wife Gisele Bündchen, and the 45-year-old is also a father to 15-year-old John with ex Bridget Moynahan.
The hijacking of Brady’s Instagram account may have been prompted by the addition of two kittens to the Brady family. On Feb. 15, Brady posted a picture to his Instagram story of two kittens playing together. He suggested that Vivian was the one who encouraged him to adopt them, writing, “Vivi wins again.”
Brady also shared that the cats came from The Humane Society of Tampa Bay, and he tagged Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Logan Ryan and his wife Ashley Bragg Ryan, writing, “This is what my mornings are like now.”
Since his retirement from the NFL earlier this month, Brady has been more active on social media, often gushing about his children. For Valentine’s Day, he shared a sweet photo with his three children and called them “the sweetest” and his “true love.”
It seems as though the 45-year-old former quarterback gained back the access to his Instagram account and phone from his daughter. Brady’s most recent Instagram story teased an announcement involving his new clothing brand, Brady.
