Tom Brady is reflecting on a sweet family moment as he announces his retirement from the NFL.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, 45, announced his second retirement from the sport on Wednesday morning. Along with the news, he shared a series of photos from throughout his career on his Instagram Story, including a few special family memories.

Brady shared a cute photo of ex-wife Gisele Bündchen walking with their two kids, daughter Vivian Lake, 10, and son Benjamin Rein, 13, as well as son John “Jack” Edward, 15, whom Brady shares with ex Bridget Moynahan.

In an emotional video posted Wednesday morning, Brady said that he was retiring “for good” this time, in reference to his decision to retire and then unretire over the course of 40 days last year.

Brady famously announced his first retirement at the start of 2022, before reversing the decision about two months later.

Months after his return, speculation of a rift between him and Bündchen materialized. In October, the two finalized their divorce after 13 years of marriage.

Opening up about his split from Bündchen on a previous episode of his Sirius XM podcast, Brady said that he is “really focused” on his children after he and the supermodel finalized their divorce.

“Obviously, the good news is it’s a very amicable situation and I’m really focused on two things, taking care of my family and certainly my children,” he shared.

“We all have our unique challenges in life. We’re all humans. We do the best we could do,” Brady continued. “I have incredible parents that have always taught me the right way to do things. I want to be a great father to my children and always try to do things the right way as well.”
