Gisele Bündchen Shares Sweet Photo of Tom Brady and Vivian After Deflategate Victory: ‘My Heart Melts’

09/05/2015 at 10:55 AM ET

Tom Brady has a lot to celebrate – the start of the NFL season, his beautiful family, and now, the overturning of his four-game “Deflategate” suspension.

The New England Patriots quarterback relaxed after the headline-making decision, spending some time in the backyard with youngest child, Vivian Lake, 2½.

In a photo shared by his wife, Gisele Bündchen, the couple’s daughter kicks around a soccer ball with Brady.

Wearing a yellow bikini, Vivian faced off against the four-time Super Bowl champion in front of a soccer goal.

“And my heart melts …#biggestlove #family,” wrote Bündchen.

The couple, who also share son Benjamin Rein, 5½, relished Brady’s Thursday victory at Gillette Stadium’s TB12 Sports Therapy Center in Foxboro, Massachusetts, on Friday. The supermodel, 35, was photographed leaving the center to visit Brady, 38, who was back to practicing alongside his teammates.

Tom and Gisele’s Marriage Under Fire as Close Source Defends Them: ‘They’re Living Life and Doing Great’

Despite reports that the NFL scandal had strained the famous pair’s marriage, a source close to Bündchen told PEOPLE recently that they are “living their life, and they’re doing great.”

After his Deflategate victory, Brady posted a message to fans on Facebook, saying that he was “sorry our league had to endure this.”

“I don’t think it has been good for our sport — to a large degree, we have all lost,” he wrote.

Just goes to show how totally bogus and inflammatory these pop culture sites stories are. They are more often than not based on “sources close to ” that actually don’t exist. I have learned it is best to read these articles strictly for their entertainment value and not for truth of actual fact.

Marias…she has on a little bikini…you can see the top ties at her back. If this photo was taken recently, It has been very hot in Boston and perhaps, the child was in and out of the pool as well. The photo was taken in the yard of their Brookline home.

Oh my gosh, this family has been through so much pain.

First, she’s seen wearing a burqa as she tries to be discreet with her plastic surgery.

Then…oh my gosh….poor Tom is suspended for playing with his balls.

Where is the justice? My heart bleeds for them. They really are true survivors.

He has two kids? Didn’t know that.

And of course Giselle needs everyone to know that her life is completely perfect and nothing is wrong in her house because she lives a fairy tale. Even if there were problems in the Brady home, she would never get a divorce because that would mean her life wasn’t a utopia and she cannot have that. Remember, this is the same woman who didn’t have labour pains, she and her husband have never had a fight and her life is perfect.

It was a short lived victory, he was not found not guilty of cheating. The have appealed and most likely will win.

Don’t little children wear bathing suits on hot summer days, particularly if running around in their own private yard playing ball in the heat? Marisa, what is wrong with you? Your criticism is way off base and just plain bizarre.

LOL… reading some of these comments . . does anybody understand that when they make negative comments about something as innocent as this they are really just revealing their own insanity? It’s a great photo. A mom is having a great day!! She tries to share it and she’s doing what??? People are crazy. I’m amazed she even tries to communicate with anyone.
