The moment Tom Brady walks off the football field and sees his daughter, he instantly becomes a softie.

“That little girl owns my day — owns my life,” Brady told Entertainment Tonight of 3½-year-old Vivian Lake.

“[I] cannot say no to anything,” he said of his daughter with wife Gisele Bündchen. “Whatever she tells her dad to do, that’s what I do. That’s just the way it goes.”

Brady — who’s also dad to sons Benjamin, 6½, and Jack, 9 — says he’d love to see them all play sports one day.

“If they do, I think it’s great because I can really help them out, but if they don’t, that’s up to them,” he said.

Bündchen — whom he says helps him dress for the red carpet — also keeps him lean.

“I’ve never had a strawberry in my life. Can you imagine that?” said Brady, who can’t eat it because of his diet. “It’s just not a thing I like.”

Beautiful separately but together! Pretentious, obnoxious couple Bostonian folks can’t stand. Whether you eat grass or once in a while allow yourself a strawberry it’s ok….we all go to the same place anyways when we die. Live a little.

???? If he’s never had a strawberry, how does he know he doesn’t like them? Doesn’t make sense.

I think Tom Brady has totally miserable eyes. I’m glad he has a good relationship with his kids.

You can’t eat a piece of fruit because of your diet? How the f*%# does that make sense? Since when is fruit bad for you? Jeez how annoying!

My heart goes out to Brady’s other son, Jack, who is absent from these photos. Another little boy having to grow up with only his mother because his father “chose” to leave them and start a new family. My God, how sad is that.

A few things, he’s never had a strawberry like I’ve never had a brusselsprout or my son has never tasted a piece of lobster, just something you know you won’t like. He’s never said it was due to his diet, just said he’s never had one in his life. Second, he didn’t leave his first kid, she got pregnant after they broke up. They have a great relationship, and Jack is super close with Gisele too. He loves all his children, but Jacks mom lives in NYC and loves him just as much and wants to see him too. Therefore she spends most of the time with him. They all have a great relationship. Regarding him being a wuss lmao, let me see you take a hit like he does on the field, get up clap and say “nice hit bro” when he knows he’s a target. Tom Brady is a nice guy and you all hate him for it. You pick him apart over menial things, look at you. How are your lives?

@Jess Tom is very much a part o Jack’s life. Tom and Giselle share custody of him with Bridgett. He’s in pics, but I think Bridgett likes to keep him out of the public eye, and Tom respects that.

For all you Brady haters: Tom is very much a part of Jack’s life! Last weekend he was with Tom in Michigan when Tom was honored by his alma mater. Jack spends a lot of time in Boston, he was often spotted at the Pats games and in the locker room afterwards. He also goes on vacation with them. Don’t forget he’s in school now so can’t be with Tom & Gisele as much as he used to be.
