Talk about a doting dad!
Four-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady says spending as much time with his model wife, Gisele Bündchen, and their children Benjamin, 6, and Vivian Lake, 3, as he can is his top priority right now.
“[The kids] always get a book before bed, sometimes two if they’re nice to me!” Brady, 38, tells PEOPLE at an event for the Beautyrest Black luxury mattress at the St. Regis hotel in New York City. “It’s such precious time — you don’t want to rush those things.”
The New England Patriots quarterback says Bündchen, his wife of nine years, will lie down with their kids “for hours” before bedtime — reading them stories and snuggling with them.But when it’s his turn to tuck the kiddos in, Brady prefers to read to them from a seated position. “I like to hold them and read in a chair by the bed, then ultimately put them into bed,” he explains.
