Gisele Bündchen Won’t Tell Tom Brady When He Should Retire

"It’s his decision, and he knows it," she told The Wall Street Journal.

When soon-to-be-41-year-old Tom Brady does retire from the National Football League, it won’t be because his wife told him to.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Gisele Bündchen said that while she does have her concerns about the long-term health effects of playing in the NFL, she won’t be the one to ask Brady to hang up his spikes.

“It’s not my decision to make,” she told the WSJ. “It’s his decision, and he knows it. It wouldn’t be fair any other way.”

According to Bündchen, keeping Brady happy means keeping him on the field – hopefully winning -as long as humanly possible.

“I want him to be happy. Believe me, I’ve been with him when he’s losing. Try to be with him after you have lost [Super Bowls],” she said. “As long as he’s happy, he’s going to be a better father, he’s going to be a better husband, and I just want him to be happy.”

That should make Patriots fans in New England and beyond happy.
