For the 9th time, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are heading to the Super Bowl. And, his wife, Gisele Bundchen, was thrilled to share every detail about the game on Twitter and Instagram. Last night, football fans gathered around their TV, computer, and smartphone screens to watch the Patriots beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship game. The final score was 36-17 with Brady completing 32 of 42 passes for 384 yards. The Super Bowl-bound quarterback had a very rough year where both he and his wife were embroiled in scandals.
The high-profile athlete and Donald Trump supporter was absent at the begining of the season. Bundchen’s husband was suspended for four games for his involvement in the “Deflategate” scandal. In a press conference, Brady said the suspension motivated him to fight harder to earn his fifth Super Bowl ring and to raise another Lombardi Trophy.
He explained: “This is my motivation right here, all these fellows right here in front of me. That’s why we’re here.” He added: “We’ll see if we can write the perfect ending in a couple of weeks. It’s going to take a big effort. We’re playing a great team, but it’s going to be a hell of a game.”
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen live-tweeted the game. She wrote: “Oh, that’s the way, uh-huh uh-huh I like it!!” She also shared a photo of her son watching the game and captioned it: “Benny stopping the Steelers!!!” She continued: “Go Paaaaaaaaats!!!! Let’s do it!!!!” In her last tweet she said: “Congratulations my love! tombrady #gopats.”
After the game, Brady took to his Instagram account where he shared a sweet picture of himself next to his wife. The caption read: “tombradyTHAT’S SOME HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE! #letsgooooooo.”
Brady and the Patriots will take on the Atlanta Falcons at Super Bowl LI in Houston, Texas on Feb. 5.
