Tom Brady on Son Not Liking Sports: He 'Just Likes Different Things'

Thursday August 8, 2019

In a new profile piece for Men's Health, NFL superstar Tom Brady opened up about his family life, specifically about how one of his sons isn't into playing sports. The New England Patriots quarterback explained that he had to come to terms with his son not being athletic and that he "just likes different things."

"Jack loves sports. He wants to try hard, and he never wants to disappoint his dad," Brady said of his older son. "That was me. I'd wake up early on weekends to do stuff with my dad. That's why I didn't party a lot. If Dad wanted to golf, I wanted to be there with him. And if I ever missed those things, it would crush me.

"When Benny came along, I thought he would be just like Jack," the athlete continued. "So I was like, 'C'mon, let's do this.' And he was like, 'Nope.' And I was like, 'What? No, do this!' And Gisele kept saying to me, 'Would you effing understand that your son is different?' It was hard for me. I was like, 'What do you mean? He's a boy; he should just do all these things that I do.'

"The reality is that Benny just likes different things," Brady added. "And it's great because now I just have to go do what he wants to do. When we do that, we have the best time. He's like, 'OMG, Dad, you're so funny.' He loves joking, and I joke back."
