An estimated 103.4 million people watched as the New England Patriots lost the Super Bowl to the Philadelphia Eagles this year—a heartbreaking defeat star quarterback Tom Brady is using as a valuable lesson for his three kids Thomas, Benjamin, and Vivian. A post shared by Tom Brady (@tombrady) on Mar 7, 2018 at 8:52am PST Although Brady’s performance in Super Bowl LII was record-breaking with 505 passing yards—proving the 40-year-old has plenty to be proud of—he reflects on that loss as an incredible parenting moment during episode six of his Facebook Watch series Tom vs. Time. “That was the first time that I had seen my kids really react in that way. You know, Benny was crying, Vivi was crying, and they were sad for me and sad for the Patriots,” said Brady.  “But I just said to them, ‘Look, you guys, this is a great lesson. We don’t always win. We try our best and sometimes it doesn’t go the way we want.'" Congratulations Eagles for winning the Super bowl, what a game that was! Congratulations Patriots for giving your best and to my love, we are incredibly proud of you because we are able to see every day all the commitment, sacrifice and hard work that you have devoted to become the best in what you do. We love you! ❤️ Parabéns Eagles por ganhar o Super bowl, que jogo! Parabéns Patriots por dar o seu melhor e meu amor, estamos incrivelmente orgulhosos de você porque vemos todos os dias o compromisso, o sacrifício e o trabalho árduo que você dedicou para se tornar o melhor no que você faz. Nós te amamos! A post shared by Gisele Bündchen (@gisele) on Feb 5, 2018 at 5:15am PST Brady uses the opportunity to acknowledge how proud he is of his team for overcoming adversities throughout the season—but he circles back to that moment being pivotal to his role as a father. “That’s probably one of the best moments I have had as a parent because you really feel like you are parenting, you know? It speaks to growing up, but you wake up the next day and your life moves on.” When your dad is Tom Brady, witnessing a high-pressure loss isn’t always a familiar experience. We can only imagine Thomas, Benjamin, and Vivian see their father as a superhero—too young to fully grasp the gravity in which being an iconic NFL star encompasses. Learning to work your hardest and accept shortcomings with grace is an important takeaway that translates to all aspects of life. Love him or hate him, we give Brady credit for capitalizing on his failure in order to help his kids grow.
