Inside Tom Brady’s NFL retirement party

Celebrity News

Tom Brady gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at his star-studded NFL retirement party.

The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback shared a video to his Instagram on Wednesday that showed several of his former teammates — including Rob Gronkowski — celebrating his career.

“Congrats to Tom on retirement,” Gronkowski said during a toast at the party. “You are a special guy man, thank you for everything. Thank you for showing me the ropes.”

The montage video showed Brady raising the roof and dancing alongside his friends and family members.

Brady, 45, panned to some of the extravagant details from the festivity, including a cake designed to be a football field with two cake helmets atop — one for the Buccaneers and a second for the New England Patriots — along with a football.

His signature number 12 was also outlined in red roses in front of a white flower wall to commemorate 23 seasons with the signature digits.

“Grateful to have the chance to celebrate such an amazing life on and off the field with friends and family,” Brady captioned the Instagram video.

A custom cake was decorated with helmets from his former teams.
The famed athlete’s mom and sisters also celebrated him.

It appears that the retirement extravaganza took place a few weeks ago, as some of his close friends and ex-teammates — like Julian Edelman — posted videos and photos of them golfing and playing football on the beach in late March.

Elsewhere in the video montage, the former football star posed for several snaps with his mom, sisters and three kids — two of whom he shares with his ex-wife, Gisele Bündchen.

Bündchen, 42, did not appear to be present for the retirement party, since sources previously told Page Six that the coupe had an epic fight over his decision to retire and then un-retire last year.

The former Victoria’s Secret Angel later denied that Brady’s career led to their ultimate divorce, telling Vanity Fair last month that the ultimatum rumors were “the craziest thing [she’s] ever heard.”

Brady’s kids also appeared to join in on the fun.

Brady’s ex-wife, Gisele Bündchen, did not appear to make it to the bash.

“If there’s one person I want to be the happiest in the world, it’s him, believe me,” she told the outlet, adding, “I want him to achieve and to conquer.”

Brady announced he was retiring “for good” exactly one year after he initially did, and almost three months after finalizing his divorce from Bündchen after 13 years of marriage.

The exes share son Benjamin, 13, and daughter Vivian, 10. He also co-parents son Jack, 15, with ex Bridget Moynahan.
