Supermodel Gisele Bündchen posted a photo of daughter Vivian, 3, via Instagram Sunday. “Go papai go! #gopats,” the former Victoria’s Secret model, 36, captioned the image of her preschooler cheering on her famous papa, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
The NFL star – who also shares 6-year-old son Benjamin with Bündchen – recently dished on fatherhood.
“I need more patience with my kids,” Brady, 39, told PEOPLE. “I have a quick fuse sometimes, so when they’re older I imagine them going, ‘Dad, you were so hard on me.’ ”
He added: “I think discipline’s important, and typically that’s more the man’s role in the house.”
But don’t expect him to be too tough on his daughter.
“No way. It’s too hard — she’s too cute, and she just says, ‘Dad, please?’ and I say ‘Okay,’ ” he confessed. “My wife always says, ‘You gotta be tougher on her!’ and I say, ‘I can’t.[Vivian]’s, like, half my wife, so you know … that’s just the way it goes.”
The football star – who is also dad to 9-year-old son Jack with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan – says the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.
“There’s definitely times when they stop and I go, ‘Whoa, yeah, that’s my kid,’ ” said Brady with a laugh. “When they pout and when they don’t get what they want and they stammer around the house — my daughter will cross her arms. It’s just the best … I’m a little bit like that.”
