Happy birthday to seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady.
In honor of the star QB’s 44th birthday, his wife Gisele Bündchen posted pictures of her and her loving husband. The caption started with the opening verse of the classic and timeless, song “I Love You Baby,” by Newark, NJ native Frankie Valli.
“You’re just too good to be true. Can’t take my eyes off of you. You’d be like Heaven to touch. I wanna hold you so much. At long last, love has arrived. And I thank God I’m alive. You’re just too good to be true. Can’t take my eyes off of you.”
Bündchen then continued to write a brief but heartfelt, message to her husband: “Happy Birthday love of my life! Thank you for sharing your life with me! Te amo @tombrady”
Brady and Bündchen met in 2009 when they were set up on a blind date. The two met at Turks & Frogs, a Turkish wine bar located in New York City’s West Village. Apparently, it was love at first sight.
“I knew right way — the first time I saw him,” Bündchen told Vanity Fair in 2009. “We met through a friend. The moment I saw him, he smiled and I was like, ‘That is the most beautiful, charismatic smile I’ve ever seen!’”
They got married on February 26, 2009, in Santa Monica, Calif. It was a private ceremony with only friends and family in attendance. Then, the duo had another wedding with their extended families in Costa Rica. Brady and Bündchen will celebrate their 13th anniversary in February.
Brady is currently the oldest active quarterback in the NFL. The next oldest is Ben Roethlisberger at 39-years-old. The three-time MVP has plenty left in the tank after winning a Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but he realizes that time may be running out.
“I’ve always said 45 was the age that I wanted to reach and that was my goal,” Brady said. “This year I’ll be 44, so next year I’ll be 45. I got a two-year contract.”
