Tom Brady was born in San Mateo, California on August 3rd, 1977, to a sports-loving family. He is Galynn and Thomas Brady’s only son and fourth child. Nancy, Julie, and Maureen are his three older sisters.
He was brought up in a Catholic household. He used to go to San Francisco 49ers games with his family when he was little. Joe Montana was a favorite of his. His favorite teams as a kid were the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics
. He went to football camp as a kid at the College of San Mateo, where he was taught how to throw the football by future NFL quarterback Tony Graziani, who was his camp counselor.
Brady attended Junipero Serra High School in San Mateo, where he excelled in football, baseball, and basketball. During his junior year, he was named the starting quarterback for his high school squad. He prepared highlight tapes and sent them to institutions he wanted to attend during his senior year
. Athlete recruiting in college was drastically different in the mid-1990s. Brady would be a four-star recruit today if he graduated from high school today. In 1995, these rankings were not frequently used.
Brady’s college choices were limited to Cal, UCLA, USC, Michigan, and Illinois. Brady was also selected in the 18th round of the 1995 MLB Draft by the Montreal Expos. Brady has committed to the University of Michigan to play college football.
For the first two years of his college career, Brady was the backup quarterback (behind future NFL quarterback Brian Griese). Brady had a hard time finding playing time. During the 1998 and 1999 seasons, he started every game.
He set new Wolverine records for most pass attempts and completions in a season during his first full year as a starter. Michigan won 20 of the 25 games in which Brady played. Despite an outstanding college career, he was not selected in the first round of the draught. The New England Patriots selected Brady with the 199th pick in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft.
Brady is regarded as the biggest “steal” in NFL Draft history due to his late selection. In his second season, he was named the team’s starting quarterback, and he went on to play with the Patriots for 20 seasons, setting the NFL record for most seasons as a quarterback for a single team.
He is one of only two quarterbacks in NFL history to win a Super Bowl in their rookie season. He is the winningest quarterback in NFL history, and during his time with the Patriots, he never had a losing season as a starter.
He won more division titles (16) with the Patriots than any other quarterback in NFL history. He is the all-time leader in playoff wins and appearances by an NFL player, with a 30–11 record.
Since 2011, Brady has guided the Patriots to an NFL-record eighth straight AFC title games (and 13 overall). Brady has also been selected to 14 Pro Bowls, tying for the most in NFL history.
For his apparent role in the Deflategate football-tampering controversy, Brady was suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season. Two of the next three Super Bowls were won by Brady and the Patriots.
Tom Brady announced his departure from the New England Patriots to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March 2020. While in Tampa, he reportedly pays $70,000 per month to rent Derek Jeter’s opulent custom-built waterfront property.

Brady was in a relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan from 2004 till late 2006. Moynahan confirmed to People magazine on February 18, 2007, that she was more than three months pregnant with Brady’s child. Brady and Moynahan ended their relationship about the time Moynahan became pregnant in early December 2006. In August of 2007, John Edward Thomas Moynahan was born.
In December 2006, Brady began dating Brazilian model Gisele Bündchen. On a blind date, they were introduced by a common acquaintance. Brady and Bündchen married in a quiet ceremony at St. Monica Catholic Church in Santa Monica, California, on February 26, 2009. The pair conducted a second wedding ceremony in Costa Rica in April 2009. Their daughter was born in 2012, and their boy was born in 2009.
Transcendental Meditation, yoga, an 80/20 diet (meaning 80 percent alkaline and 20 percent acidic), early bedtime, resistance training, and neuroplasticity training are all part of Brady’s stringent health regimen. He and his family follow the TB12 Method, a controversial stringent diet. He recommends consuming a daily amount of water equal to 1/32 of one’s body weight. Most fruits, mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, coffee, Gatorade, white sugar or flour, gluten, dairy, soda, cereal, white rice, potatoes, and bread are off-limits to him.
Highlights Of Salary
Brady is paid a whopping $30 million per year. Tom made $230 million in pay alone throughout his tenure with the Patriots from 2000 to 2019. He made an additional $100 million in sponsorships within the same time period. Gisele Bündchen’s career earnings were approximately $500 million within the same time span.
He will have made a minimum of $280 million in salary and $140 million in endorsements by the end of his two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tom Brady’s lifetime earnings are expected to reach $420 million at the end of his career.
Purchasing Real Estate
Tom and Gisele cut the price of their Massachusetts home in early 2020. In 2019, custom-built home in a gated enclave in Brookline went on the market for $40 million. In January 2020, the price of the 5-bedroom, the 7-bathroom property was reduced to $33.9 million.
Tom and Gisele paid $9 million for an undeveloped block of land in LA’s Brentwood district in 2009. They spent an additional $20 million over the next three years building a 14,000 square-foot home that they only lived in for a year. Dr. Dre purchased the property from them in May 2014 for a cool $50 million. That’s a really good method to make $21 million.
Tom and Gisele paid $25.5 million for a flat on the 12th level of a New York City building in 2018. They sold this unit for $40 million in December 2020. In the same building, they still own a modest unit.

Is It True That the Dolphins Are Attempting to Get Tom Brady?
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, none of the stories about the Dolphins pursuing Tom Brady make sense to him. On Friday, Rapoport spoke on The Pat McAfee Show and stated that while “rumors” about the new Brady-Miami report exist, the report does not compute.
