Watch: Tom Brady Faces a "Difficult Issue" With Wife Gisele Bundchen

For Tom Brady, the family that footballs together stays together. His wife, Gisele Bündchen, has other ideas.

On the newest episode of his SiriusXM podcast Let's Go! with Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Graythe Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, 44, talks about spending a wonderful Thanksgiving with his family, which included watching his Michigan Wolverines' big win over rivals Ohio State Buckeyes on Nov. 27 with his son, Jack, who he refers to as a "little future [Michigan] Wolverine."

The seven-time Super Bowl-winning QB reflected on playing for his alma mater and how victorious it feels to win at that age. "I was fortunate to be a part of that [Michigan-Ohio State] rivalry in five games that I played against them," Brady recalled. "We won the first three which were all really great wins. And then I lost one the first year I started. I won my fifth year as a senior at home in the ‘Big House.' I feel so great for those seniors because you go out with that victory."

Tom Brady & His Kids' Cutest Family Moments

The famous athlete added that his oldest child Jack, witnessed Michigan's win alongside him. "I had a little future Wolverine, my son Jack, sitting on the bed with me as I was jumping around and we were wrestling and I said, ‘That's where you're gonna be! You're gonna be in the ‘Big House' someday. You're gonna be the starting quarterback for Michigan.'

But not everyone in the Brady household is sold on the 14-year-old following in his father's famous footsteps. "And my wife [Gisele] was like, ‘Just let him be what he wants to be for god's sakes!'" Tom recalled about Jack's stepmom. "It was a great day for our family."

Only time will tell whether their eldest son Jack takes on football, but its safe to say he's garnered the support from both of his parents either way.

Tom, 44, and Gisele, 41, share son Benjamin, 11, and Vivian, 8. He also has a 14-year-old son, Jack, from a previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.
