Watch: Tom Brady Gets Love From Gisele Bundchen on Daughter's Birthday

Tom Brady's kids are his biggest fans. 

Need proof? On Dec. 6, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback shared a screenshot of a supportive text he received from son Benjamin before a game. 

In the exchange, the 12-year-old told his dad he would be tuning in and asked him to "say hi to me on camera." Of course, Tom agreed, and Ben then left him with some words of encouragement.

"Go and do what you do best," he wrote. "Kick some butt."

And Tom appreciated the pep talk. "The best motivation any Dad can have!!" the seven-time Super Bowl champ captioned the post. "I love you Benny."  

In addition to Ben, Tom shares daughter Vivian, 10, with his ex-wife Gisele Bündchen. He also has a son named Jack, 15, from his previous relationship with Bridget Moynahan.

Tom and Gisele filed for and finalized their divorce in October, with a source telling E! News they agreed on joint custody of their children.

In their respective statements, the athlete, 45, and the supermodel, 42, noted they split amicably and vowed to co-parent. Fans have already seen subtle signs of support with Gisele dropping heart emojis underneath Tom's recent social media posts in which he paid tribute to Vivian on her birthday and called Jack his "inspiration."


As for the reason for the breakup, Gisele suggested she and Tom just weren't endgame. "The decision to end a marriage is never easy but we have grown apart," she wrote in part of her statement at the time of their divorce, "and while it is, of course, difficult to go through something like this, I feel blessed for the time we had together and only wish the best for Tom always."
