Tom Brady shows how much he loves retirement in an epic Instagram party video of beach soccer, golf, and surfing with NFL friends and family: ‘Grateful to celebrate this wonderful life on and off the field’
Tom Brady absolutely loves life in retirement, based on his latest Instagram posts.
The 45-year-old shared a video of him spending the time of his life at the beach with friends and family, where he can be seen playing soccer, golf and water skiing along the sea.
“Grateful for the opportunity to celebrate this wonderful life on and off the field with friends and family.”
“More grateful to have 30 minutes of beach soccer without serious injuries,” he added, posting three crying people with a laughing emoji next to them.
Brady posted a video in late March of his beach vacation with his son Jack and former bandmate Julian Edelman. The video posted on Wednesday appears to be from the same occasion.

The video shows Brady cutting a cake bearing the number 12 – the number synonymous with his career – as his friends and family cheer and congratulate him on his time in football.
Brady has been known to follow a strict diet but now that he may have moved away from the game, he might allow himself a piece of cake once in a while.
Brady retired — for the second time — in February after a celebrated 23-season and career that saw him win an astonishing seven Super Bowl titles.
His final season in the NFL was somewhat overshadowed by his divorce from his wife of 13 years, Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen. There have been persistent suggestions that she was unhappy with his “unwillingness” last year.
In his statement at the time last October, Brady said it was a “difficult” and “painful” decision the couple made after “a lot of thought” while Gisele, 42, said, “Ending a marriage is never easy…we grew apart.
But now he seems to be living his best life with his friends and family gathered around him in the sunshine.
While Brady has insisted, in his retirement video this year, that he’s walking away from the game for good, rumors remain that he could make an unlikely comeback.
But at the beginning of March, he launched the letter with a hilarious response on Twitter: “Anyone who thinks I have time to get back into the NFL has never adopted a two-month-old kitten for their daughter.”

Brady had two children with Bundchen – a son, Benjamin, and a daughter, Vivian. His eldest son, Jack, was from a previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.
Brady’s last game was in January, when his team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, lost against the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs.
This game was played on January 16th but it wasn’t until February 1st that Brady announced on Instagram that he was quitting.
”Good morning guys. I’ll get to the point right away. I am retiring, forever, Brady said in his emotional statement. “I know the process was a bit too big last time, so when I got up this morning I thought I’d just hit record and let you guys know first.”
It won’t be long. You only get one passionate retirement essay and you used mine last year so… really, thank you guys so much to each and every one of you for supporting me.
My family, friends, colleagues and competitors. I could go on forever, there’s a lot. Thank you guys for allowing me to live my ultimate dream. I wouldn’t change anything. I love you all.’
Last year, Brady and Gisele Bundchen announced that they were separating after 13 years of marriage
