Gisele Bundchen has revealed that her 13-year-old son Benjamin was bullied in Boston for not wanting to follow in his father Tom Brady’s footsteps on the football field.
While her older brother Jack, whose mother is Bridget Moynahan, has already started out as quarterback for their high school football team, the 42-year-old model said vanity fair that your teen prefers “no-ball” sports like surfing, jujitsu, and skiing, as well as drawing on his iPad.
He went on to comment on how difficult it is to place the ‘athletic pressure of being’ the son of one of the greatest NFL players of all time on a child.
The Brazilian beauty then makes a vague reference to “one particular bullying incident” that occurred after one of Benjamin’s baseball games.
Bundchen didn’t go into any further detail, but her ex-spouse has previously spoken about how their first-born Jack “loves sports” while Benny “likes different things.”

“(Jack) wants to try hard and he never wants to let his dad down,” Brady told Men’s Health in 2019.
He continued: ‘I would get up early on the weekends to do things with my dad. That’s why I didn’t go out partying much. If dad wanted to play golf, I wanted to be there with him. And if I ever missed those things, it would crush me.
Despite initially assuming that his Benjamin would “be like Jack” and want to play football at his alma mater, the University of Michigan, Brady had to accept that he simply wasn’t interested.
After trying to push him to play, Brady said Gisele told him, “Would you understand that your son is different?”
‘It was hard for me. I was like, ‘What do you mean? He is a boy; he should do all these things that I do,’ he recalled of his reaction.
The father-of-three concluded: ‘The reality is that Benny likes different things. And it’s great because now I just have to go do what he wants to do. When we do that, we have the best time.’
Brady and Bundchen initially met in the mid-2000s and began dating in 2007.

They got engaged in January 2009 and tied the knot just a month later.
After more than a decade of being one of Hollywood’s power couples, rumors began to circulate that the couple was having marital problems.
After months of speculation and Brady’s shock decision not to retire from football for one final season with the Buccaneers, Bundchen filed for divorce in October.
Brady retired from soccer for the second time earlier this month.
The supermodel opened up about her concerns regarding her ex-husband’s NFL career during an interview with elle which was published in September.
During the sit-in, the figure of the fashion industry stated: “This is a very violent sport, and I have my children and I would like him to be more present.”
However, he expressed that he wanted his children to respect their father and his decisions.
“Seeing my children succeed and grow into the beautiful little humans that they are, seeing them succeed and feel fulfilled in their career, makes me happy.”

The former athlete opened up about co-parenting with his ex-wife during an episode of his Come on! podcastwhere he stressed that he was focused primarily on the well-being of his children.
“Obviously the good news is that it’s a very friendly situation and I’m really focused on two things, taking care of my family and certainly my children,” he said.
Brady added: ‘We all have our unique challenges in life. We are all humans. We do the best we can do… I want to be a great father to my children and also always try to do things the right way.’
Bundchen has been taking life as a single woman by the horns and has sparked relationship rumors with jiu-jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente and billionaire developer Jeffrey Soffer.
