Like father like daughter.
Tom Brady celebrated daughter Vivian’s birthday on Sunday by posting a sweet photo of the duo on Instagram as they threw a soccer ball into the Buccaneers’ locker room.
“Now 9 years old and there has never been a sweet, kinder angel than you Vivi!” Brady, 44, gushed on Instagram. “Daddy loves you sssoooo much!!! Happy Birthday. I look forward to many more days playing football together.”
The photo shows Brady – who is in his 22nd NFL season and second in Tampa Bay – waiting for a pass from Vivian, which he shares with his wife Gisele Bündchen.
Within moments of the quarterback’s Instagram post went live, Vivian received a slew of birthday messages from her father’s fans and followers, including David Beckham.
“Happy Birthday Vivi❤️ @tombrady we’re in trouble man ” he wrote.
It remains to be seen if Vivian will see her father in action on Sunday, when the Buccaneers (8-3) take on the Falcons (5-6) in Atlanta, who has been supporting her favorite player all season.
In October, Bündchen, 41, posed for a game-day selfie with Vivian and son Benjamin, 11, ahead of Brady’s return to New England.
“We’re done! Let’s go Buks!! Let’s go papai!!!” she captioned the photo on Instagram.
In addition to Vivian, Brady also shares Benjamin with Bündchen, whom he has been married to since 2009. He also has a son, 14-year-old Jack, with ex Bridget Moynahan.
Maybe Brady will get a birthday “W” for Vivian on Sunday afternoon.
