Most of Tom Brady’s followers on Instagram stick around for the football photos. But every once in a while, he offers a glimpse into his private life — and he just posted one of his cutest pictures yet.
On Wednesday, the New England Patriots quarterback shared a seriously sweet snap of himself with his daughter Vivian, and hearts are melting around the world.
The two of them are going head-to-head on the field in the picture, but not in the way Brady is used to. The photo is a study in contrasts; there he is, sweaty in his football gear bending down to share a loving moment with the 8-year-old. And they both couldn’t look happier. The caption is icing on the cake. “Daddy’s little Girlie Girl” he wrote.
It’s a nice break from the usual football stuff, especially since fans don’t usually get to see his softer side. And his followers agree. “This is the BEST photo ever,” one follower proclaimed. “With all the attention and pressure put on you, you always put family first!! Takes a special person, much respect to you!!” There are plenty of descriptors like “cute” and “precious” being thrown around.
“Oh my god what a beautiful picture. This should be a painting hanging In your home,” one fan wrote. “You should frame this moment,” someone else echoed. Sounds like a great gift, and perfect timing since his birthday is tomorrow.
