During a Super Bowl LV interview, Brady states, “My son, who is 10, his Portuguese is amazing. My 8-year-old daughter is fluent in Portuguese, and unfortunately, their Dad is way behind in his understanding of how to speak the language… I know when they speak Portuguese I get a lot of what they are saying, you know even when they are taking shots at their Dad.

Brady states that even Bündchen is not merciful towards his inability to speak in Portuguese and teases him in front of their children. He adds that his Portuguese even invokes a surprising reaction from his daughter. It seems to be something that Brady cherishes as a father. He is a father of 3 children, and they seem to enjoy his every imperfection off the field.
