The 7-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady has learned to remain calm under pressure- on the football field and when he has to keep a huge secret from his wife, Gisele Bündchen. The pair has been ecstatic since June 2009, following the announcement of Bündchen’s pregnancy with their first child.

During this exciting time, Brady came to know about the sex of their first child while Bündchen remained unaware. While talking about the secrecy with Boston’s WEEI Sports Radio, he stated, “I’m really the only one that knows. My dad asked me. I haven’t told him. [Gisele] doesn’t know. It’s a pretty good feeling knowing something that no one else knows.

Brady seemed to have relished keeping this news a secret from his wife (Of course, with her permission). He had also put extra care into the words he used around Bündchen. The then-Patriots QB had been mixing up his pronounces to honor her process and keep it a surprise.
