Learning about the dynamics between famous couples can be interesting, if for no other reason than they often reveal themselves to be just as insecure or neurotic or boring as you and I—usually much more so. Tom Brady shared some of this insight when speaking about his relationship with his wife, international supermodel Gisele Bündchen.
As it seems, his tactic for a happy home is to act like a toddler until he gets his way, we learn via ABC News:
"I like attention from [my wife, Gisele Bündchen], so when I'm not getting it I let her know in immature ways, like a young, immature child would," he told Man of the World magazine for its latest cover story. "You throw fits and you pout and you whine until you get what you want."
COOL STORY BRUH. That certainly sounds sexy and exactly what one would want out of a mature, stable life partner. To all the grown ladies out there, is this not what you desire and crave? To feel like you're raising your children and your husband? Feeling all hot and bothered yet?
Gisele, being an adult woman, is magically able to see through the antics of a child, so Tom Brady knows he's going to have to switch things up. "'[But] she's on to me. She knows all of my tricks,' he continued. 'So now I have to learn new tricks!'"
It is confusing why exactly one would share this information with the world. It's not particularly funny and it's certainly not charming or endearing. It kinda makes you look like the typical spoiled man-child with very little self-awareness that professional athletics so often breeds. Oh, did I just answer my own question there?
I wish the happy couple well and Gisele many weekend spa getaways. They've been married since 2009 so maybe by the time they hit ten years, Tom will have graduated to acting like a brooding teenager to emotionally manipulate his wife into getting what he wants.
