Tom Brady recently opened up about his early experience with fatherhood while appearing on "DeepCut with VicBlends," saying he was figuring things out as he went after becoming a first time dad. Brady has three children: Jack, 16, whom he shares with his ex girlfriend, Bridget Moynahan, along with Ben, 14, and Vivian, 11, whom he shares with ex-wife Gisele Bundchen.

"You get better as a parent, I think, because, you know, when you’re a young parent, you don’t really know what you’re doing. You’re winging it. You’re trying to wing it," Brady said in the recent interview. "So, I think when you become a parent, you’re trying new things for the first time. You’re going through all these things for the first time, so you don’t exactly know always the right thing to say. As you go, you get a little bit better at it, you get a little more understanding of it, and you try to just continue to kind of refresh your skills as a parent." Brady mentioned that he would self-assess in an effort to make sure he was always being the best parents he could be. "'Am I listening or am I talking? Am I mentoring or am I disciplining? Am I holding them accountable or am I letting them get away with things?'" Brady noted.

Brady retired from the NFL last year after returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2022. "Good morning, guys. I’ll get to the point right away," he said in a video posted Feb. 1, 2023. "I’m retiring for good. I know the process was a pretty big deal last time. So, when I woke up this morning, I figured I’d just press record and let you guys know first. So, I won’t be long-winded. You only get one super emotional retirement essay, and I used mine up last year." The quarterback said that he was "not opposed" to returning to the NFL if a team was in need. "I don’t know … I’m always going to be in good shape, always be able to throw the ball. So, to come in for a little bit, like MJ coming back, I don’t know if they’d let me, but I wouldn’t be opposed to it."
