What makes Tom Brady the laughingstock of his house: ‘Doesn’t know anything’


Tom Brady is a man of many talents, but being bilingual is not one of them.

Brady, the quarterback and future first-ballot Hall of Famer, is famously married to Gisele Bundchen, a Brazilian supermodel. Bundchen taught her native Portuguese to her children, but her husband admits he had not quite picked up the language.

“Let me say this — my son, who is 10, his Portuguese is amazing,’’ said Brady, whose Tampa Bay Buccaneers will face the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 2021 on Sunday. “My 8-year-old daughter is fluent in Portuguese. Unfortunately, their dad is way behind in his understanding of how to speak the language. I can usually understand a lot of things my wife will say — ‘Papai não sabe de nada,’ which means, ‘Daddy doesn’t know anything.’ I usually get that a lot in the house.

“I know when they’re speaking Portuguese kind of what they’re saying, even if they’re taking shots at their dad. Sometimes when I do use my Portuguese words my daughter will be like, ‘Daddy, you spoke Portuguese,’ which is pretty great.’’
