Tom Brady’s daughter saddles up!
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, 45, showed his support for his nine-year-old daughter, Vivian Lake, with a heartfelt Instagram Story on Wednesday night.
Brady posted a photo showing her baby girl on horseback as she trotted through a corral while wearing a helmet and riding gloves. He simply captioned the photo, “My baby,” followed by three red heart emojis.
Vivian’s photo concluded a series of three other photos posted to Brady’s Instagram story that featured her 15-year-old son John “Jack” Edward playing football at what appeared to be a Buccaneers practice.

The first image showed Jack in a small group with his teammates, proudly calling him “Just one of the boys”. In another snap, Brady told his son to “Fire that pigskin!!!” as the teenager prepared to kick a soccer ball.
The Instagram story accompanied a post that Brady dedicated to Jack on his main grid. “My inspiration ❤️,” he captioned a photo of his eldest son preparing to kick a soccer ball as he watched with a smile in the background.
Social media tributes to Jack and Vivian were uploaded on Thanksgiving night, just after the athlete said he wanted to be the “best dad” he could be to his children on his SiriusXM podcast, let’s go!, Monday in Conversation with co-host Jim Gray and guest Charles Barkley.

In addition to Jack and Vivian, the quarterback is also the father of 12-year-old son Benjamin Rein. Brady welcomed Vivian and Ben with new ex Gisele Bündchen, and Jack with Bridget Moynahan.
It’s a role the new single dad doesn’t take lightly.
“I consider myself a parent and I’m grateful on Thanksgiving, it’s always family time,” he added on the Nov. 21 episode of the podcast. “When you think about that vacation and the commitment that parents and my parents have made to me and my career, it’s amazing.”
