The Howard Stern Show, April 2020

In an interview with Howard Stern, Brady revealed that his marriage suffered a lot due to his intense focus on his career. He revealed Bundchen had written him a letter a few years ago to make him realise that he needed to make some sacrifices for the sake of his family.

“There was a couple years ago, she didn’t feel like I was doing my part for the family,” Brady said, continuing, “She felt like I would play football all season, and she would take care of the house.”

“She wasn’t satisfied with our marriage. So I needed to make a change in that. Her point was, ‘Of course, this works for you. It all works for you. But it doesn’t work for me.’ “, he said.
