It looks like Tom Brady will be spending the upcoming holidays alone.

In October 2022, Brady and model Gisele Bündchen announced that they were ending their marriage after 13 years together — making this Christmas the first time the couple won't be spending the holiday season together.

Why Brady is spending his first Christmas without his children in a hotel

The NFL star recently revealed that he will be joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the field on Christmas Day instead of spending the day with his children and family.

During an episode of Brady's SiriusXM “Let’s Go! with Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray” podcast, the NFL quarterback candidly discussed his plans for the holidays.

"It'll be a new experience that I've never had before that I'm going to have to learn how to deal with," he shared during the December 19 episode. "I think that's what life's about."

“I’m gonna learn how to deal with Christmas Eve in a hotel, and I’m gonna have to learn how to deal with Christmas and Christmas night and still go out there and be a professional,” Brady continued when asked what he had “learned from this football season.”

He noted that despite not spending actual Christmas day with his children, he will see them and celebrate on the day after.

“And then look forward to celebrating Christmas with my kids the day after, which is, you know, just part of what football season has been for a long time,” he added. “So it’s just, again, emotional aspects that allow us to thrive.”

Despite the decision to spend Christmas alone, Brady remained optimistic about the "new experience" it will bring him and his children.

"It’ll be a new experience that I’ve never had before that I’m gonna learn how to deal with … I think that’s what life’s about.”
