That came back to bite her Sunday night in Super Bowl LII, when Brady was targeted as a receiver on a trick play and — gah — dropped the ball. This time, after hubby passed for 505 yards in New England’s 41-33 loss to the Eagles, Bündchen had nothing but congrats for the victors, in person and electronically.
“Gisele, walking a back hallway to leave the stadium, took time to personally congratulate every Eagles player she ran into,” Yahoo’s Dan Wetzel reported. “They looked star-struck.”
On Instagram, she clearly remained a Brady fan (duh) and wrote: “Congratulations Eagles for winning the Super Bowl, what a game that was. Congratulations Patriots for giving your best and to my love, we are incredibly proud of you because we are able to see [every] day all the commitment, sacrifice and hard work that you have devoted to become the best in what you do. We love you!”

Bündchen also consoled the three Brady kids while using the loss as a teachable moment. When daughter Vivian, who is 5, noted the Eagles had won, Bündchen replied, according to USA Today, “Just this time. Daddy won five times. They never won before. Their whole life, they never won a Super Bowl. You have to let someone else win sometimes.”
“We have to share,” she also said, according to the paper. “Sharing is caring.’’
Meanwhile, actress Bridget Moynahan, the mother of Brady’s older son, offered what some assumed was a bit of shade but was more likely a statement of fact, pointing out on Twitter that Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was “having an amazing game” just as the fourth quarter was beginning.
