Just call Tom Brady “the perfect 10.” Tom, 43, led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to upset Aaron Rodgers the Green Bay Packers in a 31-26 victory. The win secured the Bucs a spot in Super Bowl LV, making this the tenth time Tom will compete for the NFL Championship. The accomplishment left his haters salty and his fans euphoric – including Tom’s former girlfriend, Bridget Moynahan. Could not be more proud @tombrady said he would do it and he did. Congratulations @buccaneers,” the Blue Bloods actress posted on Jan. 24, shortly after the Bucs beat the Packers.
In the post, Bridget, 49, shared a pair of photos, including Tom and his and Bridget’s son, Jack, 13. Tom and Bridget welcomed Jack in 2007, shortly after the two ended their two-year relationship. Despite the breakup, Tom has maintained a close relationship with his son, which was no more evident than on Sunday. After the Bucs punched their ticket to Super Bowl LV, Tom ran to the sidelines to celebrate with his boy. “Can I say hi to my son?” he asked a security worker, who then allowed Jack to come down to the sidelines. The father and son embraced each other in a touching moment.
"Can I say hi to my son?"

Being able to go up against one of the greatest, if not the greatest quarterback of all time in his 150th Super Bowl,” said Patrick in his post-game interview, per CBS Sports. “mean it’s going to be a great experience for me. To go out there and get to have a chance to repeat and get to do it against the best, I mean it’s something special, and I’m excited for the opportunity.”
