Tom Brady's Super Bowl kit list: shoulder pads, carbon steel facemask, mesh practice jersey, knee pads, helmet…necklace.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, when you sit down to watch the Super Bowl LI on Sunday night, don't be surprised to see the famous Patriots quarterback wearing a pendant, given to him by his supermodel wife, Gisele Bündchen.
In an interview with USA Today on Monday, the father-of-three revealed he will be wearing the necklace because his wife hopes it will have protective powers to shield him from his opponents, the Falcons.
'She gave me this [necklace] for protection, and she'd be really happy that I'm wearing it because she doesn't like anyone hitting me. She always says, 'Throw the ball really fast, really fast.' So that's what I try to do,' he admitted.
Sweet baby Moses, that might have been the cutest thing we've heard – ever.
'I've been very blessed to find her. Wonderful woman, wonderful partner. She does everything,' he added.
Anyone else's ovaries exploding right now?
It's not entirely surprising Brady and Bündchen's love for each other has us wanting to weep with joy especially given that, according to the Post, the Brazilian model once wrote an email to family and friends asking them to pray for her husband ahead of the Super Bowl XLVI against the Giants in 2012.
I've been very blessed to find her. Wonderful woman, wonderful partner. She does everything.
She wrote: 'I kindly ask all of you to join me on this positive chain and pray for him, so he can feel confident, healthy and strong. Envision him happy and fulfilled experiencing with his team a victory this Sunday.'
Gisele, sharing is caring. We'll happily take Tom off you any time you need a break.
