These Are The Blue Bloods Cast’s Actual Partners

There are so many procedural dramas on TV, from all the “Law & Order” shows to the many “CSI” spinoffs. But “Blue Bloods” is different. This CBS drama follows the Reagan family as they navigate the ups and downs of not only being deeply entrenched in the New York City justice system, but also the dramas that just come from being a family, as per CBS. There’s Frank Reagan, played by Tom Selleck, who is the patriarch of the family and the police commissioner. Donnie Wahlberg brings Danny Reagan, an experienced detective, to life, while Bridget Moynahan portrays Erin Reagan, an assistant district attorney. There’s also Henry Reagan (Len Cariou), Frank’s father, and quite a few other characters, as well.

Naturally the large and loud Reagan family gets into lots of arguments over police work and cases, but the show is also full of romantic drama. Like when Jamie Reagan and partner Eddie Janko gave into seasons of sexual tension and finally got married. But what about the actors that bring the Reagans to life? These are the “Blue Bloods” cast’s actual partners.

Tom Selleck, who plays Frank Reagan on “Blue Bloods,” actually has two marriages under his belt. As per AARP the Magazine, he married model Jacqueline Ray in 1971. Though Selleck adopted her son, the pair split 10 years later. Lucky for Selleck, he met his current wife in 1984. Selleck told AARP that he was visiting London when he saw the musical “Cats,” went backstage, and had his breath taken away by Jillie Mack because, as he tells it, “she looked pretty good in a leotard.” Though it took the “Magnum P.I.” actor a few more theater tickets to work up the courage to go on a date with Mack, their romance blossomed. Selleck and Mack married three years later and had a daughter they named Hannah.

These days, Selleck and “Macksy” — as he lovingly calls her — live on a ranch in Ventura, California (as per People). Though Mack didn’t love the ranch at first, she was willing to do anything for her beloved husband. “It was such the wisdom of Tom,” she told AARP. “He knew he needed to buy back his anonymity, to replenish the soul.”

Bridget Moynahan found love with businessman Andrew Frankel

Bridget Moynahan hasn’t just made headlines for playing Erin Reagan on “Blue Bloods.” The actress was also well-known for publicly dating and then publicly splitting from football pro Tom Brady, and then announcing she was pregnant with his child a few months after their breakup, as noted by Us Weekly. But Moynahan’s love life saw a wonderful rebound after all that Brady drama when she met her now-husband Andrew Frankel “through a friend,” according to People. Frankel is the co-president of Stuart Frankel & Co., “a Wall Street institutional brokerage firm,” a source told the magazine.

The “Blue Bloods” actress and the successful businessman got married on October 17, 2015, at Wölffer Estate Vineyards in Sagaponack, New York. “They wanted a cool vibe and great energy,” their wedding planners told People. “They really wanted the night to feel more like a large family dinner party than a wedding. It was all about simplicity and ease.” Hopefully the couple is maintaining that vibe, especially with their blended family of boys: Moynahan’s young son, Jack, with ex Tom Brady, and Frankel’s three sons.

“Blue Bloods” star and New Kids on the Block member Donnie Wahlberg met his wife, Jenny McCarthy, in a very Hollywood way. The actor told the story in an Instagram post. Sharing a photo of when they first met, he wrote in the caption, “Our first meeting at [‘Watch What Happens Live’] — where Andy [Cohen] implored me to ask Jenny out. I didn’t.” Whoops! Luckily for Wahlberg, McCarthy later had him on her VH1 talk show “The Jenny McCarthy Show.” The interview got pretty steamy, and, according to People, the pair even laid down on the floor to discuss their sexual preferences.

They must have liked what they heard, as the celebrity couple tied the knot in 2014 and formed a blended family with three sons from their previous relationships, as per People. McCarthy is especially grateful for her and Wahlberg’s relationship, as her son, Evan, has autism and she was worried about raising him on her own. “Donnie has been amazing,” she told Fox News. “The fact that I found the love of my life for me, and Evan found a stepdad in his life, I feel like I can’t ask for anything else.”

Steve Schirripa has had many roles, from Bobby on “The Sopranos” to Detective Anthony Abetemarco on “Blue Bloods” (via IMDb). But some might argue that his favorite role of all time is that of “husband.” The Brooklyn native loves his wife, Laura, and their two daughters, Bria and Ciara, as noted by The New York Times, and even credits his wife as the reason why he booked his famous role on “The Sopranos.” “My wife was the one that pushed me,” Schirripa told Esquire. “She said, ‘You’re only happy when you’re doing this, go back.’ Because I didn’t want to spend the money to put myself up and fly myself out. But I did it and luckily it all worked out.”

And work out it did. As per The New York Times, Schirripa and his wife are now living their best lives in Manhattan. When he’s not filming new episodes of “Blue Bloods,” they spend their Sundays in the most New York ways, from going on long walks and reading the paper to grabbing lunch at beloved local eateries.

Eddie Janko, Vanessa Ray’s character on “Blue Bloods,” found true love in her partner, Jamie Reagan (via CBS). But Ray found happily ever after in real life with musician Landon Beard. According to Hola! magazine, the pair met during a rehearsal and Beard continued to sweep her off her feet when he romantically proposed in 2015. “He convinced me to go for a walk to one of our favorite spots — Pier 84 — on the Hudson River in the freezing cold,” the “Pretty Little Liars” actress told the publication. “I could feel his heart pounding even through the many layers of clothing we had on out there,” she noted, adding, “He pulled out the ring, we cried.”

Ray and Beard got married later that year at Condor Nest Ranch in Pala, California, as reported by E! News. A source described their wedding as an “intimate and relaxed event with an eclectic, boho feel,” and told the publication that their wedding ceremony began with a group singalong complete with shakers and tambourines.

Len Cariou has had some luck with the ladies. The “Blue Bloods” actor was in a relationship with actress Lauren Bacall back when they starred on Broadway in “Applause” (via The Washington Post). Cariou himself spoke about in an interview with CBS2, saying simply, “Well, we became lovers when we were doing the show.” Cariou was also involved with Glenn Close in the early ’80s, and the two shared a place together in Chelsea, as per The New York Times.

Cariou eventually settled down with his now-wife, a writer named Heather Summerhayes. According to an interview Summerhayes did with Ask Wendy, the couple have a house in New Jersey with stunning views of Manhattan in which they enjoy a quiet life. “After writing, I do errands, catch up on email, make dinner and enjoy my husband’s company,” she said. “We eat out with friends once or twice a week. We love throwing dinner parties when we’re home. And we have a few TV shows that are our guilty pleasures.”

Robert Clohessy, who plays Sid Gormley on “Blue Bloods,” wasn’t looking for love when he met his wife. He was just looking for a place to live. According to Main Street Magazine, Clohessy had to move to Los Angeles at the last minute after being cast as a recurring character on “Hill Street Blues.” Lucky for him, his agent at the time was also representing a young actress who was looking for a renter: Catherine Erhardt. The two quickly hit it off and married later that year.

Clohessy and Erhardt stayed in Los Angeles for a while, having two sons, Myles and Byron, and later moving to the East Coast. As Myles told The Register Citizen, the boys had a “fairly typical classic country upbringing” in West Cornwall, Connecticut, but they soon joined the family business: the entertainment business. And, according to their IMDb pages, both Myles and Byron appeared in “Blue Bloods.”

Abigail Hawk and her husband “do everything themselves”

Abigail Hawk plays Abigail Baker on “Blue Bloods.” And the actress and her character don’t just have the same name — both are also happily married. In real life, Hawk is married to Bryan Spies, who, according to Starry Magazine, is a first responder. The actress and her hubby share a pretty “normal” life, despite her acting success. “I’m a mom, I’m a wife, I’m a daughter and I have dogs who poop on the floor and chew up my shoes,” Hawk told Starry Magazine. “We don’t have a nanny. My husband and I do everything ourselves.” Romantic, right?

It is romantic, especially since Hawk and Spies appear to still be madly in love. Hawk wrote a gushing Facebook post for her husband’s 42nd birthday in April 2021, thanking him for helping out around the house and for being “handy, handsy, [and] handsome.” She also calls him her “best friend” and the kind of man who “always finds the silver lining” and “like a prize truffle pig, he will always uncover hidden double-stuf Oreos.” She finished the post with: “He’s the best of the best, and I am his.”

Gregory Jbara, aka NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Public Information Garrett Moore on “Blue Bloods,” is married to Julie Jbara, and he seems head over heels. Need proof? After winning the Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in “Billy Elliot: The Musical” in 2009, he brought her up on the stage at Radio City Music Hall while he delivered his acceptance speech. When Broadway Buzz asked him about his favorite memory of that night, he responded, “Having my wife Julie at my side.”

Julie Jbara has her own career in BodyTalk therapy, a “holistic approach to healing that draws upon the practices of kinesiology, yoga and psychology, as well as Western Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda,” according to her profile on the Oasis Healing Center website. According to the actor’s personal website, he, Julie, and their two sons, Aidan and Zachary, live in Los Angeles.

This Is Bridget Moynahan’s Favorite Part Of Filming Blue Bloods

You’d think after starring on the show for over a decade, Bridget Moynahan’s favorite part of filming Blue Bloods would be a dramatic scene involving her character, Erin Reagan. Well, that’s certainly not the case. Forget about the time Erin got shot or when she was kidnapped — for Moynahan, the thing she looks forward to most is the family dinners.

“It’s the one day we all are able to get together in the same room and catch up on each other’s lives,” the actor told E! Online. She isn’t the only Blue Bloods cast member to enjoy these scenes.

Co-star Tom Selleck also enjoys the bond they share around the dinner table. “Sometimes it’s hard for the director’s to get us to concentrate,” he said in an interview with People. “We do the work, and we do it well, but we’re also screwing around and kidding each other and catching up. What we have is truly a blessing.”

This camaraderie has had to change somewhat during filming for the 11th season. Social distancing measures have been put in place due to the pandemic, meaning those in-between scene catchups have had to stop for the time being. Moynahan has noticed that the “verbal connection, that creative connection” has been lost somewhat because of masks and not being able to sit close to one another when the camera stops (via New Beauty).

Bridget Moynahan would love to be a part of the Sex and the City reboot

“We do feel a little more removed, but I think everyone on set is just so thankful that we’ve been able to go back to work and create something,” she told New Beauty. “A lot of productions didn’t make it back, so we feel fortunate in that way.”

For the moment, it seems that Bridget Moynahan is only working on Blue Bloods, according to her IMDb. However, she’s more than ready to return to Sex and the City when it comes back for its reboot. Moynahan played Mr. Big’s wife, Natasha, a role that she feels helped launch her career. “People do ask if Natasha is coming back. I really don’t know. I haven’t heard anything about that,” she told New Beauty. “It’s definitely that show that just keeps giving; everyone gets re-excited every couple of years by it because something new comes out with it. For me, that’s a gift that keeps giving. It’s always nice to go back and have the energy around that show, which really was one of the first projects I did. It really was the jump-start of my career. I’ve always felt really great about that.”

Hopefully, they find a way to integrate that character back into the reboot, because Bridget Moynahan seems like she’s totally down to revisit Natasha.

Bridget Moynahan’s Real Morning Routine Might Surprise You

Blue Bloods’ Bridget Moynahan is a natural beauty. But you would think she has a lengthy morning routine to look the way she does everyday, right? Wrong. The model turned actor has a very simple morning routine that you’re not going to believe. Speaking to New Beauty, she revealed, “I pretty much get ready faster than the majority of men that I know.” She continued, “I wash my face, put on sunblock, put on light makeup and head out the door,” adding, “I mean, I don’t make an event out of it.”

According to Bridget, it all comes down to creating habits, particularly healthy ones. “I do have a lot of them,” she told SELF. “I wish I could say my healthiest habit was drinking hot water and lemon in the morning, but like I said, I chase it with an espresso.” And she has one morning treat — a strawberry banana smoothie.

Bridget Moynahan’s other healthy habits involve staying active, eating well, and not skimping on sleep. “I run, play tennis and ride my bike all over New York City,” she told Los Angeles Times. “For my core I do Pilates. I have tried yoga, but my joints are incredibly loose so it’s too easy for me to get injured doing it,” she admitted, adding, “Growing up I played sports year-round.” She also swears by napping. “I like to nap,” she revealed to US Weekly. “I think that’s a really good health habit. Rest really helps you in many ways.”

And if you think about it, her entire daily routine is about putting her health first. “If you’re healthy all around, you’ll feel better, and if you feel better, you’ll have a more positive outlook,” Bridget told US Weekly. “It’s all connected.” And we couldn’t agree more!

The One Fashion Item Bridget Moynahan Can’t Live Without

Actress and model Bridget Moynahan, best known for role in CBS’ Blue Bloods, is a true beauty icon. Moynahan started modeling at a young age, and ever since she’s embodied the latest trends in fashion, makeup, and skincare. “One line I love is Tammy Fender. It’s my religion,” she revealed in an interview with New Beauty, where she also praised natural beauty products. Moynahan also came under the spotlight after marrying football star Tom Brady and giving birth to their son some months after their split in 2006 (via Pop Culture).

While being a single mom can be challenging, Moynahan went about it with resilience — and making sure that her well-being was a priority. “You really have to weigh out all the pros and cons [of having a child] and how it will fit into your life professionally, spiritually, and emotionally, she said in a 2008 interview with Harper’s Bazaar. “Doing it [raising a kid] on your own, when it wasn’t expected, comes with a lot of fears and anxieties. But I felt 100 percent that I could do this.”

Back in the early 2010s, being a mom of a little kid impacted her fashion style, as she mentioned in an interview with Oprah magazine. “I can’t run around after a kid in a pair of Christian Louboutins,” she said. “On the positive side, that makes me really want to get dressed when I go out!” Being a mother shouldn’t stop you from being playful with your clothes, and Bridget Moynahan is a living proof of that as she has mastered the art of wearing comfortable, yet fashionable, outfits.

In an interview with E!, Moynahan shared the fashion item she can’t live without. “I love a crisp white T-shirt that you can throw on with anything,” she said. Moynahan also shared that taking care of her skin is a priority for her. “[A] cool hat is a fashion and beauty must-have, because you’re taking care of your skin and you still look cute.”

How Bridget Moynahan Really Feels About Tom Brady’s Big Win

Bridget Moynahan and Tom Brady split in 2006, but that’s not stopping the actress from celebrating the news that her ex is headed to the Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

On Sunday, January 24, 2021, the Buccaneers defeated the Green Bay Packers in a 31-26 victory. On hand at Lambeau Field in Wisconsin to witness his dad’s big win was 13-year-old John Edward “Jack” Moynahan, who was born nearly a year after the pair ended their relationship (via Page Six).

In an Instagram post on Sunday evening, Moynahan congratulated her ex — who will be making his 10th trip to the Super Bowl in February. The actress posted a photo of Brady on her TV screen after the game. “Could not be more proud,” she wrote in the caption. “@tombrady said he would do it and he did. Congratulations @buccaneers.”

Prior to the game, Brady’s wife, Gisele Bündchen, shared an Instagram post of herself and the couple’s two children cheering him on at home.

Jack, 13, lives full-time with Moynahan, and Brady resides with Bündchen and their two children, Benjamin, 11, and Vivian, 8 (via US Weekly).

However, father and son appear to have a close relationship. According to US Weekly, location played a huge role when Brady decided to play for the Buccaneers last year. Because Jack lives in New York City with Moynahan, Florida was appealing due to its proximity.

As People reported in December, Jack also shares his dad’s affinity for football and they enjoy playing together — but Brady has no plans to pressure his son into a football career.

“I would never want for them to be ‘Tom Brady’s son’ playing football. I don’t like that at all,” Brady told Howard Stern (via USA Today). “But from a team, camaraderie, discipline, I think there’s something about contact sports that teaches you a lot about discipline, respect, mutual respect for your opponent that you don’t get in non-contact sports.”

The Truth About Tom Brady And Gisele’s Insanely Glamorous Life

There is no such thing as the perfect couple. It just doesn’t exist. But if you were to make a list of couples who seem nearly perfect, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen would likely be near the top. One is quite possibly the greatest NFL player of all time. The other was the world’s highest-paid model from 2002 to 2017. Both have Hollywood good looks, global fame, well-documented wealth and unimaginable success, in addition to what appears to be a loving relationship and family. What more could you possibly want as a couple?

It’s no surprise these two are living a life of luxury. They put it out there on social media accounts for the world to see, from the lavish outfits and exotic vacations to boat trips and romantic gifts. And yet, there are certain aspects about their luxurious lifestyle that might surprise you. Here’s the truth about Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s insanely glamorous life.

Tom Brady’s proposal prank
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen

Brady popped the question in romantic, but not stuffy, fashion. The Patriots star — who met Bundchen through a friend in 2006 — let her know her apartment was flooding. As you would expect, Bundchen immediately rushed back home to salvage whatever she could and assess the damage, only to realize she had been misled. “When I got there, the whole apartment had candles and rose petals everywhere,” Bundchen told Vogue. Hey, you can’t say Brady doesn’t have a sense of humor.

Next thing you know the prankster is on one knee and Bundchen is scolding him for it. But not because he had tricked her into thinking her apartment was soaking in water. No, she was worried about his knee. “He just had surgery and had three staph infections,” Bundchen said in the Vogue interview. “I’m like ‘What are you doing?’ He’s like ‘I got to go on my knees.’ I’m like ‘No, no, no. Get up. Please.'” Even in a moment like that, she was thinking about Brady’s health. What a gal!

For such a high profile couple, Brady and Bundchen kept things pretty low key on their wedding day — make that extremely low key. Rather than spend months planning their special day and inviting 200-plus guests, Brady told GQ that they put their wedding together in around 10 days and only invited immediate family. That’s right. No fellow supermodels. No fellow football players.

The wedding took place at the Santa Monica Catholic Church in California only a month after they got engaged in 2009, according to Brides. The reception, if you want to call it that, was held at their home. The menu? “We went back to the house and I barbecued aged New York strips. We had champagne, a cake, some ice cream. It was a great night,” Brady told GQ, adding that there is “really something special about just having our parents there.” See, not every celebrity wedding has to be an over-the-top affair.

There are many benefits to being married to a world-famous supermodel. And, while it’s probably not high on that list for Brady, he has the benefit of dating a fashion expert who can dish out fashion advice when need be. Brady knows this perk all too well. He told People that Bundchen “has her own recommendations, and I certainly listen, because if your wife doesn’t like it, then you should probably move on to something else.”

Not all of Bundchen’s suggestions, however, have been a home run — or should we say a touchdown? Brady told People in a separate interview that it was Bundchen who had picked out his widely-mocked Met Gala outfit in 2018, which earned him comparisons on Twitter to everything from a magician to a James Bond super-villain to a Chinese New Year calendar. Twitter can be so cruel. But in this case, also hilariously spot on.

Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady’s wedding 2.0

If you’re thinking Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s second wedding was the blowout that the first one wasn’t, think again. The wedding took place a few months later at their home in Costa Rica (you didn’t think they only had one home, did you?) and included around 40 guests, according to Brady’s interview with GQ. And just like the first one, the sequel was teammate- and model-free. Extended family only and three friends a piece. Sorry, Bill Belichick. “The thing about it is, the day’s for you,” Brady told GQ. “It’s nothing personal against anybody, but it’s not about them. It’s about what you and your wife need for that day.”

Bundchen revealed in her book, Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life, (via Boston) that she was barefoot during the quickie ceremony — which took place in their open living room — and there was no formal wedding reception. Guests ate Mexican food and drank margaritas in their kitchen and on the lawn. And no, Brady didn’t cook this time. But Bundchen said he did kind of DJ: “Tom had made playlists.”

Gisele Bundchen learned to fly a helicopter

Why simply ride around in a helicopter when you can fly them as well? That’s what Bundchen has been doing ever since she received her helicopter license in 2009. And if that isn’t enough, she earned her license while seven months pregnant, according to her interview with The Late Late Show with James Corden. So much for taking it easy. Bundchen said she enrolled in lessons for a practical (and perhaps fear-induced) reason: “Usually when I take helicopters there is only one pilot. I wonder what happens if something happens to the pilot. So I thought maybe it would be the perfect time to fly helicopters and this is what I did.”

But there seems to be more to the story. The president of Shoreline Aviation told People that Bundchen interest in all things aviation was also due to her role as goodwill ambassador for the UN’s Environment Programme: “She is trying to promote alternative fuel, and she’s going to be very active doing that.”

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen keep a basket of Uggs at home for guests

Family and friends who visit Brady and Bundchen’s lavish mansion don’t leave empty-handed. The couple has so many pairs of UGG slippers thanks to Brady’s endorsement deal with the luxury shoe brand that Bundchen literally gives them away to visitors. “We have a bench when you come in the house, and underneath my wife has a basket full of slippers,” Brady told WWD. “Whenever we have people over, she’s like, ‘Help yourself.'”

It’s kind of like households that grow more tomatoes or cucumbers than they know what to them with them. Except rather than give away veggies to neighbors, Brady and Bundchen are handing out slippers that retail for about $100 per pair. Further proof that it’s good to be related to or friends with Brady and Bundchen. But there may be an ulterior motive to Bundchen’s generosity. Brady told USA Today UGG slippers are “the only shoes I can wear in the house because my wife doesn’t want to let anyone wear shoes in the house.”

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen sold their dream home to a hip-hop legend

The plan was to “plant roots” in Los Angeles, as Brady put it in Architectural Digest. The couple bought a plot of land in Los Angeles’s Brentwood neighborhood in 2008 for a reported $11.75 million and would start from scratch on their future home with the help of architect Richard Landry and interior designer Joan Behnke. Together they constructed the six-bedroom home that includes a garden with apples, peaches, and plums, a stone bridge and — get this — a koi-filled moat. The total bill allegedly came out to $50 million, according to TMZ.

Not long after moving in, the couple surprisingly put the home on the market for $50 million in 2014. The mega-mansion ended up selling for $40 million that same year. The buyer? Hip-hop legend and Beats headphones co-founder Dr. Dre. It was reported that the house was offered furnished, by Dre opted to bring in his own furniture. And that’s not the only change he made. He received permits in 2018 to do some serious excavating under the property. What exactly he has planned remains unclear at the time of publishing.

The man behind Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s diet

Much has been made about Brady’s quirky diet. He eats avocado ice cream — you read that right. And he rarely eats fruits and tomatoes. One of the people behind that heavily plant-based diet is Allen Campbell, who served as Brady and Bundchen’s personal chef and helped Brady write his $200 TB12 Nutrition Manual book. Once the media came calling to ask about Brady’s diet, Campbell saw his profile rise. “I had no idea that was going to happen,” Campbell told Boston Magazine.

It was the perfect opportunity to make a move, and that’s exactly what Campbell did. He gave up his sweet gig with Brady and Bundchen to launch his brand, which includes a food service, Avail, his role as a partner chef at ArtScience restaurant in the Boston-area, and co-writing the book The Game of Eating Smart. And don’t worry, there are no hard feelings with his former employers, Brady and Bundchen. “They were the ones that said, ‘Hey, it’s okay, we see you have these opportunities,'” Campbell said.

What is Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s net worth?

We know Brady and Bundchen are ridiculously wealthy, but exactly how much are they worth combined? And how does their wealth compare to that of other celebrity couples? The general consensus is that their combined net worth is more than half a billion dollars, with Business Insider estimating that number at $560 million — with Brady’s net worth at $180 million and Bundchen at more than double that with a whopping $380 million.

That figure puts Brady and Bundchen ahead of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith ($320 million) and in the same territory as Kimye ($510 million), but still well behind Posh and Becks ($900 million) and Jay Z and Beyonce ($1.35 billion), according to Business Insider. With Bundchen retired from the runway and Brady in the twilight of his NFL career, it remains to be seen if the pair can stay near the top of the list for years to come.

Bundchen is not only worth more than Brady, she’s worth a lot more than Brady. We’re talking more than double. And, yes, a woman making significantly more than her husband might be a big deal to those with outdated views of relationships between men and women, but not Brady. He’s the one who pointed it out in so many words during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

What some might not realize is that Brady could have earned significantly more during his football career, but chose not to. Confused? Brady can explain. “[Teams] can only spend so much,” Brady told Jimmy Kimmel. “And the more one guy gets is less for others. I think for a competitive advantage standpoint, I’d like to get a lot of good players around me.” In other words, Brady chose winning over money.

The main reason he could do that is his wife. “I think the thing I’ve always felt for me in my life, winning has been a priority and my wife makes a lot of money. I’m a little smarter than you think.” He certainly is. The strategy has helped Brady win six Super Bowls.
