‘Just like his dad!’ NFL legend Tom Brady’s son Jack, 13, proves sport is in the genes as he signs on as a summer ball boy with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tom Brady is arguably the greatest NFL quarterback of all-time, having won his seventh Super Bowl in February last year.
And it appears sport runs in the family, with the 44-year-old’s son Jack, 13, signing on as a summer ball boy with his team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In snaps shared to Tom’s Instagram on Tuesday, the youngster, who Tom shares with ex Bridget Moynahan, looked like a natural as he was captured running across the field with his proud father watching on.

The photos showed Jack dressed in a white T-shirt, black shorts, white sneakers and the team’s cap.
‘Buccaneers got a new ball boy this week! He takes his summer job and every rep very seriously just like his dad,’ Tom captioned the post.
One particular snap saw Tom in his number 12 gear sharing a few words with his son.

Tom also shares Benjamin, 11, and daughter Vivian, eight, with wife Gisele Bündchen, 41.
The NFL megastar credited Brazilian supermodel Gisele for bringing out the best in him during an interview with Michael Strahan on Good Morning America last year.
Referencing their 12th wedding anniversary at the time, Tom said he gives Gisele ‘a lot of credit’ for making their relationship go the distance.
‘She’s the one that, you know, supports the family and, at the end of the day, makes a lot of sacrifices. She brings out the best version of me,’ he said.

During the interview, Tom also talked about keeping his kids ‘grounded’ as they grow up as he and Gisele try to make sure they know they will have to ‘work hard’ in life.
‘Mum and dad’s life is very unique in this world. I don’t want them to take those things for granted,’ he revealed.
‘I want them to make the impact in the world that they’re gonna make. But they’re gonna make it in their way, too.’
Tom and Gisele met in 2006 when a mutual friend set them up on a blind date and married three years later.
Going from strength to strength: ‘She’s the one that, you know, supports the family and, at the end of the day, makes a lot of sacrifices. She brings out the best version of me,’ he said
