Sunday night’s game was a family affair for the Brady clan, and it couldn’t have turned out any better.
Tom Brady led the New England Patriots to a 23-7 win over the Atlanta Falcons at Gillette Stadium, and both of his parents, Galynn and Tom Sr., were on hand to witness the victory.
Galynn’s presence was especially meaningful. Brady’s mother endured a difficult battle with breast cancer in 2016 and was honored on the field before the game as part of the NFL?s “Crucial Catch” initiative.
Brady spoke at length Sunday night about how great it was to have his parents there, and on Monday morning, he posted a photo on Instagram of Galynn and Tom Sr. taking the field before the game, as well as a caption expressing his gratitude.

This picture sums up a perfect night for my family and team. I am beyond blessed to have the love and support from my parents. My mom and dad were recognized in the pregame along with other families who have fought tough battles with tough illness. These two are the ultimate warriors who have faced these challenges head on and keep fighting. I am so happy they were there together and I thank all the fans who gave them such a warm welcome. I love them so much and I love you all! ?????
Brady’s wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, also was in attendance, and she posted a touching photo of her and Galynn after the game.
“So proud of this beautiful warrior!” Gisele wrote in the caption. “I love you so much sweet Galynn.”
Brady’s mother has been through a lot over the last year, so we’re glad she got to reunite with her family Sunday night in Foxboro.
