He's a big family man.
Though his daughter, Vivian, seems to hold a special place in his heart.Entertainment Tonight, Brady admitted that his little girl "owns his life." "I cannot say no to anything," Brady explained. "Whatever she tells her dad to do, that's what I do. That's just the way it goes."
Vivian loves to get involved in her dad's sport.

They were preparing to jump into the water.Brady can be heard asking Vivian whether she’s ready to take the leap off the small ledge into a waterfall pool below; she quietly responds with a nod and a "yes."
The little girl seemed nervous.And she remained clutching onto her dad's hand as they counted down from 3, ready to leap from the edge.
But, as Brady jumped, Vivian hesitated...Causing the footballer to roughly drag her down into the pool with him. Brady saw the funny side of her fall, captioning the video: "If Vivi is going to be an Olympic champion one day, it probably won’t be in synchronized diving. Daddy always gives her a 10 though!"
