"I think my dad is my hero, because he's someone I look up to every day," he said, calling his a "great example" for his family. "He was always someone who supported me in everything I did," Tom added.

On a 2021 episode of his podcast, Brady called his dad "the most loving, caring, honest man in the world" and said, "without him, there's no way I'd be in the position that I'm in."

"He's there to support me, win or lose. He's been on the field coming off year in, year out. And my biggest supporter," Brady added of his father at the time.

Brady's tribute to his parents' 55th anniversary comes just after the former quarterback opened up about his own experience becoming a father (Brady shares son Jack, 16, with ex Bridget Moynahan and son Benjamin, 14, and daughter Vivian, 11, with ex Gisele Bündchen) during an appearance on DeepCut with VicBlends.

"You get better as a parent, I think, because you know when you’re a young parent, you don’t really know what you’re doing. You’re winging it. You’re trying to wing it," Brady said.

"So I think when you become a parent, you’re trying new things for the first time, you’re going through all these things for the first time so you don’t exactly know always the right thing to say."

Brady continued, "As you go, you get a little bit better at it, you get a little more understanding of it and you try to just continue to kind of refresh your skills as a parent."
