Tom Brady officially announced his retirement from the National Football League on Tuesday, February 1, 2022. Brady, arguably the greatest NFL quarterback of all time, hinted at the reason for his retirement on social media.

The 44-year-old wrote, "I have loved my NFL career, and now it is time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention. I've done a lot of reflecting the past week and have asked myself difficult questions." Brady fans have taken to Twitter to speculate that his model wife Gisele is the one pulling his strings when it comes to his retirement.

One fan wrote, "Gisele breaking our hearts", while another tweeted, "Gisele won" alongside a heartbreak emoji. Another fan, taking a sarcastic dig at Brady's wife, tweeted," Gisele said, 'it's time'". A less subtle user wrote, "I hate you Gisele." Someone else added, "I’m gonna say it. I’ve never been a Gisele fan. I’m sorry." One sarcastic user joked, "Breaking: Gisele remains primary breadwinner." Another user took a sarcastic dig at the model saying, "Gisele Bundchen: 'Hey Adam, yeah it's Tom, Tom Brady. I am retiring. Please do not call me. Thanks.'"

Earlier this month, Brady spoke on SiriusXM's Let's Go! podcast with hosts Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray and said, "I think right now it's just a time to spend some time with my family and spend some time with, you know, my kids. Talking about his wife and kids, he said, "She deserves [to get] what she needs from me as a husband and my kids deserve what they need from me as a dad." 

In 2020, in an interview on 'The Howard Stern Show', Brady said his wife started questioning him about when he would start doing more around the house and be more involved in their children's lives. "She's sitting there going, 'Well, when are you going to do things for the house? When are you going to take the kids to school and do that?'", he said. "And that was a big part of our marriage. I had to, like, check myself. Because she's like, 'I have goals and dreams too.'"
