There are plenty of hugs and kisses to go around in the Bundchen-Brady household.

During a Carine Roitfeld-styled, Mario Testino-photographed shoot with VMAN (their fall issue hits stands August 23), Tom Brady opens up about not being afraid to show off his softer side — especially when he’s hanging out at home with wife Gisele Bundchen and his sons, Jack (with ex-Bridget Moynahan) and Benjamin.

Brady says he grew up in “an environment where people weren’t afraid to express how they really felt or express their emotions,” he tells the mag. “I’m very blessed to be able to do that because with my two boys — I kiss them a thousand times a day. My wife and I are very affectionate, it’s just part of our nature.”

Even though he makes his living in one of the most macho industries there is, “I’m not really concerned with portraying this tough warrior,” he explains. “I mean, that’s part of my job and I take that very seriously. But I don’t have anything to hide and I’m not concerned with what people think.”

Turns out the NFL star, 35, and his supermodel wife will soon have another family member to cover in kisses; as Us Weekly first reported in June, Bundchen is expecting her and Brady’s second child together.

“Yes, she is pregnant,” one source told Us at the time. “[She and Tom] are really happy!”
