Brady's comments came a day after CSN New England reported that Galynn has been battling health issues for the past 18 months. According to the news outlet, Galynn's health has improved but continues to be a concern for the family.

The athlete's wife, Gisele Bündchen, and their 4-year-old daughter, Vivian, are also in town for big game on Sunday, February 5, in which Brady will attempt to set an all-time record of five Super Bowl quarterback wins. The supermodel, 36, shared a photo of Vivian sitting by the field while wearing a white "Brady's Little Ladies" jersey on Sunday morning. "Game day! #superbowl #daddyslittlegirl," Bündchen captioned the post.

The Brazilian beauty later posted a picture of herself, Galynn and a group of friends in "Brady's Ladies" jerseys. "We are ready! Let's go @tombrady !! Let's go Pats!!!" she wrote.
