“I’m blessed to find this life partner that we all kind of seek at different times in our life,” the New England Patriots quarterback told Access Hollywood in May 2016. “We found each other at the right time. We’ve been through a lot of ups and downs together, and in so many ways, that’s kind of built our relationship so strong.”
While Brady noted the pair, who wed in 2009, have faced “challenges,” he added that they are always there for each other.
“It’s great to have that rock that you can always lean on that can support you in different ways that you need to,” he explained at the time.
