Tom Brady allegedly had a not-so-very-fun Christmas because it was his first time being away from his kids.

A source told Life & Style that Brady and his ex-wife, Gisele Bundchen agreed that the kids’ first holiday following their parents’ divorce will be spent with the Brazilian model.

Next year, Brady and Bundchen’s kids will celebrate Christmas with the NFL superstar. But even if this is the case, the holidays still weren’t easy for Brady.

“Gisele had them first, which was hard for him because Tom’s always been with the kids during the holidays,” the source said.

The insider also claimed that Brady and Bundchen made sure that their kids’ Christmas will be very memorable.

“The kids pretty much have everything they need, so it was less about gifts and more about spending quality time with them. Throwing a football around and catching up with them about school and friends was all they wanted,” the source said.

The source also claimed that Brady is only now learning how to juggle his career as a footballer and his life as a single dad.

“Tom doesn’t want to repeat the same mistakes he made in his marriage to Gisele. He’s really trying his best to be present when he has the children and has become a better dad for it,” the source said.

Last month, the same tabloid claimed that Brady and Bundchen called a truce to ensure that their kids will be a wonderful holiday season.

“This is their first Christmas post-divorce and they both want to make it as normal for the kids as possible. If Tom gets time off between then and New Year’s, he may even join them. Gisele is very thoughtful about the time he gets with the children,” the source said.

However, it has now been confirmed that Brady did not spend Christmas or even the New Year with his ex-wife and kids. But next year, the football star will most likely make up for a lost time.

Brady and Bundchen are also doing a wonderful job co-parenting their children. There’s no indication that the exes are feuding, but it’s not also safe to say that they are friends.

For now, they are just maintaining an amicable co-parenting relationship with their kids.
