Gisele Bundchen, the wife of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, was criticized for the words she used to console her two children following her husband’s 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII. After the loss, Brady’s 5-year-old daughter Vivian was spotted crying while saying: “The Eagles won the Super Bowl," per Josh Peters of USA Today. Bundchen then told her daughter: “just this time. Daddy won five times. They never won before. You have to let someone else win sometimes.” The supermodel also told her children that “sometimes you have to let other people win” and “we have to share.

Sharing is caring.”

Bundchen was also seen congratulating every Eagles player she ran into [VIDEO], according to Dan Wetzel of Yahoo! Sports. Wetzel added that Eagles players greeted by Bundchen looked starstruck.

One day after the Super Bowl, Gisele also congratulated the Eagles in an Instagram post, writing, "Congratulations Eagles for winning the Super Bowl, what a game that was!"

Bundchen clarifies statement on Twitter

However, Bundchen’s words to her children did not sit well with Eagles fans, who criticized the supermodel for her pronouncements. The Eagles fans said Bundchen made it look like Brady allowed them to win. In a tweet, Bundchen clarified her comments, saying: "No one “let” anyone win. People win because of their own merit." Bundchen also slammed people who twisted her words to create drama that doesn’t exist.

Brady’s ex-girlfriend, actress Bridget Moynahan, also created a controversy during Super Bowl LII as she rooted for the Eagles and quarterback Nick Foles [VIDEO].

While the game was live, Moynahan tweeted that Foles is having an amazing game. Foles finished the game with 373 passing yards and three touchdowns and caught one touchdown on a trick play en route to bagging the Super Bowl MVP. Brady was also outstanding, tossing for 505 yards and three touchdowns. However, Brady committed a fumble late in the game that cost the team.

Belichick to mentor McDaniels

Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels shocked everyone when he decided to stay with the Patriots rather than accept a head coaching job with the Indianapolis Colts. The move forced McDaniels’ agent, Bob LaMonte, to drop the offensive coordinator from his list of clients. It was reported that the Patriots sweetened McDaniels’ contract and promised him the head coaching job once Bill Belichick retires. According to Mike Reiss of ESPN, Belichick said he will open his world to McDaniels so he can learn everything that he knows about football, particularly roster building and financial issues.
