New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen asked him to retire after he won his fifth Super Bowl title. His response: 'Too bad, babe. I’m having too much fun right now.'

Brady led an improbable comeback in Super Bowl LI, helping the Patriots overcome a 25-point lead to the Atlanta Falcons in route to a 34–28 victory in overtime.

“If it was up to my wife, she would have me retire today. She told me that last night three times,” Brady to SiriusXM NFL Radio. “And I said, ‘Too bad, babe, I’m having too much fun right now.’ You know, I feel like I can still do it. If you love what you do and you’re capable of doing it, then I might be so bored if I wasn’t going out there knowing that I could still do it. So I’m going to work hard to be ready to go, and I still plan on playing for a long time.”

Brady will turn 40 in August and is coming off a season where he threw for 3,554 yards and 28 touchdowns.
