Who are Tom Brady’s sisters?
Tom Brady’s siblings include:
Maureen is the oldest child of the Brady bunch.
Like her brother, she was also a stand-out athlete and was an All-American softball pitcher at Fresno State in the 1990s.
Following graduation, she then decided to peruse a career in nursing.
Maureen currently works at a local hospital in Bakersfield, California.
Despite a high-profile brother, Nancy has tended to stay out of the spotlight over the years.
As a teenager, Nancy was a basketball player and a softball player.
She reportedly works as a Public Health Technical Advisor and has a degree from Boston University.
The youngest of Tom’s sisters is Julie, 47, who often gets called his “twin” – despite there being a three-year age gap.
The two siblings share the same birthday of August 3, although Tom was born in 1977 and Julie in 1974.
While not much information is available on Julie’s personal life, she famously married former Boston Red Sox player Kevin Youkilis in 2012.
Who are Tom Brady’s parents?
Tom is the fourth child of Tom Brady Sr and Galynn.
In January of 2021, his parents revealed their “life and death” battle with coronavirus at the start of the season.
Speaking on ESPN’s “#Greeny,” Brady Sr. opened up about his experience with the virus which left him hospitalized.
He noted that he was forced to miss his son’s first two games of the season, the only football games of his sons that he has ever missed.
“We didn’t even see the first two games of the year,” he said.
“It was the first two games I ever missed of his career because I was sick as a dog and my wife was as sick as a dog.
“We’ve never missed a game at Michigan or New England or wherever.”

Is Tom Brady retiring from the NFL?
ESPN Senior NFL Insider Adam Schefter tweeted January 29, 2022: “Tom Brady is retiring after 22 extraordinary seasons, multiple sources tell @JeffDarlington and me.”
However, Tom Brady Sr. was quick to debunk Adam’s report and denied the rumors of his retirement.
It was not until February 1, 2022, that the NFL star initially announced his retirement in a touching Instagram post.
“I have always believed the sport of football is an ‘all-in’ proposition – if a 100% competitive commitment isn’t there, you won’t succeed, and success is what I love so much about our game,” Brady wrote in an Instagram post at the time.
“There is a physical, mental, and emotional challenge EVERY single day that has allowed me to maximize my highest potential. And I have tried my very best these past 22 years. There are no shortcuts to success on the field or in life.
“This is difficult for me to write, but here it goes: I am not going to make that competitive commitment anymore,” he continued.
“I have loved my NFL career, and now it is time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention.”
He later went on to thank the fans, his teammates and family, alongside his coaches.
However, on March 13, Brady revealed that he would be playing in the 2022 season and not retiring just yet.
“These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands,” he wrote. “That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family.”
Brady revealed that he will be returning for his 23rd season in Tampa for 2022. “Unfinished business LFG.” he concluded.
