Count Gisele Bundchen as excited while her husband, Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady, connect for two touchdowns with old friend Rob Gronkowski.
Brady and Gronkowski, who have a long history of working together with the New England Patriots, teamed up for two touchdowns in the first half of Super Bowl LV.
Nearing halftime, their handiwork put the host Buccaneers up 21-6 over the Kansas City Chiefs at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.
Gisele Bundchen shares her happiness over watching the Brady-Gronk combo work well on Twitter.
Their two touchdowns actually put Brady and Gronkowski in the NFL record books.
Brady hit Gronkowski for an 8-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter. That was the 13th time Brady and Gronkowski have connected for touchdown passes in the postseason, breaking the previous record held by Joe Montana and Jerry Rice of the San Francisco 49ers.
In the second quarter, Brady hit his favorite target once again. The Tampa Bay signal-caller found Gronkowski in the back of the end zone for a 17-yard touchdown with 6:05 left in the first half.
Watching the events take place in Tampa gave Gisele Bundchen a lot to cheer about for her husband.
Gronkowski now has 14 postseason touchdown receptions. His first one on Sunday put him in second place for all-time playoff touchdown catches. Rice holds the No. 1 spot with 22 in his Hall of Fame career.
But Gronkowski does join Rice in becoming the only two players to have multiple touchdown receptions in multiple Super Bowls.
As the first half was coming to a close, Brady found wide receiver Antonio Brown for a 1-yard touchdown reception.
