NFL star Tom Brady is doing what he can to keep in touch with his son Jack, but video chatting is not the same as physical contact - and the social isolation has him "missing" his son.
On Tuesday, Tom Brady shared a sweet snap taken during a video chat with his 12-year-old son Jack as they all follow social distancing regulations.
The football player shares Jack with his ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan, and the boy is staying with his mom in self-isolation amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Over a smiling picture of the father-and-son duo, Tom wrote, "Missing my boy."
Even though Tom can't be with Jack, for the time being, he is with his wife Gisele Bündchen and their two children, 7-year-olds Vivian and Benjamin.
Just last week, Gisele posted a video taken with the two youngsters as they all sang "Count on Me" by Bruno Mars together while in Costa Rica.
With Tom leaving Boston and the New England Patriots, Gisele also paid tribute to her and Tom's time spent in Boston last week.
In a touching message on social media, Gisele said that they will always keep the "wonderful memories" made in Boston close to their hearts and added:
"Our kids were born and raised there and we made special friendships to last a lifetime. I’ll miss our friends, the beautiful change of seasons."
At the end of her tribute, Gisele thanked everyone who supported them throughout his two decades as a Patriot. Going forward, Tom announced that his football career would continue "elsewhere."
Heading to Florida, Tom signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and thanked them on social media for allowing him to do what he loves.
In the meantime, Tom is committed to social distancing while the number of confirmed cases in the US continues to climb.
According to a New York Times database, the total climbed to 214,461 cases as of Thursday, while the death toll rose to 4,841 in the US. Globally, the number of confirmed cases jumped to 946,234 with the number of deaths at 47, 858.
Relatedly, NFL agent Buddy Baker suffered a tragic loss due to the coronavirus pandemic. Sharing the news on social media, Buddy said that both his parents passed away due to complications from the virus.
Buddy's parents both passed away on Sunday, within six minutes of each other, and he hopes by sharing his story that it will make others more vigilant in keeping to social distancing regulations.
