Playing EXCLUSIVE: Tom Brady Gushes Over Gisele Bundchen: 'She's My Best Friend'

Despite all the rumors, Tom Brady couldn't seem more in love with his wife of six years, supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

ET caught up with the 38-year-old quarterback in New York City on Tuesday night, when he was announced as Tag Heuer's new brand ambassador. The stylish athlete chatted about how he's been able to maintain such a strong relationship with the gorgeous 35-year-old Gisele, despite their busy schedules.

"She's my best friend," Brady gushed. "We spend as much time as we can together, and you know, it's a busy life we have and we have three kids."

"It's busy schedules busy for me, [but] she still works a lot so don't let that retirement fool you," he joked, referring to Gisele walking her last runway in April. "She works more than any retired person I know."

But it's Gisele's work as a mother to their children -- 6-year-old Benjamin, 2-year-old Vivian, and Brady's 8-year-old son John from his previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan -- that impresses him the most.

"That is a tough job because it is a lot of work, and you know, when I'm home with the kids it's exhausting," Brady admitted. "I can't wait to get back to work. 'Oh my God,' I say. I need a break."

"Going back to a place where people actually listen to me, and you know, my 2-year-old old girl, she won't listen to a word I say," he added, clearly in more control on the field than he is at home. "I gotta get back to work and tell these 300-pounders what to do and they actually listen."

Despite any exhaustion he may experience from pulling double duty as a father and quarterback during the season, Brady does happily make his kids his number one priority.  "They're just the biggest blessing in my life," he said. "Not a day goes by that you don't laugh or smile at something that they do."

While he may be a doting dad and dedicated husband, don't plan on Brady retiring anytime soon. Although he revealed to ET that he told Gisele almost a decade ago that his football days would be over soon, Brady said he still has another decade in him.

"I don't have any plans to give it up, although [Gisele] told me 10 years ago when I met her, I said, '10 years from now I'm going to be done playing,'" he shared. "And we've been together almost nine years now, and I still say, 'Oh I got 10 more years left,' so the time never changes. I think I just love it that much."

In September, a source told ET that Brady's intense focus on football causes the genetically-blessed couple to "go through a rocky point" every fall.

"When football season starts, he only thinks about football and the family takes a backseat," the source said. "Gisele likes everything to be done her way, and on her timeline."

Still, Gisele appears to be 100 percent supportive of her Super Bowl champ husband on the field. In September, she excitedly cheered on the New England Patriots during the NFL season opener at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
