Tom Brady is keeping his kids close post-Super Bowl LV.
The 43-year-old, in his first season as quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after leaving the New England Patriots, scored another Super Bowl victory on Sunday. Now with his seventh Super Bowl ring, he was spotted hugging and celebrating his kids after the game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Brady shares son Benjamin Rein, 11, and daughter Vivian Lake, 8, with wife Gisele Bündchen, and he's also dad to 13-year-old son John "Jack" Edward, whom he shares with ex Bridget Moynahan.
Vivian was seen giving her father a kiss on the cheek as the Buccaneers celebrated their 31-9 victory over Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. After the game, Brady was named Super Bowl LV MVP, and now has the seventh Super Bowl ring of his career.
"It'll be nice to celebrate with them," Brady said of his children while on the podium to accept the MVP honor.
Bündchen posted a video of Vivian, Benjamin and Jack to her Instagram Story as well, which showed them waiting for an elevator in the stadium as Rob Gronkowski — Brady's longtime teammate — celebrated the victory on a television screen near them. Both Benjamin and Jack wore matching Brady No. 12 jerseys.

A source told PEOPLE last month that Jack "loves football" and the father-son duo are known to practice the sport together. "Tom and Jack are super tight," the source said. "He loves football. Tom's very active with him. He's always spotted out with him. Parents have seen him playing football in the schoolyard with Jack and his classmates, pre-COVID."
During an interview with Howard Stern in April, Brady opened up about whether he wants his sons to follow in his footsteps on the football field.
"I would never want for them to be 'Tom Brady's son' playing football. I don't like that at all," he said at the time, per USA Today. "But from a team, camaraderie, discipline, I think there's something about contact sports that teaches you a lot about discipline, respect, mutual respect for your opponent that you don't get in non-contact sports."

Brady's game on Sunday was his 10th Super Bowl appearance, and he told reporters earlier this week that retirement isn't on his mind at the moment. "Yeah, definitely," Brady said when asked if he would play past age 45. "It's a physical sport and the perspective I have on that is — you never know."
"You never know when that moment is, just because it's a contact sport and there's a lot of training that goes into it," he added. "And again, it has to be 100 percent commitment from myself to keep doing it. … I think I'll know when it's time. I can never go into this game half-ass."
