The Patriots showed their appreciation for Brady on his 40th birthday Thursday by bringing five baby goats to training camp. The adorable creatures were each fitted with a No. 12 jersey.
The team also set up a mammoth "GOAT" sign in his honor.
When asked if the Patriots were doing anything special for Brady's birthday, coach Bill Belichick was quick to add his dry humor.
"Like the parade? Yeah," Belichick said.
The "parade" notwithstanding, Brady was presented with a more heartfelt show of appreciation from supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen on Instagram.
"Over 10 years ago I fell in love with you because of your beautiful and sensitive heart," Bundchen wrote. "I love the sweetness in your essence. Today you are starting a big new chapter and I wish you so much happiness and fulfillment in all aspects of your life."
"Happy birthday my love! Making 40 feel like 20!!! You go @tombrady !!!! Te amo."
Brady also used social media to wish his twin sister, Julie, a happy birthday.
"When you share the same birthday....and also great fashion style! Happy birthday sweet Julie! I love you!" Brady wrote. "Thank you for being the best second oldest sister in the world!"
