New dad Tom Brady may be in the thick of the football season, but he's looking forward to spending more time with his three-month-old son, John, come February.
"I'm very blessed that he's healthy, and I look forward to spending as much time with him as I can when the season's over," Brady said in a post-baby-visit interview this week with Boston's Channel 5 "Patriots All Access" show.
Brady traveled to the West Coast last week – a bye for the 9-0 New England Patriots – to visit with his baby son. It was the first time Brady had seen John since his birth in August. The baby is Brady's first, with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan.
The tyke is doing "great" and is "truly a joy," Brady told the show.
