Don't believe the holiday engagement rumors swirling around supermodel Gisele Bündchen and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Brady's father, Tom Brady Sr., told The Boston Globe on Friday that reports of his son's engagement were "rumor, rumor, rumor ... We don't know a thing about it. Nobody told me. We talked to him and there's nothing to say."

The Boston Herald reported that the couple strolled down Bean Town's Beacon Street on Friday – and that Bündchen, 28, was without an engagement ring.

Bündchen's twin sister, Patricia, also denied the report, saying in an e-mail that the engagement story – which first surfaced on TMZ – is "not true."

Reached by PEOPLE, Bündchen's rep declined to comment. Stacey James, a spokesman for the Patriots, responded, "I heard the report that he [proposed] on a plane, but I don't think it's true." Still, he added, "Tom keeps his private life private."
