Tom Brady has welcomed two new family members into his home just four months after splitting from his ex-wife Gisele Bundchen.

The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback – who retired from the NFL for a second time in February – revealed on Wednesday that he has adopted two adorable cats from the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, an animal shelter that saves "homeless animals' lives in the Tampa Bay Area".

Taking to his Instagram Stories, Tom uploaded a sweet video of his new feline companions rolling around and playing with each other on his bathroom floor.

Hinting that the decision to adopt was not solely his, Tom made reference to his daughter Vivian, ten, who appeared to be the driving force behind the new additions to the family.
