Tom Brady, who appreciates style, caused more than a few eyebrows to raise when he sported a pair of booty shorts this week printed with photos of his children.
The New England Patriots quarterback shared a shot of himself to Instagram Wedsnesday wearing a gray hoodie and the controversial shorts on an empty beach with a football, evidently training for the upcoming season.
“The More REAL You Get… The More UNREAL It Gets” – Muhammad Ali,” the 40-year-old captioned the pic.

After Instagram commentators cooled down from chastising the five-time Super Bowl winner for falsely attributing the quote to the legendary boxer instead of John Lennon, they narrowed in on the meaning of the skintight shorts.
With Brady’s muscular thighs posed at an angle in the image, the bottoms appear to feature a photo of his son John, 10, or Benjamin, 8. It is not clear from the photo if his daughter, Vivian, 5, is also pictured on the shorts.
Some social media commentators praised #12’s unique look, while others were left confused.
“New career: underwear model!” one supporter applauded on Instagram.
“Tommy u know I love u but what r those,” another chimed in.
Naturally, reactions from the Twitterverse were even more heated.
Fans heaped praise on Brady’s shorts, describing them as “Absolutely fire” and “European,” noting that they “Look Much better on him than they would on any other man.”

“Is Tom Brady wearing booty shorts with his kids on them please don’t confirm,” a critic clapped, while another dubbed them as “just plain wrong.”
One fashion guru who has yet to publically chime in on the look is Brady’s supermodel wife of nine years, Gisele Bündchen.
