Among all the celebrities showing up at the 2017 Kentucky Derby, it would appear that one of the most famous faces, Tom Brady, is without his righthand lady. Brady's wife, Gisele Bündchen, did not attend the Kentucky Derby, but she was present for some derby hijinks while making an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Bündchen didn't state why she didn't tag along for the Kentucky Derby, but it sure looked like she had fun with the Jimmy Fallon substitute, which involved a lot of adorable golden retriever puppies.
On Friday night's episode of Jimmy Fallon, Bündchen was one of the comedian-turn-talk show host's guests. Inspired by Fallon's very precious bit where he used golden retriever puppies to predict the 2017 Kentucky Derby winner (it's supposed to be McCracken, by the way), Bündchen told Fallon during her interview that she and Brady love to bring home rescue puppies for the family.
Of course, it elicited some laughs, but now I'm actually wondering if Brady might actually bring home a puppy from Louisville, Kentucky. Brady went to the 2017 Kentucky Derby with some of his fellow teammates, imaginably leaving Bündchen at home for the weekend. The boys trip has, thus far, looked like a rip-roaring good time including a who's-who of famous New England Patriots players.
According to TMZ, Brady traveled with teammates Julian Edelman, Jimmy Garoppolo, and Jacoby Brissett to Louisville via private jet for the fun but classy guy's weekend. Once there, the fellas reportedly met up with fellow football pro Aaron Rodgers. Brady was even spotted with baseball player David Ortiz in what looked like a VIP or elite section of the Churchill Downs on Saturday ahead of the big race.
Watch out, Churchill Downs. It looks like Brady came to party hard and maybe, just maybe, he'll bring home a puppy for Bündchen, too.
