One of the few things that was able to get Tom Brady out of his seat at The Greatest Roast of All Time was Jeff Ross's joke about Robert Kraft’s prostitution charges and when Rob Gronkowski joked about dating one of Tom's sisters. The two are unrelated.

While seemingly everyone knows about Tom’s divorce from Gisele Bündchen and lots of fans know about his relationship with Bridget Moynahan, much less is known about the three women that have been in his life the longest amount of time: his sisters Maureen, Julie, and Nancy.

Who are Tom Brady's sisters? Tom is the youngest of four children.

Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. was born Aug. 3, 1977, to Galynn Patricia (Johnson) and Thomas Brady Sr. Before the GOAT was here, Galynn and Thomas Sr. welcomed first child Maureen in 1970, Julie in 1974, and Nancy in 1976. The youngest of four children and the only boy, Tom was named after his father and shares a birthdate with his big sister Julie.

Just like his siblings, Tom followed in their steps and loved all things sports.

Are the Bradys bad at any sports?

Obviously Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time, but did you know he was also drafted by a Major League Baseball team? That shouldn’t be surprising given his family's athleticism. One of the frequent things Tom shares about his siblings is that they’re better athletes than he is.

Maureen played college softball at Fresno State University and was an All-American pitcher. She was inducted into the San Mateo County Sports Hall of Fame in 1999. Tom was added to that Hall in 2003.

Julie played for the St. Mary’s College women’s soccer team. In addition to playing at a college level, she also married into another sport: baseball. She wed two-time Boston Red Sox World Series Champion Kevin Youkilis in 2012.

Nancy received an athletic scholarship to play softball at the University of California at Berkeley.

The next Brady to become a professional athlete will probably be one of Tom's nieces.

Just like their mom and dad, the Brady siblings have also produced multiple offspring. Ten of these kids — the son and daughters, nieces and nephews of Tom — appeared in a 51st anniversary Instagram post Tom shared on April 19, 2020. Tom wrote, "Happy anniversary Mom and Dad!! 51 years of love and unconditional support! And so many beautiful grandkids to show for it! We ALL love you Sssoooo much!! ❤️❤️❤️"

The next year, on April 21, 2021, Major League Baseball ran a piece called "Better Than Tom? Meet UCLA's Maya Brady," about Tom's niece (she's the daughter of Maureen Brady) and one of the grandkids in the 2020 anniversary photograph. The softball player is currently a member of the UCLA Bruins softball team, the 2023 Pac-12 Player of the Year, a 2023 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year Top 3 Finalist and 2-time NFCA First Team All-American (2023, 2021).
