(Newser) – Tom Brady has a busy life even if you don’t include answering questions about his ex-girlfriend, kid, wife, and his return to football after a devastating injury. But a perfectly literal statement about his sport sums up his approach to everything else. “The game goes on,” he tells Details. “They line up for the next play, and nothing stops. The game doesn't stop for anything or anybody. It just keeps going.”

The Patriots quarterback is at times reticent about supermodel wife Giselle Bundchen—“It's just not something we discuss with anybody,” he says of her rumored pregnancy. “It'll be obvious when it happens”—and effusive. “This friend told me he knew a girl version of me,” he says of their first meeting. And he’s downright philosophical about his failed relationship with baby mama Bridget Moynahan. “That's not how you envisioned your life, that's not how you envisioned having children,” he says. “But it happens.”
