Ever wondered how Tom Brady manages to stay injury-free despite the hard hits he takes on the football field? Now we know.

At this point it's clear that Gisele Bündchen is her NFL quarterback husband's biggest cheerleader, and she proved that fact once again by giving her man—who is set to appear in the Super Bowl this weekend—a special piece of jewelry to keep him safe. In a press conference last night, the New England Patriots star gushed over his supermodel wife and talked about the gift.

"I’ve been very blessed to find her. Wonderful woman, wonderful partner. She does everything," Brady told a group of reporters, also adding that Bündchen gave him a good luck necklace to wear under his uniform. "She gave me this (necklace) for protection, and she’d be really happy that I’m wearing it because she doesn’t like anyone hitting me. She always says, 'Throw the ball really fast, really fast.' So that’s what I try to do."

Brady also got very emotional at the event when he was asked who he considers to be his personal hero. "My dad is my hero, because he’s someone I look up to every day," he answered. "He was always someone who supported me in everything I did."

To see the star in action, tune in to Super Bowl LI on Sunday, Feb. 5 at 6:30 p.m. EST on FOX.
