Tom Brady feels guilty about his fame when it overshadows his children’s accomplishments.

The retired NFL star, 46, has son Benjamin, 14, and daughter Vivian, 11, with his former wife Gisele Bündchen, 43, as well as son Jack, 16, with his 52-year-old ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan.

He confessed about his family life while talking to John Legend on SiriusXM’s "Let’s Go! with Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray": “Whether I’m at a game for my son, and I love doing that, but, you know, a lot of times the attention gets shifted to us.

“I don’t want to take away from their moments, ’cause this is (an) important part of their life and their maturation.”

Brady added he only focuses on his kids when he is with them to alleviate some of the “challenges” his fame brings.

He said: “We try to teach them the right values and so forth.

“But at the same time, I feel like, for me, when I’m out with my kids, I really wanna be with them, you know? And I really make it clear to people, ‘Sorry, I’m just out here enjoying my time with my family.’”

The retired quarterback also revealed he teaches his family their privilege comes at a personal cost.

He added: “The reason we get to go on a lot of fun vacations and you guys go to schools and have people to help (is because) we have to deal with some things that are different than everyone else.
