Tom Brady will likely be spending some time away from work in the near future. The second child of Brady and his wife, Gisele Bundchen is due any day.
Their first child, Benjamin, was born on December 8, 2009.
The Patriots are currently preparing for a showdown with the Houston Texans next Monday night.
Brady said after Sunday's win over the Dolphins that the couple doesn't know whether they're having a boy or girl.
In 2009, Brady missed a Thursday practice two days after his son was born.
But Brady did make it into work on December 9. Despite working on very little sleep and battling a snowstorm that caused teammates Adalius Thomas, Randy Moss, Derrick Burgess and Gary Guyton to be late and sent home, Brady was at the Patriots facility in the hours after his son's arrival.
Brady also has a 5-year-old son, John, with actress Bridget Moynahan.
