Gisele Bündchen is showing some love for Tom Brady!

The 38-year-old supermodel took to Instagram ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl LIII to wish her husband good luck as he and the rest of the New England Patriots take on the Los Angeles Rams. This year marks the Patriots' fifth appearance in the big game since 2011.

In the first of two posts, Bündchen poses with her husband on the football field. Brady's taking a knee, as Bündchen stands behind her man and gives him a hug.

"I got your back! ❤️," she wrote alongside the shot.

Another pic featured the couple's 6-year-old daughter, Vivian, as she stands on the football field with her arms wide open, while wearing her dad's jersey.

"Let’s go papai !!! Let’s go pats !!! 💙❤️✨✨✨✨✨✨," Bündchen captioned the precious photo.

Brady took to social media ahead of the big game too, sharing a video with clips from the last time the Patriots and the Rams faced off in the Super Bowl. The teams played each other in Super Bowl XXXVI -- which capped off the 2001 season -- and saw Brady's team victorious with a 20 to 17 win.

"The bonds between us. The belief in something larger than yourself. Makes a city, a team, a dream, grow. It's never about one person, one play, one game. Win or lose, we do it together," the voice over says. "When you put on your uniform you carry much more than the name on your back and the name on your front. You play for each other. For those who came before you and for those who will come after you."

"When you put on your uniform and you carry the heartbeat of a city, a team, a dream that will live forever. Let's go!" Brady excitedly shouts at the end of the clip.

"Still Here. Never Left," he captioned the video.

Brady and Bündchen  -- who tied the knot back in 2009 and share two kids, Vivian and Benjamin, 9-- are never shy about sharing their love for each other on social media. Last February, on their ninth anniversary, Bündchen called their marriage "a ride."

"I love learning and growing with you. Happy anniversary love of my lifey! Te amo muito! ❤😘," she wrote.

Brady celebrated the occasion too, with a photo of the pair kissing on their wedding day. "Live, Laugh, Love.....and I Love You!" the 41-year-old quarterback wrote. "Feliz Aniversário! Te Amo muito!!❤️💍😍"

For Bündchen's 38th birthday in July, Brady once again shared a photo of the duo kissing. In the pic, Brady and Bündchen are rocking swimsuits while embracing on the beach.

"Happy Birthday! What a great year it has been! We love you so much! Let me count the ways....❤️🎂😎," he wrote.

In an interview with WSJ Magazine in March, Bündchen opened up about how she feels about Brady's football career and any plans he has to retire.

"It's his decision and he knows it," she said. "It wouldn’t be fair any other way. He’s so focused right now. He has a laser focus on just winning and being the best, and I said, 'You know what? This is what you’re doing right now in your life, and you need to feel complete in it, because if I’m the one who comes and says something and then you make a decision based on something that I said' ... he’d resent it."

"I would never in my life, ever [make that decision for him]. I want him to be happy," she added.

Bündchen also spoke about Brady's reaction to his team's defeats, specifically their Super Bowl loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last year, where the Eagles beat the Patriots 41 to 33.

"Believe me, I’ve been with him when he’s losing. Try to be with him after you have lost [Super Bowls]. I mean, I had my fair share, OK?" she said. "As long as he’s happy, he’s going to be a better father, he’s going to be a better husband, and I just want him to be happy."
