What do you get a six-time Super Bowl champion with a supermodel wife and millions of dollars for his birthday?

Turns out the answer is pretty simple: a new phone.

Former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady turns 43 years old Monday, and once he hits the field for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season, he'll be just the fifth QB in NFL history to take a snap past 43.

Here's how Brady celebrated his first birthday outside New England in over two decades:

What's with the new iPhone reference? Well, Brady inadvertently let slip on his Instagram story this weekend that he's still rocking an iPhone 6.

The iPhone 6 came out in September 2014, back when Brady still was seeking his fourth Super Bowl title and had yet to become entangled in the Deflategate debacle.

There's nothing wrong with keeping the same phone for six years, but when you're a multimillionaire of Brady's stature, you can probably upgrade a bit more often.

Then again, nothing reinforces Brady's status as the NFL's oldest non-kicker like the QB rocking some out-of-date technology.

At least his wife, Gisele Bundchen, still supports him, regardless of what iPhone model he has.
