Kin deny Bundchen-Brady engagement

Tom Brady's father denies the New England Patriots quarterback got engaged to Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen during the Christmas holiday.

TMZ reported the celebrity couple's alleged engagement last week and E! News subsequently said it had confirmed that Brady proposed to Bundchen and she accepted.

However, Tom Brady Sr. told The Boston Globe the reports are rumor, rumor, rumor.

We don't know a thing about it, Brady's father added. Nobody told me. We talked to him and there's nothing to say.

Bundchen's twin sister, Patricia, also told People magazine via e-mail that the story is not true.

The magazine said the model's publicist declined to comment on the report.
