Bridget revealed that Jack is very active — which isn’t a surprise considering his dad is NFL quarterback Tom Brady!
Bridget Moynahan appeared recently on the Rachael Ray Show to promote her upcoming movie, Beezus and Ramona, and also her hit new TV show, the CBS drama, Blue Bloods. But when Rachael asked her about being a mom, Bridget, 38, lit up as she talked about her 3-year-old son, John Edward or “Jack” to his family. “He’s a thinker,” she said. “And both his dad and myself were athletes growing up so he’s very active that way.” Jack’s dad, if you don’t know, is star NFL quarterback Tom Brady.
Tom, 32, and Bridget had dated for several years but broke up late in 2006, right before Bridget learned she was pregnant with Tom’s child. Tom was soon dating Gisele Bundchen, 29, whom he later married and with whom he has another son, 10-month-old Benjamin. Gisele struck up a controversy with Bridget in April, 2009, when she referred to Jack, as her own, saying, “to me it’s not like because somebody else delivered him, that’s not my child.” Bridget was hurt by this, with a friend commenting, “For Jack’s sake, she wanted him to be comfortable with Gisele. Bridget tried to give her the benefit of the doubt. But that goodwill has taken a hit. She’s like, ‘Did she really say that?’”
But her visit with Rachael Ray had none of that unpleasantness, as Bridget focused on how much she loves motherhood. “It’s just a joy, he’s so much fun. He’s three, so he’s got his own little personality.”
