Before Tom Brady dated Gisele Bundchen, he was in a two year relationship with Bridget Moynahan from 2004-2006. Shortly after the football star started going out with the supermodel they found out that his ex is pregnant. Now for the first time Gisele opens up and talks about that period of her life in a new book called ‘Lessons: My Path To A Meaningful Life.’
“Two months into our relationship, Tom told me his ex-girlfriend was pregnant,” the Brazilian model wrote in her book. “The very next day the news was everywhere, and I felt my world had been turned upside down.”
She admitted that it “wasn’t an easy time” for any of the people involved, but she wanted to make things as easy as possible for Tom and Jack, so they can build their father and son connection. “I wanted to be there for Jack and Tom, and do whatever I could to create stability in their lives, and help them to have a close relationship,” Gisele explained.
Although the news of Jack was a complete shock to Gisele back then, she now credits him for making her “heart expand in ways I didn’t know was possible” and refers to him as her ‘bonus child,’ because he made them realise that they want to have children on their own too. They now have two children that they share – Benjamin, 8, and their daughter, Vivian, 5, and the family is all really close.
Jack and his mom live in Los Angeles, while Gisele and Tom are in Massachusetts, but that doesn’t stop them from being a family. Gisele explained that they will often excitingly FaceTime with Jack after eating dinner to see how he’s doing and to wish him goodnight. The stepmom also revealed that Jack’s learning her native language of Portuguese and admitted his accent is “so cute.”
Back in 2011 Brigette told More Magazine: “I never made a comment about Gisele or Tom publicly, I have a relationship with these people on a daily basis. I’m raising a child, and it’s public. My son has two loving parents and an extended family, whether it’s cousins or stepmothers or boyfriends. My son is surrounded by love.”
“He was there on that day and came in afterwards,” Moynahan told More of Brady’s role in Jack’s delivery. “He certainly wasn’t holding my hand while I pushed.” She mused to the mag, “I don’t think any girl grows up dreaming of being a single mom.” Moynahan has since moved on and been linked to director Joseph McGinty “McG” Nichol. But the trio are often seen hanging out together – if only more families can be like them!
Gisele’s book, Lessons: My Path To A Meaningful Life, was released on Oct. 2.
