Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan were in a relationship for almost three years. Bridget Moynahan gave birth to John Edward Thomas Moynahan in August 2007, months after the duo broke up in 2006. Until Brady heard about the news, he was already in a relationship with Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen.

The thought of raising a son alone without a husband was hard to accept for Myonahan at the beginning. In the Harper Bazaar’s issue of July 2008, Blue Blood star broke the silence and said, “Everyone says, ‘You give birth, you go home, and you have this amazing baby, and it’s just beautiful. And I walked in, and I just started sobbing.”

Moynahan was not sad, but her tears depicted the overwhelming joy she felt after becoming a mother. The actress says it was frightening at first because she was a bit inexperienced to care for a newborn baby. In 2008 when this interview got published, John was about to be a year old, and Moynahan looked quite confident about raising her son independently.

Moynahan further said, “When you’re suddenly pregnant and no one is standing by your side, even if you’re in your 30s, it’s a hard conversation. I’m a traditional girl, and I believe in marriage, and I just always thought that’s the way I’d be doing this. For a moment, it was hard for me to accept that this was the way I was going to have a family.” The model turned actress had never thought of raising kids all alone.
