Tom Brady and his ex, Bridget Moynahan, had a rocky relationship for many years. But the Tampa Bay quarterback and his ex seem to finally be putting the tension behind them.
The Tampa Bay quarterback posted an Instagram Story of his ex and 13-year-old son, Jack, at the 2018 U.S. Open in New York. The story was captioned: “Happy Birthday @bridgetmoynahan we hope you have a GREAT day.”
Years ago, the two worked hard to keep their breakup quiet, especially after Brady began dating supermodel Gisele Bündchen. But once Moynahan discovered that she was pregnant with Brady’s child months later, the couple quickly made headlines. Over a decade later, the two have managed to co-parent and build a healthy friendship while remaining with their own partners.
In 2008, Moynahan opened up about the situation: “Going through that traumatic time of being heartbroken and then being pregnant turned my whole life upside down and inside out and just knocked the wind out of me. But I got so much out of that. It’s golden, and it’s tough, and it was f–ked up. But now I have a child, and it’s the best thing in the world.”
The Super Bowl winner admitted that the birth of his first child Jack, which he wasn’t present for, brought him closer to his wife Gisele: “I found out a lot about Gisele through this experience, and she found out a lot about me dealing with a situation that was, I would say, not a very easy one.” Brady has said that Jack is “the most amazing son” and that his “heart explodes when I think of him.”
Somehow, an unlikely friendship has blossomed after the breakup. Both Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan have expressed their respect and admiration for each other over the last few years. “Tom and I made a decision to raise a child together, and we both found partners that not only supported us in raising that child but also loved our child as if he was their own,” Moynahan said. “I don’t think you can ask for more than that. My son is surrounded by love.”
