The whole Bridget/Tom/Gis thing wasn’t exactly the same levels of ESCANDALO as the whole Mary-Louise Parker and Billy Crudup situation, but it was still a little messy. Bridget Moynahan and Tom Brady were together for around 3 years and after they broke up, he didn’t waste any time in moving on to Gisele Bundchen. Not long after GisBra was born, Bridget found out she was knocked up.
Gis talked about that time while pimping out her already sold-out limited-edition $700 coffee table book titled Who In The Hell Is Paying $700 For A Bunch Of Pictures You Can Probably Get On Google Images during an interview with Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning (video below). Gis says that she nearly headed for the exit door after finding out that her brand new piece was going to be a daddy. via People
“It was a challenging thing because here I am, you know, thinking, I’m dating this guy, we met, and we started dating and everything is great and then this happens. So, then I felt like I didn’t know what to do. It was kind of one of those moments of like, ‘Do I just run away?’ “
But if Gis ran away, she would’ve never been one half of the Brangelina of the sports and modeling worlds! Gisele says that Tom is a very “kind man” (translation: “bitch is simple“) and she loves her 8-year-old “bonus” son John Moynahan:
“I think, now, eight years later, I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter bonus child.”
“Bonus child.” How very LeAnn Rimes of her. I know people have serious thoughts about “bonus child.” One time when I was a little kid, my stepmother at the time took me shopping and she called me her “son” in front of a salesperson. Just “son.” That may have been the first time I learned how to side-eye. So I would’ve rather she called me her “bonus son” or even “that brat.” Hell, I would’ve gladly taken, “This whiny baggage I didn’t sign up for!” and “Unwanted gift with purchase.”
But maybe something got lost in translation and Gisele didn’t call John her “bonus child.” Maybe she was talking about Tom.
