Bridget Moynahan talks blended family: Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen and new love, McG
The actress covers "More" magazine this March and spills on how she, Brady and Gisele Bundchen are working on the whole "big-happy-family" thing.
"I never made a comment about Gisele or Tom publicly," she says. "I have a relationship with these people on a daily basis. I'm raising a child, and it's public. The media creates these dramas, and that's not what's happening in my life."
Adding, "My son has two loving parents and an extended family, whether it's cousins or stepmothers or boyfriends. My son is surrounded by love."
Moynahan discovered she was pregnant with Brady's child after the couple split in December 2006, and recalls that those first days as a single mom weren't easy.
"Every time my dad mentioned he had to go [home to Massachusetts], I'd start crying," she admits. Adding that she remembers "hyperventilating" from anxiety after the birth.
As for Brady's involvement in the birth of their son, John Edward Thomas Moynahan, she says, "He certainly wasn't holding my hand while I pushed."
"[Tom] was not in the [delivery] room," Moynahan explains. "He was there on that day and came in afterwards."
The "Blue Bloods" actress now has a new man in her life, "Charlie's Angels" director (but more importantly, "The O.C." executive producer), Joseph "McG" McGinty Nichol.
"He's witty, he's smart, he's incredibly funny, he's got incredible taste, and he comes from a great family," she raves. "He's the salt of the earth but also very successful in the crazy business we're in."
Adding, "He and Jack have a great relationship."
