Bridget Moynahan Opens Up About Losing Tom Brady to Gisele

Beauty & Style 40

Bridget MoynahanIf supermodel Gisele Bundchen has annoyed the world with her statements on stepmothering, it's due in part to the fact that the scorned woman in the equation, Bridget Moynahan, has always maintained an admirable silence on the matter.

It's impressive. I mean, if Tom Brady had ditched me for a supermodel while I was pregnant with our child, I'm not sure I could have kept my mouth shut. But Bridget did -- and we all loved her for it.

Now though, she's finally opening up on the subject in the latest issue of More magazine -- and looking damn good while doing it.

Read the surprising -- and poignant -- things Bridget has to say on the matter after the jump.

It turns out that even when her pregnancy hormones were doubtlessly raging, Bridget knew (unlike Gisele) that it would be stupid for her to make public statements about her ex and his nubile new love. She tells More:

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.

I find this statement incredibly stoic, don't you? I'm sure that every time she gives an interview, she's pumped for juicy details, and yet she has managed to keep them to herself.

Bridget also told the magazine that while Tom was at the hospital while she delivered their child, he was not in the delivery room with her. And once she had given birth and realized she was truly on her own, she was terrified.

Every time my dad mentioned he had to go (home to Massachusetts), I'd start crying ... [but] there's not a second I regret having a child on my own.

It's sad and actually a little bit of a surprise to realize that even gorgeous, intelligent celebrities like Bridget Moynahan aren't immune to being left by their men and feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of being a stay-at-home mom.

Stay classy, Bridget. Your actions in public right now may end up being the sweetest revenge there is on Gisele -- because that girl can't seem to keep her mouth shut.

What do you think of Bridget's revelations?

She's prettier than Gisele.

I lost all respect for Tom Brady when this all went down. Bridget has always kept to herself her feelings on the matter and shows a wisdom and a "sensitivity chip" Giselle doesn't appear to have. Who can forget when she proclaimed she felt her stepson was "100% hers". Feeling that way and saying it in public are two different things. Bridgets refusal to say much of anything about her sons dad, douche that he may be, makes me love her even more.

I have to agree with Sassy. When that all went down and he acted like she was a whore that slept around, I couldnt stand him since then. I dont like Gisele either.

Yup, I don't like Tom Brady either. Liking Gisele less every day.

She has not kept her mouth shut because I found this article when I searched for Gisele today. Its getting her publicity. I can't recall the last time I heard anything about/from her work,jobs,etc...Its always name dropping Tom and Gisele.

She is full of it. Tom never left her for Gisele, they were already split up and she called him with pregnacy news when Tom was already in the relashionship with Gisele...It was her choice or may be a way to hold on to Tom! Oldest trick in the world, afterall!

Seriously classy lady. I raised my son on my own. It's difficult, but I wouldn't have traded it for the world either. I never said a bad word about his father to him...and believe me, at times it was really, really hard not to. This little boy is blessed to have her as a mother; his cross in life is his father and step mother.

Classy is as classy does. I applaud your poise and option to be the ädult" in this. Good for you.

Bridget seems very fond of her victimhood, and seems quite passive-aggressive.

I love that she has been relatively quiet about the topic of her, her son, her family, Tom Brady and Gisele. In addition, her new show Blue Bloods is wonderful!
