Bridget Moynahan: What You Don't Know About Tom Brady's Ex
Lifestyle - News
Single Mom
Football star Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan were in a relationship for three years before splitting in 2006. When she revealed she was pregnant, Brady had already moved on to his now-wife, Gisele Bündchen. Moynahan told Harper's Bazaar, “I'm not sure anyone — and I could be wrong in this — grows up thinking, I want to be a single mom.”
It didn't take long for Bridget Moynahan to adjust to being a mother. She admitted to being the kind of person who can't help talking about their kids. She told Harper’s Bazaar, “I have become that mother I used to dread. Every time he does something, you think he's a genius.”
Tomboy For Life
It isn't just eating healthy that keeps Moynahan in tip-top shape; she also has working out to thank for that. She told WebMD, “I grew up playing sports and I was on teams my whole life. I was also active during the summers in tennis camps and basketball camps. I've just always been active; it's been part of my lifestyle my entire life.”
Before Modeling
Moynahan started modeling after graduating from high school, but she could have entered the business long before that. She told Women of Upstate New York, “Apparently, my mother said I was approached [to model] my entire life, but I was never aware of that,” as her parents wanted her to go to business school.
Big Break
Moynahan's transition from modeling to acting was a lot easier than it could have been due to one amazing break. On “The Meredith Vieira Show,” she revealed that her first acting job was only supposed to be a one-time guest spot on “Sex and the City,” but her one-episode role turned into a multi-episode arc.
