At least she’s positive about the situation:
These days, Bridget Moynahan has gone from front-page scandal fodder to silver screen star. The model-turned-actress, 39, famously discovered she was three months pregnant after she and then-boyfriend, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, called off their three-year romance in 2007. Brady, who moved on from Moynahan to supermodel Gisele Bundchen, was already a couple months into his new relationship when the actress made her shocking announcement.
The ensuing tabloid war had headlines like “Oh, no! I’m knocked up, we’ve split up and this is my rival!” splashed across the front pages of the Daily News, and the two runway beauties were pitted against each other in the media. Even so, however, the “Blue Bloods” actress tells More magazine that she refuses to speak out about the scandal that colored tabloid pages a thousand times over.
“I’m raising a child, and it’s public. The media creates these dramas, and that’s not what’s happening in my life,” she said. Moynahan has kept her tone light during moments of public drama, remaining relatively mum following Bundchen’s comments in Vanity Fair, and after the arrival of Bundchen and Brady’s own bundle of joy in 2009, merely saying that she “wished them well.” John Edward Thomas, her young son, is the light of her life, Moynahan says, and notes firmly that “there’s not a second that I regret having a child on my own.”
The actress, who stars opposite Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg in the new CBS cop series, is very focused on her son, according to her costars. “She’s inspiring. She talks about her son all day,” Wahlberg, who is also a single parent, said. “She doesn’t bad-mouth Tom to me, and I certainly wouldn’t bad-mouth my ex to her. Sometimes it’s just sharing pictures of our kids and a joke. She’s very funny.” But though she is grateful for her son, Moynahan still struggles with the difficulties of her blended family.
“I don’t think any girl grows up dreaming of being a single mom,” she said. “It’s a challenge. Here is the most valuable part of your life, your child, and you have to learn to let go and hand him over to the person that you couldn’t communicate enough with to have a relationship.”
Good for her…
