Gisele Bündchen recalls 'challenging' time when Tom Brady fathered a child to another woman

Gisele Bündchen recalls 'challenging' time when Tom Brady fathered a child to another woman

The model has reflected on how she, Tom and the mother of his son, Bridget Moynahan, managed to work everything out.

Gisele Bündchen has reflected on the moment she found out her ex-husband Tom Brady was having a baby with another woman.

The Brazilian fashion model, 42, started dating former NFL quarterback, 45, in December 2006 before tying the knot in February 2009.

The couple went through a ‘challenging’ period early into their relationship when they learned that Tom would soon become a dad.

Tom dated actor Bridget Moynahan from 2004 until late 2006 which was around the time Bridget became pregnant.

The Blue Bloods star confirmed she was expecting via People magazine in February 2007 and their son, John Edward Thomas Moynahan, now 15, was born in August 2007.

Gisele looked back and called it a ‘challenging situation for all of us’ but the trio were able to make everything work in the end through co-parenting.

However, Gisele and Bridget didn’t meet each other for more than a year after Jack’s birth.

“I have a great relationship with her,” Gisele revealed to Vanity Fair. “Everything in life comes with work. You have to go through the roller coaster. You have moments where you get to the sticky points and you’ve gotta overcome it.”

Bridget Moynahan gave birth to Jack in August 2007.

The former Victoria’s Secret Angel is happy that all three parties were able to reach this point.

“Love conquers all,” she gushed. “My life became so much richer because I got to learn so much from that.”

Gisele said both she and Tom wanted to put Jack first, which helped everyone involved.

“My goal was always, how can I be the most helpful? How can I make it the easiest I possibly can?” she shared regarding her feelings towards Bridget.

“I put myself in her shoes ad I was like, ‘How can I support her?’ Because in the end of the day, we are team players in ‘How are we going to do this so [Jack] can have the best life?’”

Gisele and Tom divorced in October 2022.

Jack’s birth had a profound impact on Gisele, who felt compelled to become a mum. She shares 13-year-old son Benjamin, who was born in 2009, and daughter Vivian, 10, with ex-husband Tom.

“Jack came into our lives and I felt so blessed and it kind of awakened in me this desire of being a mom,” she revealed. “I’ve always dreamed of being a mum, but I think that happened a little faster than I thought, because now I have this beautiful angel that I get to care for and love.”

In August last year, Gisele posted a beautiful tribute to Jack on his 15th birthday, writing: "Happy birthday sweetest Jack!! 15 looks great on you! I wish you all the most wonderful things in the world. You are so loved by all of us. Te amo."
