Bridget Moynahan candidly reveals how she felt being pregnant without the support of the babydaddy, 30 year-old NFL star Tom Brady, to Harper’s Bazaar.
On Bringing Baby Jack home: “Everyone says, ‘You give birth, you go home, and you have this amazing baby and it’s just beautiful. And I walked in and I just started sobbing. All of a sudden, you have this newborn you have no training for. It’s frightening.”
On Motherhood 9 months later:“ “I have become that mother I used to dread. Every time he does something, you think he’s a genius.” She pauses, “He’s totally a genius.”
On finding herself alone at 3 months pregnant: “I’m not sure anyone — and I could be wrong in this — grows up thinking, I want to be a single mom,” Bridget was three months pregnant with Tom’s child but no longer in a relationship with him. She says, “There’s no reason why my son years down the line would need to read anything [personal] about his mother or his father.” Tom has since moved on with Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen, 27. Bridget is raising her son alone (though Brady spends time with Jack). “Going through that traumatic time of being heartbroken and then being pregnant turned my whole life upside down and inside out and just knocked the wind out of me. But I got so much out of that. It’s golden and it’s tough and it was f***’ed up. But now I have a child, and it’s the best thing in the world.”
On deciding to go it alone: “You really have to weigh out all the pros and cons and how it will fit into your life professionally, spiritually, and emotionally. Doing it on your own when it wasn’t expected comes with a lot of fears and anxieties. But I felt 100 percent that I could do this.”
On telling her parents: “When you’re suddenly pregnant and no one is standing by your side, even if you’re in your 30s, it’s a hard conversation. I’m a traditional girl, and I believe in marriage, and I just always thought that’s the way I’d be doing this. For a moment, it was hard for me to accept that this was the way I was going to have a family. I’ve had to recognize that there are just so many different options today.”
On enjoying her pregnancy: Bridget said she enjoyed her pregnancy and the weight she gained was “all baby. Being pregnant just felt so good. I was creating life on a daily basis, I felt beautiful, I felt sexy.”
On dating during her pregnancy: “I couldn’t believe how many times I was asked out! Not that I went out a lot. When I was faced with doing this on my own, I was worried about how it was going to affect my personal life. I was confident that it was not going to be an issue. And I was right. God, I’d love to have another one.”
On wanting a partner for her next pregnancy: “I think it’s important to have a strong male figure in my son’s life, and I want something equal to that in my life, as a partner, a lover, a friend. But I’d rather be alone [than] with somebody who doesn’t work. I don’t need that, and my son doesn’t need that.” Bridget says having Jack has drawn quality people into her life, “It’s brought higher-quality people into my life because whoever is going to be [with me] understands straight off the bat that it’s a package. If you just want to hang out and have some fun, there are a thousand other girls who are willing.”
