Bridget Moynahan may have wanted to drop-kick her football-playing ex, Tom Brady, when their relationship came to an end while she was pregnant with their first child.
"I’m not sure anyone—and I could be wrong in this—grows up thinking, I want to be a single mom," the actress reveals in the July issue of Harper's Bazaar.
But the I, Robot star decided to play out the remaining months of the baby game herself and, in the process, scored a touchdown in the form of a boy named 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," says Bridget. "But now I have a child, and it's the best thing in the world."
As for Jack's dad, the 37-year-old mom is mum when it comes to discussing him.
"There's no reason why my son, years down the line, would need to read anything [personal] about his mother or his father," she insists.
Score one for Team Moynahan.
And a team it is indeed, as Bridget points out when discussing her social life. "It's brought higher-quality people into my life because whoever is going to be [with me] understands straight off the bat it's a package."
