How Tom Brady's Ex Reacted To Him Going To The Super Bowl Again
Tom Brady had a big win on January 24th, 2021. Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers - his new team since leaving the New England Patriots - beat the Green Bay Packers 31-26, clinching the Bucs a spot in Super Bowl LV. It was an especially meaningful win for Brady as he will be heading to his tenth Super Bowl, where he and his team will play against the Kansas City Chiefs on February 7th, 2021.
There was a touching moment at the end of the game where Brady ran to the stands and asked a security guard, "Can I say hi to my son?" Brady's son Jack, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan, ran down the stairs and hugged his dad. "Love you, kiddo," Brady said as he held his son, per NBC Sports.
After the win, Brady explained how special it was for him that Jack was in the stands.
"Doesn't get any better for a dad than that [...] He was gonna freeze his butt off here, and so I called him on Friday. I said, 'Are you sure you wanna go?' He's like, 'Dad, I wanna go.' For him to be there and to see it just makes it so special for me. I hope it's as special for him as it is for me."
However, it wasn't just Jack who showed support. In fact, Moynahan also shared her joy and had some supportive words for her ex. She wrote on Instagram,
"Could not be more proud @tombrady said he would do it and he did. Congratulations @buccaneers." She included a photo of the sweet exchange between father and son."
Moynahan and Brady broke up in 2006 after two years of dating, per Us Weekly, and Brady went on to date model Gisele Bündchen. They married in 2009 and share two children, Benjamin and Vivian. As the two families came together, Bündchen and Moynahan had their own journey in accepting each other.
Fans absolutely loved Bridget Moynahan's praise for her ex. When she shared the congratulatory post on Instagram, people couldn't help but reach out to say how touched they were by her message and their positive example of co-parenting. Moynahan married businessman Andrew Frankel in 2015, so they've obviously had to learn the art and balance of co-parenting. One person wrote on Moynahan's post, adding a heart emoji,
"This is the best!! [G]reat player and dad! You are a great role model for all co-parents!"
Another person noted Moynahan's willingness to praise Brady and said,
"Huge of you and love your journey of respect for each other."
Another person wrote,
"You are a true example of co-parenting. Class act."
Despite this obvious message of support, have Moynahan and Brady always had an easy relationship? Not exactly...
After they split in 2006, Moynahan revealed that she was pregnant with his child, according to Harper's Bazaar, and at that point, Brady had already started dating Gisele Bündchen. According to People, the experience was a challenging one for Moynahan, as she faced public scrutiny and unwanted attention, especially while Brady's life buzzed with news of his brand-new relationship.
However, as time passed and both Moynahan and Brady found and remained in relationships of their own, Moynahan has positive things to say about the situation and the life her son, Jack, gets to live. Moynahan told People in April 2019,
"Tom and I made a decision to raise a child together and we both found partners that not only supported us in raising that child, but also loved our child as if he was their own. [...] I don't think you can ask for more than that. My son is surrounded by love."
That's definitely something to celebrate, perhaps even more so than Brady's return to the Super Bowl. Though, obviously, we're excited for him on that front too!
