Moynahan got married in 2015 and has a strong co-parenting relationship with Brady after she said she got her "New York armor back."
Bridget Moynahan likened the public interest in her pregnancy with ex-boyfriend Tom Brady’s child to being "assaulted."
In the new book, "Our Shoes, Our Selves," the model is one of 40 women who shared an essay about their favorite pair of shoes means to them. In Moynahan's essay, the "Blue Bloods" star gave readers a deeper look into the immense public interest in her after it was revealed she was expecting a baby with Brady as he was moving on with his now-wife, Gisele Bundchen.
“Having a baby should have been the most joyous time of my life, but instead I felt assaulted,” the 47-year-old writes in the book (via Us Weekly). ”It’s unnerving to be followed and stalked like that, especially during such an emotionally vulnerable time.”
Moynahan and the New England Patriots quarterback welcomed son John “Jack” Edward Thomas in August 2007. While they've settled into a co-parenting relationship today, things didn’t start out smooth for them.
“I would have cars following me, and men hiding in the bushes outside my house,” she shared. "As a new mother, you want to just protect your child. That kind of attention felt like a threat.”
