Bridget Moynahan, who recently ended a three-year relationship with Tom Brady, says she's pregnant and the New England Patriots quarterback is the father.
The New York Post, which first reported the pregnancy this morning, quoted Moynahan's publicist as saying that the 36-year-old actress is more than three months pregnant and feeling "healthy and excited."
The publicist, Christina Padadopoulos, later told US Weekly magazine: "(Moynahan's) former boyfriend Tom Brady is the father. Privacy and consideration is appreciated at this time. No further comments will be made."
Brady, 29, who has been dating supermodel Gisele Bundchen since he and Moynahan announced their break-up in mid December, could not be reached for comment yesterday, and his agent, Don Yee, did not return a phone call. It will be the first child for both Moynahan and the two-time Super Bowl MVP.
A former model best known for her role opposite Will Smith in the science-fiction thriller "I, Robot," Moynahan had made no secret of her desire to start a family. Asked last fall what she'd like to be doing in five years, the actress, who grew up in Longmeadow, replied, "Definitely marriage and kids." Although the break-up with Brady was said to be amicable, there were tabloid reports that Moynahan had since become depressed and lost a lot of weight. The actress looked healthy last week at the New York premiere of her new film, "Gray Matters."
Brady, meanwhile, has not missed a bit. Just before Christmas, the star quarterback began romancing Bundchen, the 26-year-old Brazilian beauty whose ex-boyfriends include actor Leonardo DiCaprio and surfer Kelly Slater. In recent weeks, Brady and Bundchen have been photographed coming and going from the Victoria Secrets model's SoHo apartment building, and Brady is reported to have given Bundchen a pair of diamond earrings for Valentine's Day.
