So much for the fairytale romance between the handsome football hero and his alluring actress girlfriend.
US Weekly reported yesterday that Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan have broken up, ending a relationship that once seemed a good bet to end in wedded bliss.
Moynahan's rep, Christina Papadopoulos, confirmed for us that the couple "amicably ended their three year relationship several weeks ago. We ask for your respect and consideration of their privacy. No further comments will be made.
And an unnamed pal of the Pats QB had this to say: "They were both very focused on their careers. She was putting a lot into 'Six Degrees,' he into the Patriots. It was just really hard to make it work."
Moynahan, who's 36, has made no secret of her desire to start a family. Asked recently where she'd be in five years, the actress, who grew up in Longmeadow, replied, "Definitely marriage and kids."
Brady, 29, was asked the same question on WEEI earlier this week, and said, "Playing football."
Still, the couple looked to be getting cozier. Moynahan, who recently moved from LA to New York to work on her ABC series, "Six Degrees," occasionally showed up on the sidelines at Pats games, and Brady was by her side throughout the offseason. (They nuzzled at a New Jersey Nets playoff game, and in their Armanis made a truly dashing duo last May at the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.)
Fueling speculation that Brady and Bridget were getting serious, the two-time Super Bowl MVP bought a seven-room condo in Manhattan in September, paying $14.5 million for the plush pad. But then, last weekend, the pair were both in South Florida - he for a game against the Miami Dolphins and she to attend the Art Basel Miami Beach art auction - but they were never seen together.
