Early life, upbringing, and family

As a result, Gisele found it difficult to come to terms with her boyfriend fathering someone else’s child. There were also many rumors that Gisele and Bridget did not get along well.
However, after the birth of John Edward on August 22, 2007, Tom and Bridget came to an agreement that they would remain friends and focus on properly co-parenting their newborn. Gisele Bündchen also wholeheartedly accepted John Brady and treated him like her own son.
Gisele famously said in an interview,
“I understand that he has a mom, and I respect that, but to me, it’s not like because somebody else delivered him, that’s not my child. I feel it is, 100 percent.”
“I want him to have a great relationship with his mom because that’s important, but I love him the same way as if he were mine. I already feel like he’s my son, from the first day.”
Although Bridget initially did not like Bündchen’s choice of words, she later forgave her. Presently, John’s mother and stepmother are on good terms with each other.
In a 2019 interview with people, Moynahan revealed,
“Tom and I made the 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.”
John Edward, therefore, had a wonderful childhood. Raised mostly by his mom Bridget Moynahan, Jack spends a lot of time with his father Tom, his stepmother, and his two half-siblings whenever he is in LA.

In a later interview with Howard Stern, Tom Brady admitted,
