The actress previously released a cookbook based on her show called Blue Bloods Cook Book. She is back with a new book called Our Shoes, Our Selves: 40 Women, 40 Stories, 40 Pairs of Shoes.

It’s full of anthology essays by women about their memories connected to their most meaningful pair of shoes. The book is co-written by Moynahan,
journalist Amanda Benchley, and photos are by Melanie Dunea. Some of the proceeds from the book will go to the charity Girls, Inc.

There are 40 stories and some amazing women are included. Bobbi Brown, Danica Patrick, Misty Copeland, Christiane Amanpour and Katie Couric are some of the many high-profile women profiled in it.

Moynahan also wrote an essay for the book. She talked about the inspiration behind the essay in an interview.

She said she was being followed while pregnant in cars and people would hide in her bushes

oynahan revealed that her essay is about her struggle in 2007 expecting her baby with her ex-boyfriend Tom Brady. He already moved on to Gisele Bündchen, which made their breakup a bigger focus in the media.

“Being pregnant and having a baby are such personal, intimate moments,” she explained. Instead, of getting that space she was being followed.

“I would have cars following me, and men hiding in the bushes outside my house,” revealed Moynahan. “As a new mother, you want to just protect your child. That kind of attention felt like a threat.”

One time when she was hiding from photographers and she saw a pair of motorcycle boots in Barneys. “I thought, that’s what I need. Let me get a little bit of my ‘New York’ back, a little armor,” she said.

Now she has nothing but good things to say about co-parenting with her ex. Brady is married to Bündchen and Moynahan is married to Andrew Frankel.

“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,” she said. “I don’t think you can ask for more than that. My son is surrounded by love.”

Being followed while pregnant certainly sounds scary. Fans can read the essay in the book, which is available for pre-order and will be available in Barnes & Noble on April 9, 2019.
