The actor previously dated the football player for three years. They then split up in 2006, but she was also pregnant with their child, John Edward Thomas Moynahan, at the time. Brady quickly moved on to model Gisele Bündchen.

“Being pregnant and having a baby are such personal, intimate moments,” Moynahan told People. She talked about how she was followed during that time.

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

The Blue Bloods star revealed one day she hid from photographers at Barneys. She was then inspired to buy motorcycle boots. “I thought, that’s what I need. Let me get a little bit of my ‘New York’ back, a little armor,” she explained.

This time was not only hard for the new mother, but for the new couple. Bündchen revealed that she almost ended things.

The model did an interview with CBS This Morning and admitted finding out Moynahan was pregnant three months into her relationship with Brady was hard. She thought about breaking up with him.

“I didn’t know what to do. It was kind of one of those moments of like, ‘Do I just run away?'” Bündchen said. “I think it was very challenging for everyone involved.”

Their relationship continued despite their challenges. They got married in 2009 and went on to have two of their own children, Vivian and Benjamin. Bündchen has also been involved with John’s life given Brady has been co-parenting with Moynahan.
