Bridget Moynahan shares rare details about parenting with Tom Brady



Bridget Moynahan and Tom Brady have a solid playbook when it comes to co-parenting.  The “Blue Bloods” actress, 52, and future Hall of Fame quarterback, who dated for three years before calling it quits in December 2006, share a 15-year-old son, Jack.

During a recent appearance on “Live with Kelly and Mark,” Moynahan was asked about what Jack would want to be when he grows up — and explained that she and Brady, 45, are on the same page when it comes to their son’s potential career path.

“What about your son, Jack? Does he dream of being a dentist?” host Kelly Ripa asked.  “I don’t think he’s expressed any dental dreams, and I really think that he’s kind of like that normal kid who doesn’t really know what he wants to do yet and I think that’s okay,” Moynahan said.  “I certainly don’t want to put any pressure on him to do what I do or what his father does.”

“Does he play football? Does he throw the ball around?” Ripa asked.  “No, he’s more of a basketball player,” Moynahan said. “He loves basketball. Yeah, basketball and lacrosse.”

Brady echoed the same in a June interview with People.  “Yeah, he played [football] this last year and I don’t even know if he’s going to play next year,” he said of Jack. “And to be honest, whatever he chooses, I’ll be very happy. But he loves lacrosse…basketball’s probably his favorite sport, but he’s a very good student.”


Brady and his ex-wife, Gisele Bündchen, co-parent their daughter Vivian, 10, and son Benjamin, 13.  The exes announced in October that they had finalized their divorce after 13 years of marriage.  Brady also spoke about Jack following in his footsteps during a television interview with ESPN last month.

When asked what his hopes and concerns are for Jack playing the quarterback position, Brady explained why he wouldn’t choose football for his son.  “I hope he [Jack] finds the things in his life that allow him to get up every day to be internally motivated to work hard at something that he loves to do,” Brady said.  “A lot of it I wouldn’t choose for him to do that because there’s too many crazy expectations that people would put on him. Most of them probably very unfair actually.”

Brady added, “That’s what we as parents should do — support our children’s dreams whatever they may be. It doesn’t need to be sports. It could be whatever.  “… Now that I’ve got more time on my hands, I’m very much looking forward to doing that as well.”

rady hung up his jersey for good on Feb. 1, when he announced in a video on social media that he was calling it a career after 23 NFL seasons — which included seven Super Bowl titles, five Super Bowl MVPs and three NFL MVPs.  After agreeing to a $375 million contract with Fox Sports in 2022 to be a game analyst, Brady announced in February of this year that he will join the network in 2024.
