Update: Sports broadcaster Dan Dierdorf announced in the Patriot’s pre-game today that baby’s name is John/Jonathan. (Different CBB readers heard different things.) However, keep in mind that Tom and Bridget’s reps have so far refused to release additional information, and it seems to just be a spin-off of this morning’s Herald column. Tom did make it to the game this evening and is playing – he actually got to NC on Thursday night for a team meeting, rather than still being in CA on Friday morning as the Herald reported earlier.
Update 10:40 am: Today’s Boston Herald Inside Track column rumors that the possible baby name is now Jonathan, that Tom is currently still in CA but will fly to NC for the Patriots exhibition game this evening, and that baby photos will be made available to magazines to quell paparazzi interest — but there will be no interview to go with the snaps.
Update August 23rd at 9:30pm: Rumor: In Touch reports that the baby weighed in at 7 lbs, 14 oz, and was 22 ¼ inches long. Bridget apparently did need to undergo a c-section after attempts to correct a transverse lie (when baby is positioned across the uterus instead of head down) were unsuccessful. Additionally, the tabloid reports that Tom missed the birth by just minutes.

Update August 23rd at 3pm: A source tells the Boston Herald‘s Inside Track that Tom and Bridget are considering ‘Irish-sounding’ names given their backgrounds, and that William seems to be a current favorite (despite its English roots).
Update 6:31 pm: "Both mother and baby are doing well," says Bridget’s rep.
Originally posted August 22nd at 6:28 pm: Actress Bridget Moynahan, 36, and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, 30, welcomed a son earlier today at St. John’s Medical Center in Santa Monica. No details are currently available.
Bridget had been almost two weeks overdue — Tom left training camp in Boston on Wednesday for Los Angeles, but no word on if he (and his flowers) made it in time for the birth.
