Update: Bridget Moynahan and Tom Brady welcome a son

08/24/2007 at 07:40 PM ET

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.

Click below for the original post.

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.

Thanks to CBB readers Rachel and Christina.

Leigh on

Whoo hoo! He’s finally here! Congrats to both of them and I can’t wait to find out more info and see pics!

Sam on

Cool, congratulations to both on their baby boy!

jean on

So happy for Bridget! We always knew it was a boy with the way she had been dressing herself, always baby blue clothes! Can’t wait to hear if Brady made the birth. Probably not, unless he came out last night!

Charity on

I can’t wait to find out details, like the baby’s name. And to see a pic of the little guy, I’m sure he’s very handsome!

Devon on

Congrats! Finally she has her little man. I hope Tom was there for the birth. Yay to Bridget and Tom.

lj on

Congratulations to both!!!
I am so happy for her. Can’t wait to see the baby pics!!!

Karen on

DO YOU THINK…THEY WILL BE FREE WITH PHOTO’S…A FEW FAMOUS PARENTS WERE VERY GUARDED……

Cindy on

Gosh, I’m so over-the-top excited, you’d think they were family. This is such great news. I’m happy for all of them, plus their families. I’m also relieved that Mom & Baby are both healthy. That’s the most important thing, really. Cannot wait to see pics of this gotta-be-gorgeous kid!! Congrats all around!

Anais on

YAY! I’m so happy for her, she is one of my very favouritest people in the world, I know she’ll be a great mom!

Elizabeth on

Congrats to both of them. Cannot wait to see a pic of their beautiful son!

Awww, it is so sweet that Tom was seen bringing flowers to the hospital. Tom is not my favorite person in the world, but I hope that he treats his son’s mother right, and they can all be happy.

Lola on

OH God!! finally!! i was sooo keeping an eye on this baby my gosh seems like he has taken forever to be born! but now he’s finally here and i feel so happy for both!! gossh baby moynahan…were u taking ur time!!

Renee on

Yay! She finally had the baby! I was just waiting for him to make his apperance. I’m sure he is a cutie. Congrats to both Bridget and Tom!!

Melissa on

Yeah! congrats. It seems like she was pregnant forever. I hope Tom was able to get there in time.

Miss155 on

Congrats.

amanda on

FINALLY! I have been checking here every day for a month, wondering when she was gonna have this baby! Congrats to both parents. Hopefully they can get past whatever differences and focus on raising their child. Keeping my fingers crossed that the little guy doesn’t have an insanely odd name ;)

Luciana on

Finally!! I came here everyday for the last few weeks just to read the news about Bridget and the baby!
I’m pretty sure that little boy is gorgeous, with Tom & B as parents..
I’m not one of those people that hates Tom, actualy, I think they were all very mature with this whole situation… he is definately not a bad guy..
That kid will be happy, that’s all that really matters.

I can’t wait to see pictures of him and to know his name!!

Congrats to B & Tom.

BRADYSUCKS on

Shit. I was banking on that kid dying whether due to stillbirth or death on delivery.

Callen on

FINALLY! im sure he is adorable and thats all I have to say!

Tilly on

Finally:-) Congrats to Bridget and Tom!! I hope he really steps up and is a great father to this baby and I hope he and Bridget can work things out, even if they aren’t together as a couple.
Can’t wait to see pics of baby!!

Steph on

Congrats to them. I think it would be cute and hilarious if she named him Brady. All you Sex & the City fans (she was on the show a bit) should realize how funny it is that she had a baby with her ex (well not at the time she got pregnant) and that his last name is Brady.. like Steve Brady abd Miranda named her baby Brady. Anyways, the thought for some reason crossed my mind. lol

gabriella on

I just knew she was having a boy from day one. Anyway can’t wait to see the pictures, and the baby’s name.

FC on

Congrats to Bridget and Tom on their new baby boy! And, on a serious note, here’s hoping that Tom and the flowers did make it before the delivery. It’d just be a nice touch seeing as this is the first child for both, IMO.

But anyway, I’m glad she and the baby are both doing well. And yes, I can’t wait to see this one.

Seems baby boy expectancies/arrivals are outweighing the baby girl expectancy/arrivals for 2007. ;) Next year may be year of the girls..j/k..lol.

Alicia on

Congrats to Tom! Great that he went right to LA and with flowers. He is such a good guy. I am so excited for him. He will be an amazing Daddy!

Way to go Tom!!!! I hope we have another futher HOF QB on our hands!

Marsha on

In a way it is bitter sweet for them. I feel bad that he has to run back 3000 miles to be with his team. She made it very hard for him to be a hands on Dad and for that, I am not happy with her. It is not obvious to all in how badly she wanted this baby and wanted to keep her man so she planned it? In any case, what is done is done and I am thrilled that the baby is heathy. At her age I have to admit, I was a bit concerned since her stomach seemed very weirdly shaped, but it seems all is well. I hope she takes this baby to New England to see his Daddy, if not, she will have regrets and her son will resent her for it!

Adam on

‘hope Tom steps up’???? Why wouldn’t he??? He is a great man and will be a great Dad. It is just as much her responsibility to step up since she is the one who planned the baby without him. I hope she is the one who can be a good parent! I am sure Tom will be just fine!

Rachel on

This is the baby I have been waiting for! My husband is a HUGE Patriots fan, and I have always loved both Bridget and Tom.
Congrats to them both!
Maybe the new little one will be Thomas Brady III??

Ally on

FC – Yes it does seem that way! I hope Nicole and Christina have girls, they would be beautiful.

Grayson's Girl on

Yay! Congrats to them! I’ve been checking here three times a day for weeks now to see if she’d had the baby! I bet that is one gorgeous little boy! He’s got one fantastic mom and serious bragging rights from his dad!

terri on

I had a feeling it was a boy. I’ve been waiting on this news forever. Congrats to the Moynahan and Brady families!

Jim on

Congratulations Bridget Moynahan ….

She’s so Gorgeous, so obviously the baby will be too !

Rock On Girl !

Looking so forward to New Episodes of

Six Degrees !

Hillary on

I’m also a member of the checking-daily-for-the-Brady-baby-to-arrive club! I’m so excited for them and I can’t wait to hear the name! That will be on good looking kid!

Dawna on

Glad to hear the baby has arrived. Congrats to Bridget for doing all the hard work and best wishes to her and the wee one.

Maya on

I too join in congratulating Bridget.
I THINK THIS CAN OPEN AN INTERESTING DISCUSSION THREAD.
IF YOU WERE A SINGLE ATTRACTIVE WOMAN IN YOUR MID TO LATE THIRTIES, AND DID NOT HAVE THE FINANCIAL RESOURCES THAT BRIDGET OBVIOUSLY HAS, i.e. YOU COULDN’T AFFORD ROUND THE CLOCK HELP OR TAKING TIME OFF WORK, DO YOU THINK YOU WOULD DECIDE TO BECOME A SINGLE MOTHER?
As for myself, I’m really not sure what I would do.

Emily on

Can’t wait to find out the name. I wonder whose last night he will have? I still hope the two of them will get back together, I always thought they were a great couple. Is he still dating Gisele?

Sarah’s note: As far as we know, yes.

Karen on

I am one of the several who have been checking on here waiting to her this news. I never understood why every was so hard on Tom. He never denied the baby was his, he never talked bad about Bridget. All that happened was they didn’t work out as a couple, which is just as much Bridget’s fault as it is Tom’s. Having a child is not a reason to stay together IMO, I would rather have happy parents that aren’t together then parents who are together and are fighting all the time. None of us know what happened between these two but from what I have seen they have handled this situation amazingly well. I can’t wait to hear what they name their new baby boy!

Maya on

Sarah –
Why won’t CBB allow an interesting intelligent conversation on single parenthood? It’s so hard having a baby when you’re married – I can’t imagine how hard it must be for a non-celeb to be a single parent. You did write, “Feel free to agree or disagree with each other as long as you do it respectfully”…

Nicolie on

Well it’s about darn time! So glad he’s finally here and Bridget doesn’t have to lug around a 2-week-old baby inside her anymore!

Kudos to Tom for attempting to make it on time, especially considering it’s the beginning of football season.

I’m obsessively checking the site multiple times a day to find out the name!

Petra on

Certainly sounds like they’re still together:

Bundchen, who celebrated her 27th birthday in July, recently told a British tabloid that she’s looking forward to becoming the “stepmum” to Brady’s baby. “If you love someone, you love everything that comes with him.” She’s even reported to have bought several gifts for the child, including items from Baby Dior, Burberry, and a Gucci bib.

Rye on

Congrats to both parents on the new baby! Oddly enough, I found myself a tad bummed that she had a boy. haha. I was crossing my fingers for a girl but I knew it would be a boy from day one. Hopefully, (and i doubt she would considering the situation) she won’t name the baby Thomas Brady III, like someone above posted. Haha.

jashmom on

FINALLY!!!!I too am one of those people who checked SEVERAL times a day to see if Bridget gave birth. DH was the one who told me the exciting news last night. Can’t wait to see pictures of the little guy. I’m sure he’s absolutely gorgeous!!!

Congrats Bridget and Tom!!!

Get Married on

Why is everyone so excited about another baby born out of wedlock?
Oh how exciting another kid stuck in the middle of adult drama.

stacy on

I knew it was a boy! She carried the same way I did with my son- straight out front!
I am sure their little boy will be adorable.

KIM on

I AM SOOOO HAPPY FOR THEM. MAYBE THE BABY WILL SPARK SOME OF THE OLD FEELINGS AND HE WILL COME TO HIS SENSES AND GET RID OF THAT HE SHE AND GET BACK WITH BRIDGET. SHE SEEMS LIKE SHE WOULD BE A GREAT MOTHER AND WIFE. CONGRATS AGAIN!!!!!!

Advice lady on

All these “well-wishes”/congrats to Tom and Bridget are very sweet and come from a good place, but does anyone actually think they’re READING this blog? …Your time/good thoughts would be MUCH better spent writing a quick note to someone you KNOW (who could actually read your words & appreciate your thoughtfulness!)

Don’t you know anyone (even casually) who’s ILL? …Just had a baby? …Is going through a hard time? …Recently lost a loved one? Send off a quick note to THAT person, and you could make their DAY/week – who knows?

Just a thought. :)

Aitch on

Can’t wait to hear the name and see the pics. I am yet another Mom checking the status of baby Brady every day!!

Charity on

Jim, sorry to be the one to tell you, but Six Degrees was cancelled. You can confirm this on any reputable tv site (eonline, tvguide, etc.).

No doubt Bridget will find more work!

And I’m still waiting to find out the baby’s name. It would be so akward if they named him Thomas Brady III. I don’t see that happenning.

kelli on

Congrats to the beautiful parents and their families!!!! As a mom, i now find Tom to so much more attractive seeing him as a daddy!!!! cant wait to see the pics!! He is going to be one handsome fella!!! And i hope bill belicheck signs him NOW!! for the future!!! GO PATS!!! and congrats Tom and Bridget
P.S. Get back together!!! lol

Stef on

Congratulations Tom and Bridget!! I’m excited to find out the name of the little guy!!

Carrie Jo on

Congrats to them both. I bet she’s really glad to have finally given birth. She looked like she was about to pop in her most recent pics.

Natasha on

YaYYY!! I was hoping they’d have a boy so he can be a little Tom ;) awwwww :D

Monica on

Let’s also congratulate Tom on this. Seems like everyone is excited about Bridget. As a mother myself of two boys I know it’s exciting but Tom is one of my favorite people and hats off to Tom. I hope they name it after him. What more could a son look up to a father having 3 Super Bowls Rings by age 30. Go Tom win one this year for Tom Jr.

tatum on

Oh my goodness it seems like she’s been preggers forever. She anounced in Feb. her poor belly looked so painfull by the end

gabriella on

William is a nice strong boy name, and I was thinking since both bridget and tom are irish they will pick an irish name. On anther note I had no idea Bridget and Rosie O’Donnell are 3rd cousins, and apparenty rosie didn’t know either until bridget said it on the talk show the view one day. Anyway bridget is pretty and I have a feeling the baby will look like her, I notice a lot of boys take after their mommy in the looks department.

Lynn on

I hope not William – such a common name.

And I thought I read on a post on CBB a week or so back that they had already agreed on a name??

Sarah’s note: That’s what the rumor was at that time. That may be true, this may be true….who knows at this point!

Linda on

The Boston news is reporting that the baby weighed 7 lbs. 14 oz. and that Tom did not make it in time for the birth of the baby. He was minutes late.

Karen on

IN TOUCH…SAYS…THE BABY WEIGHED 7 IbS 14 OZ..AND SHE HAD COMPLICATIONS..AND HAD TO HAVE A C SECTION…THAT SHE LOOKED BIG..BECAUSE OF THE WAY SHE CARRIED HIM..AND SHE HASN’T NAMED HIM…BUT LEANS TO THE NAME WILLIAM..SAID HE HAD ALREADY FLOWN BAVK EAST….

M on

Oh I hope that Tom was able to be there, if Bridget did indeed want him there. I do like the name William though!

Melissa on

“Bundchen, who celebrated her 27th birthday in July, recently told a British tabloid that she’s looking forward to becoming the “stepmum” to Brady’s baby. “If you love someone, you love everything that comes with him.” She’s even reported to have bought several gifts for the child, including items from Baby Dior, Burberry, and a Gucci bib.”

did step mommy dearest have to advertise her intensions and her shopping list.

Stacy on

I’m a devout Patriots fan and watch a sports show dedicated to Boston sports daily and all week they’ve been betting on whether this baby was going to be a William after Coach Belichick of course…when I first read this today I thought, “no way, they were right.” But now I’m thinking the rumor is based on all the gossip over the past week…I guess only timme will tell! Congrats to them both though…I like them both and have no doubt they’ll be great parents!

J.J. on

Congrats!!! FINALLY Baby Brady arrived!! Can’t wait to hear what the name is for the little guy, and am already anxious for pics!! Bet he will look like a mini Tom.

Anais on

Jim and Charity – earlier this year, Bridget signed a contract with ABC to develop a new show when she decides the time is right. Turns out that the network loved her so much that they didn’t want to let her go!

daphneesmith on

Congrats to Tom and Bridget, and Welcome Baby Boy! Can’t wait to learn your name. Wishing you all a lifetime of happiness and peace. :)

Charity on

Anais, thanks for the info! :)

Annoyomus on

Congrats to both of them! ITA with Monica, Tom deserves to be congratulated as well. I noticed that so many commenters are saying things like:

“I’m so happy for her!”

“Congrats to her!”

“Congratulations to Bridget Moynahan!”

and

“Finally she has her little man!”

What about him?! He’s the father, so people should be congratulating him and be happy for him as well. I know that situation was kind of weird, but in truth we don’t exactly what happened when/after they broke up. Also, at least he has been making comments about how he is looking forward to fatherhood and he has not pulled an Eddie Murphy and denied the child is his.

Anyway, since Bridget had a C-section, I am a bit surprised that they didn’t just wait to do the section until Tom got there (especially since it sounds like it was done because of positioning, not because of an emergency situation).

Sarah’s note: From what we heard, she did go into labor on her own and really had her heart set on a natural birth, but he just did not turn. If she was in active labor, there’s always the chance of heart de-cels, fetal distress, etc that can happen and perhaps it did end up that they said ‘we need to take the baby out now.’ It would have been nice if they waited, but maybe for whatever reason they couldn’t. Perhaps Tom was there after all. I wish we knew more, it’s all kind of running on rumor at this point.

gabriella on

I had a feeling the baby would be born by c-section, especially since it was so overdue. Anyway he was a good weight, not as big as I expected, but still a pretty big baby of almost 8lbs. Too bad Tom didn’t make it in time, can’t wait to hear the baby’s name.

Campbell on

Poor girl… 22 inches sideways. I feel her pain. Thank goodness all are healthy! Certainly the ONLY thing that matters in the end. Congrats to B&T and their families. I’m sure he will be a much loved little fellow.

ST on

Congrats to Bridget on her healthy baby boy. Being a mommy is the best and she will just adore this new little guy. It sounds like the latest rumors are that she is leaning towards Jonathon as the first name.

Karen on

LIKE MANY….I WOULD SURE LIKE TO SEE A PICTURE OF THIS LIL GUY…AND WHAT HIS NAME WILL BE…BUT STARS..LIKE JENNIFER GARNER/BEN AFFLECK…AND OTHERS…DIDN’T LET THEIR BABIES BE PHOTOGRAPHED…UNTIL THEY WERE OLDER…I WONDER HOW BRIDGET FEELS ABOUT PICTURES OF HER BABY BEIN PUBLISHED…….

Karen on

go look at what THE BOSTON HERALD HAS TO SAY……. According to our spies, there is a deal in play to sell the first baby pics of Tom and Bridget’s pigskin prince to one of the glossy magazines – the going price, around $100G!
THIS IS IN THE POST

Sarah’s note: Yes, the post was updated a few minutes ago. It’s all rumor at this point as Bridget’s rep won’t confirm anything. We’ll have to wait and see.

delia on

I bet you he goes back to her…that would be cute…

tink1217 on

so the baby’s name is Jonathan?? If so…LOVE IT!!!! Congrats again to the new parents!!

Sarah’s note: Just a rumor at this point…

Luciana on

They sure should sell the baby’s pics!
Paparazzi will go crazy to get the first shot of the little guy.. and they should not get that much money over a baby!

I can’t wait to see photos of him.. and to finally know his name!!

Steph on

One of the NFL game *Pats vs Panthers* announcers said at the beginning that the baby’s name is John.

Dawna on

Yikes, that might be why her belly looked kind of pointy than round, the baby was sideways! I understand sometimes the baby can be turned during labour, sometimes they don’t. I know all the women that have given birth know what is done to try and turn the baby. Yeeoouuucchhh! That makes me reiterate my previous comment congratulating only Bridget on the safe arrival of her wee one.

Meagan on

For all you Sex & The City fans:
I would find it funny if she named him John cinsidering that was supposed to be Mr. Big’s real name in the show & we all know what happened with that……

Annoyomus on

This is nothing against Tom Brady, but….I am kind of surprised to hear that he was playing at the game tonight. Didn’t he say he wanted to take time off after the baby was born?

Sarah’s note: We hear he’s is headed back to California tomorrow to spend more time with Bridget and the baby. Tonight’s game was very important and he’s the star QB of the team.

Annoyomus on

I also want to say that I am a bit dissapointed that they won’t be giving an interview about there son (this post mentions that they will be releasing photos, but no interview). I thought for sure Bridgett and Tom would love to talk about their little man!

Sarah’s note: We’ll see, it’s all just rumor at this time. I can see why they want to avoid an interview given how private they’ve been about the whole situation. I’m sure we can all guess what most of the questions will be like!

Megan Briano on

I love these hairclips. They are so cute and they actually stay in my daughters hair. They are absolutely wonderful and the only kind of hairclips I will buy.

gabriella on

If the baby’s name is john, I love it. John is a nice strong traditional boy name. I personally love normal strong boy names such as frank, john, joseph, etc, I’m not into the weird out their names people try giving their kids now. As for them not giving an interview, I totally understand why. Given the fact they broke up and bridget was pregnant, I’m sure they don’t wanna answer questions about that. Anyway the pics are the most important thing, just to see how cute he is.

Has on

Exactly, every question will be “How is Giselle handling this? Are you two going to get back together? If not, are you (Tom) and Giselle going to get married? Bridget, how does that make you feel?” Etc. Better to leave the interview off. While I’d like to know the answers, only time will tell. I know if I were in that situation I would want to be left alone as much as possible.

And congratulations to them both, my son was head-up when I was in the early stages of labor, and they were going to have to reposition him. But luckily my MIL gave me advice to get into the bathtub on all fours, warm water running, and arch my back like a cat. I don’t know how it worked but when I went back to the hospital 1 hour later he was perfect!

Sarah on

Their baby was named Jonathan. It was announced at Tom’s game last night.

see: http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20053339,00.html

Sarah’s note: I was watching the game. All it is is the same rumor from the Herald yesterday morning. :) Tom and Bridget have not announced the name themselves or through their reps yet. It may be Jonathan, but we don’t know for sure so we won’t post it as fact until we are 100%.

Dawn on

Congrats to Bridget. I ahve been too anxiously reading your site to see if there have been any updates(babies name, pic ,etc) The name Jonathan Brady Moynahan has a nice ring to it…

Annoyomus on

Dawn- Why not Jonathan Moynahan Brady?

Tara on

I noticed the editors of Vanity Fair couldn’t pass up the chance to sell more magazines by featuring Gisele on its cover. It’s interesting to note that the highlights of her resume include going after another woman’s baby’s daddy and “panty model”. Who’s next for Ms. Bundchen? JFK Jr? Oops she’s too late.

Hardy on

I have always been a huge Tom Brady fan, and I hope Bridget will allow Tom to be a big part of his child’s life. In a perfect world Tom would break up with Gisele after he realized that Bridget and his child were the great loves in his life. If only it would turn out this way.

Karen on

if ..Jonathan…is the right name..does anyone know if Brady is to be used for a middle name..or his last…….

Karen on

STAFF OF THE CELEBRITY BABY BLOG…THANK YOU FOR KEEPING IT CLEAN…I HAVE KNOW IDEA WHY..I LOVE DO HEAR ABOUT CELEBRITIES AND SEE THEIR PICTURES…BUT I DO…AND I SCAN THE WEB…TRYING TO PICK UP ALL THE INFORMATION I CAN…AND SOME SITES HAVE SO MUCH FILTH..EITHER THEY ARE SAYING THINGS ABOUT BRIDGET..OR OTHERS ABOUT TOM….SOME I THINK JUST ENJOY…POSTING FILTH..AND GET A HIGH FROM IT…..I AM NOW WONDERING..IF BRADY IS TO BE A MIDDLE NAME OR HIS LAST NAME…..IT SEEMS…BOTH HAVE A AGREEMENT ..WHERE THEY ARE WORKING TOGETHER…FOR THE BETTER MENT OF THEIR SON…..WHICH WOULD BE HARD FOR SOME PEOPLE TO DO….

T Warren on

I am truly happy for them!! I only hope and pray that this would bring them back and that they would get married so that they could be a real family. Tom and Bridget look soooo beautiful together like a perfect fit. Be Blessed Guys!

Please Guys!!! Get Back Together!!!

Jess on

Making a baby doesn’t make Tom Brady a man. Winning a Superbowl doesn’t make Tom Brady a man. Shelling out thousands of dollars to pay for a nanny doesn’t make Tom Brady a man. Jetsetting across the world does not make Tom Brady a man.

Getting up in the middle of the night to support the mother of his child as she breast feeds, makes him a man. Getting up in the middle of the night to change his son’s diaper or simply to comfort his son when he is crying, makes him a man. Providing emotional and physical support to the mother of his child makes him a man…

Only time will tell if Tom Brady will be a man.

Claudia on

You Tell Them Jess!!

LIZ on

I think its sad to judge someone you don’t know. Saying he isn’t a real man because of articles. when your not even bridget. I mean what if i said oh bridget is not a real women just because she gave birth means nothing we have to wait and see what kind of mother she is and if she supports the babys father and be a positive person in his and heer sons life. I mean that is insulting but since its tom its okay. I mean it can work between the two of them look at will , jada and will’s ex wife it can work

This is from People.com:

Bridget Moynahan is “thankful” for her new son John Edward Thomas Moynahan, her rep tells PEOPLE.

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20053528,00.html

Her rep comments in this aritcle so it looks like it’s pretty official!

Esther on

People.com says they named him John Edward Thomas Moynahan.

Aug 28, 3:29 PM (ET)

BOSTON (AP) -New England quarterback Tom Brady’s newborn son has the initials JET.
Actress Bridget Moynahan announced Tuesday the name of their son – John Edward Thomas Moynahan – saying Brady arrived in Los Angeles in time for the child’s birth last week.

“Bridget is very thankful for a happy baby, excited about being a mother, and very pleased that the father, Tom Brady, was able to be there for the birth,” publicist Gary Mantoosh told The Associated Press.

Moynahan and Brady split up late last year after a three-year relationship. Brady has been dating supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

Brady, 30, has led the Patriots to three NFL titles and is a two-time Super Bowl MVP. New England opens its regular season against the rival New York Jets on Sept. 8.

Mantoosh didn’t give any other details, including the size of the baby or whether Thomas was in honor of his father.

“Both mother and baby are at home, happy and healthy,” he said.

Brady flew to California for the birth and returned to his team a few days later for a preseason game.

Moynahan, 36, is a former model who has starred in films and television shows.

Karen on

Bridget Moynahan is “thankful” for her new son John Edward Thomas Moynahan, her rep tells PEOPLE……..she did exactly what i would have done..gave the baby her name…and i think…she may not expect support from him either…but he may offer

Kat on

LIZ,
I think the fact that the last name of the child is Moynahan says it all in regard to who will be raising this child. It’s a fact acknowledged by both sides that Bridget’s NYC apartment was close to Gisele’s. That makes people raise questions such as, “did she move to LA to get away from Tom and Gisele?”. I don’t think Bridget and Gisele will be the next Will Smith’s ex and Jada Pinkett-Smith. Everything I’ve read just doesn’t point to that and I don’t think Gisele is classy enough for that. I don’t blame Bridget for moving to LA-Tom and Gisele are disgusting. Check out the Myspace page he has. At the top left hand corner it says “it’s a baby boy!” but if you scroll down you’ll see that it says that he “loves children, but not for me” . Therefore, I think we have every right to say that he will not be that involved in the child’s life.

John Edward Thomas Moynahan
Baby full name…according to channel 7 news in Boston.

j.brown on

Hopefully they didn’t mind the announcement of the baby’s name.

MH on

Bridget is so classy. This woman will age well. She is sophisticated and carry herself well. She has a beautiful baby boy! He is too cute for words. She was sad before but I think all that is behind her as she looks at this little person who will be the center of her world. Tom Brady who?

MH on

I wanted to make one more comment on Tom Brady. He is a good-looking guy and seems to be a good guy. He deserves some a lot better than Gisele. I am not a fan of hers. To me, she’s trashy but trying to cover her trashiness with money and her modeling career. Her presence does NOT say “classy” like Bridget does.

I know that he and Bridget are over but come on, guy, you downgraded to Gisele??!
