John_moynahanHappy Birthday John Edward Thomas Moynahan. You are now one year old!

Name: John Edward Thomas Moynahan

Birthday: August 22nd, 2007

Famous for: John ‘Jack’ Moynahan is famous for being the son of model/actress Bridget Moynahan and New England Patriots QB Tom Brady.

Continue reading for more on the cute little boy who could one day be a model or athlete!

Even though his parents split before the pregnancy was announced, John spends time with both his parents. Tom currently resides on the East Coast and visits California, often with girlfriend Gisele Bundchen, and they have been spotted out and about with the young tot. While John is the first child for both Bridget and Tom, Bridget has expressed her desire to have more children, and with Tom having dated Gisele since December 2006, who knows what the future holds?

Describing her favorite sound as her "son’s laugh," Bridget seems to have settled into motherhood this past year, calling it "fantastic" and saying that it has "changed her life." She added that "it’s the most amazing thing. I couldn’t be happier." For his part, Tom says that his son is "truly a joy."

While Bridget says that she obviously never planned to be a single mother, but when she discovered she was pregnant, she felt "100 percent sure that she could do it." She added,

I’m not sure anyone — and I could be wrong in this — grows up thinking, I want to be a single mom…You really have to weigh out all the pros and cons and how it will fit into your life professionally, spiritually, and emotionally.

As mentioned, Bridget has said that she’d "love" to have more children, and while she knows she is capable of raising Jack on her own, she hasn’t given up hope on finding someone to share the experience with. However, the desire to find someone to be in a relationship with won’t come at the expense of her son — Bridget added that she thinks it is "important to have a strong male figure in my son’s life."

Happy Birthday Jack!

and before it starts, can this PLEASE not turn into a hate thread about Tom Brady? None of us know anything about the situation or how much Tom sees him to be judgmental.

Jack is a very common nickname for John. It is the equivalent of someone named Francis going by Frank or Frankie.

This little boy is soo adorable!! Happy Birthday Jack!

My older brothers name is John and my mom used to call him “Jack” when he was a baby. My sister and I would find pictures and on the back would say “Jack” or “jackie” and for years we were convinced we had another brother by the name of “Jack”

I also like the nickname “jack”…My son’s name is Jacob and I call him “jack”…it seems like it has an old time sound to it and you don’t hear it as much often nowadays. Bridget is doing an awesome job raising this happy little boy. My son Jack and Bridget’s Jack are a month apart and I know how hard raising a child can be and I really salute all single moms out there. recent pics of him, I noticed that his hair grew thicker and such a sweet-looking boy.

John F Kennedy was always known as Jack. John F Kennedy Jr was “John” or “Johnny” to his mother. Caroline Kennedy named her son Jack in honour of her father.

Happy birthday little Jack Moynahan. Your mother is doing a terrific job.

As a single mom of one I can say job well done but it’s a shame that they didn’t try for a least a year after the baby was born.
