Tom Brady Received a Congratulatory Tweet From an Unlikely Source — His Eldest Son's Mom

Feb 3 2015 - 2:23pm

When the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl, we knew we'd see a number of congratulatory tweets come their way, but there's one that stuck out from the rest, as it came from Bridget Moynahan, Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady [1]'s ex.

Congratulations to the @Patriots [2]! Sweet #4.

— Bridget Moynahan (@bridgetmoynahan) February 2, 2015 [3]

In early 2007, several weeks after breaking up with Brady, Moynahan learned she was pregnant. By that time, Brady was already dating Gisele Bündchen and the couple had no plans to get back together. Seven years later, there's apparently no hard feelings, as not only did Moynahan cheer on her child's father after his big win, but she's also been seen chatting it up with Bündchen on the sidelines [4] of her son's soccer games and having park playdates with Bündchen and Brady [5] and their son.

Anyone who's been through a divorce (or read a celebrity tabloid) knows just how nasty the process can be. Between custody battles and dividing your assets, some couples turn separation into an all-out war. Yet there are some who manage to put their differences aside and keep the peace for the sake of their children. Check out 10 famous former couples who have played nice despite their divorce.

Demi Moore and Bruce Willis

Perhaps age makes you wiser when it comes to divorce. Though Demi Moore [6] and Bruce Willis [7] split in 2000, they have been spotted together multiple times throughout the years. The two have been especially strong coparents recently, with their daughter Tallulah entering rehab.

Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen

Despite some recent drama, Denise Richards [8] and Charlie Sheen [9] have been on civil terms since their 2006 divorce. In fact, Richards stepped in to care for Sheen's twins in 2013 while their mother, Brooke Mueller, was in and out of rehab and jail.

Kate Hudson and Chris Robinson

In a 2007 interview with People [10], the Wish I Was Here star said the following of her ex-husband:

"When it comes to relationships, unfortunately you've just got to be a grown-up . . . For both Chris and me, our main focus is, and was, Ryder. And happy parents, happy baby. Therefore, I love Chris to pieces."

Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe

After almost 10 years together, Reese Witherspoon [11] and Ryan Phillippe [12] called it quits in 2007, but they still see each other regularly at daughter Ava and son Deacon's sporting events [13] and even bring along their current partners. How copacetic is that?

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz

Though the singers' marriage came to an end in 2011, they still enjoy weekend outings [14] with their son, Bronx.

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony

Despite a somewhat nasty split in 2012, Jennifer Lopez [15] and Marc Anthony [16] manage to keep the peace in front of their twins, Emme and Max. They even get together for playdates [17] once in a while, so the kids can enjoy quality time with both parents.

Courteney Cox and David Arquette

When their marriage ended in 2010, Courteney Cox [18] and David Arquette [19] remained close for their daughter, Coco. In fact, Cox took Coco to see her dad compete on Dancing With the Stars every night in 2011. In an interview with ABC News [20], Arquette said the following about his ex-wife:

"It really was a goal of ours to not make it a fight, to really support each other, and although we'd grown apart to stay connected, to stay friends, to still love each other. I still obviously feel so blessed that I met her and that we have a child together and that she's in my life. She's still one of my closest, greatest friends."

Amy Poehler and Will Arnett

Amy Poehler [21] and Will Arnett [22] haven't let their 2012 separation keep them from being awesome parents to sons Archie and Abel. The comedic actress and actor make sure the family spends the holidays together [23], and in a 2013 interview with Details, Arnett said that his kids come first [24].

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin

After 10 years of marriage, Gwyneth Paltrow [25] and Chris Martin [26] announced last March that they would "consciously uncouple [27]" and continue to raise their children, Apple and Moses, together. So far their plan seems to be working out. Martin purchased a house [28] next door to his ex-wife so he could see his kids regularly, and the actress nominated the Coldplay frontman for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge [29].

Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan

After three years of dating, Tom Brady [30] and Bridget Moynahan broke up, but they would soon learn that they would never be out of each other's lives — weeks later, after Brady had already begun dating Gisele Bündchen, Moynahan learned she was three months pregnant with the ex-couple's son, Jack. Fast-forward seven years, and not only can Moynahan and Bündchen be found on the sidelines of Jack's soccer games [31], but following the Patriots' Super Bowl win, Moynahan tweeted:

The "all-in-this-together" parenting philosophy is one that all of the involved parties have subscribed to. Bündchen told Vanity Fair [34], "I understand that he has a mom, and I respect that, but to me it's not like because somebody else delivered him, that's not my child. I feel like it is, 100 percent." Meanwhile, Moynahan has said [35], "My son has two loving parents in an extended family, whether it's cousins or stepmothers or boyfriends. My son is surrounded by love."
