Gisele Bundchen made headlines earlier this week when she was quoted in Vanity Fair about how connected she feels to Tom Brady's son, Jack. Today, a close friend of Tom's ex and Jack's mother Bridget Moynahan struck back. An excerpt from the statement is below, as well as Gisele's original quote, but the Moynahan camp took the chance to call out both Tom and Gisele's behavior. Check out both sides:
- Gisele originally said: "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 it is, 100 percent. I want him to have a great relationship with his mom, because that’s important, but I love him the same way as if he were mine. I already feel like he's my son, from the first day."
- Bridget's camp responds: "If Gisele loved Bridget's child like he was '100 percent her own,' then she would not talk about him in the press. Discretion and respect are not either of Gisele or Tom's virtues, as was evidenced even when the child was still unborn and they publicly flaunted their relationship without any discretion whatsoever. Don't you think Jack will grow up and read her comments and find them disrespectful to him and his mother? If Tom is such a great father as everyone likes to say, then you would think that he'd respect the privacy of his young child and would ask his wife not to use his son as a publicity prop and a subject of public discussion. Is she so desperate for attention that she can't find anything more productive to talk about other than Bridget's child?"
While the situation is not black or white, tell us — do you think Gisele was out of line or that Bridget's camp is overreacting?
