Tom Brady’s son with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan does not plan to follow in his famous parents’ footsteps. Their son, John Edward Thomas Moynahan, is 9 years old and recently revealed his dream job to his mother.
While Bridget Moynahan was a guest on the show Live With Kelly, she opened up about her son’s interests. She shared, “I think right now he wants to be a professional soccer player,” Moynahan, 45, continued, “Though after the Olympics he’s like, ‘I think I’m going to win a gold in swimming. Then it was Michael Phelps. So I think he just likes awards.”
It seems John inherited his parents’ drive for success, especially as dad Tom Brady is on the brink of completing another Super Bowl. This will be the quarterback’s seventh time competing in the Super Bowl, which is a record for the Nation Football League. If the New England Patriots win this year’s Super Bowl, Tom Brady will become the most decorated quarterback to win the most Super Bowls in the history of the NFL.
Throughout Brady’s successful career, actress Moynahan has stayed supportive of his career and has worked with her ex and his wife Gisele Bündchen to co-parent their son, Jack.
Brady and Moynahan began dating back in 2004. They broke up in December 2006 and People magazine confirmed the breakup by releasing a statement confirming they, “amicably ended their three-year relationship.” Then the break up took a twist when Moynahan discovered she was pregnant in February 2007, according to People magazine but the ex-couple decided to parent John together.
Moynahan has since found love again and remarried businessman Andrew Frankel in 2015. While on Live With Kelly, Moynahan commented on her recent marriage. She shared, “I finally figured it out in my forties that when it works, it works. There doesn’t have to be drama.”
Tom Brady also went on to marry after he fell in love with model Gisele Bündchen. The couple married in February 2009 after dating since December 2006. Brady and Bündchen have a son and a daughter together as well.
