Moynahan's camp says the supermodel's mommy claims were over the line.
As we reported earlier this week, Gisele Bundchen is taking to her new life as a stepmother like a supermodel takes to hot and heavy romance with a football player who's already got a girlfriend that's knocked up with his kid.
Bundchen, who began dating New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in December of 2006 and married him on February 2009, is loving playing stepmom to Brady's son so much, in fact, that she doesn't even see a difference between her role in the baby's life, and Bridget Moynahan's (the boy's actual mother and Tom's ex).
In the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine, Bundchen refers to 20-month-old John Edward Thomas Moynahan as "100 percent my child" and adds that: "It’s not like because somebody else delivered him, that's not my child. I love him the same way as if he were mine. I already feel like he's my son, from the first day . . . He's my little angel — the sweetest, most cuddly, loving baby."
Well, it seems that Bundchen's remarks have, as expected, not met with Bridget Moynahan's approval. In fact, Page Six reports that she's "furious."
One "close pal" told the gossip rag that: "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."
The friend goes on to say: "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."
You'd think so. Though, from what we understand, asking a quarterback to make his wife shut up is like asking a supermodel not to sleep with a man who already has a girlfriend that's knocked up with his kid.
But we digress.
