“I wanted to experience the transformation. It was the most amazing experience of my life, feeling him come through my body. And once he was born, I never felt so empowered as looking at him and thinking, Oh, my God, we did it together!” – Gisele on the birth of her son.

“[The birth was] a wonderful experience in my life. I didn’t get much sleep last night.” –  Tom after experiencing the birth of his son.

“The arrival of a grandson always brings happiness to the grandfather.” – Gisele’s father Valdir after learning about the birth of his grandson.

“It’s wonderful. Never in my life I thought I could love like this. You hear people talking about it, but you don’t know until it happens to you. I couldn’t be happier.” – Gisele on the joys of first time motherhood.

“They’re great young boys. As many kisses as I can give ‘em, I give ‘em. They’re such a great part of my life. To wake up every morning and see those kids, and see them on game day, there’s nothing better.These kids are the light of my life. I always want to be a good parent to them… and win a lot of football games too.” – papa Tom on his two sons.

“But you’re not talking about a tragic event. You’re talking about a life. It’s what happens. And that’s forced me to grow up in a lot of ways, and in a lot of ways I’ve learned about the people around me, learned about my wife and about how important she is in my life, through this. You see what she’s really about. Because that’s not what she wanted either. That’s not how you envisioned your life, that’s not how you envisioned having children, but it happens. Life is not living in the suburbs with a white picket fence. That’s not life. Somehow our American culture has made it out that that’s what life needs to be—and that if it’s not that, it’s all screwed up. It’s not. You go through life and you try the best you can.” – Tom on having Benjamin before marriage.

I thought they were married before they had Benjamin? Is that last quote about John?


It’s VERY important to note that that final quote from Tom was referring to his eldest son Jack’s (John) impending arrival with his ex Bridget Moynahan. The “she” Tom was speaking of was Gisele as she and he had only been dating a few short months when Bridget announced her pregnancy (at about 3 mos along). Gisele stuck with him through it all (hence the “It’s not what she wanted either…”) Benjamin was born long after they had married. How could you get that so grossly wrong People??


Because having a baby out of wedlock is SO VERY GROSSLY WRONG, right Jess? Dude, come on, it’s 2013. That kind of thinking is totally archaic.


I hope John never reads his comment (it’s not what she wanted either meaning HE didn’t want him, nor did she…). Children are a blessing, and they should always feel like they were wanted even under the most difficult of circumstances.
