Motherhood hasn’t gone exactly according to plan for actress Bridget Moynahan, but in a new interview with More magazine, she says she has absolutely no regrets. The beautiful Blue Bloods star opens up about her life as a single mom to her 3-year-old son Jack – and dishes on her relationship with her ex Tom Brady and his wife Gisele Bundchen.
Though their split was the topic of a lot of tabloid talk, Bridget says that she and Tom have worked to maintain a positive relationship for the sake of their son.
“I never made a comment about Gisele or Tom publicly. I have a relationship with these people on a daily basis,” she says, adding, “My son has two loving parents and an extended family, whether it’s cousins or stepmothers or boyfriends. My son is surrounded by love.”
The boyfriend in question would be Charlie’s Angels director Joseph “McG” McGinty Nichol – the pair have been dating since last year.
“He’s witty, he’s smart, he’s incredibly funny, he’s got incredible taste, and he comes from a great family,” Bridget gushes, revealing that they met on an airplane. And, most importantly, she adds, “He and Jack have a great relationship.”
Though life is going well these days, Bridget admits that being a single mom can be hard.
“[Tom] was not in the [delivery] room,” she recalls – the pair split during her pregnancy. “He was there on that day and came in afterwards. He certainly wasn’t holding my hand while I pushed.”
Revealing that she felt a lot of anxiety in those early days, Bridget says that she relied on the support of friends and family: “Every time my dad mentioned he had to go [home to Massachusetts], I’d start crying.”
It may not always be easy, but the 39-year-old actress insists she doesn’t regret any of it.
“[I don’t think] any girl grows up dreaming of being a single mom,” she tells More, but quickly adds, “There’s not a second I regret having a child on my own.”
