Actress Bridget Moynahan dated New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for three years until they broke up in December 2006, days before she found out that she’s pregnant with their son, Jack. After their separation, Brady started a relationship with supermodel Gisele Bundchen, whom he married in 2009, while Moynahan had to deal with the media after she gave birth.

In her new book, "Our Shoes, Our Selves," Moynahan discusses the difficult time and how she managed to survive it with the help of a pair of shoes. According to Moynahan, she had to avoid cars following her and men hiding in the bushes outside her house.

“As a new mother, you want to just protect your child. That kind of attention felt like a threat,” said Moynahan. While avoiding photographers, she spotted a pair of boots at Barneys and decided to buy it, saying “that’s what I need.”

Through the years, Moynahan said she remained quiet about Brady and Bundchen for the sake of her son. Now, Moynahan is married to Andrew Frankel. Despite the rocky end to their relationship, Moynahan is happy that she and Brady have managed to raise their son together. Also, Moynahan is grateful that she and Brady have found partners are willing to support and love their child as their own.

“I don’t think you can ask for more than that. My son is surrounded by love,” said Moynahan, who was recently criticized by Patriots fans after supporting the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII.

Malcolm Mitchell impressed by Brady’s work ethic

Wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell played just two years for the Patriots before he recently announced his retirement from the NFL due to recurring knee injuries. A fourth-round pick by the Patriots out of Georgia in the 2016 NFL Draft, Mitchell played 14 games in his rookie year, catching 32 passes for 401 yards and four touchdowns.

In Super Bowl LI, Mitchell played a key role in the Patriots’ comeback from a 28-3 deficit as he caught five passes for 63 yards in the fourth quarter en route to a 34-28 overtime win over the Atlanta Falcons. However, he missed all of next season with a knee injury.

Despite his short stay in Foxborough, Mitchell said playing with Brady has left a lasting impression on him because of his commitment to the game.

“What makes him so different is his commitment,” Mitchell said. The wide receiver also thanked head coach Bill Belichick for aiding his development as both a player and a person.

Shannon Sharpe thinks 2019 is Brady’s last season

Hall of Fame tight end Shannon Sharpe, who now co-hosts “Undisputed” on Fox Sports, believes that 2019 will be Brady’s last season in the NFL. According to Sharpe, he doesn’t think that Brady can take any more punishment on his body as he will enter his 20th season at age 42. “Not saying he will miss any time. I believe he’ll have the worst year of his career in the last five or six years,” said Sharpe.
