What Tom Brady's Ex Bridget Moynahan Just Said About Him Going To The Super Bowl Again

Tom Brady had a big win on Jan. 24, 2021. Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers – his new team since leaving the New England Patriots – beat the Green Bay Packers 31-26, per CNNclinching the Buccaneers a spot in Super Bowl LV. It was an especially meaningful win for Brady as he will be heading to his tenth Super Bowl, where he and his team will play against the Kansas City Chiefs and, most notably, fellow quarterback superstar Patrick Mahomes, on Feb. 7, 2021.

There was a touching moment at the end of the game where Brady ran to the stands and asked a security guard, "Can I say hi to my son?" Brady's son Jack, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan, ran down the stairs and hugged his dad. "Love you, kiddo," Brady said as he held his son, per NBC Sports.

After the win, Brady explained how special it was for him that Jack was in the stands. "Doesn't get any better for a dad than that," he said (via NBC Sports). "He was gonna freeze his butt off here, and so I called him on Friday. I said, 'Are you sure you wanna go?' He's like, 'Dad, I wanna go.' For him to be there and to see it just makes it so special for me. I hope it's as special for him as it is for me."

However, it wasn't just Jack who showed support. In fact, Moynahan also shared her joy and had some supportive words for her ex.

Bridget Moynahan congratulated Tom Brady

After news broke that Tom Brady would be playing his tenth Super Bowl, his ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan, and mother to his son, Jack, shared her joy. "Could not be more proud @tombrady said he would do it and he did," Moynahan wrote on Instagram. "Congratulations @buccaneers." She included a photo of the sweet exchange between father and son.

Moynahan and Brady broke up in 2006 after two years of dating, per Us Weekly, and Brady went on to date model Gisele Bündchen. They married in 2009 and share two children, Benjamin and Vivian. As the two families came together, Bündchen and Moynahan had their own journey in accepting each other.

Bündchen also congratulated Brady on the monumental victory on her Instagram Story (via Us Weekly), captioning a photo of Brady with: "We love and are so proud of you, papai!!!" She also added a cute shot of Brady hugging Jack, so obviously there's a lot of love and support from all sides as this blended family shares this mega-victory.

Fans praise Bridget Moynahan for her co-parenting

Fans absolutely loved Bridget Moynahan's praise for her ex and the father of her child, Tom Brady. When she shared the congratulatory post on Instagram, people couldn't help but reach out to say how touched they were by her message and their positive example of co-parenting. Moynahan married businessman Andrew Frankel in 2015, according to Page Six, while Brady has a high-profile marriage to Gisele Bündchen. So they've obviously had to learn the art and balance of co-parenting.

"This is the best," one person wrote on Moynahan's post, adding a heart emoji. "[G]reat player and dad! You are a great role model for all co-parents!" Another person noted Moynahan's willingness to praise Brady and said, "Huge of you and love your journey of respect for each other." Another person wrote, "You are a true example of co-parenting. Class act."

Despite this obvious message of support, have Moynahan and Brady always had an easy relationship?

Bridget Moynahan and Tom Brady's rocky road to co-parenting

Things haven't always been easy for Bridget Moynahan and Tom Brady. They split in 2006, but months after their breakup, she revealed that she was pregnant with his child, according to Harper's Bazaar, and at that point, Brady had already started dating Gisele Bündchen. According to People, the experience was a challenging one for Moynahan, as she faced public scrutiny and unwanted attention, especially while Brady's life buzzed with news of his brand-new relationship.

However, as time passed and both Moynahan and Brady found and remained in relationships of their own, Moynahan has positive things to say about the situation and the life her son, Jack, gets to live. "Tom and I made a decision to raise a child together and we both found partners that not only supported us in raising that child, but also loved our child as if he was their own," Moynahan told People in April 2019. "I don't think you can ask for more than that. My son is surrounded by love."

That's definitely something to celebrate, perhaps even more so than Brady's return to the Super Bowl. Though, obviously, we're excited for him on that front too!
