Bridget Moynahan spends $20 on Gisele Bundchen & complains about it

It’s no secret that there is absolutely no love lost between Bridget Moynahan and Gisele Bundchen. We can fight about who left, who got pregnant and for what purpose, sketchy timelines, all of it. But at the end of the day, here’s what we know: Tom Brady and Bridget share a son, John, now 2 years old. Fact: Gisele is pregnant with her first child, with Tom Brady. Fact: Gisele is a little too effusive when describing her relationship with baby John. Fact: Gisele has referred to John as “my child” and has called herself John’s “adoptive mother”. Here’s what else we know: Bridget’s friends run to the press with lots of bitchy comments. Stuff like Gisele is “desperate for attention” and “discretion and respect are not either of Gisele or Tom’s virtues”.

So perhaps it was never going to be one big happy family. But they’re trying, y’all! Bridget is attempting to passively-aggressively bury the hatchet now that Gisele is knocked up – by buying Gisele’s unborn child a $20 outfit:

“What do you buy your ex’s pregnant new wife?” Bridget Moynahan quipped at Wonderland baby store in Brentwood, CA on July 2.

The actress – whose former squeeze Tom Brady is expecting a little one with his new missus, supermodel Gisele Bundchen – said she didn’t want to spend much on a gift.

“Bridget settled on a neutral-colored outfit that cost around $20,” a source tells Star. “But she acted like even that was too much!”

[From Star Magazine, print edition, July 27 2009]

Haha, Bridget is so cold! It would have been awesome if Bridget just gave Gisele one of John’s old binkies. Bridget would have arched her eyebrow and quipped with a straight face, “Suck on that, Gisele.” No, in all honesty, I get it. I wouldn’t blame Bridget if she didn’t want to get Gisele and Tom anything for the new baby. But going the cheap route is pretty funny. Perhaps Bridget let John barf on the outfit before she gift-wrapped it.

    I like Bridget more.

  2. Ginger says:

    I think the only Biaatch here is Gisele. She dated someone who was in a relationship and his girlfriend was knocked up. I will spend a dollar on a present if I was in Bridget shoes. So, Bridget really clearly did her best here to be the better person. I wonder what Gisele bought Bridget when she delivered and remember even if Gisele bought a $500 present for the baby it was only to make Tom to love her more nothing to do with the kid. Bridget should not even worry. Her Son is Tom’s 1st Child and 1st son there is nothing that Gisele can do about it he he

  3. j. ferber says:

    At least she’s trying. In her shoes, I’d want to ignore the whole thing, focus on my son and getting on with my life (other men, my career). But she does need a relationship with those two because of her son, and that’s forever. Easier to move on when you don’t have to deal with the people constantly. But I think she did okay. That child will be her son’s half-sibling and Bridget can then make bitchy comments about how the new baby is her child, too. Team Bridget.

  4. Girl says:

    Gisele never said “adoptive mother” – that was a mistranslation from the interview done in Portugese.
    And yes, what a horrible woman she is for loving her step-son.
    Also, if this story is true – which I don’t believe it is – Bridget Moynahan is a real bitch and needs to move on!

  5. Bodhi says:

    Haha! I wouldn’t have gotten them anything at all.

  6. Sandra says:

    I would love for my child’s stepmother to treat him as if he were her child. Rather than the evil stepmother.

  7. PrincessJay says:

    Gisele is a home-wrecker in my eyes. He left his pregnant gf to be with you, what makes you think he won’t do it to you too?

  8. OXA says:

    I do not blame Bridget for not wanting to spned money on the new wife’s kid, Who knows that Gisele wont throw it in the trash anyway, or maybe it is a gift from the kid John and we know he dont have much of an allowance at 2.

  9. Lindsay says:

    No, Actually they broke up and then he started dating Giselle and then Bridget found out she was pregnant.

    Giselle didn’t homewreck. What did Bridget expect? That they would do like every other couple and make a go of it for the baby? They would have broken up regardless. Sometimes I wonder if she didn’t “forget” to take her birth control and to save the relationship through one.

  10. Kait says:

    I guess I don’t get why people are up in arms about this. OMG! How dare she love her step son! That’s terrible!

    I think everyone is doing a reasonable job in a crappy situation but Bridget strikes me as a total bitch. I could be wrong on that but she really does. I thought Gisele looked like one too but seeing her out with Tom and John has changed my mind on her.

  11. kai says:

    I hope the three of them are more mature than the tabloid-reading public. They are a FAMILY after all, exes or not.

  12. YT says:

    Bridget’s biggest problem is that the paps follow Gisele more and therefore take more photos of John with Gisele than John with Bridget.

    Tacky gift-giving. The press on a gift was not necessary.

    Agree with Lindsay on the sequence of the relationships.

  13. truth says:

    bridge needs to grow up. she had a “save the relationship” baby. however the relationship with tom was already dead and buried. so what did bridge expect — tom and gigi would not have any kids. they got married and naturally they would try for children. bridge WISH she was married so she is acting out like a typical BABY MAMA. Ghetto to the core. Grow up bridge. gigi loves your son and treats him very well. be happy for them and find your own man. seriously has she even been out on a date since having john? i bet she was hoping that tom and gigi would break up.

  14. Dee says:

    Moynahan never imagined that she’d wind up a yummy mummy without a hubby. “I’m not sure anyone — and I could be wrong in this — grows up thinking, I want to be a single mom,” she says. She had dated Brady for three years, but in February 2007 she found herself in a complicated situation. She was three months pregnant with his child but no longer in a relationship with him. Though she says, “There’s no reason why my son years down the line would need to read anything [personal] about his mother or his father,” it’s common knowledge that Brady has since moved on with Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen, 27. Meanwhile, Moynahan is raising her son alone (though Brady does spend time with Jack).

    “Going through that traumatic time of being heartbroken and then being pregnant turned my whole life upside down and inside out and just knocked the wind out of me,” says Moynahan. “But I got so much out of that. It’s golden and it’s tough and it was fucked up. But now I have a child, and it’s the best thing in the world.”

  15. Dee says:

    Apparently, she wasn’t alone in that assessment: Moynahan found herself dating at around the six-month mark. “I couldn’t believe how many times I was asked out!” she says. “

  16. Codzilla says:

    $20 for one newborn-sized outfit doesn’t seem cheap to me. But then again, Hollywood is a different universe when it comes to, well, pretty much everything.

  17. Dee says:

    They were on and off she totally got pregnant to trap Tom and “help him” make up his mind about settling down its so fkn obvious! hellooooooo she’s 36 she wanted to settle down and thought he would too after she got knocked up. Giselle is not a home wrecker get your facts straight.

  18. Rosanna says:

    BM needs to move on! She got pregnant trying to settle, TB didn’t fall for it, and GB doesn’t have sh*t to do with it. And, a loving mother would be over the moon knowing that her kid’s step-mom adores him. So, guess who’s the b*tch????

  19. Tia C says:

    This story makes Bridget sound like a tacky bitter bitch. This is the first story about this triangle I’ve read that portrays her in that light. Too bad, I would’ve thought she’d be moving on and letting all that go by now. She probably is, it’s just a dumb story lol.

  20. westindya says:

    Y Y Y does everyone always blame the other woman????? Giselle didn’t MAKE Tom leave Bridget, people. Furthermore, if she cannot give her son’s brother a gift with good intentions it is BEST not to give him a gift at all.

    The two kids will have to grow up together and the parents should GROW UP as well. What the hell!!!

  21. Iggles says:

    Omg! I’m sick of the people who assume Bridget had “save the relationship baby”. There is no proof of that. It takes tow to tango. If Tom didn’t want to dance he should have not had intercourse with her!

    And for all the people who think Giselle is just a lovely stepmother: If your relationship breaks up and your kids’ stepmother acts like Giselle don’t complain!

    She’s been a nasty b***h to Bridge from the moment she got her claws on Tom. He’s no prize! If he treats his pregnant ex so disrespectfully, how do you think he’s gonna treat you after YOU TWO break up? Ladies, stop the hate, stop the self denial (“No, he won’t treat me that way”), and wake the fcuk up!

  22. bros says:

    supposedly bridget and her son were present for giselle and tom’s ceremony in the US (not the one in costa rica). they cant all hate eachother that much if they invited her to the ceremony and she accompanied her son.

  23. Obvious says:

    After GB gives birth lets lock GB and BM in a room together and let them work it out.

    Then maybe they’ll pull a Bruce and Demi.
    Now that was the perfect divorce.

  24. RubyKaur says:

    She would be better off buying Giselle some class.

  25. Salina says:

    You can totally tell who the homewrecking hos’ are on this site, they all stick togather and try to validate their so called “reasoning” for getting involved with men who apperently have JUST BROKEN UP! oh please!! If you know its complicated from the get go why even bother, there’s plenty men to go around.

  26. Katharine Jaynes says:

    In my opinion Bridget needs to get over it. She has a beautiful son, and he will always be hers, no matter what Gisele says in silly interviews.

    If she could take a step back she would see that for her child, it is much better to have a loving, kind, wealthy step-mother, than some evil heartless wench.

    The gift is a step in the right direction, it really doesn’t matter what she spends on it because money is not an issue for these people, it’s ironically the thought that counts here. But Bridget’s running commentary on Tom and Gisele is getting pretty stupid. Get over it!

  27. Moore says:

    Iggles, why would anyone complain about a step mother who loves their child like her own child considering the alternative? How incredibly rude of her!

    Since when has he been disrespectful to Bridget? They broke up and she found herself pregnant. What? Because he didn’t run back to her? I’ve not heard him bad mouth her to the press. Yeah it takes two to tango but he takes care of his child and thats what should matter. No one owes Bridget anything let alone a relationship. She should get over that if she hasn’t.

  28. Sunnyjyl says:

    I love shopping for babies so, even if I hate you, you are going to get a really nice gift. Back to topic, she should get something nice for her child’s half sibling.

  29. avdotia says:

    I totally agree with salina; I can´t believe you guys, leaving a message supporting gisele…you are just like her? She is b*tch, and heartless for getting involve with a man who had a steady relationship, (pleasee he was still with BM; obviusly was bad press and he had to denied it)and even so you just can´t leave your long term pregnant girlfriend just for a fling

  30. wow says:

    I imagine that must be a difficult situation to be in. Maybe this is Bridgette’s way of trying to be cordial since Giselle treats her son like her own.

  31. nnn says:

    I think everyone who badmouth either woman should get over it and take a good look at themselves. Both have or will have children of the same man, children who will forever be bound sharing the same blood.

    Badmouthing, even insulting one of being a h0, when noone in here was involved, when this married woman is about to have a child only show that there are cynical and juvenile people in here.

    They are adults in a difficult yet current situation we notice these days in recomposed families. They should sort out any problem they may have because there are children involved and insulting one or taking side is not going into that direction.

    Gisèle is now married to Tom, she is bearing his child. Maybe she will bear more. If Bridget doesn’t have another one, her son would have Gisèle’s children as only siblings.

    Life is too short for pettiness and biterrness when children are involved. Chosing team X versus team Y is the most destructive and idiotic thing to do for children who would grow up as siblings and who would not certainly want to hear that the media and fans/haters are pitting both mothers against each other.

    Life is so impredictable that one day one may become ill and will be required some transplant of his half sibling. One parent may prematurely disappear and will be raised by the other one. Or Tom may disappear and children may be separated, not see each other anymore because their mothers don’t have that link anymore and can’t rely on a mature cordial feeling between the two of them.

    Feeding antagonsim, bitterness in this difficult situation is counterproductive and stupid.

  32. miwi says:

    OMGosh the 40 year old D-lister is still holding grudges????? (wow b, youre gonna get tons of wrinkles and jowls from scowling and being miserable so often)

    wow so she annonced she was preggers month and months after Tom and her broke up? so what, let me get this straight, Tom wasnt allowed to move on and find a new girlfriend? ummm, happens everyday to regualr people, LOL

    Tom moved on (dont blame him, everyone needs a little upgrade from time to time) but besides all that, I think Bitchget is acting real immature, for God’s sake this is going to be little Johns sibling. Let me guess shes going to be one of those bad mothers who tells her kids to hate everyone instead of loving them???? sounds like it, those people make the worst mothers I swear. Get over your bitter ways, and dont pass it on to your innocentt child, or dont have any kids at all!

    plus i think the media really likes to play up this sroty, i mean everyone loves to hate on the beautiful,popular,rich couple in highschool right?

  33. gross says:

    I think the childish mentality of some people here is SO SAD. We don’t know these people. Bridget dated Tom, then they split up and she found herself pregnant. HOW is Giselle a homewrecker? No one is at fault here. Why are people hating on Giselle? Let me guess–jealousy. What an ugly emotion. It turns people into bitter little children.

  34. Aspen says:

    My stepmother has always been important to me. I cannot imagine having grown up with my father’s wife not treating me like her own kid. It’s bad enough going from home to home. I fault Gisele for dating a man who had a baby on the way with his girlfriend.

    That’s all over and done with, however, and I don’t understand the negativity towards her “effusive” affection for her stepson. Let’s hope it remains too effusive for everyone after her bio child is born.

    I am still very close to my stepmother. I applaud any woman who shows kindness and genuine affection to her husband’s children.

  35. David says:

    Gisele is a man!

  36. Megan says:


  37. hmm says:

    There is a bit of revisionist history going on in some of the comments. It is well documented that Tom and Bridget had broken up before he became involved with Gisele, so to call her names is a bit childish and totally wrong. I say good for Gisele, that she is able to love another woman’s child so completely and I hope that Bridget is able to be as loving towards the new child. Getting pregnant is not a guarantee that a man will marry you and I say good for him that he didn’t give in to that pressure and marry a woman that he clearly didn’t want to. I’m sure it hurt her feelings but it’s beyond time to move on and I hope for her son’s sake that she has.

  38. TaylorB says:

    Please don’t mind me being a cheepskate here but $20 seems perfectly reasonable for a baby outfit. First of all babies mess up clothes almost the instant you put it on them, and secondly it will only fit for a few months anyway. Most new moms I know would rather have $20 worth of inexpensive onsies, a gift card for diapers, or just for someone to babysit for a few hours so they can get a rest.

  39. CeeJay says:

    Really unbelieveable how totally involved some of you get picking sides in these celebrity triangle relationships. I can only guess that you equate the situation with something similar to what you have either experienced or are experiencing? Otherwise, why get so emotionally invested in the whole thing…and yes, some of these posts are WAY over emotional for a celebrity website comment board! Chill out folks. Start living your own lives and enjoy this celebrity gossip for what it is meant to be, an occassional escape from your own daily grind and a coffee break peak into the world of people who live differently than you.

    Some of these posts are so over-dramatic that I have to assume that they are from friends of either Giselle or Bridgette? If they are not and you are out and out strangers, then you have dull, dull lives and/or little in your own lives that captures your emotions. Imagine how great your own relationships could be if your invested as much energy?

  40. nina says:

    The only ones who are ‘ho’es’ are the ones who get pregnant on purpose to “save a relationship”. A 36 year old woman does not get pregnant ‘by mistake’. Gisele acts more than graciously with this bitter clingy loser b*tch, who looks 50 at 48. Yikes.

  41. susan says:

    Bridget will have to share John with Gisele as long as they are married. Gisele will not have to share her child with bridget. Plus Gisele has Tom. LOL!

  42. paranel says:

    How cheap can you get? some of these celebrities surprise me with their lack of generosity when they make millions of $$$ doing next to nothing. Hey, you can’t take it with you. Enjoy and share.

  43. Zoe (The Other One) says:

    LOL – I’d have given Giselle a slap in the chops, just because she’s an annoying bag.

  44. Anna says:

    let’s blame the man for once y’all . He was the one who left knocked up girl in the first place

  45. yep! says:

    And we all take the word from a Tabloid Star Magazine as gospel!!!

  46. Gigohead says:

    Looks to me the only sour ones here is the store that leaked out the information on the purchase.

    Perhaps the outfit wasn’t for Gisellle since they technically haven’t made it official yet, since it’s still early.

    That’s a shame that not even stores can protect your privacy. That’s my beef.

    Don’t care about either of these two gals.

  47. Julie says:

    I’m sorry but Bridget is a Bitch. She needs to grow up and get over it. This is her Son’s father and always will be. She needs to be the bigger person for her son and should at least be grateful that Giselle loves him. He will soon be old enough to sense and understand Mommy’s bitterness and it just puts him in an awkward position.

  48. Tracey says:


  49. FRANCINE says:


  50. Tia says:

    I know it’s hard some time, but i’d probably just try to move on and get over it. I can’t see myself using so much time and energy being bitter and angry. It seems cheap shots are being taken on both sides. Tom should just try and keep the 2 seperate or make peace. The kid is watching and learning from the adults!

  51. Gina says:

    Here’s what else we know: Bridget’s friends run to the press with lots of bitchy comments. Stuff like Gisele is “desperate for attention” and “discretion and respect are not either of Gisele or Tom’s virtues”.


  52. Kelli says:

    What’s the deal ladies….slow day or slow life?

    You people act as if you know these three
    personally…How very pathetic is that?

    Stop living vicariously through the celebs and realize that life truly begins when you get one!!

  53. Fabi says:

    Giselle is the bigger person here. She not only treats John with love but is willing to include him in her life with Tom without hesitation. What she said in portuguese was taken way out of context. Bridget looks like a real bitch by purchasing a gift and talking about it. Congratulations Tom you were wise to move on with a nicer person. Giselle I pray your baby is healthy, do not let this bitch or her malignancy touch the kids.

  54. Fiestarter says:

    Please! Giselle is a bitch, always has been. To other models and to other women in general. She is known to be rude to wait staff at restaurants, clerks at stores and to various people in the modeling industry. I know, because I work in that industry, not as a model, but as a stylist. She has a very big impression of herself and other than Naomi Campbell, I cannot think of anyone else who is more unpleasant to work with.

    Frankly Tom Brady, as brainless as he is and Giselle deserve one another. Bridget should be glad to be rid of him, and for all those who say that Bridget should be glad to have someone love her son, if it weren’t Giselle, that would be true. Giselle, however, only has spoken of her love of the child publicly, so as to appear a nice woman. The fact is, she does anything to keep Tom’s attention, and if that means faking her love of Tom’s child with Bridget, then she will do it.

  55. PAT says:

    Get real all you bleeding hearts. Tom is scum . I am a Patriot fan but he has let success go to his head. Typiclal male think they rule .Setting great example for his son. Do you really think Bridget shud fawn all over Gissell and new kid.

  56. michele says:

    They are not ‘family’. The only common denominator here is the 2 year old son, John, that Bridget and Tom had. Bridget is not ‘family’ to Tom or Giselle and Giselle is not ‘family’ to John or Bridget. They should be cordial, to each other, for the sake of the child, but, they don’t have to give each other baby gifts or the like. Now, Giselle may have to ‘give’ more in the sense that Tom has visitation with John, but, Bridget doesn’t have to do a thing when it comes to Tom and Giselle’s baby! I think she did damn good by buying a present for the new baby. I wouldn’t have bought a thing! Now if that’s ‘bitchy’, then so be it!

  57. tt says:

    this is sad….cuz it happens every day. i think bridget got pregnant on purpose…but i disagree that it makes her look like a ho…why? women do it all the time trust me, i know a few although they wont admit it. women have children for lots of reasons most of the time, most of the time its not for the simple joy of…bringing a child in this world. i think if u have a baby to solve relationship problems…its gonna cause u way more problems, and u might end up resenting the baby! so…not a good idea i my book.

    as for gisele being a homewrecker…idk. i used to believe in women being homewreckers but now i think that you cant make men leave ANYBODY unless he wants to. most of the time a man will have his wife and his lover and NEVER leave the wife, EVER! trust me ive seen it…they wont leave the wife unless they want to!

  58. bridgeRulez says:

    gisselle is a ugly horsefaced could she be with a man who left his misses pregnant? that must have been so hard for bridget im so glad she didnt allow him in her room and im glad she put her last name instead of tom’s. where is gissells’s morals. if he did that to bridget he will surely do that to her where is her self respect?. bridget is so beautiful even w/out make-up gisselle is all body but no face her face looks like a man…tom must be blind. gisselle needs to shut the f–k up about john its not her baby no matter how bad she wishes she could have had his 1st son she didnt…i cant stand this stupid over rated b*tch!!!

    team bridget she is the beautifull one…

  59. diva88 says:

    Think about how it would feel to be in Bridget’s shoes. Besides, what’s the last thing she’s worked in? $20 is just trying to be frugal.

    Tom and Gisele handled this really badly with the timing (just like Brangelina), but I still can’t hate Tom Brady. He did a guest spot on Family Guy!

  60. DeCe says:

    bridget is the BIATCH. tom told her he didn’t want to want to marry her of have a family. she did admit to tom that her pregnancy was NOT an accident and if tom had known she went off the pill i’m 200% sure he would have worn a condom!!!she has pushed tom right into giseles arms, sha has made all the wrong decisions. i can’t believe that she actually thought that robbing the cradle, that the cream of the crop would marry her.LOL tom married the woman of his dreams, the love of his life the one he lives for, you people don’t matter, it’s america and he chose gisele. that’s all that matters. he married her twice, spritually and legally. that says it all!!!

  61. maria says:

    BRIDGET has the most beautiful face ever and a strong heart and spirit. GO GISELLE, lets just wish that ugly faced brazilian bitch get tan in HELL, and TOM BRADY? lets just wait for NFL season when horses step all over him. heartless stupids, but move one! Congrats with Ramona and Beezus. Stay beautiful and SUCCESSFUL and show those two uglies!!!
