Was Bridget Moynahan shady on Twitter during the Super Bowl?

'America Inside Out with Katie Couric' Premiere

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy vintage-scandal-tinged gossip as much as the next person. Knowing the history of who slept with whom and who got pregnant and who left said pregnant lady makes for a richer gossiping experience. But also: it’s been 12 years since Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan were together. I could see that there would still be huge gossip potential if the whole pregnant-and-abandoned thing happened just a few years ago, but these days… everybody has moved on. Bridget is happily married, Tom is happily married, and everybody co-parents like adults and it’s fine. But everybody still waits to see what Bridget is going to say or tweet whenever Tom wins another Super Bowl. And this year, she kept it brief:

She tweeted that before Julian Edelman got the MVP award, so it was more about Bridget understanding which Patriot did the most for the team, as opposed to her being “shady” and saying Tom was undeserving.

Now, all that being said, Bridget did retweet this:

The whole “I’m tired of the Patriots” thing – I feel that. I feel that so much. They’re exhausting. I have a similar feeling with ageing tennis players who are still murdering the next-gen guys – why is so difficult for the young guys to get their asses in gear and beat these old dudes? Tom Brady is 41 years old!! It shouldn’t be THIS difficult. But was it shady for Bridget to retweet that? Eh. Again, it’s been 12 years. She’s tired of all of this too.

    She’s gorgeous! That’s all I’ve got. Well, I guess one more thing, this vintage gossip story has always been of interest to me.

    • I was just thinking the same thing, Bridget is such a beauty. I’ve always thought the whole gossip story was sad because it involves an innocent child. Also because a lot of people seem to still think it’s okay to accuse a woman of ‘trapping’ a man, like men don’t know how babies are made. Ick.

    • Dana Marie says:

      Came to say the same thing! Wow! She looks stunning in that pink gown!! What a beautiful lady.

  2. Idiotsgalore says:

    I suspect he did her real dirty when he found out she was pregnant. She’s always seemed to hold onto some bitterness. That’s coming from somewhere.

    • Kittycat says:

      Or maybe she’s jealous he moved on and is happy.

      Not everything is legit.

      • Spicecake38 says:

        I don’t think jealousy is the factor,but I think they struggled a little in the earlier years with the co parenting between Bridget and Tom,with Giselle being not so subtle about being THE wife no?I really don’t remember or care that much.
        I don’t have the strong hate some have for NE patriots,Tom Brady or Giselle,but I get the feeling that Giselle could be hard to deal with.She and Tom can seem a little smug to me,and I’ll just say that as much as I’m sure they are all pretty good at parenting and dealing with each other in a polite way I would bet they can be exhausting for Bridget.Just a hunch….

    • SamC says:

      How? They had broken up a few times and had been split for awhile when she found out she was expecting. Seems he took responsibility and is an involved parent and they all seem to have moved on a coparent just fine.

      • Bryn says:

        I guess that isn’t dramatic enough for people. Apparently it’s hard to believe that the adults are acting like adults.

    • DP says:

      No matter what, that situation would not have been easy to handle.

    • Jegede says:


      Yeah not everything’s legit.

      She did a shady tweet last year too.

      As much as ‘everyone’s happy now’ is the go-to narrative over the Tom-Gisele-Bridget farrago; Bridget’s subtle digs make me wonder.🤔🤔

      Even more so with this 2nd tweet she like.
      Moynnahan’s Bostonian herself (I think), so I expected here to stan like Chris Evans, Patriots ride-or-die to the end.🤷‍♀️

      • M says:

        Yeah, she’s Bostonian. There was a period of time where everyone (I’m from there) hated him because she was a local version of America’s Sweetheart and people were outraged about how things went down. But then he kept winning and life moves on. Of course, I’m a gossip fan rather than a sports fan, so maybe the majority of folks didn’t hate him?? but at least amongst some folks the dialogue was always “he got too famous too fast and now he thinks he’s too good and needs a supermodel”.

    • Dani says:

      I don’t blame her. Imagine breaking up and then finding out you’re pregnant and the baby daddy wants nothing to do with you and only starts to be a decent coparent when it’s convenient to him.

    • Sayrah says:

      I suspect they were broken up but had a one last time and that’s when she got pregnant. Still a bad look for Tom to so publicly move on with GB while his ex was pregnant with his child.

      • Millenial says:

        I tend to think there was some overlap between Bridget and Giselle and that’s why it was all so shady. Bridget thought they were together/working it out/whatever and he was out going on blind dates with supermodels.

        Gisele says they had their blind date in December 2006 and Jack was born in August of 2007.

        So that’s definite overlap in my book.

      • LL says:

        Sayrah: Edelman did the same thing. Edelman moved on with Adriana while his ex was pregnant with his child.

        Millenial: No overlap.

  3. Tiffany says:

    Is it shade when fact is stated.

    Lowest viewership is 10 years. The people have spoken.

    • Nancy says:

      🙄 We have. Nobody I know even hosted a Super Bowl party this year or last year, which is saying something in a sports town. We didn’t even watch, but have been busy! I like Bridget. Glad she got away from him in time to have her own happy life.

    • Josephine says:

      I see no shade. Edelman was the clear MVP and tons of people were tweeting that. How is it shade? Brady had a fine game but threw a key pick.

      And retweeting being tired of the Patriots is a real stretch for creating some sort of bitterness.

  4. Lizzie says:

    i don’t know in what world this seems shady.

    • Yawn says:

      In the same world where the Mary Poppins movie is racist… smh… people always looking to start trouble where there ain’t none…

    • Raina says:

      I’m not exactly seeing the shade, either…but who cares if there was. She’s an ex, she’s keeping it pretty passive and no one knows their past/current dynamic. She never appeared to be the overtly aggressive type anyway.
      Tom May be a strawberry hater (which is almost unforgivable in my world) but he’s pretty decent at the game. Some people are just REALLY good at one thing.
      If I loved what I was doing, would I want to retire? No. But, at the same time, eventually, know when to say when.
      I suspect his wife desperately wants him to quit.

      • Quietus says:

        I think Gisele said she wanted him to quit at least partly because of the head injury risks.

  5. SM says:

    I am sorry, I don’t understand. What is supposed to be a shade in this tweet? Isn’t tb12 tagged in the tweet not Tom Brady? This whole narrative of women holding into grudges just looking for ways to run over someone who wronged them years ago is bs. She is a mother and is married, yet she is supposed to cling to a man she is no longer with.

    • Erinn says:


      I think it’s silly. A lot of people want to find drama where there probably isn’t any. It’s been long enough at this point that I seriously doubt she’s being shady at all.

  6. Lightpurple says:

    I read that second one as pointing out that someone else agrees with her about Julian Edelman deserving the MVP.

    • Kitten says:

      Exactly this but shhhhhh we MUST continue the sexist narrative of a bitter, scorned woman! Always, ALWAYS ignore the fact that by all accounts, Bridget and Tom have managed to co-parent with mutual civility and respect/love for their son.

      • Lightpurple says:

        And from what we have seen of Jack, he seems like a happy kid who loves both his parents and his step-mom and who adores his younger siblings.

        I expect tomorrow we’ll have people enraged if the kid isn’t in the parade today, even though it’s a school day and he lives in another state and he probably missed school yesterday because he was at the game Sunday night. And if he is in the parade, how dare his father keep him out of school for so long. I think Vivie is going to be front and center on that boat today. Little girl loves to celebrate.

    • lucy2 says:

      I read it the same.
      There’s enough real crap in the world to get upset about, people need to stop looking for drama where there is none.

    • LL says:

      The second one is about Jewish people. Her husband is Jewish.

  7. DP says:

    I’m a Patriots fan. I don’t see any real shade here. She tweeted Congrats. She retweeted it’s a big night for Jewish people bc Edelman won MVP. Yeah, the first part of the quote is questionable, but so what. If I were her I would be totally sick of my ex winning all the time. You want them to do well, but maybe not be the GOAT! Lol!

    • Dutch says:

      I think the telling thing would be if she tweeted other things with the #EdlemanMVP hashtag, then it’s not shade.

  8. Marigold says:

    There is nothing to see here. She’s a fan (probably since childhood because she’s a local). She’s happy for them, full stop. She thought Julian should be MVP, like millions of others. It’s a nothingburger.

  9. PhillyGal says:

    Leave her alone. I feel exactly the same way.

  10. Keefuffle says:

    Bridget moved on years ago and isn’t the type to do that on social media anyway. But people want her to because it will help reinforce their perception of Tom Brady. Dude gives everyone enough on his own (seriously, he’s submitted a TB12 program as a Boston Marathon charity). Let’s let Bridget live in peace.

  11. whatWHAT? says:

    Man, he’s always had the derp-face, huh?

  12. Aimee says:

    NOW I remember why i hated him even before I started watching football!

  13. Maggie says:

    It was last one role in the hay… whoops she gets pregnant, years pass. Tom Brady is a cheater.

  14. J ferber says:

    His son John with Bridget is his spitting image. Beautiful boy.

    • Nancy says:

      I guess it was the daughter he was photographed with yesterday that looks like his wife. Too young to tell if she will be another supermodel, but definitely doesn’t look like her father.

      • Another Anne says:

        She’s got his mouth/smile, for sure. Other than that, she’s Giselle.

      • Nancy says:

        Same coloring, but like I said wait till she’s grown up. She will look different. I don’t see Brady in her. I thought her mouth was very broad, like her mothers. He has a small mouth like his bud trump.

  15. BL says:

    How is that throwing shade? #reaching

  16. me says:

    I don’t know whether she is or not but she is depicted as so bitter in the press.

  17. Oopygoopy says:

    Came here to say I would put money down on Brady supplementing with TRT and HGH. Thats probably a really big reason he still plays like he does, but I feel like no one ever mentions it. And before anyone says something along the lines of “but they have such strict diets why would he do that”, because its legal and extends his/their careers.

  18. LL says:

    I don’t see any shade here. Edeleman and her husband are Jewish. Edelman moved on with Adriana Lima while his ex was pregnant and Bridget still thinks he deserved the MVP.
