Before he ever met Gisele, Tom Brady had a long-term romance with another beautiful and talented woman: actress Bridget Moynahan. The pair were the talk of the town when they got together in 2004, and also when they split in 2006 but nothing would match what was yet to come.
When Brady and Moynahan first got together back in 2004, Moynahan was basking in the glow of her recent film and TV successes, having slayed roles in Coyote Ugly, Sex and the City, and I, Robot.
Brady was also enjoying an incredibly successful career, already bringing home Super Bowl wins for the New England Patriots as their starting quarterback. According to The Boston Globe, Moynahan said at the time that she saw herself married with children within the next five years.
But things took a serious turn with an unexpected twist.
Seemingly out of nowhere, Moynahan and Brady split in December of 2006, according to People. A rep for Moynahan told the magazine that they “amicably ended their […] relationship” but fans wondered how such a seemingly happy relationship suddenly dissolved.
The mystery didn’t last long. Before the year was out, Brady was dating Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen, according to The Boston Globe. And per the couple, it was love at first sight.
The two are still together, married, with children. So was Gisele the reason that Brady and Moynahan called it quits? The couple remain tight-lipped to this day, but it seems likely that Brady fell for Bündchen, leaving Moynahan behind.
