One big happy family! Gisele Bundchen wished her stepson, John, happy birthday with an adorable family photo on Saturday, Aug. 22. The supermodel posted a picture on Instagram of herself and her three kids laughing in a group hug.
“Eight years ago today a little angel was born. Happy birthday to the sweetest bigger brother in the world ! We love you so much peanut. Thank you for bringing so much joy into our lives,” Bundchen captioned the sweet snap of Tom Brady and his ex Bridget Moynahan’s son, John, with her kids Benjamin, 5, and Vivian, 2.
Brady and Moynahan split after three years in December 2006. That following February she announced she was pregnant with Brady’s son.
“I understand that he has a mom, and I respect that, but to me it’s not like because somebody else delivered him, that’s not my child,” Bundchen told Vanity Fair in 2009. “I feel it is, 100 percent. I want him to have a great relationship with his mom, because that’s important, but I love him the same way as if he were mine.”
"I never made a comment about Gisele or Tom publicly," Moynahan told More magazine in 2011, dispelling rumors of any tension. "I have a relationship with these people on a daily basis. I'm raising a child, and it's public. My son has two loving parents and an extended family, whether it's cousins or stepmothers or boyfriends. My son is surrounded by love."
Bundchen and Brady said “I do” in February 2009 after first stepping out together shortly after his split from Moynahan.
