Bündchen made headlines in March 2009 after she told Vanity Fair that she feels like John is “100 percent” her child.
“It was definitely a surprise for both of us. In the beginning you’re living this romantic fantasy; you’re thinking, ‘This can’t be true, it’s so good!’ And then, Whoops—wake-up call!” the model told the magazine about Moynahan’s pregnancy. “We were dating two and a half months when he found out, and it was a very challenging situation. Obviously, in the beginning, it’s not the ideal thing.”
“He’s a little angel—the sweetest, most cuddly, loving baby,” Bündchen continued. “I feel blessed to have him in my life. 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. 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 already feel like he’s my son, from the first day.”
Reports surfaced at the time that Moynahan was upset by Bündchen’s comments.Back to top
