Gisele Bundchen had a big decision to make about her relationship with Tom Brady. Shortly after she and the football star began dating, Brady’s ex-girlfriend, Bridget Moynahan, announced she was pregnant with Brady’s child. Brady and Moynahan had been together for three years before announcing their breakup in December 2006.

Bundchen discussed her decision with Vanity Fair in 2009, “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!” She elaborated, “It was a challenging thing because here I am, you know, thinking I’m dating this guy… We met, we started dating, everything is great, and then this happens, so I felt I didn’t know what to do. Do I just run away?”

Luckily, Bundchen decided to stay and is now a proud stepmom to Brady’s son in addition to her own two biological children. She believes becoming a stepmom has actually strengthened her relationship with Brady. “I think it was a blessing, because otherwise I don’t think I would have known what he was made of, and he wouldn’t have known what I was made of.”

“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,” Bundchen said. “I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter bonus child.”

While Brady’s ex has remained out of the spotlight, she too has made statements supporting the unconditional love her son receives from not just one – but both families. “My son has two loving parents and an extended family, whether it’s cousins or stepmothers or boyfriends. My son is surrounded by love,” Moynahan said to More magazine in 2011.

Bundchen and Brady’s relationship has not always been picture perfect. The Patriots suffered media scandal in 2014 following the infamous 2014 AFC Championship Game football tampering scandal.Brady reportedly brought his work frustration home, resulting in discontent in their relationship. Bundchen threatened him with divorce, but the couple ultimately made up and got through the difficult media frenzy together.

Power couples are not always doomed to unsatisfactory relationships! If anything, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady are a shining example of a mixed family that loves and supports its members through the good times and the bad.
