Bridget Moynahan On Being Single & Pregnant: "It Was F*cked Up"

Bridget Moynahan sounds like she's still got some issues to work out about splitting with New England Patriot's quarterback Tom Brady, who immediately began dating supermodel Gisele Bundchen, only to find out Bridge was pregnant with his child.

"I'm not sure anyone -- and I could be wrong in this -- grows up thinking, I want to be a single mom," the actress tells Harper's Bazaar.

But, just a few months after the end of he 3-year relationship with Tom, that's where she found herself.

"When you're suddenly pregnant and no one is standing by your side, even if you're in your 30s, it's a hard conversation. I'm a traditional girl, and I believe in marriage, and I just always thought that's the way I'd be doing this," she said. "For a moment, it was hard for me to accept that this was the way I was going to have a family."

Then her son, John, was born last August -- who she gave her last name (burn) -- and realized that her baby was really the light at the end of the tunnel.

"I got so much out of that," she says of that "traumatic time of being heartbroken" and pregnant. "It's golden and it's tough and it was f---ed up. But now I have a child, and it's the best thing in the world."

You know, on one hand, I think it's great that Bridget isn't sugar-coating her experience and smiling for the cameras, telling everyone "I'm fine, I'm fine." On the other hand, it's pretty obvious she would benefit from a good therapist to help her out with her anger issues.
