"It's not like because somebody else delivered him, that's not my child. I love him the same way as if he were mine. I already feel like he's my son, from the first day . . 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."
But file this next bit under We Knew This Was Gonna Happen. Seems Bridget's pals — perhaps, or perhaps not, echoing Bridget's feelings — aren't so thrilled with the supermodel's expression of motherly love.
While there's no word from Moynahan's camp, a close pal told Page Six, "If Gisele loved Bridget's child like he was '100 percent her own,' then she would not talk about him in the press. Discretion and respect are not either of Gisele or Tom's virtues, as was evidenced even when the child was still unborn and they publicly flaunted their relationship without any discretion whatsoever."
Moynahan's friend also wondered: "Don't you think Jack will grow up and read her comments and find them disrespectful to him and his mother?
"If Tom is such a great father as everyone likes to say, then you would think that he'd respect the privacy of his young child and would ask his wife not to use his son as a publicity prop and a subject of public discussion."
Jeepers, was what Gisele said really that bad? Is it an invasion of the kid's privacy?
Also, there is a bit of a language barrier. We don't think she was really calling the little boy "it."
What do you think?
