(Newser) – Actress Bridget Moynahan opens up to Harper's Bazaar about the emotional rollercoaster that was being dumped by Tom Brady for supermodel Gisele Bundchen only to learn she was pregnant. "Going through that traumatic time of being heartbroken and then being pregnant turned my whole life upside down…just knocked the wind out of me," Moynahan tells Harper’s Bazaar.

"I'm not sure anyone…grows up thinking, ‘I want to be a single mom,’" the 37-year-old admits. "I'm a traditional girl, and I believe in marriage, and I just always thought that's the way I'd be doing this. For a moment, it was hard for me to accept that this was the way I was going to have a family."
