SECRET LOVE

Moynahan and Frankel kept their wedding on the down-low, so much so that their guests did not even know that they were attending the wedding before they arrived at the venue.

The couple invited their nearest and dearest to what they thought was a harvest moon ceremony on October 19, 2015. Upon arrival at Wölffer Estate Vineyard, the guests discovered that the wedding was taking place.

THE BACKSTORY

Moynahan met the love of her life through a mutual friend who introduced them. The two hit it off and got in engaged in April 2015. Frankel popped the big question in Puerto Rico with the actress' dream vintage estate ring.

The "I, Robot" actress was clearly in love with the businessman as she gushed about her husband in an interview a month after her rustic New York wedding took place. She elaborated, saying:

“He’s the nicest guy ever. Genuine, kind and sensitive. He’s the best.”

ROCKY BEGINNINGS

Although Moynahan has found her one, it wasn't without some difficulties at first. The actress dated Tom Brady from 2004 to 2006, and a few months after breaking up and Brady moving on, Moynahan found out she was pregnant.

Brady had been dating model Gisele Bündchen for two months when he found out that he would become a father. This was obviously a difficult situation as Moynahan said that Brady was there for the delivery but commented further, saying:

"He certainly wasn’t holding my hand while I pushed.”

CHILDREN AND MARRIAGE

Moynahan and Brady's son was born in August 2007, and they named him John Edward Thomas Moynahan. The baby's biological mother wasn't the only one who loved him as Bündchen said she regarded him as her son too.

Brady married the model in 2009, and the two expanded their family. The football player and model share two children, son Benjamin and daughter Vivian who follow Brady's first son.
