“He’s a little angel.”

Gisele Bundchen isn’t talking about her new husband Tom Brady (the supermodel married the super quarterback February 26th in Santa Monica), but his love child, 19-month-old John Edward Thomas Moynahan.

“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,” Bundchen, 28, says in the May issue of Vanity Fair. “I feel it is, 100 percent. 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. I already feel like he’s my son, from the first day.”

Wonder how the birth mother of Brady’s child, actress Bridget Moynahan–whom Gisele has never met–feels about that.

Brady and Bundchen’s relationship fumbled early on when they discovered he was having a child with ex-girlfriend Moynahan.

“We were dating two and a half months when he found out, and it was a very challenging situation. Obviously, in the beginning, it’s not the ideal thing,” says Bundchen, but that ultimately the baby “was a blessing.”
