One of her close friends, who you know was totally reading off index cards that Bridget wrote out for her, said, “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. 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. Is she is so desperate for attention that she can’t find anything more productive to talk about other than Bridget’s child?”
Personally, I couldn’t get past the part where Gisele called Tom and Bridget’s son “it.” As in, “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.” As a mother, I am here to tell you that the only time you call your kid “it” is when you are pregnant and they have just made you puke for the sixth time before noon. Once born, calling your child “it” is considered somewhat declasse.
