“It’s going to be a challenge,” Tom, 29, says of impending fatherhood in the June/July issue of Details. “I guess that late at night, I’m not so much scared as thinking of it as a huge unknown.”
Brady is expecting his first child this summer with actress Bridget Moynahan, 35 – with whom he split in December after three years together.
“I want to prepare for it the way I do everything else in my life,” he tells Details. “I make lists. I make plans. But being a father is different. I think that people go into it and find out, holy s—, I have no control.”
Tom, who is now dating Gisele Bundchen, says “I’m attracted to women who are smart and funny and ambitious and have lives of their own and great families. Isn’t that what attracts anyone?” he says.
“People want to go out and travel around and meet cool people. I could just go live in Vermont, but is that what I really want?”
Tom, who often keeps low-profile, doesn’t appreciate all the media attention he has received for dating Gisele Bundchen while facing fatherhood with his ex. “It doesn’t affect anyone but me anyway,” he says, “so why is it a big deal?”
Tom said he and Bridget Moynahan know the sex of their baby but he isn’t about to tell everyone just yet.
