In real life, Bridget Moynahan has a soft place for romance, just like everyone else, even though she portrays a rugged, divorced police officer on Blue Bloods. Since 2015, the actress has been wed to businessman Andrew Frankel of New York City.
After Moynahan’s romance with NFL star Tom Brady, with whom she shares a son, came to an end, the two were initially acquainted via their common acquaintances. Frankel proposed to Moynahan in April 2015, and they were married a few months later.
The Sex and the City actress occasionally spoke openly about her relationship with the businessman, and she never had anything but positive things to say.
“He’s the nicest guy ever,” she said while promoting her cookbook on The Rachael Ray Show in 2015. “Genuine, kind and sensitive. He’s the best. He’ll eat basically anything and tell me it’s great.”
