Bridget Moynahan is “thankful” for her new son John Edward Thomas Moynahan, her rep tells PEOPLE.

“She is thankful for a healthy baby and is excited about being a mother,” Christina Papadopoulos says in a statement.

The actress, 36, welcomed the baby boy on Aug. 22 in Los Angeles. She was “very pleased” that ex-boyfriend, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, 30, was able to skip practice and “be there for the birth and spend a few days with their new child.”

The couple split in December after a three-year relationship. Brady is currently dating Gisele Bundchen.
