NFL star Jason Taylor may not have been at Tom Brady's Feb. 26 wedding to Gisele Bündchen, but he says his pal is focused on building a family in Los Angeles.
"He's happy, so I'm happy for him," Taylor, 34, tells PEOPLE. "He's got a little kid now and he's enjoying fatherhood. Obviously, he loves Gisele, and there's nothing like finding the right woman and being in love, so I'm happy for him."
And his friend, the Patriots quarterback, has made parenting son John – with ex, Bridget Moynahan – a priority, spending increasing time in Los Angeles to be close to him.
