As Tom Brady awaits the birth of his son to an ex-girlfriend, he best read this story of NFL love gone … not so stellar.

Matt Leinart’s ex-girlfriend, Brynn Cameron, tells the Ventura County Star that when it comes to parenting, she’s the star quarterback.

“It’s kind of hard for me as the mom, I’m with Cole” – her 9-month-old son with Matt Leinart – “probably 99.9 percent of the time, to open a magazine or read a newspaper article with Matt saying something like, ‘Oh, I love being a dad. I love changing diapers. I love doing this.’ I’m like, Wait, what?” Cameron said.

It’s been hard. I’m doing all the work, but he gets all the credit.”

Leinart, 24, starred at the University of Southern California, where he won the Heisman Trophy and saw PLENTY of bush. Star tailback Reggie Bush, that is.

He and Cameron dated but later split in 2006. Brynn currently lives with her parents and the baby, Cole Cameron Leinart, as Matt plays with the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals.

Although Matt Leinart recently gushed about being a father, Brynn Cameron has her own strong feelings. The quarterback “comes and goes whenever he wants,” she says.

“I don’t want to sit here and bad-mouth his lifestyle,” she says, “but it is hard because we are different people. He likes that Hollywood stuff and I don’t like that.”

Hey, lighten up. At least he’s not Michael Vick, okay, Brynn?

It’s easy to see what she means, though. Leinart is pals with boy band singer / sex god Nick Lachey, and has been romantically linked to Paris Hilton and Kristin Cavallari.

In any case, Matt Leinart will join his Cardinals teammates at training camp in late July. Brynn Cameron, meanwhile, plans to return to campus this fall.

“It’s hard, but I have to raise Cole to be a strong, secure kid so he knows what’s right and wrong, what’s good and bad and what matters in life, which isn’t what’s going on with [celebrity gossip] or who’s dating who,” says Cameron.

“That’s not what it’s all about, and I think he’ll know that being raised by me.”

Oh, snap! Matt Leinart has been sacked, ladies and gentlemen! Which is good, in a way, as he can get used to it … it’ll happen about 10 times every Sunday come September.
