Whether you love them or hate them, there’s no doubt the New England Patriots are a force to be reckoned with in the world of professional football. We’re all familiar with Tom Brady, of course, as the star quarterback continues to break records and make a name for himself as one of the best ever to play the sport. But Brady can’t win the games alone, of course. And the team’s star tight end, Rob Gronkowksi, is also a notable star.
We know Gronkowski has been dating his model girlfriend, Camille Kostek, for quite some time — and now fans are wondering how far their relationship is going to go. Could wedding bells be ringing in their future? Here’s what’s suspected.
Kostek and Gronkowski have been romantically linked since she left the Patriots’ cheerleading squad
We may know her as a Sports Illustrated model now, but before Gronkowski and Kostek were romantically linked, they were actually both working under the Patriots’ name. Fox News reminds us Kostek was fighting for a highly-coveted spot on the Patriots’ cheerleading squad when she was just 19 years old. She made the team, but she noted how no-nonsense the squad was — and that meant there was also no romance between her and the football players. “Although you’re a Patriots cheerleader, you are not one team. As cheerleaders, we would be removed, cut from the team. It’s not allowed,” she said.
Kostek resigned from the team in 2015, however — and only then did she and Gronkowski get in touch. As she told Fox News, “I always knew who he was before I was even a cheerleader. I knew who he was on the roster. I just never paid any mind. Once I resigned is when we finally met.”
Rumors of a split surrounded the two in 2017
Even though she’s in the public eye, Kostek has spoken before about how she highly appreciates her privacy. Even so, she couldn’t avoid the media when Gronkowski fans started to notice he was appearing on her Instagram. E! News reports in the beginning of that year, the tight end claimed he was single — but by Spring, he was appearing in photos with Kostek, and they seemingly had nothing to hide.
By 2016, the couple was making public appearances, and they even walked the Kids’ Choice Sports Awards red carpet together. But fans started notice something was amiss in 2017. E! News notes reports claimed Gronkowski had moved on. Thankfully, by spring 2017, the two seemed to be back on, as they were spotted at a wedding together that May.
Will they get married? It may be on Kostek’s mind
Nowadays, it seems like Gronkowski and Kostek are better than ever — and many of their fans are wondering if their years together are bound to result in something long-lasting. Could marriage be on the brain for these two? It certainly seems possible.
The New York Post reports Kostek told The Improper Bostonian that she and Gronkowski are 100% career-focused at the moment — but she also said they’re also looking toward the future. “We’re not just a fling. We definitely see a future with each other. But as of right now, there are no plans,” she added. It looks like we’ll have to wait awhile longer to see if Gronkowski will be proposing any time soon — but fans are certainly hopeful.
