It’s not easy to stay in the spotlight next to Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model and former Patriots cheerleader Camille Kostek. But Rob Gronkowski has stood his ground. He’s had an outstanding run with the Patriots. Gronkowski’s a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time Super Bowl champ. He led in touchdowns in 2011 and is a four-time First-team All-Pro. Whew!
The two have been dating since 2015 after she resigned from the Patriots cheerleading squad; as per league rules—dating is forbidden. She said, “Once I resigned is when we finally met.” But she did admit to knowing Rob before she quit. It was around the time she got the swimsuit cover when they began dating.
