Camille Kostek has been dating former American football tight end Robert James "Gronk" Gronkowski since the mid-2010s, and even though she feels blessed to have him, she is ready to say yes when he proposes. Here is all you need to know about the couple.


On June 21, 2022, the 33-year-old Tampa Bay Buccaneers' tight end took to his Instagram to reveal that he was ready to retire for a second time. In 2018, he retired for the first time after he suffered injuries but was summoned out of retirement by Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.

The former American football tight end also played in the National Football League for 11 seasons. He spent nine seasons with the New England Patriots and was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for two seasons.

In his retirement post, the footballer, fondly called Gronk, said playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was a dream job opportunity. As he thanked his team, he said:

"I will now be going back into my retirement home, walking away from football again with my head held high, knowing I gave it everything I had, good or bad, every time I stepped out on the field."

In 2014, the four-time super bowl winner was named NFL Comeback Player of the Year and retired with the second-most career touchdowns at any position. While much is known about his career, here is what you need to know about his private life.



Kostek is a former NFL cheerleader who joined the New England Patriots in 2013 and cheered for two seasons. She is also a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, former competitive tap dancer, television host, fashion designer, and film actress.

The model debuted in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue in 2018 as one of two models chosen from the magazine's first-ever open casting call. She appeared on the cover the following year, and in 2022, she made her fifth consecutive appearance in SI Swimsuit.


In 2020, Kostek was named a host of the revival of TBS' physical competition series "Wipeout," alongside John Cena and Nicole Byer. In 2021, she made her acting debut, starring alongside Ryan Reynolds as the bombshell in "Free Guy."

Due to NFL rules, when Kostek and Gronk first met, they were not allowed to date, so he had another NFL player secretly give her his number on a piece of paper when they were making turkey baskets for the less fortunate. The couple has been dating since 2015.



The power couple is not yet engaged, but after more than five years, it would not be out of the question for him to ask her to marry him. In April 2022, Kostek said:

"If he were to get down on one knee, I'd be excited. He's my best friend. I would spend the rest of my life with him. When the time is right it'll be."

Kostek further stated that she and Gronk already behave like they are married because they live, work, and travel together and are blessed to wake up next to each other every day.
