Early Life and Education

Her love for dance started at the early age of three when she started taking ballet lessons. Camille continued to study ballet at the Broadway Dance Center in New York City and competed nationally.

Rob Gronkowski’s future wife attended Haddam-Killingworth High School. Camille was the host of her high school’s broadcasting program, lacrosse varsity captain, and a cheerleader.

Camille went on to graduate from Eastern Connecticut State University with a major in Communications and a minor in Business. During her time at Eastern, Camille played lacrosse before joining the dance squad full-time. She was also an anchor for the school’s network show TV22.

Camille Kostek’s Career

Contrary to what most people think, Camille is more than just a model. With her background in dance, Camille moved on to become a professional cheerleader. She also has done multiple hosting gigs as well as acting. Camille even got in touch with her entrepreneurial side and owns a jewelry and swimsuit line.

Professional Cheerleading

When Camille was 19, she began cheerleading professionally for the Hartford Colonials of the United Football League. Then, during her junior year at university, Camille made the New England Patriots cheerleading roster of the National Football League (NFL).

Before her modeling career really took off, Rob Gronkowski’s future wife was a cheerleader for the New England Patriots.

She took part in the NFL Tour in China as a Patriots ambassador, teaching at youth cheer clinics and performing routines. Before retiring, she performed for Super Bowl XLIX in her final game, where the Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks on February 1st, 2015, in Arizona’s University of Phoenix Stadium.


As a communications graduate, Camille has hosted shows on ABC, CBS, and Fox affiliate channels and co-anchored the WPRI-TV program The Rhode Show in 2015. In 2016 and 2017, she covered sports events, including NASCAR, for Dirty Water TV on NESN. In addition to hosting and contributing content for an array of events, she has also provided lifestyle, red carpet, and sports coverage for Maxim and Sports Illustrated.

Right out of college, Camille had the chance to work for ESPN’s Saturday Night Football, but she opted to model and travel instead. TBS announced in September 2020 that she will host the game show Wipeout.


In 2015, Camille joined her first modeling agency in Boston. In the following years, she became a model and brand ambassador for Equinox, Benrus, and Dune Jewelry. Her early modeling work included print and television ads for New Balance, Nissan, Rebag, and several others. In addition to doing editorials for magazines like Elle, she has graced the covers of luxury lifestyle magazines.

Rob Gronkowski’s future wife has been featured in campaigns and ambassadorships for several clothing and cosmetic brands throughout her career, including Victoria’s Secret, L’Oréal, and Clarins. At New York Fashion Week, Camille walked the runway for Kittenish’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection.

Camille has admitted struggling to secure modeling representation early on in her modeling career due to her height and size. She was often told height, 5’8, was too short, or her 4/6 dress size wasn’t thin enough.

She eventually heard about an open casting call for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and tried her luck by submitting a video of herself and her experience. Thanks to this video, Camille got scouted right away, and her modeling career with Sports Illustrated has only skyrocketed since then.

Relationship with Rob Gronkowski

Camille met Rob Gronkowski in 2014. Camille was a New England Patriots cheerleader in her rookie year, while Gronk was in his third year as a Patriot when they met at a volunteer event. Camille’s agent introduced the two, and the relationship was purely professional at first.

After a few months of meeting up for business-related meetings, they realized that there might be something more to this than just an agent/client relationship. Camille says she fell head over heels during one of their dinners with friends when he made her laugh so hard that she had tears running down her face from laughing too much. It was at that moment she saw herself building a future with Gronk.

Will Camille Kostek Ever Be Rob Gronkowski’s Wife?

Gronk has said on ESPN’s radio show “The Herd” that he knew his life would change after getting together with Camille because it felt like everything finally clicked into place. Many people wonder when Gronk will take their relationship to the next level and add “Rob Gronkowski’s wife” to her impressive resume.

According to a source close to the couple, the pair have already discussed marriage but are waiting until Gronk officially retires. Despite his previous retirement, Gronk returned to the NFL in 2020 and joined former New England Patriots teammate Tom Brady on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And wouldn’t you know it? The dynamic duo was able to win another Super Bowl in their first season together with the Bucs.
