Camille Kostek and Rob Gronkowski are running back their romance. 

In fact, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model recently shared that she and the retired NFL star briefly separated, only to get back together. 

"Rob and I have been together for many years," the 32-year-old, who was first linked to Rob in 2015, explained to Page Six May 14. "We've had our ups, we've had our downs, and we've been able to break up, do our thing and get back together and heal in different ways, and learn and grow through the years."

And the actress divulged that while she started dating the former New England Patriots tight end, who officially retired from the sport in 2022, when she was just 21, she's happy they haven't tied the knot yet. 

"If we were to be married sooner, it would have been over by now," she added. "But we've been able to do our thing individually."

And while she certainly sees nuptials on the horizon for her and Rob she's not in any rush—nor is she willing to go into too many details.

"It will be a surprise and a special day," she said of any potential wedding, before adding that she's "very happy now."

Camille's candid conversation about her decade-long relationship came amid celebrating her boyfriend's 35th birthday May 14—which she highlighted on Instagram. Through the exciting moment, she also emphasized her ability—and the importance—in choosing happiness in her relationship.

"I feel like this question gets asked to a lot of women who are in relationships for a long time, and a lot of people don't get asked, ‘Are you happy? How's your heart?'" Camille added. "Because that's what's most important."

Despite the bumps she's faced in her relationship with Rob, these days, they appear very happy together. After all, they dominate each other's social media feed and often write notes to each other online. 

As Rob wrote in his birthday tribute to Camille in February, "You're the sweetest and deserve nothing but the best!"

For The Long Run 

In May 2024, Camille shared that she and Rob have had their fair share of ups and downs in their relationship—but that it has only made them stronger. 

“Rob and I have been together for many years,” the 32-year-old, who was first linked to Rob in 2015, explained to Page Six. “We’ve had our ups, we’ve had our downs, and we’ve been able to break up, do our thing and get back together and heal in different ways, and learn and grow through the years.”

After the duo became dog parents in February 2021, their feeds became dominated with their adorable french bulldog. Camille shared a photo of their little family in July 2022, aptly captioning it, "My boys."

Shake It

A duo that fuels together, stays together. As Rob prepared to head into the 2022 playoffs, Camille shared a photo of the couple fueling up with some healthy shakes. As she wrote in a January 2022 Instagram post, "Our kind of date night celebrating another epic football season BUT it’s not over."

Greatest Teammates

When Camille Kostek celebrated the release of her new movie Free Guys in June 2021, Rob "Gronk" Gronkowski had a front-row seat to the special screening. "Summer of 2019 I was cast to play ‘Bombshell' in @freeguymovie," the actress shared on Instagram. "What made it extra special was that it was shot in Boston, a city that has grown to be like a second home for me. Last night was a private screening right here in Boston and it was beyond exciting to be back in a theater (and a dream to see myself on the big screen)." 

Loyal Cheerleader

"4th ring tings," Camille gushed on Instagram after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won big in 2021. "Another Super Bowl Ring Ceremony with this champ. I love celebrating you and this team."

Game Over

"I look for someone that makes me feel comfortable," Camille shared with E! News in April 2020. "The support, it's just effortless like it should be. Whatever he does, whatever he wants to pursue, anything that excites him, I'm like, ‘Go for it. I got your back.' And he's the same way."
