Camille Kostek Appears on Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue

Camille Kostek Appears on Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue

Foxborough, MA– One of the biggest traditions of any magazine comes from the annual “swimsuit issue” of Sports Illustrated. A magazine that tends to reserve its interior pages for the latest articles and think pieces about sports, Sports Illustrated does allow for one week out of the year to just have pages upon pages of swimsuit models. It has become a desirable position for many models to find themselves on the cover of this annual issue, which is arguably SI’s biggest claim to fame. This year, model Camille Kostek was awarded the honor of appearing on the cover and this has become something to be proud of for Boston sports fans, who have adopted Kostek as one of their own.

Kostek has an impressive career as a model, to be sure, but another fun fact about her is that she happens to be dating Rob Gronkowski, the recently retired tight end legend of the New England Patriots. Kostek has recently commented on Gronk’s retirement with the implication that he may not necessarily stay retired because of his nature as a wild card, but that is beside the point of this article. Just as Patriots fans have come to accept Gisele Bundchen into the fold, so too will they with Kostek.

Kostek’s appearance on the cover of the swimsuit issue for Sports Illustrated was a fairly unconventional one, at least in terms of the way she reacted to it. Check out this statement she made to Extra about the path she took when telling her significant other of the news.

“There’s so many things I’ve found out about him and his career through the internet, that I thought it would be kind of fun to do a role reversal and see what it was like for him to kind of see something for the first time online. I’m sure he’s going to love it.”

And love it, Gronk did! He gushed over Kostek on Instagram and Twitter and it was cute to see him so proud of his girlfriend. But good on Kostek for taking an unconventional route for revealing the information. It’s not every day that a surprise like that can be sprung on someone and I bet it was lots of fun to see how Gronk reacted when he eventually found out!
