Pretty women and the Patriots. Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima is reportedly dating New England Patriots stud Julian Edelman.
The two are not exclusive (yet), but they were photographed holding hands over the weekend.
According to TMZ, the couple “met at the beginning of the month in Miami through mutual friends and have been out a couple of times.”
Things obviously went well enough on the past dates to warrant a weekend date at Straight Wharf in Nantucket, where the two seemed very comfortable with each other.
The celebrity website says the two have already introduced each other to their friends, as well.
Clearly, the Patriots players know a thing or two about supermodels cheering them on with Gisele Bundchen, the supermodel of all supermodels, often in the crowd rooting for her husband Tom Brady.
This isn’t Julian’s first foray into dating a model. Earlier this year, the Wide Receiver was spotted hanging out with Nick Jonas’ ex and former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo. Several patrons at a Providence bar saw them and outed them on social media. Julian also appeared shirtless on Olivia’s social media once.
In July, Lima confirmed that she had split with beau Joe Thomas, telling People magazine she “is single and happy.”
Just a few days ago she was linked to actor Scott Eastwood.
If there is a romance between the model and the footballer, Adriana will have to go back on one on of her qualifications for a man.
In 2014, there were racy whispers that the Victoria’s Secret model and Justin Bieber hooked up at the Cannes Film Festival. She staunchly denied those rumors, even saying that Justin doesn’t meet her physical requirements.
“Let me tell, you, OK I’m gonna tell you this. Anybody below 6’7″, you know how I call them?” she asked Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live,” before answering her own question, “friends.”
Julian is listed at 5 foot 10 inches, by the way.
