New couple alert! New England Patriots star Julian Edelman is rumored to be dating Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima. 

The athlete is said to have met the bombshell in Miami at the beginning of the month through mutual friends and ‘have gone out a few times,’ TMZ reported.

The pair were photographed over the weekend in Nantucket, Massachusetts holding hands at Straight Wharf. 

The 35-year-old brunette beauty looked casual and chic as she sported a pair of black shorts with a black racer-back tank top and flat sandals.

The wide receiver also kept it casual, wearing cut off gray colored shirts, a light blue denim button down shirt open-faced with a white t-shirt underneath. 

The 30-year-old California native and Super Bowl winner donned a pair of white sneakers for their outing. 

They are not exclusively dating just yet, but ‘seem to be into each other, as they’ve introduced one another to their friends,’ according to the New York Post.

Prior to being linked to the supermodel, Edelman was rumored to be dating Olivia Culpo, as they were spotted together back in February at a Providence bar. 

Lima just recently ended things with boxing coach and trainer Joe Thomas in early July. At the time she told People that she is ‘single and happy.’

Edelman isn’t the first Patriots player to date a Victoria’s Secret model. 

Quarterback Tom Brady married fellow Victoria’s Secret angel Gisele Bündchen back in 2009 and the pair have two children together.

Edelman, who has no children, is scheduled to report to training camp Wednesday at Gillette Stadium along with the rest of the Patriots’ players. 

Lima, who has two daughters from a previous marriage to pro basketball player Marko Jaric, is gracing the cover of Vogue Brazil for their August issue in celebration of the upcoming Rio Olympics.

‘An honor to be on the cover of @voguebrasil,’ Adriana captioned with her Instagram post of the magazine cover on Monday. ‘And very happy to see the #Olympics in my home country with @nbcolympics’ 

She posed inside the magazine for a sporty, boxing-themed photoshoot. 

In addition, Lima will be reporting on the summer games on NBC, where she will be joined by fellow Brazilian beauty Alessandra Ambrosio. 

The two models will serve as correspondents for the network. 

On the cover, Adriana bundles up in a brown coat and accessorizes with a simple watch on her wrist. She stares directly at the camera, her blue eyes mesmerizing and her make-up natural.

Inside its pages, she is pictured in a sequined skirt, worn over blue and orange leggings. Her expression is moody as she stretched out on the floor in a colorful room.

Keep warm this Fall in a double-breasted pea coat like Adriana

The anticipation for the Summer Olympics in Rio is building and we can’t wait to see Adriana Lima front and center as she covers the event for NBC.

The supermodel covered Vogue Brasil’s August issue where she posed for a sporty themed photoshoot (natch) but it was this Dior coat she wore on the front page that really captured our eye.

From the Fall 2016 collection, the cocoa colored, thigh length number had a double-breasted silhouette and a cowl neck.

While we’re in the midst of a heat wave here in New York, it’s hard to wrap our heads around outerwear right now. But Adriana is giving us major inspo for Fall.

Capture her look with one of the alternative styles we’ve selected below from Ralph Lauren, Vans, Level 99 and Monsoon. You’ll be cozy and chic in no time.

In another image, she’s seen wearing braids and resting on the edge of a boxing ring while surrounded by four young boxers in tank tops and shorts.

Adriana traveled to Rio de Janeiro for the occasion, posing in a local gym in order to bring awareness to Fight for Peace. The organization teaches boxing and martial arts to youth in the city, and also offers mentorships and vocational training to help keep kids on a good path. 

‘I’m so incredibly honored and moved to be featured on the cover of Vogue Brazil during such a historic time in my native country,’ the star told E! News.

‘Not only was this shoot a memorable career moment for me, but I was also given the opportunity to raise awareness for Fight for Peace, an organization that benefits underprivileged youths in Rio,’ she added.

Adriana is actually a boxer herself, and takes classes as her preferred form of exercise. She first discovered it 14 years ago, and last year watched Floyd Mayweather fight Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas alongside her trainer Dino Spencer.
