"We first got in touch once I resigned from the team," she told Fox News. "I always knew who he was before I was even a cheerleader. I knew who he was on the roster. I just never paid any mind. Once I resigned is when we finally met."

In the last several years, the pair has gotten more and more public about their romance on social media as their relationship has progressed. They first appeared on one another's Instagram accounts in 2015 and made their red carpet debut together at the 2018 Kids' Choice Sports Awards.

Kostek has gotten more and more used to her private life being fodder for the public, but it definitely took some time for her to get comfortable with it.

"I am such a private person,” she said. “It was hard at first when people would send articles with my name on it. It’s an overwhelming feeling to read something that you have no control over. But like most things, you get strong when you have to deal with situations like that. It’s gotten a little easier. And usually, the people that are close to you know the truth. So it’s one of those things where you just have to let people think what they wanted to think."

Gronk and Kostek briefly split in 2017, before getting back together. They made their red carpet debut at the 2016 Kids' Choice Awards.
