Julian Edelman Isn’t Married But These Are The Girlfriends He Has Dated

While some people sacrifice their love lives on the altar of achieving success, others focus all their attention on romantic relationships without making much impact career-wise. If there is one person who has managed to find a balance between these two equally important areas of life, it is the NFL star, Julian Edelman. The Wide receiver-cum-punt returner joined the NFL in 2009 after he was picked by the New England Patriots in the 7th round of the draft.

Since then, he has established himself as an indispensable member of the Patriots’ franchise. He has also won several accolades, including three Super Bowl rings. Off the field of play, the dashing Edelman is somewhat of a lothario and has dated a bevy of successful and gorgeous ladies. Who says you can’t have it all?

How He Became a Dad For The First Time

Asides his prowess on the field of play, Julian Edelman has also made the headlines for his fascinating love life. The Patriots star was formally linked with the popular Instagram model, Ella Rose, between 2014 and 2015. Rose is a native of Malmo, Sweden, and she formerly worked as a cocktail waitress. She is now famous on Instagram, where she shares modeling shots with her followers. Edelman and Rose reportedly had a casual relationship between 2014 and 2015.

That relationship later resulted in a pregnancy, and the NFL star initially denied the child’s paternity. This forced Rose to Institute a paternity suit in an L.A. County Superior Court in July 2016, but the matter was later withdrawn after Edelman accepted responsibility. Rose later delivered their child, a daughter named Lily, on the 30th of November 2016, and Edleman took to his Instagram account to share his joy and welcome the little tot to the world.

Julian Edelman’s Continuous Search for the One

Despite his initial misgivings, Edelman has grown to love his daughter and has declared that he is no longer living his life for himself, but rather for his daughter. He is also focused on giving Lily all the time and energy that she deserves. Meanwhile, following the whole controversy, The Patriots star commenced a relationship with Brazilian supermodel, Adriana Lima, in July 2016. The couple were reportedly introduced to each other by mutual friends and were photographed for the first time together on a romantic vacation in Nantucket.

Edelman and Lima dated for nearly a year during which the supermodel regularly attended his games. Many tipped them to go the long haul, but they, however, split in March 2017. Following the split, sources close to the couple revealed that the breakup was due to disagreement over children. Lima reportedly wanted them to have a child together while Edelman wanted to maintain the status quo. Another fact that contributed to the couple’s breakup was long distance; Edelman resided in Boston while Lima made her home in Miami.

Since their split, the NFL player has not been involved with anybody else, save for an unconfirmed rumor that he was dating Victoria Secret model, Daiane Sodre, in 2018. He has, however, revealed that he has to consider his daughter when choosing his next girlfriend. According to him, he is looking for stepmom material i.e. a lady that will help him raise his beloved daughter. As this search or hunt continues, Edelman is satisfied with focusing his energies on his daughter, as well as his football career that dates back to his childhood.

How He Become a Football Superstar

Julian Francis Edelman was born on May 22, 1986, in Redwood City, California. His father, Frank Edelman, is Jewish while his mother’s name is Angela (née Gole). The NFL star is of mixed ethnicity, including Greek, English, Scottish, Irish, Ashkenazi Jewish, and German, but he holds an American nationality. Edelman began to show interest in football from an early age, but he formally joined the sports in his high school years at Woodside High School in Woodside, California.

During this period, he served as the school’s quarterback, and his active role in the team earned him a place in the hearts of most of his schoolmates and football fans. He ended his high school career, passing for 2,237 yards and 29 touchdowns and rushing for 964 yards and 13 touchdowns, and thus, became a local hero in his hometown. Julian Edelman commenced his college career at the College of San Mateo, California, where he spent one year. During this period, he rushed for a school-record of 1,253 yards and 17 touchdowns and passed for 1,312 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Following this impressive feat, Edelman transferred to Kent State University, Ohio, where he studied business management. He also served as the school’s starting quarterback for the three years that he played there. In his senior year alone, Edelman became the Golden Flashes’ top passer, completing 153 of 275 passes for 1,820 yards, 13 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions. He also rushed for 1,370 yards on 215 attempts with 13 touchdowns, making him the top rusher in the school’s history.

Details of His NFL Career & Achievements

Given his college exploits, one would have thought that Julian Edelman would have a smooth path to the NFL, but it wasn’t so. The scouts sneered at his small frame and as such, he was not even invited to showcase his abilities at the 2009 NFL Draft Combine. The young man had to content himself with showing his abilities at private workouts for various teams, and his efforts paid off when The New England Patriots picked him in the 7th round of the 2009 draft. He then signed a four-year contract with the team on July 16, 2009.

Edelman made his professional debut on 20th September 2009 in a game against the New York Jets. He recorded 8 receptions and 138 yards and continued in like-manner all through the season, resulting in a total of 37 receptions, 359 yards, and 1 touchdown. Following this average rookie season, Edelman went back to the drawing board and continued working on improving various aspects of his game for the next three years (2010 -2012). All this hard work eventually manifested in a stellar 2013 and 2014 seasons.

For 2013, Julian Edelman posted a career-high 105 receptions for 1056 yards and 6 touchdowns as The Patriots made it to the AFC championship game. For the 2014 season, the wide receiver completed 92 receptions, 972 yards, and 4 touchdowns as his team made it to the Super Bowl. In the Super Bowl game, Edelman recorded 109 yards and nine receptions as The Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks to win Super Bowl XLIX. Since that victory, Julian Edelman has gone on to win two more Super Bowl rings and spectacularly as well.

The first was the 2015 season when he caught an impossible pass (dubbed the greatest catch in NFL history) to help The Patriots win Super Bowl LI. The second was the 2018 Super Bowl. Before that year, Edelman had missed the entire 2017 season following an ACL injury, which he sustained. Many doubted that he could ever reclaim his form or even a starting place on the team, but he refused to be daunted. He made his comeback in 2018 and assisted the Patriots to reach Super Bowl LIII. In the game, he caught 10 of 12 passes for 141 yards as the Patriots went on to defeat the L.A. Rams. These heroics fetched him the MVP award, and he made history as the first Jew to receive such honor.
