A Swedish model planned to take a New England Patriots star to court as she claimed that he is the father of her unborn child. Ella Rose has filed court documents in Los Angeles that say Julian Edelman is her baby’s daddy, according to TMZ. The gossip site, quoting sources, says that Edelman and Rose have had a “casual relationship for about two years.” Rose is thought to be five months pregnant.
Here’s what you need to know:
1. Edelman Has Acknowledged That He Is the Father of the Baby
The Boston Globe reported on July 28 that while Edelman had initially contested the paternity of the baby, he is now acknowledging that he is the father.
The Globe also says that Rose is due in October and although she lives in Los Angeles, intends to have the baby in Massachusetts.
The news of the paternity came on the same day that the Patriots began training camp Foxborough.
2. Rose ‘Doesn’t Believe in Pickup Lines
Rose’s social media pages are not filled with biographical information. On her Facebook page, Rose says that she’s a native of the Swedish city of Malmo and that she now lives in Los Angeles. While her Instagram page directs people to her official website, ThisisEla.com. Among the limited content on the site is a blog section where Rose posts more photos of herself modeling. One post, from February 2016, shows her at the Grammy awards where she writes:
Had so much fun attending the Grammys this year. Amazing performances. My favorites this year were Lady Gaga’s and Adele’s performances. My dress was by Stello, handbag by Saint Laurent, shoes By Christian Louboutin, jewelry by Hye Angel and Cartier.
In a rare interview with The Rooster, Rose talks about how she is not a fan of pickup lines saying, “I don’t really believe in pickup lines, I believe in moments. The pickup line can be totally wrong if it is said in the right moment.” She also tells them that she is “addicted” to chocolate and that her worst job was working as a waitress in Spain for a period.
Rose also told the Rooster about how she got into modeling saying, “It was really by accident. I had a friend ask me to shoot for their company and I did it for fun and since then I got booked for a lot of jobs.” When asked about her future plans, Rose said:
I want to work with fashion in the future so I guess that’s what I would be doing now If I wasn’t modeling, hopefully in a few years I will have my own swimwear/lingerie line.
3. Rose Was Last in the News When She Was Accosted by Aussie Singer Cody Simpson on a Beach in California
The Daily Mail reported in March 2016 that Rose and another model, Emma Hernan, had been accosted by Australian singer Cody Simpson on a beach in Malibu. The tabloid notes that the encounter seemed “warm.”
4. Edelman Was Put on Blast in 2015 When Woman Posted a Photo of Him to Snapchat While Claiming the 2 Had Just Had Sex
This isn’t the first time that Edelman’s sexual exploits have put him on blast. In 2015, Sabrina Dudish used a post-sex picture of Edelman as her icebreaker on Tinder. The caption across the photo reads, “Just f**ked Edelman no lie.” A screenshot of her profile went viral today — three days after the Pats’ Super Bowl win — revealing her first name and making her an instant villain in Patriots Nation.
5. Edelman Has Recently Been Linked to Victoria Secret Model Adriana Lima
A few days before the story of Edelman’s paternity of Rose’s baby appeared, TMZ reported that the wide receiver had been seen out-and-about in Nantucket with Victoria Secret model Adriana Lima. The piece notes that the couple were “not exclusive.”
