Does Julian Edelman Have A Wife or Girlfriend?

Julian Edelman does not have a wife and has never been married. His romantic life is shrouded in mystery and as a result, it is not known if he currently has a girlfriend or not. 

Julian Edelman is an NFL star who currently plays as a wide receiver and punt returner for the New England Patriots. The football star has been playing the game he is known for right from his high school days at Woodside High in California.

He went on to play college football, first at San Mateo College, and then, at Kent State University though he was a quarterback all those years. He has been with the Pats since 2009 that he was drafted.

Among other countless notable accomplishments of Julian Edelman at the Patriots, he set a new record in NFL’s history when he became the league’s all-time leader in career punt return average with 13.0 yards per return, surpassing the 12.8-yard average of former Chicago Bear George McAfee.

He has helped the Patriots to win the Super Bowl for a record of three times, and he was named the MVP for the Super Bowl LIII in 2018. Edelman’s career achievements are well known and the ones given above are just the tip of the iceberg.

Here, we have decided to pay attention to the athlete’s personal life and the details of his relationships.

Has Julian Edelman Ever Been Married?

From the available information from credible sources, Julian Edelman is not married and doesn’t have a wife. The NFL player is quite expressive both on and offline. Even on his Instagram page, where he has over 2.7 million followers at the time of writing this, he tends to share virtually every moment in his burgeoning career.

However, when it comes to his family life and romantic flings, the athlete is one of the most secretive persons you can find.

This aspect of Julian’s life has not helped matters as he has given room for the rumor mill to have an endless field day. Some people claim he has once been married in secret. One reason that has advanced this point of view is the fact that the handsome athlete has a daughter.

But, we have found out that his daughter is not a product of any legal union he has ever contracted (You will get further details on this below).

In the absence of any other reason to claim that Julian Edelman was ever married, as we have not seen any evidence that he ever did, let’s discuss his other romantic relationships.

Who Has Julian Edelman Dated?

Just like his marital status, much of Julian Edelman’s romantic life is shrouded in mystery and so, it continues to be a subject of speculations. For instance, recently, the Victoria Secret model from Brazil, Daiane Sodre, posted a picture she took in a posh living room on her Instagram page, and soon, the photo went viral because people (like the lifestyle blogger Terez Owens did here) claimed they recognized the background of the photo to be Julian Edelman’s living room. Check it out for yourself and see how right or wrong these rumor mongers might be:

Neither Sodre nor Edelman has ever confirmed this story. Yet, many people have gone ahead to report as a fact that Edelman has been seeing the model, who is known to have dated singer Joseph Adam Jonas (popularly known as Joe Jonas) in the past.

The reason this rumor started may be that Julian has been seen a couple of times with another Victoria Secret model from Brazil – Adriana Lima, back in 2017. But they have never been seen together after that, irrespective of the fact that they were reported to be introducing each other to their friends and family members at the time.

Again, the rumor mill had something to thrive on as it was speculated that Julian and Lima broke up because the model wanted them to have a kid but the athlete didn’t buy the idea. Still, no one can be certain that their brief fling at the time was anything beyond casual.

The only date Julian Edelman ever had and whom we can say for certain he had a thing with was the Swedish model, Ella Rose, with whom he had a daughter they named Lily.

One of the main challenges brought by Lily’s arrival is Julian’s approach to dating.

“When I go out and meet a fine young lady, I don’t get to just think about me. I’ve got to think about [Lily], so that one’s tricky. But I am dating and [she 100 percent needs to be stepmom material]. If she doesn’t mess with Lil, then she can’t mess with me.”

Lily was born on November 30, 2016, and her mom Ella Rose is a Swedish model, who was never in any deep relationship with Edelman.

It is reported that they were only ‘friends with benefit’ at the time she became pregnant. Edelman even denied that he was responsible for the pregnancy until Ella filed for a paternity test five months later.

Julian Edelman acknowledges that since Lily was born, his priority has changed. He has been remitting an undisclosed amount to Ella Rose for the upkeep of Lily according to the law in California, where Ella resides with Lily.

Julian also says that the kind of romance he needs now is someone who would be good enough as a stepmom to Lily rather than someone to satisfy his own emotional needs. Way to go for ladies who want to hook up with the rich and handsome athlete.

At the moment, Julian Edelman and Elle Rose, who met in 2014, are co-parenting their daughter.
