New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft revealed that he will be getting married to 47-year-old Dr. Dana Blumberg.
During the inaugural amfAR Gala Palm Beach which honored Tommy Hilfiger, the 70-year-old notable fashion designer decided to share with the entire audience that 80-year-old Kraft recently got engaged to his girlfriend.
The couple has been rumored to be dating since 2019, the relationship going public in June of that year when they appeared hand in hand at the French Open. In addition, they attended the Women’s World Cup soccer finals together in August 2019. Following that summer, they have been spotted at multiple events alongside each other.
Since the couple has been spotted at multiple highly publicized events, it is no surprise that rumors began circulating about whether or not Kraft was with the doctor. Although Blumberg was seen sporting a ring that looked to be “10-carats or more”, according to the New York Post, their engagement was only confirmed in March of 2022 by Tommy Hilfiger.
Blumberg reportedly completed her medical degree in May of 2000 at Saint Louis University School of Medicine. She went on to begin her residency, which was completed in 2004 at Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, Ohio. Blumberg specializes in eye and vision care, as well as glaucoma. The doctor was even recognized in the New York Times Magazine’s list of Super Rising Doctors in 2013.

This also is not Kraft’s first engagement; the billionaire was married to Myra Hiatt Kraft for almost 50 years before she tragically passed away from ovarian cancer in 2011. A year after his first wife’s death, he began dating actress Ricki Noel Lander.
The pair broke up in 2018, only a year before Kraft was charged with two accounts of soliciting a prostitute, according to PEOPLE. This triggered a chain of events that lead him to be accused of human trafficking through various Florida massage parlors. He pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges and eventually charges were dropped, but he still relayed an acknowledgment of guilt.
Noting that his actions, “hurt and disappointed my family, my close friends, my co-workers, our fans and many others who rightfully hold me to a higher standard,” Kraft apologized for his wrongdoings.
