Among the pomp and celebration at Tom Brady’s enshrinement into the New England Patriots Hall of Fame, one woman stole the show.

Camille Kostek, the model and TV host, arrived with her longtime boyfriend and Brady’s former teammate Rob Gronkowski.

Kostek, the former SI Swimsuit model, dazzled in a brown sequined dress as she walked the red carpet at Gillette Stadium for the event.

She’s no stranger to Patriots events – as Kostek, the Connecticut native, was a former Patriots cheerleader.

After that, she went on to star in television commercials and landed on the SI Swimsuit cover for 2019.

Kostek and Gronkowski were one of 60,000 people who made the trek to Gillette to honor Brady on a special day. 

Brady got into the Hall-of-Fame earlier than the four years that are typically required in order for entry to be acknowledged as one of the franchise’s all-time greats.

It got announced by team owner Robert Kraft at a game back in September that the grace period would be waived in order to induct Brady on “6/12”.

That date is special as it honors the quarterback’s number, 12, and the number of Super Bowl championships he won with New England, six.

Among the celebrities who were present at the ceremony included Boston comedian Bill Burr – who delivered an opening monologue that began the proceedings.

Priot to Burr, American rapper Jay-Z performed his song ‘Public Service Announcement’ – the song Brady used as his intro anthem throughout his time in New England.

NBC Sports commentator Mike Tirico also came out and promised those in the crowd that this was ‘not a roast, this is a toast’ to Brady. 

A big part of that included a roundtable with a number of Patriots legends like Ty Law, Devin McCourty, Willie McGinest, and Vince Wilfork.

A number of former players also offered their congratulations including Ed Reed, Ray Lewis, Michael Strahan, Jason Taylor, Eli Manning, Charles Woodson, Richard Sherman, and Patrick Mahomes. 

At one point, Brady’s longtime rival Peyton Manning made an appearance on stage where the pair recapped key moments in their contentious on-field duels.

Also present was New Jersey native Jon Bon Jovi – who is a close friend of Kraft’s and whose music sound tracked Patriots touchdowns for years at Gillette Stadium.

Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy was also there with three of his employees – a reunion of the group known as the ‘Brady Four’ that were arrested during a sit-in at NFL headquarters in 2015 as a protest of the investigation into ‘Deflategate’.

It all ended with Brady being presented with a red jacket and the quarterback declaring: ‘I am a Patriot’ to a delighted crowd of over 60,000.
