New England Patriots star Julian Edelman may have pulled a Tom Brady ... allegedly knocking up a smokin' hot lady ... and then moving on to date a world-famous supermodel.
TMZ Sports has learned ... a Swedish model, named Ella Rose, has filed paternity docs in L.A. County Superior Court naming Edelman as the father of her unborn child.
Multiple sources tell us ... Edelman and Rose have had a casual relationship for about 2 years -- but nothing was ever official between the two of them.
Sources connected to the situation tell us Rose is 5 and a half months pregnant -- and she's very confident Edelman's the daddy.
We reached out to Edelman's agent -- who was very nice, but said he wouldn't comment on Edelman's personal life.
As we previously reported, Edelman is getting close with Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima.
