The former New England Patriots cheerleader -- who's also dating Rob Gronkowski -- was informed about the cover by the editor, MJ Day ... and immediately began bawling! 

It's actually a really cool, raw moment.

Kostek first started working with SI back in 2017 -- and she's always talked about how modeling for the mag was a career goal. Congrats on the cover!!!

There are three versions of the SI Swimsuit Edition cover -- the other two feature Tyra Banks and soccer superstar Alex Morgan

SI has also said the 2019 edition will feature other major female athletes including UFC star Paige VanZant

As for Kostek, she just wrapped up a big weekend in Vegas celebrating Gronk's retirement from the NFL ... where the two danced their faces off and smashed cake by a Vegas pool. 

Camille has also credited Gronk for sticking with modeling and being proud of her body when modeling agencies tried to pressure her into losing weight.

Pamela Anderson and her mom have mastered the art of looking like A MILLION BUCKS while raising a TON O' CASH ... all for an incredible cause.

The "Baywatch" star was front and center in Vancouver where she hosted a charity auction benefiting the Pamela Anderson Foundation. She also had a very sweet date in tow ... her mom, Carol. The gals dressed to the nines for the special event.

We're told tons of cool items were auctioned off ... including signed jerseys from futbol stars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. No doubt those items hauled in a couple of sweet checks but gotta hand it to fashion photographer Raphael Mazzucco, whose career highlights includes shooting Sports Illustrated Swimsuit covers.

Mazzucco donated a piece dubbed "Beauty and Light." Pam couldn't resist posing next to it for a pic. But, we know why she's REALLY grinning ear-to-ear -- the piece fetched a whopping $30k!!!

BTW ... the Pamela Anderson Foundation supports organizations that protect human, animal and environmental rights. The foundation's been at it for 20 years. #KeepGrindingPam

EXCLUSIVE

UFC star Paige VanZant says she fell in love with herself all over again ... and it's all 'cause she's a super sexy bikini model now!!!

TMZ Sports spoke with PVZ about what it was like to get picked for this year's S.I. Swimsuit Edition ... and she says it was a major, much-needed confidence boost.

"Even being in the UFC, I've always have had those body insecurities," Paige tells us.

"After the shoot, seeing all the pictures, seeing the way they look and the reaction I'm getting ... I have been like feelin' myself lately!"

Not everyone is happy with the results though ... just ask her husband, Austin Vanderford.

"My husband is getting really sick of it, 'cause I love myself a little bit TOO much right now," Paige joked.

PVZ says the shoot was an incredible experience ... and despite having to make a few adjustments to make it easier on her broken arm, she's thrilled with the results.

Check out the clip ... Paige says she was totally comfortable hangin' out in her bikini with a crew following her around ... but what happened when she came face-to-face with a yacht full of tourists??? 

Check out the vid ... and check out the issue when it drops in May!!!

Breaking News

Camille Kostek won't be hard to spot in Mexico this weekend ... 'cause Rob Gronkowski's insanely attractive girlfriend is rockin' a neon yellow bikini ... and TMZ Sports has the pics!!

The NFL superstar and S.I. Swimsuit model are hangin' in Cabo San Lucas with friends Eric and Jessie James Decker ... and although it's only been a short time, there's already tons of heat.

Camille posted a pic of her bikini of choice -- it's highlighter yellow and brilliant --- and this time around, Gronk got his own matching trunks!!

Of course, the couple is known for posting sexy pics together wherever they go -- who can forget their awesome trip to Jamaica last year for Camille's birthday?!

It's great to see the couple keeping their tradition alive in Cabo ... and (fingers crossed) we'll get a shot of the foursome together here soon.

Gronk is coming off a Super Bowl win and Camille will be in the next SI Swim issue dropping in May ... so it's tough to argue against these 2 being the hottest couple out there right now.

So yeah ... go ahead and celebrate. We're all winners here.

MLB's Trevor Bauer I've Got 1st Date Rules ... 'No Feelings' Allowed!!!

2/19/2019 8:40 AM PST
Breaking News

Trevor Bauer might be the MLB's best pitcher ... but he's the WORST first date ever -- 'cause he's got a set of rules for potential romantic partners, including, "No feelings" allowed!

The Cleveland Indians superstar just revealed when he goes on dates with girls ... he's blunt and to the point -- telling them straight-up he'll NEVER be their boyfriend.

"I have three rules," Bauer tells Sports Illustrated.

No. 1? "No feelings."

No. 2? "No social media posts about me while we’re together."

No. 3? "I sleep with other people. I’m going to continue to sleep with other people. If you’re not O.K. with that, we won’t sleep together, and that’s perfectly fine."

Think Bauer -- who's known as baseball's mad scientist for the painstaking way he approaches pitching -- is being selfish???

Think again ... the ace actually says he's HELPING his romantic partners -- 'cause, "I imagine if I was married at this point, I would be a very bad husband."

Bauer says he's too devoted to pitching to deal with a girlfriend right now.

Bottom line ... if TB pops up on your Bumble this week -- SWIPE LEFT!!!!!!!!!

Camille Kostek Modeling Agencies Told Me to Lose Weight ... Gronk Said Don't!

1/30/2019 2:45 PM PST

Rob Gronkowski's smokin' hot GF says modeling agencies pressured her to drop serious weight in order to get gigs ... but the NFL superstar urged her to not give in to their demands.

Camille Kostek said Gronk made her realize she shouldn't have to conform to the crazy, unrealistic standards in traditional modeling ... and it turned out to be some of the best advice she's ever gotten. 

"He had seen me get rejected by a lot of agencies," Kostek said on Mark Dohner's "Livin' Large" podcast ... explaining how she was sometimes told to lose 15 pounds in 3 weeks or to shed inches off her thighs in order to be considered for jobs. 

"I was like, I just don't want to do that. [Gronk] was like, 'Do you even want a body like that?' And I was like, 'No.' And he was like, 'Yeah, I don't even want you to be like that.'"

Turns out, it was great advice -- the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition tapped Kostek to be a rookie model in 2018, and her career has exploded ever since. 

And now, those same agencies that wanted her to starve herself are probably begging for a callback. How's that for karma?! 

There's a bunch more in the interview ... Camille also talks about her time as a Patriots cheerleader ... and how she linked up with Christian Yelich for the California Strong campaign for the CA wildfires and Borderline Bar shooting.

Camille Kostek Gronk's GF Claps Back at Pats Haters!

1/21/2019 11:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Why do so many people HATE the New England Patriots -- the greatest dynasty in the history of pro sports?  

That's the question we posed to Rob Gronkowski's smokin' hot girlfriend, Camille Kostek -- and her answer was simple ... JEALOUSY! 

"You hate us 'cause you ain't us," the former Pats cheerleader told us at LAX. 

Kostek -- who's also a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition model -- just got off the plane from Kansas City where she battled freezing temperatures to support the future Hall of Famer ... and told us how the couple celebrated the big win. 

So, how does Gronk feel about going to ANOTHER Super Bowl?? 

"He's amped, he's so pumped," Kostek said while admitting the constant winning NEVER gets old! 

As for the big game, Kostek says she's friends with Rams QB Jared Goff -- but that goes out the window on February 3 ... 

"All I gotta say is, good luck! I think it's gonna be a great game ... Patriots coming out with a W."

Alexis Ren Cheeky Beach Day Down in Mexico

1/4/2019 7:27 AM PST

Alexis Ren's got a wide variety of looks for the camera, but in these shots of the model's sexy sea romp there's a constant ... her itty bitty black bikini.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2018 Rookie of the Year is kicking off 2019 down in Mexico at the Casa Malca Tulum resort, and recruited a lucky guy Thursday to snap some sultry shots of her splashing around.

Alexis was mostly all smiles for the mystery photog, but the cheekiness led to her flipping him the bird at one point.

Not sure what he did ... but Alexis didn't seem to hold it against him too long.

Earlier in the day, Alexis tweeted out a cryptic message -- "If you're reading this, I miss you" -- which fans believe is directed at her former "Dancing with the Stars" partner, Alan Bersten.

She didn't confirm, but if Alan sees these photos ... it's safe to assume he misses her too. 

Camille Kostek Defends Gronk's Missed Tackle Give Him Another Chance!!

12/12/2018 11:21 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Gronkowski missed the game-saving tackle in the Dolphins game on Sunday ... but his S.I. model GF tells TMZ Sports it was NOT a mistake havin' him on the field.

We got Camille Kostek out at the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year ceremony at The Beverly Hilton in L.A. ... when she explained why Bill Belichick should give Gronk more burn on defense.

"I don't play football, I don't make the rules -- I support whatever he does. So if he needs to be put at defense again, I say, 'Go for it, baby!!'"

Of course, Patriots fans were pissed ... and confused about why Gronk -- a 6'7" tight end -- was on defense in the first place for Kenyan Drake's miracle sprint.

But, Camille says her BF ain't one-dimensional -- and she knows her man will get it done if he's in the same spot again in the future.

"I mean, look what he does as a tight end. He doesn't just catch the ball and get in the end zone. He's blocking, he does it all. So, yeah, I think I can see him doing it again!"

As for the couple's future ... we had to ask if wedding bells are coming down the pipe ... and while Camille says not right now ... she definitely didn't say no to the idea down the road!!

Elle Macpherson The Body Takes a Major Blow

11/7/2018 7:01 AM PST

Elle Macpherson got body checked after taking a nasty tumble getting into her car ... and it appears to be the fault of some pesky footwear. 

The iconic Aussie model was leaving a flower shop in Sydney, where she had a bouquet in her arms ... and some fancy high-heeled boots on her feet. She tells the paps who'd gathered around that she was done with photos ... but gravity wasn't done with her.

Check out the clip -- Elle completely collapses trying to enter the vehicle, which spurs her driver into action as he tries getting her up. She appears to be okay, but struggles a bit.

Bet this wouldn't have happened if she was in her natural habitat, just sayin'. #SplishSplash

Breaking News

What'd NFL star Danny Amendola get for his 33rd birthday Friday??

NOT A DOPE NEW ROLEX WATCH!!!!!

At least ... not from his ex-GF, Olivia Culpo, anyway -- 'cause the smokin' hot model says she's keepin' the $12,000 ROLEX she presumably bought for her ex-man's big day.

"Looks like this is my present now," she wrote ... "HAPPY BDAY TO ME"

FYI ... Olivia's birthday ain't until May -- so, yeah. SHAAAAAAAAAADE.

As we previously reported ... Danny was spotted on the beach last weekend with a cutie that wasn't Olivia, while Culpo was out shooting bikini pics for Sports Illustrated -- and reports say Culpo was so pissed, she broke things off right away. 

As for what Danny's now missin' out on (besides the love of Miss Universe 2012) ... Rolex says the watch "was designed to meet the demands of professional racing drivers."

Big bummer for the Dolphins wide receiver. Hope the Miami canoodling was worth it!
