Ricki Noel Lander, 38, has been dating New England Patriots owner, Robert Kraft for the last five years. Although they’ve been seen together at various red-carpet events, the couple seems to value their privacy, as Lander only made her Instagram page public last year. The statuesque, willowy blonde is an actress whose IMDB page lists small roles in Ant-Man, Blue Bloods, and Unforgettable, among others.
Her relationship with Kraft made headlines last year after she gave birth to a baby daughter named Monarch. Although they’re still together, Kraft has made it clear that the baby is not his.
“Last fall, Ricki Noel Lander became the proud mother of a beautiful, healthy baby,” a statement from Robert Kraft’s spokesperson read, as published by People. “While Robert Kraft is not the biological father, he is thrilled with Ricki’s blessing of having a healthy child. With respect to her family’s privacy, we will not be commenting any further.”
However, the Daily Mail reported that Kraft plans to financially support the kids.
Lander does not post a lot on Instagram and she hasn’t posted a photo since last September but the ones that she’s posted show off her great looks. Here are 10 of the hottest photos that she’s posted on her page.

Ricki Lander and Rober Kraft’s relationship may seem unconventional to some, but it looks like it’s working for them. It’s likely that Kraft is more focused on the Patriots winning a sixth Super Bowl trophy that justifying his love life to anyone, anyway.
