While Kylian Mbappe was preparing for the World Cup final between France and Argentina, his rumored lover Rose Bertram was doing some creative footwork of her own.
On the day of the largest football match in history, stunning model Rose Bertram, 28, made an appearance at a fashion presentation in Qatar, offering her one million Instagram followers a peek into her glamorous life.
She posted pictures of herself dressed in a red and white football shirt-inspired outfit.
She wrote in the captions of the pictures: “What a beautiful night walking for Qatar Fashion United! Big thank you to Carine Roitfeld, CR Runway and Vladimir Roitfeld.”
The Belgian beauty has reportedly captured Mbappe’s heart in recent months, according to publications in his native France.
Although both Mbappe and Rose Bertram are yet to officially confirm that they are in a relationship, their paths crossed in Paris during one of their fashion excursions.
As it stand, the football community is now aware or suspecting that there is something good going on between Bertram and Mbappe.
Previous Romance With Dutch Star
Just five months ago, Bertram revealed her traumatic breakup with Gregory van der Wiel, who was formerly of Ajax and has 46 caps for the Netherlands.
When she was only 19, they began dating. During their brief relationship, she followed his job from Paris to Istanbul, Sardinia, and then to Toronto.
As van der Wiel’s mental health issues, such as anxiety and panic attacks, started to influence the pair, rifts started to appear in their marriage.
Before then, the relationship has produced two children.
Earlier this year, Rose said that: “There are a lot of people who deal with this.
“It’s not talked about enough and in my case if you don’t know enough about it, it’s very difficult to understand that person.”
“It hasn’t always been easy to deal with. It breaks my heart that he feels this way and that I can’t help it.”
Sadly, they grew apart after eight years of love. She, however, claimed that her friendship with Gregory is still strong.
Rose stated: “He is the father of my children and I would be very sorry if we broke up in a bad way.”
Nevertheless, Bertram’s career continued to grow despite van der Wiel’s issues off the field.
Her mother was able to get her accepted by a modeling agency when she was 13 years old.
She was chosen by the Dominique agency to participate in a picture session with renowned German photographer Juergen Teller when she was 16 years old.
Bertram has acted in commercials over the years for brands like H&M, L’Oréal, Hunkemöller, Primark, and Agent Provocateur.
She was one of the models hired to advertise the failed music festival Fyre Festival, as Netflix watchers may have seen.
Bertram was the subject of an exclusive photo shoot by American rapper Tyler, the Creator in 2015 for the vogue Oyster.
She made history by being the first model from Belgium to appear in the Sports Illustrated Swim Issue that year.
Kylian Mbappe and Privacy
Mbappe has always kept his personal affairs discreet and kept his girlfriends a secret too.
Recently, there have been rumors linking Kylian Mbappé to Belgian model Rose Bertram. The Sun reports that it is said to have encountered Mbappe during his entrance into the fashion industry while residing in Paris.
Gregory van der Wiel, a fellow football player, dated Bertram. Since she was 17, the two have been together, and their child was born in Toronto.
Van der Wiel and Mbappé were teammates at Monaco, but since the former left the team in 2016, a year before the 23-year-old joined Paris St. Germain, their paths did not cross.
Bertram and Mbappé are rumored to be dating even though they haven’t been officially spotted together. The two are Instagram followers of one another, which fuels conspiracy ideas.
Kylian Mbappe and model Ines Rau were said to be dating earlier this year. After she made an appearance at the Cannes Film Festival, the two were seen making out in Cannes in May.
Many onlookers questioned whether the two were dating as the footballer cradled her in his arms on the beach.
It was alleged for years that he was dating Alicia Aylies, a former Miss France.
But it now seems as though Bertram, a mother of two, has won over the PSG attacker.
She said that she is prepared to move past van der Wiel.
“I am currently single and ready to meet someone new,” she claimed few months ago.
Perhaps the best player in football right now is that person.
