We got our first look at Ricki Lander’s baby when she posted a picture of her little girl on Instagram on Mother’s Day.
“This year has been overflowing with love, light and blessings,” the girlfriend of Patriots owner Robert Kraft wrote. “A beautiful little angel came into our lives. She has brought more love and joy than I ever could have imagined. I love you so much little one...Thank you for choosing me as your mommy! #mothersday.”
The use of the pronoun “our” is curious considering that Kraft, who’s dated the 38-year-old actress/model off and on since 2011, has said he is not the baby’s father. In March, after The New York Post reported that Lander had given birth to a baby last fall, a Patriots spokesman issued a statement saying: “While Robert Kraft is not the biological father, he is thrilled with Ricki’s blessing of having a healthy child.”
Kraft and Lander have been very much together since then, attending various Oscar parties together in March, sitting courtside at recent Celtics playoff games, and posing hand in hand at last week’s Met gala in New York. (The 76-year-old Kraft wore a black tuxedo with pink pocket square, and Lander wowed in a white dress with pink and purple flowers.)
The Mother’s Day post is the first time Lander has publicly shared picture of her daughter, whose name she hasn’t revealed.
