Dana Blumberg and Robert Kraft attend the Elton John AIDS Foundation 25th Year And Honors Founder Sir Elton John During New York Fall Gala at Cathedral of St. John the Divine on November 7, 2017 in New York City.

Congratulations to the New England Patriots team owner Robert Kraft, who tied the knot over on Friday night in a surprise wedding (not to them, to us). Kraft married Dr. Dana Blumberg in New York City, after dating for about 3 years, and engaged for nearly 6 months, according to WCVB and The New York Post’s Page Six. The 81 year old and his 47 year old bride invited about 250 people. to what they called a “Kickoff and a Touchdown” party. Guests didn’t know they were attending a wedding. And what a guest list they had!

In the photo shared to the New York Post’s Page Six, you can see everyone from rapper Meek Mill, Sir Elton John and Ed Sheeran (who all performed), to Tom Brady, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Jon Bon Jovi and his wife Dorthea were there, of course. Other former Pats players there included Vince Wilfork,  Ty Law, Richard Seymour, Randy Moss, Troy Brown and Jerod Mayo; Drew Bledsoe; and current players Devin McCourty, Matthew Slater and David Andrews. What a lineup!


See all the photos from Page Six HERE. 

According to People, the bride, Dr. Dana Blumberg is a doctor of opthamology.


8 Celebrities Who Are New England Patriots Fans

  • 1. Scotty McCreery

    Scotty has long professed his love for our Pats! What’s a guy from North Carolina doing supporting a New England NFL team? It’s in his blood. His father is from the Kittery area of Maine, and instilled the love of New England sports into his son. We are so happy to see Scotty is passing his passion onto his family. From his dog to his unborn son.

    He fed his dog, Moose, on a healthy diet of Patriots football from just a young pup.

    Baby McCreery -to-be is getting a little extra help becoming a fan from the Kraft family.

    Baby’s first jersey!!!

  • 2. Ben Affleck

    Well, you knew this name was coming. We all know Jennifer Lopez’s new hubby grew up in Cambridge. We’ve seen him at many a Red Sox game. But, of course the Academy Award winning actor is also a Patriots fan. He has tried to pass on his love to his children, but as Ben Affleck told Jimmy Kimmel back in 2019, his son isn’t having it, because, “he’s from LA.” Fast forward this video to about 3:34 and see what Ben did to his son’s room. Side note: As you would expect, Ben’s good friend, and Good Will Hunting co-star/co-writer, and former Cambridge resident, Matt Damon is also a big Patriots fan.

  • 3. Elizabeth Banks

    The comedic actress and host of Press Your Luck also lives in a house divided. Banks grew up in Pittsfield, MA. She is one of 4 siblings, and her dad worked for GE, her mom worked in a bank, all of whom are Patriots fans.


  • 4. Chris Evans

    Captain America loves the Patriots. Chris Evans was born in Boston and grew up in Sudbury, MA. He is also from a big family of Patriots fans, one of 4 siblings of a denist dad and Concord Youth Theater artistic director mom! He even showed up in the Patriots locker room back in 2017.

  • Jon Bon Jovi

    You expect rocker Steven Tyler to be a Pats fan. He started his band in Boston. But Jon Bon Jovi is a Jersey boy, through and through. Over the years, his friendship with Patriots owner Robert Kraft has given him a sweet seat at games. He even gave the Pats permission to use a Bon Jovi song during games. You occasionnally hear “This is Our House” at Gillette Stadium. But as he shows in the Instagram post, he has been a fan for much longer.



  • 6. Mindy Kaling

    Like Ben, Mindy Kaling grew up in Cambridge. The Office actress also earned her degree at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. So, yeah…New England through and through. She has tried to instill her love of the Patriots to her daughter, but apparently it’s not working.

  • 7. John Krasinski

    Another actor from The Office has showed his love of his hometown team for many years. John Krasinski, another wicked smaht Pats fan, grew up in Newton, MA and went to Brown University in Providence. He posted this in 2017 ahead of the Super Bowl game.

  • Mark Wahlberg

    Growing up in Boston, Mark Walhlberg and his family have been big Boston sports fans forevah! His love of the Patriots is evident. He has been friends with the Krafts for quite some time.
