Kylian Mbappe is reportedly dating Ines Rau - the first transgender model to appear on the cover of Playboy but the footballer has also been linked to Belgian model Rose Bertram.
The Paris Saint Germain star took on Argentina in the World Cup finals over the weekend, with France narrowly missing out on lifting the trophy in a penalty shootout. Mbappe won the title of Golden Boot being the first player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final since Geoff Hurst in 1966.
Mbappe had already helped his team lift the World Cup trophy in 2018 and was hoping to become the youngest player to win a second tournament since Pele.
The famous footballer has been romantically linked with Rau since the pair were spotted on a yacht in Cannes in May. However, there are rumours that he is now dating 27-year-old Belgian model Rose Bertram.
So who is Kylian Mbappe’s girlfriend? Here’s everything we know so far.
Who is Kylian Mbappe dating?
Mbappe is currently romantically linked to models Rau and Bertram, however he has not publicly confirmed he is in a relationship with either. In May he was spotted with Rau at the Cannes Film Festival and together on a yacht, with photos of him lifting up the model being shared on social media.
However, it’s been reported by The Sports Grail, that the footballer is now allegedly linked to Bertram after meeting her in the fashion industry.
Who is Ines Rau?
Rau was Playboy magazine’s first openly transgender cover model and Playboy’s Playmate of the Month for November 2017.
Reported by Entertainment Tonight, in an interview for Playboy she said: “I lived a long time without saying I was transgender. I dated a lot and almost forgot. I was scared of never finding a boyfriend and being seen as weird. Then I was like, ‘You know, you should just be who you are. It’s a salvation to speak the truth about yourself, whether it’s your gender, sexuality, whatever. The people who reject you aren’t worth it. It’s not about being loved by others; it’s about loving yourself.’”
She added: “When I was doing this shoot, I was thinking of all those hard days in my childhood. And now everything happening gives me so much joy and happiness. I thought, ‘Am I really going to be a Playmate -- me?’ It’s the most beautiful compliment I’ve ever received. It’s like getting a giant bouquet of roses.”
Who is Rose Bertram?
The 27-year-old model was born in Belgium, with her father being from the country and her mother from Cape Verde. She started modelling at the age of 13 and has represented brands including L’Oreal and H&M. She has over 800,000 followers on Instagram, with one of them being Mbappe.
Bertram has previously dated Paris Saint Germain footballer Gregory Van Der Wiel. The couple were together for eight years and they share two children together.
In an interview with Vogue in 2016 she reflected on getting into the modelling industry, Bertram said: “I remember when I started people always told me that it would never work out.” She added: “They told me that I’d never get to do big jobs because I wasn’t tall enough, didn’t have a very skinny high-fashion body type. Right now we’re in 2016, and it’s so important to give chances to girls who aren’t tall, who have curves, and are different. That way you can tell that fashion is changing, now it’s all about who you are.”
