Saturday’s inaugural amfAR Gala Palm Beach event honored fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger, who shared from the stage that Dr. Dana Blumberg and Robert Kraft got engaged, The New York Post’s Page Six reports.

“Tommy Hilfiger was the honoree and Robert and Dana were both chairs of the event for Tommy,” a source told Page Six. “[Hilfiger] said his ‘good friend Bob Kraft got engaged to Dr. Dana Blumberg’ at the event on stage, speaking to the whole audience.”

Another source told Page Six that attendees noticed that Blumberg was wearing “a giant rock” at the gala.  The astonished source said: “It looked like it was 10-carats or more… It was as big as some of Bob’s Super Bowl rings.”

The gala at the home of top art collectors Amy and John Phelan featured performances by Christina Aguilera and Parson James, plus an auction by Simon de Pury, according to The New York Post.

Kraft was married once before to his college sweetheart, Myra Kraft, the famed philanthropist, and charity volunteer who passed away in 2011. His Wikipedia page states born in Halifax, Nova Scotia; his father was a lay leader at Congregation Kehillath Israel in Brookline and wanted his son to become a rabbi. The Krafts were a Modern Orthodox Jewish family. Robert attended the Edward Devotion School and graduated from Brookline High School.  As a child, he sold newspapers outside of Braves Field in Boston.  During high school, he was unable to participate in most sports because it interfered with his after-school Hebrew studies and observance of the Sabbath.

Blumberg is, according to The New York Post, a “New York-based board-certified ophthalmologist, specializing in eye and vision care, and glaucoma.” She also worked as an Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at Columbia University. It’s unclear whether Blumberg is still affiliated with the school, as well as the New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center.

Blumberg received her medical degree at Saint Louis University School of Medicine in May 2000, according to the New York State Department of Health’s website.”

Blumberg has been attending Patriots games, charity events, and galas since 2019. Kraft was previously in a relationship with actress Ricki Lander. After it ended, Lander gave birth to a child that was rumored to be Kraft’s. Kraft denied the child was his, issuing a statement saying, “Last fall, Ricki Noel Lander became the proud mother of a beautiful, healthy baby,” the spokesperson wrote in an email to the newspaper. “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.”
