Miami Heat forward Kevin Love missed the team’s flight for Game 5 of the NBA Finals in Denver but for a good reason. The five-time NBA All-Star with a championship under his belt became a new dad! Kevin Love and wife Kate Bock welcomed their first child together during the weekend. They kept the pregnancy under wraps and have not disclosed details about their newborn either. But the spotlight is bright on Kevin Love’s wife. So we deep-dive into her background in this Kate Bock wiki.
Kate Bock’s Family
Kate Lynne Bock was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, on January 30, 1988. Her parents are Doug and Laura Bock.
She grew up in Canada alongside her sister, Anna Bock, and brother, Ian Bock.
Kevin Love’s Wife Is an International Model
Bock attended a French immersion school and is fluent in the French language. She also had outstanding athletic prowess in swimming, soccer, baseball, and field hockey.
However, she opted to enter the fashion industry instead of pursuing athletics. And her scouting story is one for the books.
At the age of 12, she was discovered by a modeling scout from Lizbell while in a swimming pool. But as a child, she wasn’t exactly model material.
“I had braces, and I was a little gangly. Not a little—I was really tall and gangly,” Bock explained.
She wasn’t modeling full-time. And while on summer vacation, she opted for camp rather than modeling gigs in New York.
However, after graduating high school, she took modeling seriously and moved to Paris. She shared an apartment with other models in France’s fashion capital.
Bock would go on to feature in Sports Illustrated from 2013 to 2017. She was named “Rookie of the Year” for her first appearance in the magazine at just 21 years old. Reportedly, she won 41% of the votes from online readers.

Kate Bock’s modeling career took off when she signed with Lizbell Agency and Elite Model Management. She has modeled for Victoria’s Secret, featured in magazines like Maxim and Elle, and international editions of publications like Vogue.
The international model has appeared in ad campaigns for global brands like Guess, L’Oréal, Kérastase, Banana Republic, and Ralph Lauren.
Bock had a small cameo in a music video for The Lonely Island’s “Jack Sparrow.” Although brief, it’s very memorable and even features the fantastic Michael Bolton. You can check out the video right here.
Kevin Love’s wife is a certified lifeguard. She loves skydiving, and she’s an avid snowboarder. In fact, she even sleeps with a snowboard under her bed in case an opportunity ever presents itself!
Bock also loves chocolate lava cake (who doesn’t?) and has a never-ending love for Paul Newman. She can also recite every Sex and the City episode by heart.
Kate Bock’s Businesses
While modeling occupies a considerable chunk of her life, Kevin Love’s wife has other ventures. She launched a jewelry line, Cattura Jewelry. The line consists of eye-catching body chains designed by Bock herself, handcrafted by an Italian designer, and made in New York.
Bock styles many of her looks. These include her swimsuit photoshoots, which feature body chains from her jewelry line.
“Every time I’m in yoga, spin class or on the beach, girls are always coming up to me and asking where my body chain is from. So I decided to make them available to anyone!” said Bock.
“Cattura” means “to capture.” So, Bock explains the idea behind her business name is that the body chain “captures your body.”
From working at Dairy Queen to becoming a big-time model, Bock has never looked back. Moreover, 2021 was a big year for her professional life. She would launch her swimwear capsule collection with the Australian brand Bond-Eye. She was also named the chief brand officer for sparkling water brand Pompette and became a creative consultant for the shopping app, Verishop.
However, her net worth hasn’t been calculated yet, so we don’t exactly know how much this beauty is banking. On the other hand, her basketball-playing husband is believed to have s a net worth estimated at $100.0 million based on his lucrative NBA salary alone!
Kate Bock and Kevin Love’s Relationship and Kids
A photographer who worked individually with Kate Bock and Kevin Love set the two up in 2015, and they’ve been together since. She also accompanied him to the White House when then-President Obama invited Love and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
They announced their engagement in January 2021 when Love proposed at Bock’s birthday dinner. Kevin Love and Kate Bock married on June 25, 2022, at the New York Public Library, inspired by The Great Gatsby.
Bock’s connection to Ralph Lauren came through to create her dream Grace Kelly-inspired wedding dress. Her sister, Anna, was part of the bridal party.
When the Miami Heat flew to Denver for Game 5 of the NBA finals, Kevin Love was conspicuous by his absence but for good reason. Kevin Love and his wife welcomed their first child on Saturday, June 10. They have kept the identity of their baby under wraps.
Love flew to Denver on his own on Sunday and was game-ready for Monday. However, the new dad says he is missing sleep already.
