When the Green Bay Packers selected Lukas Van Ness in the 2023 NFL Draft, the spotlight was on the ladies in his life. They include Lukas Van Ness’ sister and Cole Kmet’s sister. And on the first day of the draft, NFL fans discovered that Lukas Van Ness’ girlfriend is Frankie Kmet, the sister of the Chicago Bears TE. Now fans are waiting to see if Frankie Kmet’s loyalties lie with the Bears or Packers. But her connection to the league goes far deeper than that. We reveal what that is and more about Lukas Van Ness’ girlfriend in this Frankie Kmet wiki.

Frankie Kmets Family

Frankie Kmet was born on July 6, 2001, in Illinois. She is the only daughter of four children born to Frank and Kandace Kmet.

Her mother, Kandace Kmet, is a real estate agent. And her father, Frank Kmet, is a former NFL player.

He played defensive end for the Purdue Boilermakers before the Buffalo Bills selected him in the 1992 NFL Draft. He later signed with the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. However, hampered by an injury, Frank never saw any actual playtime in the NFL before leaving professional football in 1996.

Frank Kmet has no regrets about his short-lived football career and encouraged his kids to keep a positive mindset when pursuing athletics. Frank and Kandace Kmet raised their children Cole, Casey, Cooper, and Frankie at Lake Barrington before moving to Arlington Heights shortly before 2020.

Cole and Casey Kmet played baseball and football. While Cole played both sports at Notre Dame, Casey played baseball. The Chicago Bears selected Cole Kmet in the 2020 NFL Draft. And the youngest, Cooper Kmet, currently plays football and baseball at St. Viator High School.

The Kmet siblings’ uncle, Jeff Zgonina, is also a retired NFL pro. He played defensive tackle for eight franchises in 17 seasons from 1993 to 2009. He turned to coaching after retiring and is currently the defensive line coach of the Washington Commanders.

Frankie Kmets Education

Frankie Kmet attended St. Viator High School with her brothers and graduated in 2020. Although she has kept her college studies under wraps, she initially studied online while in Florida at the height of the pandemic. And she’s posted on Instagram from Florida several times since then.

Some reports suggest she attended Notre Dame like her brothers. And others claim she attends the University of Iowa, where she has attended Hawkeyes football games.

These are, however, rumors with no direct confirmation from Frankie Kmet.

Frankie Kmet and Lukas Van NessRelationship

Lukas Van Ness grew up in Barrington, Illinois. And the Van Ness and Kmet families reportedly lived near each other before they moved to Arlington Heights and were quite close.

Frankie Kmet and Lukas Van Ness have been together since at least early 2022. The footballer and his sister, Ella Van Ness, also appeared on Kmet’s Instagram around that time.

Their relationship has been social media official since Kmet’s 21st birthday in 2022. NFL fans only realized Lukas Van Ness is dating Cole Kmet’s sister at the 2023 NFL Draft.

The Kmet family is well experienced with draft days. And they were excited to celebrate the Green Bay Packers selecting Van Ness 13th overall.

Van Ness’ dad unintentionally got “handsy” with Kmet when his son was selected. That incident weirded out social media users, but they quickly realized that Lukas Van Ness’ girlfriend is Cole Kmets sister.

Now it only remains to be seen who the Kmet family will cheer for should the Bears and Packers face off in the near future.
