Supermodel and former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo have been in four relationships in her lifetime. Here is a glimpse into the life of the star who is currently dating Football running back Christian McCaffrey.


American fashion influencer Olivia Culpo is one beautiful lady, and she knows it. She has bagged several titles as a beauty queen, which is no surprise, seeing her stunning facial and bodily physique.

In 2012, the beauty queen was named Miss Rhode Island USA, and she also went on to clinch the title of Miss USA in June of that year. The 28-year-old has also won international pageants, including the 2012 Miss Universe Pageant.

Outside her career as a model, Culpo takes her relationship life seriously. Currently, the influencer is romantically involved with American football running back Christian McCaffrey. Let us take a look into their lives as a couple.


McCaffrey and Culpo first met each other through mutual friends. Last year, the supermodel spoke about her relationship and first encounter with her boyfriend via her Instagram live.


While speaking, Culpo revealed that she was asked to meet the NFL player but was skeptical about it because she did not want to date an athlete. According to the TV personality, approaching McCaffrey was not the right move, as she had a bad history with athletes.

Even though Culpo had some reservations about going back into the athlete dating pond, she eventually started a relationship with the 24-year-old, and it has been nothing but a rollercoaster of love and happiness ever since.

Time and again, McCaffrey has displayed his affection for Culpo on the Internet to the admiration of his fans.



Before McCaffrey and Culpo's relationship came into the limelight, the pair were already making headlines as they were spotted out and about several times. In 2019, a source disclosed to US Weekly that the lovebirds were already spending time together.

Before the findings, the Colorado native and his beau had been following each other on Instagram. Not quite long, their relationship was confirmed after they were seen holding hands in Mexico; they looked beautiful.


Since becoming an item, the lovers constantly flaunt images of their moments on social media. In one of those posts, Culpo, her man, was seen on vacation.

The series of images featured a romantic dinner by a fire and a swim in a beautiful pool. In the caption that accompanied the post, Culpo wrote:

"Chasing sunsets w you ❤️."



Culpo is not only a girlfriend to the professional footballer; she is also his biggest supporter. From showing her support by rocking a Panther-themed nail design to being by his side in sickness, the 28-year-old has proven to be a doting girlfriend.

Last year, the "American Satan" actress posted some snaps on her Instagram story that saw her cozying up with her boyfriend, who was running a fever. In the photos, McCaffrey had a thermometer in his mouth.

Culpo tagged her boyfriend "poor sick baby" in the caption and gave him a light kiss on his forehead. Even though the running back could not show off his skills on the field, he had his lady make him feel better till he recovered.



Time and again, McCaffrey has displayed his affection for Culpo on the Internet to the admiration of his fans. He constantly gushes over the model and makes posts about her, insinuating that he is one proud boyfriend.

Once, the 28-year-old made it to Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover, and the 24-year-old took to Instagram to comment on the achievement. He dropped a message for the actress, noting that she is an inspiration to anyone who knew her.


Culpo also reciprocates by sharing images of McCaffrey on her page and coating them with sweet words. An upload showed her, McCaffrey, and their puppy in front of a stunning North Carolina mansion. Culpo tagged her beau and their puppy, her best friends.

While Culpo appears to have found her soulmate, she has previously dated some athletes and celebrities, including— Nick Jonas, NFL players, Tim Tebow and Danny Amendola. She was also rumored to have dated Zedd and Ryan Lochte.
