Model Olivia Culpo and NFL star Christian McCaffrey have been dating since 2019, but they almost never got together because of a rule Culpo made after a bad relationship.
Here’s more about it and a few things you probably didn’t know about the pair, including how much older the former Miss Universe is than the returning San Francisco 49ers.
Before McCaffrey, Culpo dated a number of famous men, including singer Nick Jonas, Olympian Ryan Lochte, and fellow soccer players Danny Amendola and Tim Tebow.
Culpo previously revealed that she had a bad relationship with an athlete. According to i feel pretty Actor, this person repeatedly cheated on her. “I was dating an athlete and that relationship was horrible,” she said. Because of this experience, Culpo vowed not to date any more athletes. But then McCaffrey came along and restored her confidence to date someone else in this profession.
“He’s just the best, I really feel like he’s everything I could ever ask for,” she gushed to Entertainment Tonight. “So I don’t have to worry about anything. I think that’s why I didn’t want to date an athlete…because there’s a reputation there.”
She added: “He just comes from a great family. We have a lot in common there. I feel like you can really tell who a person is by the people who raise them, and I just love his parents so much. They have a great relationship.”
