Initially, the relationship seemed like an uncomfortable subject for the model as she began trying to dodge the questions saying, ‘Do I have to talk about that?’
Culpo believed at the time they were going to get married, but it didn’t work out that way and the couple ended their relationship in 2015.
She added, ‘I moved to LA with him. I had no brand, no money and I was in love. That was great right, but when he broke up with me, I was kind of left with no sense of identity.’

‘My whole identity was in him,’ she said.
‘Which is a very common story of a young person in love. I thought we were going to get married, I thought all the things, and I just remember night after night looking up at my ceiling in my apartment that I couldn’t afford thinking to myself how am I going to pay my rent,’ she said.
Olivia says that the breakup was ‘a serious, pivotal moment for me.’
She added there were times she ‘couldn’t even afford my groceries.’
It ‘taught me that you can’t give up.’
Olivia is currently dating star running-back Christian McCaffrey who recently got traded from the Carolina Panthers to the San Francisco 49ers.

Proud of her man: Olivia shared an emotional video as she congratulated her star running-back boyfriend McCaffrey on his trade from the Panthers to the 49ers
This deal gives the 49ers the offensive power needed to compete for a Super Bowl title.
McCaffrey was the eighth-round draft pick in 2017 and has a contract through the 2025 season with a base salary of USD 11 million in 2022 and 2023.
Culpo and McCaffrey began dating in 2019 and became openly public about their love on Valentine’s day 2020 when the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model posted a picture of the duo with the caption, ‘Happy Valentine’s Day to my best friend. Thank you for changing my life and showing me the kind of love I always wanted but never thought was possible.’
In July 2020, the pair got a dog together, and in March 2021, Christian named his boat after Olivia.
In June 2022, Culpo posted photos of the happy couple celebrating three years together.
