Olivia Culpo Opens Up About Her Long-Distance Relationship With Star Running Back Christian McCaffrey

Long-distance relationships require an intense amount of work. When you don't have the luxury of seeing the person you love on an everyday basis, you need to come up with clever alternative solutions. Sadly, the odds are stacked against you, and this almost always ends in disaster.

But every now and again, long-distance couples defy the insurmountable odds and find a way to make it work. Sometimes, they even get a little help from the universe in the form of a blockbuster NFL trade deal — just like model/actress Olivia Culpo and her star-studded running back beau, Christian McCaffrey.

Olivia Culpo is a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model who first rose to prominence back in 2012 after she easily secured the title of "Miss Universe." Her new series, The Culpo Sisters, focuses on the daily lives of Olivia and her two sisters Aurora, 33, and Sophia, 25. "In our family, there's [sic] no boundaries," Olivia said in the show's trailer. "There's no filter and there's no shortage of drama." No shortage of drama? Where do I sign up?!

The pair were set up by a mutual friend and dated off and on for seven months before cementing their relationship in February 2020. Up until very recently, Christian was starting at running back for the Carolina Panthers, which made finding the time to see one another difficult — especially during football season. But now, thanks to a major trade deal initiated by the San Francisco 49ers, Christian and Olivia now find themselves on the same coast for the first time in their relationship.

"I'm So Proud of You Christian!" Olivia Wrote via Instagram

"Seeing your light shine is one of my favorite things in life and I'm beyond excited and grateful for this next chapter in Cali, the place I've called home for the last 8 years."

Fans can expect to see a much more in-depth look at Olivia and Christian's relationship via The Culpo Sisters. Although according to Olivia, some of the biggest things pertaining to their relationship took place after the cameras had already finished rolling.

"It's really exciting, you know," Olivia explained in an interview with Us Weekly. "There's so much to be grateful for and I don't wanna give too much away because we do get into this a lot in the show but... I know that everything's gonna work out exactly how it's supposed to. I'm really excited for that."

San Francisco 49ers fans have a lot to be excited about, too. During his six-year stint with the Panthers, McCaffrey rushed for 3980 yards, put up an additional 3292 yards through the air, and secured 50 TDs.
