Former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo dished to Fox News over her years-long “faith-based” relationship with San Francisco 49ers star running back Christian McCaffrey.
In fact, the “30-year-old model said it was the NFL star’s faith that caused her to break her own rule about never dating an athlete again. The two have been linked since 2019,” the Daily Wire reported.
“The foundation of our relationship has always been God,” Culpo explained. “And I feel like when things are hard or when you’re both overwhelmed [and] there’s not a ton that you can give to each other, you can always rely on God.”
“So I feel like if the foundation is there, if there’s a foundation of that in any relationship, it is incredibly helpful,” she added. “Sometimes you just need help with any relationship. … That’s not only like with friendships. It’s with everything. I think it’s important to be faith-based, truly.”

During the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model’s new reality TV series with her sisters, Sophia and Aurora, “The Culpo Sisters,” the former beauty pageant winner opened up about her dream of becoming a mom and starting a family…
“I feel like I’ve always known that I wanted to have a big family because I came from a big family,” Culpo shared. “I feel like freezing your eggs is a very empowering move. It kind of puts you in control a little bit more. And I would recommend anybody doing it who wants to have kids and is maybe in their 30s and hasn’t had kids yet.
“I hope it could be more accessible for everyone,” she added.
Previously, Culpo dated singer Nick Jonas from 2013-2015, according to Entertainment Tonight. In addition, she has dated other well-known athletes, including former NFL players Tim Tebow and Danny Amendola.
In her Fox News interview, she discussed some of those relationships.
“You see things about yourself that you need to work on,” Culpo said. “It really requires you to turn inward in a weird way, and, of course, when they fail, it’s on a whole other level.
“So I feel like I learned a lot about myself in every single hiccup in life and with every single person that involved. So you can only be grateful of those types of experiences,” she added.
