    Is Christian McCaffrey Married? Examining the Star RB’s Relationship with Olivia Culpo

    San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey recently married Olivia Culpo. How did the two meet? Here's everything you need to know about their relationship.

    Christian McCaffrey is the NFL’s reigning Offensive Player of the Year and just helped lead the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance. In his short time with the team, the superstar running back has made a huge impact.

    But this isn’t not McCaffrey’s longest active partnership. That honor instead belongs to his relationship with Olivia Culpo. You might already have some familiarity with Culpo — she was a well-known name long before she linked up with McCaffrey.

    How long have McCaffrey and Culpo been together? Are they married? Here’s everything you need to know about the power couple.

    Who Is Olivia Culpo?

    Culpo first rose to fame back in June of 2012 with her victory in the Miss USA pageant. Her pageantry success continued with a win in the Miss Universe pageant before the calendar year wrapped up.

    McCaffrey was just a teenager at the time, still a few years away from starring at Stanford University. But, much like Culpo, he too was poised to see his name up in lights.

    McCaffrey became a household name midway through his 2015 season at Stanford, at least in football-loving homes. The second-generation baller racked up a mind-boggling 3,864 total yards and 15 touchdowns in a 12-2, Rose Bowl-winning campaign for the Cardinals.

    After posting comparable production the next year, McCaffrey entered the 2017 NFL Draft, where the Carolina Panthers made him the eighth overall pick.

    His subsequent rise to stardom has been chronicled many times over, but the headline is that he’s emerged as one of the best dual-threat running backs the league has ever seen.

    Similarly, Culpo’s success in pageantry opened up more opportunities for her to prove her own dual-threat capabilities. She wound up pursuing modeling work, notably appearing on the cover of the 2020 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

    Culpo also has a few acting credits on her résumé. She made her film debut in 2014 with “The Other Women,” and her most recent acting projects include “Clawfoot” in 2023, “Venus as a Boy” in 2021, and “Paradise City” in 2021. She has appeared on shows such as “Hell’s Kitchen,” “The Culpo Sisters,” and “The Masked Singer” as well.

    She has also become a very successful social media influencer, with more than 5.4 million followers on her Instagram and partnerships with brands like L’Oréal, Uberliss, and Bodyarmor, among others.

    How Did Culpo and McCaffrey Meet?

    McCaffrey and Culpo’s courtship began innocuously enough. The star runner reportedly liked a photo of hers on Instagram, per Sportskeeda. The interest was evidently mutual, and the two were seen jet-setting about in exotic locales soon thereafter.

    It didn’t take long for the two young moguls to become an item. They’d regularly share messages of support for one another on their respective social media platforms. And they were seen attending public events, like the NFL Honors, together.

    The two were engaged to be wed in April of 2023. After they got engaged, Culpo said she’s received an outpouring of support from Niners fans.

    “I never thought that it would be any different,” she told E! News. “I never thought anybody would treat me any differently or anything would be any sort of way. But it is actually kind of funny how everybody there — because they’re just such big fans of the team — everybody wanted to see my ring or say hi and congratulate us. It’s really, really sweet. The 49ers have such a great fanbase.”

    McCaffrey and Culpo Tie the Knot

    On June 29, 2024, the couple took a private plane to Rhode Island with their dog, Oliver Sprinkles, and got married in a private ceremony in front of their closest friends and family.

    Culpo wore a Dolce & Gabbana wedding dress, telling Vogue: “When I think about Christian and what he loves and the moments that he thinks that I’m most beautiful, it’s absolutely in something like this: timeless, covered and elegant.”

    The couple got married at a church in the town of Westerly. Those in attendance included 49ers tight end George Kittle, head coach Kyle Shanahan, fullback Kyle Juszczyk, and comedian Shane Gillis.

    “It’s a covenant. It’s the beginning of the rest of your life—and it’s the union and bond of two people forever,” Culpo told Vogue. “I wanted something that felt as serious as that commitment.”

    It’s possible the soulmates already have their forever home, as they have lived together in a $3.5 million mansion in Los Angeles since 2021.
