Olivia Culpo says her ‘feelings were hurt’ when she tried to tip off an NFL star before an engagement


San Francisco 49ers stars Christian McCaffrey and Olivia Culpo got engaged to wed last month after more than three years of dating.

Culpo, a former Miss Universe, revealed in a TikTok video with Amazon Live that she was trying to drop a hint that she was looking for the ring. But it didn’t work.

“I tried to hint at what (ring) I wanted and he was very uninterested,” he said. “He did it on purpose. I was so upset. To be honest, my feelings were hurt, but he just wanted it to be a surprise so it was really great.”

Culpo shows off the rock for the video.

McCaffrey, 26, and Culpo, 31, were introduced to each other in June 2019. The reality star previously dated Nick Jonas for several years.

The Running back just completed a landmark sixth NFL season. He was traded mid-season from the Carolina Panthers to the 49ers, who achieved an NFC championship. The Niners lost to the Philadelphia Eagles, who then fell to the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl.

After playing in just 10 total games the previous two seasons, McCaffrey matched all 17 this season, making him second place in the Comeback Player of the Year voting.

He made his second Pro Bowl last season after rushing for 1,139 yards and scoring a total of 13 touchdowns.

McCaffrey will return with the 49ers for 2023 with uncertainty at quarterback. While Brock Purdy is slated for rehab, San Francisco will likely have to choose between Trey Lance and Sam Darnold for Week 1.
