Former Miss Universe, Olivia Culpo, and San Francisco 49ers running back, Christian McCaffrey, have opened up about the role faith plays in their relationship. Both Culpo and McCaffrey are devout Christians, with the football player having spent time on international missions and the model being a graduate of an all-girls Catholic school.
In an interview with Fox News Digital, Culpo revealed that the foundation of her relationship with McCaffrey is rooted in God. She said, “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. 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.”
McCaffrey, for his part, has also spoken about the role of faith in his life and career. In an article for The Player’s Tribune, he wrote, “When you see me take the field, know that I’m playing for more than just football. I have a strong faith in God. I don’t think He’s looking down on me and hoping that I score touchdowns. Nah, He just wants to see that I did my absolute best on that particular day.”
Culpo and McCaffrey have also revealed that they are on the same page when it comes to having children. The 2012 Miss Universe recently spoke about her fertility journey on an episode of The Culpo Sisters, revealing that she has endometriosis, a condition that can affect fertility. She also revealed that she froze her eggs in the hope that she will become a mother in the future.
Despite both wanting to start a family, Culpo and McCaffrey have agreed that now is not the best time for them to do so, with the football player being “completely and totally focused on football”.
In conclusion, the couple’s faith plays a significant role in their relationship and serves as a foundation for them to rely on during difficult times. Despite facing challenges in their fertility journey, the couple is determined to start a family in the future, but for now, they are focused on supporting each other in their respective career pursuits.
