Olivia Culpo Says Fiancé Christian McCaffrey "Deserves an Oscar" For His Marriage Proposal

Olivia Culpo is going to be a bride! The influencer and reality TV star revealed the exciting news of her engagement to her longtime love, NFL player Christian McCaffrey, on Instagram on April 7.

In the photos, Culpo is wearing an oversize blazer, a dress, and knee-high boots as McCaffrey gets down on one knee in a desert setting. The sandy location was decorated with beautiful flower arrangements, and the couple were beaming in the black-and-white images. Culpo, 30, captioned the post simply: "♾️4.2.23♾️."

Culpo also showed off her new jewelry in the Instagram carousel. Her engagement ring was designed by Ring Concierge and is a three-stone oval with epaulette side stones on a yellow gold/platinum band.

In an interview on Amazon Live, released on April 18, Culpo shared a few more details about her engagement and impending nuptials. "I had no idea it was going to happen," she said of the proposal. "Christian deserves an Oscar for his performance. He was leading me astray the entire time. I kept asking him if he was ready to get engaged or if he had any timeline in mind because I was starting to get kind of annoyed . . . he never let out a peep."

Culpo also shared that she's already begun planning her wedding, which she notes is "so much work." She also added that she's still working on picking a location. "My parents want us to get married in Newport, I don't know about that," she shared. "I do like the idea of mountains so we will see." According to Culpo, she and McCaffrey are in the process of picking out a house, and she revealed that she wants her wedding to happen in the near future. "I hope really soon," she added, "because I want to have little babies, so that would be amazing."

Leading up to the engagement news, Culpo had been sharing videos from the couple's road trip, which included stops at Joshua Tree, California; Flagstaff, Arizona; and Kenyon Point, Utah. "Christian and I packed our bags . . . and we left for the open road," she explained in an April 4 video on Instagram, showing off the RV they were traveling in. She later posted images that appeared to be taken at celebrity hot spot Amangiri, a luxury resort in Canyon Point, UT.

McCaffrey, a 26-year-old running back for the San Francisco 49ers, and Culpo have been dating since 2019. Since going public with their relationship, the couple have made several red carpet appearances together and become dog parents.
