We all love posting photos of ourselves on social media. It’s what we do. Olivia Culpo, Christian McCaffrey’s girlfriend, blows the rest of us out of the water.
Earlier this week, Culpo posted an exotic photo of herself. She was on a secluded beach on Kangaroo Island in South Australia. She was wearing only a bikini bottom with only a snake covering her upper body.
Culpo also is a former Miss Universe and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. So it’s likely in her job description to post exotic swimsuit photos. She was on assignment in South Australia when a photographer snapped the shot.
She captioned it: “feeling nostalgic because these are memories I’ll cherish forever and I miss my (Sports Illustrated) family this year.”
Take a look.
Who Is Olivia Culpo?
Culpo is considered one of the most beautiful women on earth. She started as Miss Rhode Island in 2012. She was named Miss USA, then Miss Universe. Culpo was the eighth American to earn the Miss Universe crown. But she was the first since 1997.
Culpo is smart and talented, too. She plays the cello. And she attended Boston University, although she didn’t complete her degree.
The beauty pageants gave her a higher profile on social media, so she’s now listed as an influencer on fashion trends and other pop culture topics.
Earlier this year, pre-Covid 19 pandemic, she appeared on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. Models Jasmine Sanders and Kate Bock joined Culpo on the cover. That’s a huge get for a model. The SI Swimsuit edition has been a mainstay since 1964. There are some who suggest that SI made the bikini into a popular swimsuit choice.
Culpo also had some high-profile relationships.
She dated former New England Patriot receiver Danny Amendola for three years. The two had a nasty breakup. She also dated pop star Nick Jonas. The singer conceded that Culpo inspired his song “Jealous.”
Miss Universe and Christian McCaffrey Started Dating in 2019
McCaffrey and Culpo started dating in 2019. They’ve been very public on social media, with each celebrating the success of the other.
However, McCaffrey, the Carolina Panthers star, has had a tough season with the Panthers. He missed six games with a high ankle sprain. He returned to action last month and sprained his shoulder. Carolina misses him in the offense. McCaffrey is one of the top running backs in the league. And he’s also terrific as a receiver.
A year ago, McCaffrey became only the third player in NFL history to rush for at least 1,000 yards and catch 1,000 plus in receptions.
