McCaffrey’s fellow NFL players, like Trey Lance and Fred Warner, were also quick to congratulate the couple, who even received a comment from the 49ers’ official Instagram account.

In a touching anniversary post from last year, Culpo revealed that the couple began dating in 2019 after they were set up by her best friends. Having had negative experiences with dating athletes in the past, Culpo claimed to have been hesitant at first but that she was glad to have given athletes a second chance.

“Three years ago I was not looking for a relationship. When my best friends Kristen & Tyler called me and asked if I would be open to meeting their friend Christian I was apprehensive. I was worried it would be the same old story all over again and that all guys were the same. While my expectations were low, I knew I couldn’t close myself off and make decisions based on fear,” Culpo wrote in the June 2022 anniversary post. “I love this photo (the 2nd pic) that Kristen snapped when he wasn’t looking, waiting to meet me for the first time, so sweet, vulnerable and humble (and with the flowers, I can’t 🥹) I’m so grateful for the voice inside me that told me to give love another chance. The yin to my yang, you are the epitome of strength through humility. Thank you for being my rock and restoring my faith in love. You are everything I ever dreamed of and more ❤️ ❤️”
