'I'm so proud of you': Olivia Culpo congratulates BF Christian McCaffrey on being traded to SF 49ers
SANS FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA: Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo shared a heartfelt message to all the Carolina fans and her boyfriend of three years Christian McCaffrey ahead of his first match with the Sans Francisco 49ers scheduled to be held on Sunday, October 30. The former Carolina Panthers running-back was recently exchanged to the 49ers after the latter team traded four players with McCaffrey in return.
The deal was sealed off as it gives SF 49ers the required offensive power to compete for the Super Bowl title. Following this feat, McCaffrey's long-term girlfriend Olivia Culpo dedicated a farewell video filled with memories of her time spent with the player in Carolina on Saturday, October 22. "This city stole my heart and I’ll never forget the memories and people who made the last 3+ years so special," said the American model in the social media post.
In the post, Culpo congratulated her boyfriend who will be making his debut in the Sans Francisco 49ers against Kansas City Chiefs this weekend. "I’ll miss you all so much and you’ll always hold a special place in my heart I’m so proud of you Christian! Seeing your light shine is one of my favorite things in life and I’m beyond excited and grateful for this next chapter in Cali, the place I’ve called home for the last 8 years Niners Nation, let’s go!" she wrote in the caption.
The 30-year-old fashion influencer continued her emotional message by sliding a joke about the constant flight travel she endured in order to lessen the distance with her man. "Ps- to all of my LAX to CLT flight attendants on American Airlines. Love you guys and thank you for the heavy pours. I won’t be seeing you as often but we had a good run," her post read.
Christian McCaffrey, 26, was among the first to comment on the touching words by his girlfriend. He wrote, "The best partner in crime. Love you." The shared post is soundtracked by James Taylor's classic hit song ‘Carolina On My Mind’, and featured several clips of the couple enjoying their time in North Carolina including footage from some of his best games and moments spent during boat rides.
The American footballer also paid a tribute to his former team, Carolina Panthers. He captioned the post with, "I’m forever grateful for all of the people who have helped make these past 5 1/2 years so special for me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Carolina, I will always love you."
