The model and running back for the Carolina Panthers have hit the six-month dating mark and they're still going strong.
“We have so much in common,” Culpo told PEOPLE ahead of the 2019 Miss Universe competition, where she — a former Miss Universe herself — joined Vanessa Lachey as backstage correspondents along with host Steve Harvey.
“It’s really easy for us, so I’m grateful,” Culpo added, of her bond with McCaffrey.
The two were first linked in early 2019, according to reports: Sports writer Dov Kleiman said they followed each other on Instagram in April and the two were soon liking one another’s photos, according to Page Six.
