Olivia Culpo and Christian McCaffrey are finally engaged! We couldn’t be happier for the three time SI Swimsuit model and NFL star. They shared the exciting news in a beautiful black-and-white Instagram post on Friday, April 7.

“♾️4.2.23♾️,” the duo captioned the series of photos, noting the date of the private proposal in between two infinity emojis.

Culpo wore an oversized blazer dress and ruched knee-high boots. Her hair was perfectly slicked back into a high bun and she accessorized with small thick hoops and, of course, a brand new massive diamond ring on that finger.

The most special moment was captured in the cover photo of the carousel. The San Francisco 49ers running back was down on one knee and Culpo covered her mouth in surprise. Culpo, 30, and McCaffrey, 26,  shared a intimate hug in the third snap and they cozied up with her hand on his chest in the final shot. They were surrounded by flowers and a rocky desert backdrop.

Tons of celebrity friends and fans ran to the comments to appreciate the sweet couple and the gorgeous proposal. The post received more than 250,000 likes in less than an hour.

“FOREVER TING,” Brooks Nader wrote. “CRYING MY EYES OUT.”

“Omg I knew this would happen from the beginning ❤️,” Najwa Zebian added. “I’m so so so happy for you two 🥹.”

“SO HAPPY FOR YOU GUYS I LOVE YOU BOTH SO MUCH 😭😭❤️❤️,” gushed Kristen Louelle. “Never ever have I been happier!!!! News is out baby!!!! Next up the most amazing wedding followed by lots of babies with impeccable jaw lines 😍😍😍😍😍.”

The two began dating in 2019 and have shared every New Year’s kiss since, traveled together and attended plenty of awards ceremonies and red carpets. McCaffrey always supports Culpo and her modeling ventures through his Instagram story and she rarely misses a football game—whether he’s miles away from her Los Angeles home playing in North Carolina, or just up the coast in the Bay Area (McCaffrey was traded from the Carolina Panthers to San Francisco this season).

The two also share an adorable miniature golden doodle named Oliver Sprinkles, who, according to the former Miss Universe’s Instagram story, is their “little ring bearer.”
