Another shot at a Superbowl championship and dating Olivia Culpo? Danny Amendola is living his best life. The Patriots wide receiver opened up about his relationship with his model/actress girlfriend at the Super Bowl Opening Night at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn. on Monday.


Culpo is "a great girl and she's loving," Amendola told E! News. "I'm lucky to have her."

Culpo, who was crowned Miss Universe in 2012, started dating the NFL star in 2016. When asked if there was any competition between the couple and Tom Brady and his model wife Gisele Bndchen for being the Patriots' "It" couple, Amendola responded, "It's never been about a competition or anything."


Culpo was on hand to watch the Patriots win the AFC Championship on Jan. 21, sending them to the 2018 Super Bowl this weekend and took to Instagram to share her excitement and a sweet pic of her and the wide receiver. 


"BABY GOING TO THE #SUPERBOWL #MVP," she captioned a sweet post of the duo kissing after the big win.
