Olivia Culpo kisses Danny Amendola in Valentine’s Day Instagram

The duo were at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue launch party.

Just when you thought we were done with Patriots Valentine’s Day social media posts, Olivia Culpo and Danny Amendola snuck one in early Thursday morning.

Culpo posted a photo on Instagram in which she’s locking lips with the Patriots wide receiver.


The Rhode Island native and former Miss Universe kept the caption for her Instagram short and sweet: “Tonight. My valentine ❤️”

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady also made an appearance on the social media platform, leaving an exclamation point-laden comment on the photo.

Earlier in the evening, Culpo posted a Boomerang of herself at the launch party for the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. Culpo appears in the publication along with Needham native Aly Raisman.


In an Instagram post on Wednesday morning, Culpo explained what it means to her to participate in SI Swimsuit‘s inaugural “In Her Own Words” project, conceived “to deliver a message of empowerment, beauty, confidence and self-acceptance,” according to a press release from the magazine.

“What an incredible experience to be a part of the ‘In her own words’ campaign,” Culpo wrote. “It is an honor to be able to continue the conversation around women, our bodies, and our strengths. When I first heard about the shoot, I was not only nervous about being physically exposed but also being so emotionally exposed. All of the words and phrases I chose for my body are a reflection of my fears, insecurities, and struggles. It took intense self-reflection which can be challenging but I knew if I could be completely candid then more women might realize we are much more alike than we think. We struggle in so many of the same ways. We are all so beautiful when we have the courage to make ourselves vulnerable and real- – And we should never be ashamed!”
