The tickets were a birthday gift to Lisa McCaffrey, who said that the family — including "moneybags Olivia" — couldn't pay for an "outrageously expensive" suite
After Lisa McCaffrey, Christian’s mom, revealed that she could not "afford" to secure a suite to watch the star San Francisco 49ers running back in the NFL championship on Feb. 11, Culpo stepped up.
On Friday, SportsCenter shared a post about Lisa’s suite-less situation, and hours later, Matt Ampolsky — the CEO of Confirmed360, a company that supplies access to “coveted events” — shared the post on his Instagram Story, asking Culpo, 31, to “please correct them.”
Shortly after, the model and actress did just that, sharing the post on her Instagram Story and jokingly dubbing it “fake news!” as she added, “Happy birthday Lisa I bought you a suite,” and tagged Confirmed360 in the post.
Lisa then shared her reaction to the special birthday gift, reposting Culpo’s exciting news on her own Instagram Story, adding a prayer hands emoji and confetti.
The mom of the 27-year-old NFL star first shared that she was not able to pay for a suite on her podcast, Your Mom, on Friday, citing the extravagant prices.
“We looked into a suite and none of us can afford it, not even Christian — moneybags over there — nor moneybags Olivia,” she said on the podcast. “So we are not in a suite, I’ll tell you that right now.”
She went on to share that they did “negotiate like an area” to watch the 49ers take on the Kansas City Chiefs next weekend, but she does not “understand exactly what it is.”
“Part of the problem is I wanted eight tickets together,” Lisa continued. “I felt strongly about everyone being together."
"So anyway, long story short, they’re outrageously expensive, they’re stupid expensive, I don’t know if it’s the Taylor Swift factor, if it’s the first time in Vegas factor, there’s so much going on,” she added.

Suite or no suite, Culpo — who got engaged to the star running back last April — is beyond excited to cheer her man on.
Last week, she shared a sweet tribute to her fiancé after he and his team secured their Super Bowl spot.
Alongside a sweet video of she and Christian hugging and chest bumping, the model wrote, “Watching the love of your life live out his dream is the best feeling in the world.”
In the caption, she added, “You deserve it all Christian ❤️ I love you so so much.”
