Danny Amendola and Olivia Culpo were one of the NFL's most-adorable couples. They are no more, though.

The wide receiver and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model broke up. The news of the breakup was first reported last week and it's since been confirmed.

From US Weekly:

Olivia Culpo and NFL star Danny Amendola have called it quits after dating for two years, Us Weekly can confirm.

The 2012 Miss Universe pageant winner, 25, and the former New England Patriots wide receiver, who signed to the Miami Dolphins earlier this month, “definitely broke up,” a source tells Us exclusively. “It had to do with the distance and them barely seeing each other.

The source adds that Amendola also wasn’t happy with Culpo’s nude photos in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue and his relocation didn’t help things. “He got signed to the Miami Dolphins and Olivia wasn’t going to move there,” the source added.

Culpo posed in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue this year. She posed nude for the "In Her Own Words" campaign.

Here are those photos:

Culpo and Amendola had been together for a while.
