Who are Olivia Culpo’s parents?

According to Page Six, Olivia’s parents are Peter and Susan Culpo. Peter has opened several restaurants in the Boston area, while Susan is an accomplished violinist who has played for the Boston Symphony and the Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra.

Describing their family dynamic to Page Six, Olivia said, “We were all so close in age — there’s five of us within eight years — and our parents worked all the time, and so we had to rely on each other.” She further explained that the older siblings cooked, cleaned and let the younger siblings stay up late because their parents were away so much for work.

In a new clip from The Culpo Sisters, Susan and Peter joked that they weren’t actually certain of their children’s occupations. When a crew member on their show asked, “How would you describe the girls’ careers now? What do they do?” the Culpo patriarchs responded with confusion.

“Please tell us, we don’t know,” Susan admitted. “I know that Olivia sends me often very many photographs of herself and says ‘Pick your fave.’

Peter added that due to the girls’ influencer lifestyles, they frequently received mail at all hours of the day. “They get like 10 or 20 packages a day. They act like it’s a job — they have to open them up and pull out this cool stuff.”

“So what the hell do they do, okay? ‘Cause I don’t know!” Susan added.

Despite Olivia’s parents not exactly understanding what she and her sisters do for a living, they have remained supportive of her career since she was crowned Miss Universe in 2012. In an interview with the Boston Globe, Peter Culpo said, “Olivia loves Boston, but in all likelihood, she’ll end up in New York or Los Angeles. We’ll support her whatever she wants to do.”
