Lions quarterback Jared Goff she asked Christen Harper’s longtime love – and she said yes.
The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model took to Instagram on Saturday and shared a candid video confirming their engagement.

“6/16/22 is the best day of my life,” she wrote in a separate Instagram story.
Many of Harper’s friends from SI swimsuits went to the comments section to share their excitement about the future bride.
“Ahhh! I love you guys !!!! Congratulations!” wrote Camille Kostek.
“I can’t be happier because of you, sis!” Ella Halikas announced.
“OMGGGGGG !!!! Congratulations !!!!!” wrote Kamie Crawford.
“SO. HAPPY. FOR. YOU. GUYS !!!!!!!!!!!!” pushed the editor of MJ Day.
“Congratulations!” added Hailey Clauson.
Harper and Goff have been having fun since the beginning of 2019. The couple recently flew to Florida to celebrate Harper’s appearance in this year’s edition.
According to SI Swimsuit, Harper grew up in Southern California and began her modeling career at the age of 20 to help her pay for a trip to college. The issue describes how she often received resistance from agents and clients to lose weight, but Harper decided to continue modeling without shrinking to fit the standard size of the fashion world. She was the winner of Swim Search 2021 and was introduced as a rookie this year.
“Being named a beginner for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit is more than an honor for me,” Harper told the release at the time. “Being in the same conversation with the icons that have graced the pages of SI for decades is truly surreal. I have looked up to SI women all my life, seeing brave, smart, beautiful women with unique stories in my youth is what gave me confidence not only to walk through life but also to pursue a career in modeling. “
“This is really a moment for me – if I had never opened the Sports Illustrated Swim edition 13 years ago, I don’t know if I would have been the same woman I am today,” Harper added.
Harper noted that being part of the magazine has “always been my ultimate dream”.
“Every year I would ask my agents to try to get me a casting with SI and I never made it there, “she said.” I realized that life is too short to wait for opportunities to come to you. I decided to take my dreams into my own hands and go for what I wanted all my life and it was the best decision I ever made! “
Goff is gearing up for his second season at the Lions after the Rams replaced him last January.
