Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff and his fiancee, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Christen Harper, are enjoying a luxurious vacation in the picturesque country of Italy.

The couple, who recently got engaged, has been treating themselves to a well-deserved break before Goff’s upcoming training camp next month.

Their extravagant getaway was shared with fans through a series of captivating photos on Harper’s Instagram account. The couple has been exploring various locations in Italy, including Capri, Amalfi, Nerano, and the Amalfi Coast.

In one of the photos, Harper confidently flaunted her natural beauty with a makeup-free face adorned with freckles.

Another picture showcased Goff basking in the warm Italian sun, creating envy among their followers who are yearning for their own slice of paradise.

Their journey as a couple began after they met on Raya, an exclusive and invitation-only dating app favored by many celebrities.

Harper revealed in an interview that they connected in 2019 but initially, she wasn’t actively seeking a partner as she had recently ended a long-term relationship and wanted to remain single for a while. However, fate had other plans for them.

Reflecting on their meeting, Harper said, “It’s so funny thinking that we met on a dating app, but I feel like these days it’s so common. And it’s really like how you meet people. Who knows if I would’ve ever met him? So I’m so happy that I went on that dating app five years ago… It’s so fun to see how we’ve grown. It’s been such a fun ride – and it all started online.”

Although Harper initially believed Goff messaged her first, they discovered that she was the one who sent the first message. She encouraged other women to take the initiative and make the first move, saying, “You gotta shoot your shot. You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.”

The couple made their first red-carpet appearance together at the ESPYs in July 2019, publicly confirming their relationship.

In 2022, during a vacation in Mexico, Jared Goff proposed to Christen Harper, marking a significant milestone in their journey as a couple. Meanwhile, Harper achieved a milestone of her own when she was named the SI Swimsuit rookie of the year in the same year.

Harper admitted that she didn’t possess extensive knowledge about football initially, despite being in a relationship with an NFL player. However, in order to be more supportive, she made an effort to learn about the intricacies of the sport.

Jared Goff has had a successful football career thus far. He began his professional journey with the Los Angeles Rams, who selected him as the first overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Goff played for the Rams from 2016 to 2021 and Goff played a crucial role in guiding the Rams to the Super Bowl in the 2018 season.

In 2021, Goff was traded to the Detroit Lions, where he continued to showcase his skills. He helped the Lions break a 15-game losing streak in the same year and later contributed to bringing them a winning record in the 2022 season.

Off the field, Goff shares his life with Christen Harper, a rising star in the modeling and acting world. Their relationship has blossomed over the years, and they continue to support and celebrate each other’s achievements.
