Who Is Christen Harper? New Details On Model Dating LA Rams' Quarterback Jared Goff

Rams quarterback Jared Goff is winning games and keeping his eye on another Super Bowl appearance after losing to the Patriots in 2019. But he also has his eye on his girlfriend Christen Harper. The pair have been dating since earlier this year and they've been stepping out together in LA. Who is Jared Goff's girlfriend?

Harper is a model and actress and she occasionally mentions Goff in her social media feed. They went Instagram official over the summer after their appearance together at the ESPY awards. That's the only photo Goff has posted of anything having to do with his personal life. The rest is all football so it's safe to say that Christen is a big deal in his life. 

Who is Christen Harper? Read on to learn all about her.

1. Actress and model

Haper is a California girl and she has a bachelor’s degree from California State University, Northridge. She's been modeling since she was young and she's repped by Wilhemina, one of the top modeling agencies. She's done some acting as well. In 2004, Harper appeared in the short film Seven’s Eleven. She made a cameo in an episode of HBO’s Entourage a couple of years later and in 2019, she had roles in the movies Auggie and The Obituary of Tunde Johnson.

2. It's about winning games

Goff, who was a number one overall draft pick, wasn't always focused on his personal life. He was single when he started in the NFL and didn't feel any pressure to find a partner in the beginning. All the pressure he felt was to win games, figuring his love life would follow his professional success. "Do you think Tom Brady is with Gisele [Bundchen] if he doesn't win a Super Bowl? No. There's nothing that matters if you don't win games," he said to Bleacher Report in 2017.  "It's just like if you're an actor or actress or a rapper or anything. If you don't produce, people won't care."

3. "I need a girlfriend first"

By 2018, Goff was more open to the idea of dating and when ESPN's Sam Alipour asked him about starting a family one day, he said "I need a girlfriend first," before saying it's not hard to meet girls in LA but 
"It's tough to keep them."

4. Quiet start to the relationship

By March 2019, Goff and Harper had been spotted together more than once. The Sports Gossip had posted photos of Harper at a Rams game in January and they were spotted shopping together in March but the couple didn't confirm or deny anything for months. She was at his Super Bowl, totally decked out in Rams gear as well.

5. Instagram official

The pair was definitely a couple when they were photographed together at the ESPY awards over the summer. Though Goff's caption simply said "Fun night at the ESPYs. Was great to get a chance to honor all the fire fighters and first responders that were involved in the efforts with the fires last fall. Thank you all!" there was no denying that body language between them in the photo. The two were close together with his arm around her waist as they both posed in their formalwear on the red carpet. Harper posted the same pic with the caption "Last night with this handsome guy @jaredgoff."

6. Major contract extension

Even though Goff didn't bring home the championship in the Super Bowl, he did get a vote of confidence from the Rams. The team extended his contract for three years for about $134 million. After that announcement broke, Harper took to her Instagram stories to share her congratulations with her man, saying: "Congrats to the hardest worker I know" along with heart emojis. 

7. Sister to an NHL player

The sports life isn't new to Harper. The Cheat Sheet reports that her older brother Shane played in the NHL. Shane did a stint with the Florida Panthers in the 2016-17 season before signing a two-year contract with Swedish club Örebro HK of the SHL in 2018. She also reportedly dated a baseball player before she met Goff. She was supposedly involved with former Colorado Rockies minor league prospect Andrew Rohrbach.

Haper and Goff look like they're set to have a happy future as one of the hottest couples in LA. And who knows? Maybe if Goff brings home a Super Bowl ring, he'll get some bling for Harper and start planning a wedding.
