Harper is best known for winning the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2022 Rookie of the Year after being one of the winners of SI’s annual Swim Search in 2021. But people also likely know her for her reaction to Goff’s first win as a Lion.

SI shared a video of Harper, doing a photo shoot at the time, finding out that Goff had thrown a game-winning touchdown pass to WR Amon-Ra St. Brown for the Lions’ first win in 2021 and broke the team’s 15-game losing streak.

“It’s over? Shut up, shut up,” she says in the video. “You guys, this is their first win, like this is crazy. … Oh my god, this is gonna make me cry.”

Harper grew up in California like Goff did. She’s familiar with sports, as her older brother, Shane, played a handful of games for the NHL’s Florida Panthers after spending most of his career in the AHL and ECHL.

He has since jumped around to other leagues, as well.

Harper launched The Planted App in August with fellow model Elizabeth Turner. The goal is to create a community to support your body and mind with recipes, mental health tips, and more.

She also was part of Women of the League, a podcast hosted by Josie Leinart, the wife of former NFL quarterback Matt Leinart. The six-episode series stars four partners of current NFL players, including Harper and Allison Kuch, the wife of TikTok personality and EDGE Isaac Rochell.

The SI swimsuit model also has quite the social media following, with nearly 500,000 followers on Instagram and almost 150,000 on TikTok. She’s very open about her relationship with Goff and has a few funny posts about the quarterback.

When Goff was initially traded to the Lions, Harper showed a ton of support for the quarterback, even though her career was heavily rooted in Los Angeles.

“We’ve always been in California, so there was an excitement to a fresh start, but at the same time, my whole career has been in L.A., and I did not know what it was going to look like moving away from that,” she told the New York Post.

Despite her initial hesitation, she was glad she took the leap with Goff.

How Did Goff Meet Harper?

Harper unveiled that the soon-to-be weds met on the celebrity dating app Raya back in 2019. She even went as far as to say that she sent the first message.

“We met on a dating app,” Harper said in a 2022 episode of “Women of the League,” a YouTube series that followed the significant others of NFL players.

“I wasn’t really looking for anything at the time and I was just kind of being single and having fun. I met him through the dating app and he was very persistent trying to take me out on a date and he kept trying and trying — and finally it was like a Thursday night and I was like, ‘Ok, I have nothing else to do, I might as well go out on a date.’”

“Literally, he picked me up and I was like ‘Oh shoot, dang it, he got me,’” she said. “From that moment on, we just talked every day since then. Now it’s been almost four years.”

The couple made their first public appearance at the ESPYs in 2019. The two have been dating the whole time. Harper chose to follow Goff to Detriot after he was traded by the Los Angeles Rams in 2021.

A wedding date for Harper and Goff is not yet known, but the two seem to be together through thick and thin.
