SI Swimsuit model Christen Harper has once again reminded us why she and her partner, Jared Goff, are total relationship goals. The reigning co-Rookie of the Year shared the sweetest Instagram reel in honor of her fiancé’s 29th birthday on Oct. 14.

Harper, 30, posted an adorable clip of the two slow dancing and singing along to “Beyond” by Leon Bridges. “Happy Birthday to my best friend 🤍I love you @jaredgoff,” she further gushed in her caption of the Detroit Lions quarterback.

Tons of Harper’s 502,000 followers, including friends and football fans alike, chimed in to the comments section to also share well wishes with Goff.

“the cutest vid ever🥹,” 2021 Swim Search finalist Gabriella Halikas wrote. “happy birthday !!! @jaredgoff 💙 love you guys!!!”

“😍😍😍😍,” SI Swimsuit cover girl Brooks Nader noted with emojis.

“Thanks for the amazing season Jared! Happy birthday 🎉,” someone else noted.

“That’s my quarterback!” another Lions fan cheered. “Happy Birthday, JG! 🍻 🦁.”

“Happy birthday Jar!!!!” Harper’s friend and business partner Elizabeth Turner added.

Harper and Goff initially met on the dating app Raya in 2019 and have been inseparable ever since. They got engaged in Los Cabos, Mexico last June.

“I was truly not looking for anything at the time,” Harper told SI Swimsuit last summer of her relationship. “I had just gotten out of a long relationship and I was trying to stay single for a year. Then I met him and the rest is history, baby.”
