Christen Harper shares new photos of her engagement celebration after Lions QB Jared Goff proposed

Model Christen Harper is happily reliving the ‘best weekend of her life’ after getting engaged to Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff in Mexico. 

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit rookie, 29, took to Instagram on Tuesday — nearly a week after the NFL star, 27, popped the question — to share photos from their engagement celebration at El Dorado Golf and Beach Club in Los Cabos. 

‘Still on cloud 9 from the best weekend of my life,’ she captioned the carousel of images, which included a snapshot of her flashing her diamond engagement ring while cuddled up on her shirtless fiancé’s lap.

Harper was wearing a pink and orange string bikini and a straw cowboy hat while Goff gave her a sweet kiss on the cheek.  

She had a margarita in her left, and on her ring finger was a large oval diamond on a thin gold band.

Other photos showed her with her best friends, including fellow models Katie Austin and Elizbeth Turner. 

The couple’s closest pals had chartered a private jet to Mexico to throw them a surprise party after Goff got down on one knee.

In many of the pictures from the weekend, Harper was palling around in the resort’s pool with her bikini-clad friends.  

Harper also posted images from Goff’s proposal on Instagram Stories, starting with a shot of them sharing a passionate kiss on the beach while surrounded by red roses sticking out of the sand. 

‘Literally the most beautiful night ever. Love you forever @jaredgoff,’ she wrote.

‘And then had this beautiful dinner on the beach set up and we watched the sunset and celebrated,’ she added, sharing behind-the-scenes footage of the wooden teepee that was set up on the sand. 

‘It was the perfect night just us two.’

The next morning, Goff had their closest friends fly to Los Cabos to surprise her. They decorated their villa with silver balloons that spelled out ‘Congrats.’

When Harper walked down the stairs, they all yelled, ‘Surprise!’ She threw her hands over her face in shock, and they all cheered before they exchanged hugs.
