Jared Goff, one of Los Angeles’ most eligible bachelors, appears to be off the market as the Rams quarterback has been linked to a new girlfriend, Christen Harper. If Goff is dating Harper, the couple is keeping their relationship under wraps as neither has made it Instagram official.
In interviews conducted several months ago, Goff lamented his single status, so the relationship looks to be relatively new. Harper is a model and actress with 192,000 followers. Goff is reportedly keeping the relationship a secret to keep it from being a distraction from the Rams attempt to win a Super Bowl.
Goff has not been the typical L.A. pro athlete, and his mother, Nancy Goff, noted that fans should expect her son to handle stardom a little differently than most people.
“You don’t have to be the King of L.A.,” Nancy explained to Bleacher Report. “In the way one person thinks you’re the King of L.A. He’ll do it his way.”
