Dec. 24, 1991
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Pop crooner Harry Connick Jr. has popped the question to steady girlfriend, lingerie model-video director Jill Goodacre, but the two have not set a date.
Connick, 24, interrupted a weekend performance at the Wheeler Opera House in Aspen, Colo., to tell the audience the news. Ms. Goodacre, who is in her late 20s, is a model frequently seen in Victoria's Secret catalogs.
The couple appeared Monday on ''Entertainment Tonight,'' with Ms. Goodacre showing off her emerald-cut diamond engagement ring.
Most recently Ms. Goodacre has directed Connick's music videos.
''We get along great,'' Connick said on the syndicated program. ''I've never had a director that I'm this much in love with.''
Replied Ms. Goodacre, ''He's the most romantic man in the world.''
Connick said the wedding will be ''in about a year or so.''
