"I love you more than I have words to express. Josh, you’re my best friend and my soulmate. I can’t wait for forever together. Yes a million times over," Kloss posted on Twitter along with a ring emoji.
Speaking of millions, Kloss has made a fortune through her work as a model (albeit one that's amounted to less than her venture-capital investor fiancé's).
The 25-year-old was discovered at a charity fashion show in her hometown of St. Louis at age 13. Husband-and-wife team Mary and Jeff Clarke of Mother Management, who also launched Ashton Kutcher's career, signed Kloss, and by age 18 she was reportedly earning more than $1 million a year.
In 2016, Forbes ranked Kloss the third-highest-paid model in the world; her $10-million earnings that year tied with Kendall Jenner's, and she had more campaigns than any other model in the ranking. She has booked campaigns for brands including L’Oréal, Swarovski, and Carolina Herrera. After a two-year hiatus from the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, she walked in this year's show in Shanghai.
