Kelly Stafford is looking forward to raising her family on the west coast!

On Saturday, news broke that the Detroit Lions traded her husband, quarterback Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams for two future first-round draft picks, a third-round draft pick, and quarterback Jared Goff.

Kelly, 30, celebrated the news on Instagram Sunday, sharing a sweet video of her husband with one of their daughters, captioned: "Pretty excited about all the Cali sunsets in our future."

The mom of four also shared some fan art of Matthew, 32, in a Rams uniform, which she captioned, "Lets go, Rams," on her Instagram Story.

The couple has lived in Michigan since Matthew was drafted by the Lions in 2009. Last week, Kelly shared a touching tribute to Detroit after it was first announced that her husband and the Lions were parting ways.

"Thank you. This place, our home, the people... it's hard to find the words to explain what this place means to me," she wrote alongside a photo of her and Matthew outside of Ford Field.

"Random tears come very often when I think about not being here. This place supported me during the toughest time of my life and during the happiest times and I want to thank y'all in the right way," she continued. "Whenever I figure out what the future holds, you'll be hearing from me again with a thank you that hopefully shows how much gratitude and love I have for this place.. but until then we are going to enjoy our time left in Michigan to the fullest because there really is no other place like it. #detroitvseverybody #staffordstrong."

Kelly and Matthew married in 2015 and have since welcomed four daughters together: 3-year-old twins Sawyer and Chandler, 2-year-old Hunter and baby Tyler.

"Friday, June 26, 2020, Our family became complete ❤️," Kelly shared on Instagram at the time of the birth of their fourth child, posting a photo of her and Matthew in the delivery room.

The birth came after Kelly underwent a 12-hour brain operation in April 2019 when doctors found a benign tumor resting on her cranial nerves.
