We officially have a new celebrity couple … uh, Shaaron Woodgers? Aarlene Rodgley?
The nickname may be fleshed out later, but the important thing to know is that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Emmy-nominated actress Shailene Woodley are engaged. Woodley confirmed recent rumors during an appearance on Monday night’s edition of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”.
“Yeah, we’re engaged,” Woodley told Fallon. “We’re engaged. But to us that’s not news, you know, so it’s kinda funny. Everyone’s freaking out about it and we’re like, ‘Yeah, we’ve been engaged for a long time. moment.’ We got engaged some time ago. “
Woodley ended his relationship with rugby player Ben Volavola in April 2020, and Rodgers and NASCAR driver Danica Patrick went their separate ways months later. Rodgers, 37, and Woodley, 29, were then able to hook up last year, putting them on the road to marriage – though that wasn’t exactly the storytelling romance Woodley always had in mind.

“He’s, first of all, just a wonderful, amazing human being. But I never thought I would be engaged to someone who threw balls for a living,” said Woodley. “Like, I never thought as a little girl, I was like, ‘Yeah, when I grow up I’m going to marry someone who throws balls! Yeah!’ But he’s really so good at it. “
The “Big Little Lies” star was unable to attend any of Rodgers’ games in 2020 due to NFL rules amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and she admitted she was “constantly learning” football . Still, it’s clear she’s got a very good grasp of the basics of the quarterback position.
“He can throw fast balls, he can throw slow balls, high balls, low balls,” Woodley said. “When I first met him, I think my dog, my dog pulled me aside and said, ‘If you don’t date this guy, I will deny you as a mother because that the three feet that I run with you when throwing a ball is nothing compared to the marathon that I am able to run with it. ‘”
