Olivia Munn Shuts Down Aaron Rodgers Engagement Rumors
Olivia Munn has shut down reports that she and NFL star Aaron Rodgers are engaged to be married.
Olivia Munn, Aaron Rodgers Not Engaged
On Tuesday, rumors started to swirl that Munn, 35, had gotten engaged to Green Bay Packers quarterback Rodgers, 32. It was reported that Rodgers had surprised the former Newsroom actress with a ring. “Olivia wasn’t expecting it, but they’re so in love he couldn’t wait,” a source told OK! Magazine.
Munn, who is currently promoting Ride Along 2, decided to take to Instagram to immediately shut down the speculation before it took over her press appearances for the movie.
“Answering yes or no to personal questions can be tricky because if you say ‘No’ it means whenever you say “No comment” that kind of becomes your default ‘Yes,'” Munn explained on Instagram. “But since I’m doing press for the next few days, I didn’t want to have to answer the same question over and over. So instead, I’m going to let my text conversation with my Asian mom help me out.”
Munn’s mom – like most people – had heard about the Munn-Rodgers engagement online and asked her daughter about it. In response, Munn wrote, “Oh my gosh Mom no. You now [sic] you shouldn’t believe gossip on the internet,” before joking about how far down the list she’d be of people that would be informed about the engagement.
Though the two aren’t engaged yet, those close to Munn and Rodgers wouldn’t be surprised if a proposal were around the corner.
“Olivia and Aaron have discussed they want to get married eventually and their future together. All of his friends know she is a great fit for him,” a source told E! News. “They are very much in love but they want to make sure it all happens naturally, they always said.”
“She is a big sports fan and a guys-kind-of-girl, so whenever she is out with Aaron it seems very seamless between them,” the insider added. “Aaron supports Olivia with her acting and is a very proud boyfriend. There is always non-stop laughter and humor between them when they are out.”
Munn and Rodgers have been dating since May 2014.
