Shailene Woodley Confirms Engagement To Aaron Rodgers
The Big Little Lies star revealed that the pair got engaged “a while ago” in a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The Green Bay Packers quarterback mentioned his engagement on February 6 while accepting his third career MVP award but did not name the actress.
“Yes, we are engaged,” Woodley said. “We are engaged. But for us, it’s not new news, you know, so it’s kind of funny. Everybody right now is freaking out over it, and we’re like, ‘Yeah, we’ve been engaged for a while.”
“He’s first off just a wonderful, incredible human being, but I never thought I’d be engaged to somebody who threw balls for a living. 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 just so good at it,” Woodley admitted after saying that she still has not been able to attend one of his games due to pandemic restrictions. She has never even attended a football game before meeting her fiancee.
“I don’t know him as a football guy,” Woodley continued. “I know him as like the nerd who wants to host Jeopardy. That’s the dude I know. He just happens to also be very good at sports.”
Last month, it was announced that Rodgers will be one of Jeopardy‘s celebrity guest hosts after the passing of long-time host Alex Trebek in November. Rodgers’ episodes will begin to air April 5.
Woodley and Rodgers began dating in 2020.
Woodley appeared on the late night talk show to promote her new film, The Mauritanian.
