Shailene Woodley confirms Aaron Rodgers engagement – Page Six

It’s official!

Shailene Woodley confirmed on Monday that she’s engaged to Aaron Rodgers.

“For us it’s not new news, so it’s kind of funny everybody right now is freaking out over it,” the actress said during an appearance on “The Tonight Show.” “We’re like, ‘Yeah we’ve been engaged for a while.’”

The “Big Little Lies” star, 29, gushed over her 37-year-old fiancé, describing him as a “wonderful, incredible human being” and poked fun at his career as a quarterback for the Green Bay Packers.

“I never thought I’d be engaged to someone who threw balls for a living,” she joked. “I never thought as a little girl, ‘Yeah when I grow up I’m going to marry someone who throws balls, yeah!’

“But he’s really just so go good at it,” she added. “I’m very impressed.”

Woodley added that she and Rodgers met during the pandemic and admitted she has never been to — nor watched — a football game.

“I don’t know him as the football guy,” she said. “I know him as like the nerd who wants to host ‘Jeopardy!’ That’s the dude I know.”

Rumors of a romance between the “Divergent” star and NFL player didn’t start swirling until early February. Days later, Rodgers revealed he was engaged but never named his fiancée.

Rodgers last dated Danica Patrick, while Woodley was previously linked to rugby player Ben Volavola.
