Shailene Woodley confirms Aaron Rodgers’ engagement


Shailene Woodley has confirmed that she and Aaron Rodgers are in fact engaged.

Rumors of an affair between the two began circulating earlier this month before the soccer pro revealed just days later that he is engaged to be married, though he did not say to whom.

Now 29-year-old Woodley has announced her engagement in an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

They began their discussion with Fallon by asking bluntly if the engagement rumors are true.

“Yes, we are committed, we are committed,” he said. “But for us, it’s not new news, you know, so it’s kind of funny, everyone right now is going crazy and we say, ‘Yeah, we’ve been engaged for a while.’

The “Divergent” star was showered on her boyfriend, calling him “a wonderful and amazing human being.”

“I never thought I would be engaged to someone who made a living throwing balls,” joked the actress. “I never thought when I was little, ‘When I grow up, I’ll marry someone who throws balls, yeah!'”

However, like his many fans, Woodley realized that the 37-year-old Rodgers is “very good” at what he does.

She then recalled her past, shortly after meeting, joking that her dog desperately wanted her to date Rodgers because he can throw a ball much farther than “three feet.”

However, the star revealed that despite preparing to walk down the aisle with the athlete, she “has never been to a soccer game.”

She and Rodgers “met during this crazy, crazy time,” she said. Professional sports games have had extremely limited audiences since the beginning of the pandemic.

“I have yet to go to a soccer game and before I met him, I had never seen a soccer game,” he shared. “I didn’t really grow up with sports, especially American sports, it was never really on my radar.”

Woodley added: “I don’t know him as the soccer kid, I know him as the nerd who wants to introduce ‘Jeopardy!’, That’s the guy I know.”
