Actress Shailene Woodley has confirmed that she is engaged to a Green Bay Packers football athlete named Aaron Charles Rodgers or usually called Aaron Rogers. She conveyed the news on The Tonight Show, starring Jimmy Fallon, last Monday. Fallon asked whether it was true that Woodley was engaged because the media discussed this earlier following pictures of Shailene wearing a mysterious ring while going out.
Shailene Woodley admits that she also read an article about her engagement to Rodgers some time ago. She thought it was a funny thing because she had actually been engaged to Rodgers for quite a while. “Yes, we are engaged. But for us, this is not new news, so a little funny. Right now, everyone is shocked, and we say, ‘Yes, we have been engaged for quite a while,” said Woodley with a bright smile on her face.
It was later explained that Rodgers was an extraordinary man. However, Woodley never thought about getting engaged to a man who worked as a football athlete, et alone a person who does sport for a living. The 29-year-old actress explained that she met Rodgers while on a walk with her dog. At that time, Woodley felt her dog ‘encouraged’ her to date Rodgers.
Fallon then asked Woodley if she was a football fan. She admitted that she had not had time to watch a football match because she met Rodgers in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, meaning that the entire stadium is closed. The couple’s meeting was extremely unplanned, just like how true love mainly occurs.
“Before meeting him, I never watched a football game at all. I didn’t grow up in sports, especially American sports,” said Woodley.
The first introductions of Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers were quite interesting. Woodley did not know Rodgers as a football athlete but as a host of the sports show Jeopardy.
“I don’t know him as a football athlete. I know he’s nerdy who wants to host Jeopardy. That’s the man I know. He happens to be really good at sports, too,” Woodley said.
