Shailene Woodley has confirmed that she is engaged to Green Bay Packers defender Aaron Rodgers.
The actor discussed his relationship with Rodgers on the show “Tonight with Ton’s My Fallon” on Monday, saying that they were engaged “a little while ago”. Rodgers, 37, mentioned his engagement and thanked his fiancée for accepting her third career MVP award on February 6, but did not say her name.
“Yes, we are engaged,” Woodley said. “We are engaged. But this is not new news for us, you know, so it’s kind of funny. Everyone is avoiding it now և we are like. “Yes, we have been engaged for some time.”
Woodley, 29, said he had not yet attended one of Rodgers’ games, citing an increase in attendance due to an epidemic last season. Woodley added that he had never seen a football game before meeting Rodgers.
“He’s just a wonderful, incredible person in the first place, but I never thought I could get engaged to someone who was throwing a ball for a living,” Woodley said. “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, yes.’ But he’s really that good at it. “
Woodley said he realized Rodgers was a footballer when they met but did not know much about his career. He said friends are now trying to get him to watch Rogers’ remarkable moments on YouTube.
“I do not know him as a football boy,” said Woodley. I know him as a backgammon person who wants to host Danger. This is my boyfriend. “He just knows the sport very well.”
Last month, Rogers was announced as a guest star on the local game show. Long-term “Danger”. Announcer Alex Trebek died of cancer on November 8. Rogers’ hospitality season begins on April 5.
Woodley spoke with Fallon on Monday to promote his “Mauritanian” film. His previous credits include the HBO series The Big Little Lie, The Sin in Our Stars, and The Deviant.
