It’s official. Actress Shailene Woodley, 29, is engaged to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, 37, despite dating rumors between the two only surfacing at the start of February.
The Big Little Lies star told Jimmy Fallon on the Feb. 22 The Tonight Show, “Yes, we are engaged. But for us, it’s not ‘new’ news. 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.'”
Shailene then gushed about her fiance before throwing a little sweet shade at what he does for a living. “He’s, first off, just a wonderful, incredible human being. But I never thought I’d be engaged with somebody who threw balls for a living.”
She continued, “like, I never thought as a little girl, I was like, ‘Yeah, when I grow up, I’m gonna marry someone who throws balls! Yeah!’ But he’s really just so good at it,” she explained. Jimmy Fallon just couldn’t stop laughing.
As for Danica Patrick? The 38-year-old former race car driver is has moved on from Aaron Rodgers, a source close to her shares, and is focused on traveling and working on her podcast ‘Pretty Intense’
She and Aaron began dating in 2018, making their public debut as a couple at that year’s Daytona 500. They seemed like they were on a path towards marriage – they reportedly bought a $28 million mansion in Malibu – but by July 2020, the two had called it quits.
Danica Patrick was in love and wanted to get married and start a family. As we know, that didn’t happen. She has grieved about it, but Danica is a tremendously tough woman, and dealing with Aaron is not a part of her future, so she has decided to avoid thinking about him.
