Fans got a rare glimpse into the relationship between the newly engaged couple, Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers. On Monday, the “Big Little Lies” actress posted on her Instagram stories to publicly show how proud she is of Rodgers for beginning his hosting stint on “Jeopardy!”
In addition to getting a peek at the cute couple’s private life, the fans also got a glimpse of the beautiful diamond ring Shailene Woodley was rocking on her ring finger. If you blinked, you’d miss it, but that didn’t stop fans from screenshotting the moment and posting it online. On Twitter, the screenshot of the jewel quickly circulated for millions to see. Even though the Green Bay Packers MVP is accustomed to a rock of a different nature, it didn’t stop him from delivering when picking out the dazzling gem.
So far, the celebrity couple has been low-key about their relationship and subsequent engagement. Just a few weeks before the couple announced their engagement, PEOPLE magazine confirmed the relationship. In the weeks after the announcement, the couple is slowly posting together more and more. They’ve also begun to talk about their relationship more openly.
In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Shailene Woodley said they had been engaged “for a while now” after meeting amid the pandemic.
“He’s, first off, just a wonderful, incredible human being. I never thought I’d be engaged with somebody who threw balls for a living,” she said to Fallon in February. “Like, I never thought as a little girl, when I grow up, I’m gonna marry someone who throws balls! Yeah!’ But he’s really just so good at it.”
Shailene Woodley on Fiance: ‘I’m Constantly Learning’
“We met during this whacky, whacky time and all the stadiums were closed that he was playing in. I didn’t really grow up with sports, especially American sports. It was never really on my radar,” the actress continued. “When we met, I knew he was a football guy, but I didn’t know what kind of a football guy he was. And I’m still constantly learning.”
Shailene Woodley isn’t the only one who’s gone on the record talking about the relationship. Even their friends have been open about why they think it’s a perfect match.
“While some might be perplexed of how compatible they are, it’s obvious among those close to them that they’re meant to be,” a source told Us Weekly. “They’re a great match because they’re both hardworking, career-focused, have a similar lifestyle and are down to earth.”
