Aaron Rodgers’ bride-to-be, Shailene Woodley, recently revealed the agreement surrounding their engagement. The couple kept their relationship a secret, and now Woodley has spilled the beans as to why. According to The Sun, the love birds wanted to control the information revealed about their relationship.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Shailene Woodley confessed about the decision to keep it a secret. “When we announced that we were engaged, we wanted to do that only because we didn’t want someone else to do it before we did.”
She continued: “And we didn’t do it for months and months after we had become engaged, but the reaction to it was really a lot, and so we were like, ‘Let’s just politely decline [to talk about the relationship] for a little while and live in our little bubble.'”
Per the outlet, mutual friends of Aaron Rodgers and Shailene Woodley introduced the two to one another, and their relationship blossomed throughout the pandemic. They moved in together within a few months of meeting, and their love quickly grew into an engagement.

“You could travel, but you had masks on,” Shailene recalled of traveling back and forth from Wisconsin to California. “There was a sense of anonymity that otherwise, I don’t think we would have had. We were really able to get to know one another the way we wanted to get to know one another and not have any noise or chaos around us.”
Rodgers stunned fans earlier this year when he announced to the world that he would soon be off the market. He announced the happy news during a virtual appearance to accept the 2020 MVP award.
“It’s an honor to win this award for the third time,” he began.”2020 was definitely a crazy year filled with lots of change and growth, some amazing memorable moments. 180 straight days of having my nose hair scraped, playing for very little fans or no stands the entire season. “
And then he dropped the bomb: “I got engaged. Off the field, I got a really great group of people that support me. So I’d like to thank my team and my fiancée….”
Interestingly, just days before the announcement, rumors began to circulate that the famed quarterback was dating Shailene Woodley. However, at the time, neither Rodgers nor Woodley officially confirmed any of the reports. Before Shailene Woodley, Aaron Rodgers dated other A-list celebrities, including actress Olivia Munn from 2014 to 2017. After they ended their relationship, he dated former race car driver Danica Patrick from 2018 to 2020.
Shailene Woodley previously dated Australian-Fijian rugby player Ben Volavola. As of now, the couple has yet to announce a wedding date.
