Sorry ladies — but it looks like National Football League great and future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers if officially off the market.
Rodgers, arguably the NFL’ s most eligible bachelor, reveals on Saturday that he is marrying to actress Shailene Woodley. The 29-year-old Woodley began acting and modeling at 4-years-old and has roles in major films such as the “Divergent” series. She also drew acclaim and praise for playing a sexual assault survivor in HBO series “Big Little Lies.”
Rumors of a relationship between the football player and actress only began to emerge a few days ago. The pair were reportedly trying to keep their relationship on the down low and out of the public spotlight. That all changed Saturday evening at the annual NFL Honors ceremony.
Aaron Rodgers Claims MVP Award for 2020 Season
In a surprise to no one, the Green Bay Packers quarterback took his third Most Valuable Player award for the season. While that part certainly wasn’t a shocker, Rodgers’ acceptance speech perks up a lot of ears as the thanked his fiancé. A fiancé that seemingly no one knew he had.
“It’s an honor to win this award for the third time,” Aaron Rodgers says in his winning speech. “2020 was definitely a crazy year, filled with lots of change, growth, some amazing memorable moments. 180 straight days of having my nose hairs scraped. Playing for very little fans or no stands the entire season, I got engaged, and I played some of the best football of my career.”
While he obviously tried to undersell his engagement by tacking it on to the end of the speech, it was the evening’s big news. Not much else is out there about their relationship as they do their best to keep it under wraps. There is no word on when or where the couple will tie the knot. Aaron Rodgers previously had romantic relationships with NASCAR driver Danica Patrick and actress Olivia Munn.
Rodgers, 37, had a tremendous season for the Packers and was the frontrunner for the MVP heading into Saturday’s ceremony. He completed more than 70 percent of his passes for 4,299 yards and 48 touchdowns.
