We were finally able to catch a glimpse of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers out and about with his new fiancee, actress Shailene Woodley.
TMZ was able to obtain some photos of the high-profile couple boarding a private jet from Costa Careyes, Mexico on Monday. Rodgers and Woodley made things official back in February. It was during the NFL Honors awards ceremony that Rodgers casually announced that he “got engaged” in 2020.
Monday was the first time we have seen the two pictured together since news of their relationship took the media by storm. However, the pair certainly looked comfortable with one another. Rodgers was wearing a white long-sleeved shirt with sweats, while Woodley wore black leggings and an oversized sweater.
The Planet Shailene Twitter account posted the images from TMZ to their feed on Monday evening.

Aaron Rodgers and Shailene Woodley Kept Relationship Quiet
The news of the relationship between the 37-year-old quarterback and the 29-year-old Big Little Lies star was kept on the down-low for quite some time. It was just a couple of weeks after Aaron Rodgers let slip that the two were getting engaged. And following that, Woodley made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where she showed off her new engagement ring.
“He’s, first of all, just a wonderful, incredible human being, but I never thought I’d be engaged to someone who throws balls for a living,” she joked. “I don’t know him as a football guy, I know him as the nerd who wants to host Jeopardy!, you know? That’s the dude I know. He just happens to also be very good at sports.”
The Green Bay Packers star also commented on his new romance earlier in the month.
“I’m recently engaged, so been enjoying that part of my life,” Rodgers said. “Obviously that’s the best thing that’s happened to me in the last year.”
But even NFL analyst Erin Andrews didn’t see this one coming. She was recently on Watch What Happens Live when a fan called in wanting the latest scoop on the couple.
“[Packers quarterback Rodgers] kept that undercover,” she said. “Wow, he really did. There was kind of rumors I think that they were dating, but yeah I had no idea. And then he unveiled it at his MVP speech.”
