Former NASCAR driver Danica Patrick and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers dated for more than two years. But by the summer or fall of 2020, Rodgers was seeing “Big Little Lies” actress Shailene Woodley.

Did Patrick introduce the two? Some outlets are alleging that she did.

Moreover, now Rodgers is saying he got engaged, Page Six reports. 

In his acceptance speech for the Most Valuable Player award on Saturday night, Rodgers dropped the news of his engagement without naming his fiancée. 

“It’s an honor to win this award for the third time,” he said. “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.” 

Whether Patrick introduced Rodgers to Woodley or not, one thing’s for sure. She introduced him to his astrologer, Debra Silverman. And his astrologer also knows Woodley.

“Danica interviewed her for the podcast. I got to meet her, I got to get a reading, and it just spiked my interest,” Rodgers told the musician Nahko in an Instagram Live chat last March. “It’s just fascinating how accurate it can be when you start to understand your natal chart and it’s something that’s really kept my interest. And it’s fascinating to me and I’m excited every time I learn more about it.”

Woodley, for her part, got a reading from Silverman in November 2017. 

“I had the pleasure of sitting down recently with this young woman to discuss her interest in astrology, our mutual ability to delve into metaphysics, and our love for truth,” Silverman posted about Woodley on her website.

A source close to the couple told People that the two sparked right away. 

“They are very happy together,” the source said. “It’s not surprising he proposed so fast. When you know, you know, right?”

Another source told E! Online that the couple have been conducting a long-distance relationship.

“They have seen each other and been in touch,” the source said. “[Rodgers and Woodley] continue to talk and see each other when they can. They are both focused on their careers but they also make time for each other.”  

As for Patrick, she has bounced back from breakups before, and all signs point to her being able to move on from her most recent one.

“The next guy has his work cut out for him because my intuition, my standards, my boundaries, my wants and needs are off the charts,” Patrick said on “The Rachel Hollis Show” last autumn.
