American footballer Aaron Rodgers shocked fans when he announced he was engaged while accepting an award. It turns out his fiancé is none other than Big Little Lies actress Shailene Woodley.
On February 6, Rodgers accepted the NFL Most Valued Player award during a virtual appearance on the NFL Honors broadcast. During his speech, he casually slipped in that he was engaged but did not name his fiancé.
“2020 was definitely a crazy year filled with lots of change, 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. I got engaged and I played some of the best football in my career,” he said.
“So I’d like to thank, first and foremost, my teammates for their support, their inspiration, protection, incredible play on the field … off the field I’ve got a great group of people that support me, so I’d like to thank my team.” He then listed a slew of people before shouting out “my fiancée.”
A source confirmed to People magazine that the Descendants actor and the Green Bay Packers quarterback are engaged and incredibly happy.
“They are very happy together. It’s not surprising he proposed so fast. When you know, you know, right?” said the insider.
This engagement comes mere days after US Magazine confirmed the pair were dating.
