Aaron Rodgers Opens Up About Shailene Woodley

Green Bay Packers NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers has had a slew of high-profile relationships. After his longtime love with now ex-fiancee Olivia Munn fizzled in 2017, Rodgers went on to date NASCAR star Danica Patrick. The couple parted ways in July 2020 after two years of dating, but Rodgers didn't waste any time finding another high-profile star to woo. 

Rodgers began a whirlwind romance with Big Little Lies actor Shailene Woodley reportedly as early as May 2020. Seems like a little overlap with Patrick, don't you think? Then immediately following the 2021 Super Bowl, Rodgers revealed that he and Woodley are engaged. Plus, there were major rumors that Woodley's The Mauritanian co-star and Packers fan Jodie Foster set them up! (Unfortunately for us, Foster later denied doing so.) While Woodley only confirmed the news of the engagement on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Feb. 22, 2021, she did reveal that they kept the engagement under wraps for "a while." 

Now, it's Rodgers' turn to open up about sweet relationship and what the future holds for them!

Aaron Rodgers hopes to start a family with fiancee Shailene Woodley

Aaron Rodgers certainly isn't holding back about his love for fiancee Shailene Woodley. Rodgers opened up during an Instagram Live Q&A with Zenith Watches CEO Julien Tornare. "Obviously [getting engaged was] the best thing that's happened to me in the last year," Rodgers said. 

But Rodgers didn't stop there. He hinted at what's next on the horizon for the couple. "The next great challenge will be being a father," Rodgers continued. "[I'm in] the age group where a lot of close friends from high school and college are fathers now and have families of their own." So could he be expecting anytime soon with Woodley? 

"Maybe not in the immediate future but it's definitely something I look forward to," Rodgers stated. "It's going to be a really fun challenge ... I'll look forward to taking care of another life at some point. ... I've dreamt about what that will be like, I'm really excited about that chapter whenever that comes." 

First step is walking down the aisle, of course! A source told People that "no one has gotten a 'save the date' card yet," but fans are hoping for a wedding later this year. As Rodgers and Woodley have proven, they are masters at the element of surprise.
