Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers captivated audiences with their whirlwind romance.
According to Woodley, the two met during the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. Though speculations of a possible romance first surfaced in July 2020, the connection remained a well guarded secret for quite some time. Fans barely discovered out the pair was dating a few days before their February 6, 2021 engagement announcement.
Rodgers formerly dated racing car driver Danica Patrick. They started dating in January 2018 and ended their relationship in July 2020. Years before their romance began, the former couple met at the ESPY Awards in 2012.
In May 2018, Patrick said on Jenny McCarthy‘s SiriusXM show, “We both recall meeting one other, it was swift.” “When I received his email address, I remember thinking, ‘Oh, not a phone number?’ ‘Isn’t it just an email address?’
Woodley dated rugby player Ben Volavola before meeting Rodgers. In 2017, the activist acknowledged their relationship by posting an Instagram photo of herself holding Volavola’s hand.
Following their breakup, the Divergent actress talked about her love life with Bustle in April 2020, revealing that she’d previously used romances to “distract” from getting to know herself.
“I was in a relationship with someone, and we were on the verge of getting married and having kids,” she explained. “I recognised I was still at a stage in my life where I couldn’t really commit.” I couldn’t be as available to him as I would have liked. “I didn’t love myself completely.”
Woodley and Rodgers are both proponents of mindfulness. “Read books, meditate, speak things to life, manifest the aspirations of your heart, challenge everything, and promote love and optimism,” the Super Bowl champion said after announcing his engagement at the NFL Honors Dinner. Woodley has previously discussed her experiences with anxiety and meditation.
The twosome, on the other hand, split up after more than a year of dating. In February 2022, Us Weekly reported their breakup.

After more than two years together, Rodgers and his girlfriend Patrick called it quits. Patrick’s rep confirmed to Us Weekly on July 16, 2020 that the couple were “no longer together” after she unfollowed him on Instagram.
The NFL star opened up about recent changes in his personal life without divulging too much information. On September 22, 2020, he said on The Pat McAfee Show, “I have a new and increased love of life, and I have made decisions, actions, and behaviours that have put me in a lot better mindset.” “Over the last few months, a lot of things have come together in my life that have been incredibly joyful.”
Engaged! On February 6, 2021, Rodgers announced their relationship at the NFL Honors ceremony in Los Angeles.
My nose hair was scraped for 180 days and I played in front of little or no fans. He said, “I got married and played my best football.” Before saying “my fiancée,” he thanked several people.
On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on February 22, 2021, Woodley proposed to Jimmy Fallon and displayed her massive engagement ring.
In the Big Little Lies star’s words, “I never dreamed I’d be engaged to someone who hurled balls.” Before the coronavirus outbreak, Woodley said her fiance had never seen her play football.
On March 4, 2021, the quarterback stated that “there’s been a lot of good” in his life recently. That was the high moment, though. “That’s clearly the best thing that’s happened to me in a year.”
Miles Teller, his wife, Keleigh Sperry Teller, and several friends joined them at the Kentucky Derby.
Woodley updated Entertainment Tonight on where she and her fiancé are in the wedding planning process, saying they’re just “enjoying” being engaged for the time being. She explained, “There isn’t any wedding preparation going on.” “There’s no need to haste. We’re not in any hurry.”
“I know Aaron’s body. “First of all, his feet are a LOT bigger,” Woodley said on Instagram after a news outlet allegedly shared a photo of Rodgers in L.A. during his COVID-19 confinement. The hairiest hands on the f—king globe, according to those who know Aaron outside of the world of fanatical sports [stories]. Clearly, oblivious homie does not.”
The actress defended her fiance after he tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in the month and missed one Packers game. “Y’all need to chill down,” she said, referring to Rodgers’ 10-day quarantine.
A week after their breakup, Woodley and Rodgers were seen together in Los Angeles. They were over, a source told Us following their outing. “Aaron has more time now that the season is over and can focus on a romance. She hasn’t entirely slammed the door or she wouldn’t have consented to meet with him.”
“Their love for one other never went away,” the person continued.
Despite reports of reconciliation, Rodgers and Woodley had not made up their minds. They may reconcile or they may conclude they aren’t meant to be, the person said. “That’s up to them.”
A source told Us exclusively that after the estranged couple was seen at the same wedding earlier in the month. A month ago, the twosome fuelled reconciliation speculations by spending time together at Los Angeles’ Erewhon Market.
“Aaron misses Shailene and wants her back,” the insider said. And he thinks they would be a fantastic match.
