Aaron Rodgers Says He’s Engaged During MVP Speech
Aaron Rodgers winning his 3rd NFL MVP award is big news in itself, but that's not what everyone is talking about.
Rodgers dropped a bomb in his MVP acceptance speech telling the world that he got engaged! "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," Rodgers said. "I got engaged and I played some of the best football of my career." Later in the speech he also thanked his fiancé.
But who is the Green Bay QB engaged to? Rodgers was dating former NASCAR and IndyCar driver Danica Patrick, but they broke up early in 2020 and just last week E! News reported that Rodgers was dating 'Big Little Lies' actress Shailene Woodley, and now it appears they are more than dating.
An insider told E! News that the couple "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."
Rodgers, by not using his fiancé's name, clearly has no desire to have the public and the media dissect his love life after two high profile relationships with Patrick and before that actress Olivia Munn.
Rodgers hinted that he may be in a new relationship back in September when he was a guest on the Pat McAfee Show saying, "the last few months that have really been enjoyable and reminded me and given me perspective -- on life and in football -- to view things through the most positive lens I possibly can and that's why I'm having so much fun and it starts with love, and then surrounding yourself with people that you really enjoy."
