Who is Aaron Rodgers dating now?

Aaron and Danica called it quits after a lot of speculation about their imminent marriage — even after Danica even had talked about a proposal on SiriusXM’s The Jenny McCarthy Show back in November 2019.

Pretty much as soon as the news of his split from Danica Patrick hit the internet, Aaron Rodgers was spotted with Big Little Lies star Shailene Woodley, and many have been speculating that the two are a couple.

Gossip site TerezOwens.com reported that the Divergent actress and NFL quarterback were spotted getting “cozy” in Lake Tahoe, while Aaron was there for a celebrity golf tournament, back in July.

According to an anonymous source, Danica was the one who introduced Shailene to Aaron, which led Danica to naturally be “devastated by the betrayal.” However, there’s still been no confirmation from either Aaron or Shailene that they are an official couple. 

It's worth noting that Aaron has been known to keep his personal life extremely private, especially after his very public relationship with actress Olivia Munn ended in 2017.

Aaron has previously said how difficult it was to maintain a relationship in the public eye. And for the first few months of his relationship with Danica, the couple purposefully kept their relationship status under wraps.

Aaron Rodgers revealed he's engaged in February 2021.

On Feb. 6, the Green Bay Packers quarterback was named the MVP during the NFL Honors broadcast. He made a virtually appearance to accept the honor — during which he casually mentioned he was engaged.

"It's an honor to win this award for the third time. 2020 was definitely a crazy year filled with lots of change and 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," Aaron said, before adding, "I got engaged."

In the list of people Aaron went on to thank was his soon-to-be bride, whom he still didn't name. (But we're all convinced it's Shailene.)

"I'd like to thank first and foremost my teammates for their support, inspiration, protection and incredible play on the field. The coaching staff for their efforts to make this fun every single week, the energy, the positivity and the daily presentations really kept us going," he said.

Aaron added, "Off the field, I got a really great group of people that support me. So I'd like to thank my team," also thanking, "my fiancée."

Neither Aaron nor Danica have come out to comment publicly on their split, or to give a reason for their breakup to their fans. In December 2019, a source told E! News that it was just a matter of when, not if, the couple would tie the knot. But based on the timing of their social media posts, it seems that the couple called it quits just a month or two later, some time in the spring.

Now that Aaron Rodgers is officially off the market, perhaps fans can finally let go of his previous relationship with Danica Patrick. Congrats to Aaron and Shailene Woodely on their engagement!
