Big Little Lies actress Shailene Woodley has confirmed the news…she is engaged to NFL star Aaron Rodgers!
In an interview with Jimmy Fallon due to air in the U.S. today, the actress reveals they’ve actually been engaged “for a while now” and her dog may’ve played a part in the match-making!
“When I first met him, I think my dog like pulled me aside and was like, ‘If you don’t date this dude, I will disown you as my mother because the three feet that I run with you when you throw a ball is nothing compared to the marathon I’m able to run with him!'”

Shailene also hilariously describes how she never imagined she’d end up with an athlete:
“He’s, first off, just a wonderful, incredible human being. But i never thought I’d be engaged with somebody who threw balls for a living. Like, I never thought as a little girl, I was like ‘Yeah, when I grow up, I’m gonna marry someone who throws balls! Yeah!’ But he’s really just so good at it.”
The rumours started popping up after Aaron mentioned he had a “fiancée” recently but this is the first time either of them have confirmed all the tabloid chit chat.
