This is already looking like a great week as far as celebrity engagements are concerned, as Shailene Woodley has confirmed that she and Aaron Rodgers are officially engaged!
Unlike yesterday’s news where it wasn’t explicitly confirmed whether Khloe Kardashian is engaged to her boyfriend and baby daddy Tristan Thompson (we only had a picture of a gargantuan diamond ring on her ring finger to go on) there is no doubt here, as it’s officially been confirmed by the bride-to-be herself.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
This engagement didn’t happen at the weekend though, as the Big Little Lies actress and the NFL star have actually been engaged for a while…
“For us, it’s not new news, you know?” the 29-year-old told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show last night.
“So it’s kind of funny. Everybody right now is freaking out over it and we’re like, ‘Yeah, we’ve been engaged for a while.'”
We think the actress and the 37-year-old Green Bay Packers quarterback look like the perfect couple – we’re already imagining what their genetically gifted children will look like – however, she did confess that she never pictured herself marrying 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,” she said.
“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.”
We are beyond excited for them and hope that they will share some details about their wedding – whenever that may be – when it happens.
Congratulations again, guys!
