Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and actress Shailene Woodley have reportedly terminated their engagement, according to TMZ.
Rodgers and Woodley dated for nearly two years, but had been separated since about December last year. The report cited difficulties as Rodgers prioritized his football career, while Woodley at times felt neglected under their relationship.
Packers quarterbacks extensive dating history will now continue as his past relationships include racing star Danica Patrick and actress Olivia Munn. While all of these relationships were unique in their own right, Rodgers admitted he was looking forward to having kids with Woodley as late as March last year.
“I just think it would be so much fun,” Rodgers told TMZ Sports at the time. “I’ve been dreaming about what it would be like, and I’m really excited about that chapter when it comes.”

Woodley defended Rodgers in the midst of his COVID-19 vaccine controversy, posting on Instagram that “Literally, you should all calm fk down.”

“I did not really grow up with sports, especially American sports,” Shailene admitted, per In Touch Weekly. “It was never really on my radar. When we met, I also knew he was a football guy, but I did not know what kind of football guy he was. And I’m still learning all the time.”
Rodgers and Woodley grew apart during the football season, with the former out in Green Bay most of the time focusing solely on leading the Packers to the Super Bowl – a feat he ultimately failed in a loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the division. round.
“There were too many obstacles. They are both adults and decided to part amicably,” an insider said, according to In Touch.
