The “Big Little Lies” actess appeared via Zoom on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Monday, February 22. She opened up about her surprise engagement to the NFL star and debuted her diamond engagement ring, even though she did her best to hide it. She was very candid about her romance but only showed off the ring when she was using her hands while speaking passionately about her new film, “The Mauritanian,” with Jodi Foster. Regardless of her intentions, viewers peeped at the diamond ring in all its glory!
It is hard to determine exactly what type of ring she has, but it appears to be a large round stone. Fans were shocked when Rodgers revealed that he was engaged during his NFL Honors acceptance speech for his MVP title earlier this month, but Shailene admitted that they had been engaged for “a while.” The two lovebirds met during the “crazy time” of 2020 but quickly fell in love.
“For us, it’s not ‘new’ news,” Woodley told Jimmy Fallon. “So it’s kind of funny. Everybody right now is freaking out and we’re just like…yeah, we’ve been engaged for a while.”
Shailene called Aaron a “wonderful, incredible human being” and praised his intelligence when asked about his “Jeopardy!” hosting gig. “He just happens to also be very good at sports!”
As we previously mentioned, Aaron spilled the beans about his surprise engagement on February 8 during his MVP speech for the NFL Honors. He started his acceptance speech by saying what an honor it is to win for the third time. “2020 was definitely a crazy year,” he exclaimed, “filled with lots of change.” The QB then cracked a joke about all the nasal swab tests he had to take as he listed all the out-of-ordinary events that went down this past year. “180 straight days of getting my nose hair scraped,” he said before dropping the engagement bomb.
“I got engaged, and I played some of the best football of my career,” Rodgers casually remarked.
He went on to thank a long list of people… including his unnamed fiance.

Rumors about their relationship started in October when Shailene was seen hanging around Green Bay. A source told E! that they were trying to “private and low key,” but that is kind of hard to do when you announce that you are engaged to a national audience.
Months before the big announcement, Aaron was interviewed on the “Pat McAfee Show” in September, where he opened up about how happy he has been during this past year.
“I’ve made decisions and changes and habits that put me in a lot better headspace, and there’s just a lot of things that have come together in my life over the last few months that have really been enjoyable.”
Aaron continued, “That’s why I’m having so much fun, and it starts with love. And then surrounding yourself with people that you really enjoy.”
If dating a member of Hollywood’s elite makes you play better, then a lot of quarterbacks will be attending a lot more fancy movie premieres!
