“I still have never been to a football game because we met during this wacky, wacky time, snd all of the stadiums were closed,” she said.

Per Woodley’s explanation to Fallon, she not only got engaged to the NFL player within a few months, they decided to take things a step forward.
Like many concealed events between the couple, fans are not certain about the time they moved in together.
In the video, the couple were being goofy, as they laid down on a brown couch, speaking to their fans about the iconic gameshow “Jeopardy,” which Rodgers served as a guest host for.
Rodgers Faced Backlash From Fans
Unlike his publicized previous relationship with NASCAR driver, Danica Patrick, Rodgers was secretive about the details of his romance with Woodley .
Although many supported were excited for the couple, some of Woodley’s fans could not bear the thought of the NFL player trying to hide their relationship.
Some Instagram users wondered why the player refused to post a single photo with the actress, whereas, he still had photos of his ex lover on his page.
While all these may have been taken into account by the couple, they seem very content with their relationship, and are happy as ever.
So, it seems the pandemic relationship was not all that bad!
