Aaron Rodgers has revealed he's engaged.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback made a virtual appearance on Saturday at the NFL Honors awards, during which he named the Associated Press' Most Valuable Player.

According to the Green Bay Packers, Rodgers, 37, is the sixth quarterback to be named AP MVP three times since the award's inception in 1957.

"It's an honor to win this award for the third time," Rodgers said. "2020 was definitely a crazy year filled with lots of change and growth, some amazing, memorable moments. One hundred eighty straight days of having my nose hair scraped, playing for very little fans or no stands the entire season. I got engaged."

Rodgers, who previously dated actress Olivia Munn and racecar driver Danica Patrick, then thanked his "fiancée."


"I played some of the best football of my career," Rodgers said. "So I'd like to thank first and foremost my teammates for their support, inspiration, protection, and incredible play on the field."

"The coaching staff for their efforts to make this fun every single week, the energy, the positivity, and the daily presentations really kept us going," he continued.

Rodgers then noted that "off the field, I got a really great group of people that support me," and thanked several members of his team before saying, "my fiancée."

Days before Rodgers' revelation, E! News first reported that Rodgers was cozying up with Shailene Woodley. The couple has reportedly "kept things private and low key."

"They have seen each other and been in touch," a source told the outlet. "They continue to talk and see each other when they can. They are both focused on their careers, but they also make time for each other."


US Weekly later reported it had confirmed the relationship, which a source said was currently "long-distance."

In September, Rodgers appeared on the Pat McAfee Show, where he spoke about his "new and increased love of life."

"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," he said at the time.

Rodgers 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."
