Things seem fine in their relationship, but Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers are still getting more distant.
The Green Bay Quarterback is about to start another season, which keeps him mainly in Wisconsin. His fiancée, though, will be working on her own projects, keeping her away from Aaron. Interestingly, Aaron thinks the distance will be "a good thing."
"It's a busy work time for her, so [my decision] probably came at a good time for both of us to be able to focus on our work," Aaron told Haute Living.
The decision he's referring to is his choice to return to the Packers rather than retire, sit out a season or force a trade — all three of which were very much on the table over the summer.
"I think it's going to be a good thing. I mean, her work was shut down for an entire year [during the coronavirus pandemic], and she's booked a number of projects," he said. "She enjoys working and her own routine, which I obviously enjoy, too."
Aaron and Shailene were first linked in the summer of 2020, and the NFL MVP shocked fans when he casually revealed in February that he was engaged. At the time, he didn't mention the "Divergent" star's name.
Shailene ultimately spoke about Aaron's announcement with Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show."
"For us, it's not new news, so it's kind of funny everybody right now is freaking out over it," she said. "We're like, 'Yeah, we've been engaged for a while.'"
It might also be a while until they actually get hitched. In chatting with "Entertainment Tonight," she discussed their wedding plans — or lack thereof.
"There's no wedding planning happening," she said in July. "There's no rush. We've got no rush."
