Aaron Rodgers and Shailene Woodley shocked the world with their engagement announcement in February 2021. Much of the gossip world had just caught up with the fact that Rodgers was no longer dating Danica Patrick when Rodgers made the announcement. The quick turnaround might be romantic, but some fans are left wondering how Patrick feels about the entire thing. Apparently, she’s perfectly fine with it.

How long has Aaron Rodgers been dating Shailene Woodley?

Woodley and Rodgers are keeping much of their private life private. In fact, most people didn’t know the two were even dating when Rodgers announced their engagement in February. Now, Woodley has opened up a bit about her time with the NFL superstar. Still, the couple is keeping their relationship timeline under wraps. 

What we do know is that Woodley and Rodgers met during the pandemic and have conducted at least part of their relationship long distance.  Woodley was filming in Montreal for most of the NFL football season, while Rodgers was sticking close to home in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The pair were also in other relationships for part of the pandemic. Woodley was dating a rugby player until April 2020, and Rodgers was famously involved with Patrick through part of 2020, too.

When did Danica Patrick and Aaron Rodgers call it quits?

Woodley and Rodgers got serious quickly. The couple met during the pandemic and have been engaged “for a while,” according to Woodley. Fans were mostly shocked by the announcement because Rodgers and his longtime girlfriend, Patrick, did not call it quits all that long ago.

In July 2020, Rodgers’ agent confirmed to Page Six that the signal-caller and the former NASCAR driver were no longer together. Their official date of the split is unknown, but they were an item for about two and a half years. Before hooking up with Rodgers, Patrick dated Ricky Stenhouse Jr., a fellow racecar driver, for five years. Before Patrick, Rodgers was in a high-profile relationship with Olivia Munn.

According to the source, Patrick had wanted to marry Rodgers, but she has grieved the loss and is over it. Still, one would think the quick engagement has to sting a bit. Munn is far more removed from the situation and reportedly could not care less who Rodgers marries. She’s had several years to get past her former love, though. Patrick has had a matter of months.
