Aaron Rodgers Says He's "Grateful" For Shailene Woodley Following Their Split

Feb 22 2022 - 6:50am

Aaron Rodgers [1] and Shailene Woodley [2] split up after less than two years together, People [3] reported on Feb. 16 after In Touch [4] broke the news exclusively. "It was an amicable split [5]; it just wasn't working," a source told the outlet. "They're very different people with busy careers and there were obstacles that they couldn't surmount. They will remain friendly; there's no bad blood and no drama. It just didn't work out for them."

The news comes nearly one year after Woodley and Rodgers confirmed their engagement [6]. "So, it's kind of funny. Everybody right now is freaking out over it, and we're like, 'Yeah, we've been engaged for a while,'" Woodley said on "The Tonight Show" in February 2021. "He's, first off, just a wonderful, incredible human being. But I never thought I'd be engaged with somebody who threw balls for a living. I never thought as a little girl, 'Yeah, when I grow up, I'm gonna marry someone who throws balls! Yeah!' But he's really just so good at it."

It remains unclear exactly when the couple began dating [7], but Woodley did tell Jimmy Fallon [8] that she and Rodgers met during the pandemic [9]. Since then, the former couple has kept details of their relationship [10] under wraps.

Woodley has not publicly addressed the breakup at this time, but on Feb. 22, Rodgers shared a carousel of photos [11] with his loved ones on Instagram — which included one of him cuddled up with Woodley prior to their breakup. "Here's some... #MondayNightGratitude for some of the incredibly special people in my life, with some pictures from the last beautiful year," the NFL star wrote in his caption. "@shailenewoodley, thanks for letting me chase after you the first couple months after we met, and finally letting me catch up to you and be a part of your life." He added: "Thanks for always having my back, for the incredible kindness you show me and everyone you meet, and for showing me what unconditional love looks like. I love you and am grateful for you."
