Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers have been living on Cloud Nine since disclosing their engagement to the public in February 2021. But now, the Big Little Lies star, 29, is opening up about how her whirlwind romance with the NFL star, 37, came to be. “Starting a relationship where you immediately move in with someone — because it’s a pandemic and you can’t just get on a plane and go back and forth on weekends — taught us a lot about each other very quickly,” Shailene shared with Shape.“We jumped in headfirst and got some of the sticky bits out of the way early,” the actress revealed. Of course, the beginning of the couple’s romance was not the way that Shailene envisioned their relationship unfolding. But having someone to share those difficult moments in the early days of lockdown was incredibly helpful for the star. “I was by myself with my dog and didn’t see anyone for three months,” she explained. “It forced me to be still and quiet.” After several months of self-isolation, Shailene and Aaron quarantined together in Montreal. Shailene was in production for a new project, while Aaron was busy watching episodes of Jeopardy to prepare for his guest host appearance.
