Report Details How Danica Patrick & Olivia Munn Feel About Aaron Rodgers Surprise Engagement
Earlier this month, Aaron Rodgers surprisingly announced he got engaged just days after rumors started that he was dating actress Shailene Woodley.
Woodley is working in Montreal, where she is filming a crime thriller called Misanthrope. During his NFL MVP award acceptance speech at the NFL awards ceremony, Rodgers thanked his “fiance” and said he “got engaged” during the past year.
“It’s an honor to win this award for the third time. 2020 was definitely a crazy year, filled with lots of change, growth, some amazing memorable moments. 180 straight days of having my nose hairs scraped. Playing for very little fans or no stands the entire season, I got engaged, and I played some of the best football of my career,” Rodgers said during his acceptance speech.
Rodgers had previously been in two high-profiled relationships with former NASCAR star Danica Patrick and actress Olivia Munn.
Hollywood Life shared some details on how Patrick feels about the engagement, seeing as how they had just broken up in summer 2020:
“The 38-year-old former race car driver has moved on from Aaron, a source close to her shares EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife, and is focused on “traveling and working on her podcast [Pretty Intense.]” She and Aaron began dating in 2018, making their public debut as a couple at that year’s Daytona 500. They seemed like they were on a path towards marriage – they reportedly bought a $28 million mansion in Malibu – but by July 2020, the two had called it quits.
“[Danica] was in love. She wanted to start a family,” a source told HollywoodLife. “She wanted to get married. That didn’t happen. She has grieved about it, but Danica is a tremendously tough woman, and dealing with Aaron is not a part of her future, so she has decided to avoid thinking about him. She is letting the past be the past.”
As for as Olivia goes, she couldn’t care less.
“Olivia’s thoughts on Aaron Rodgers as an ex and anything more has no existence in Olivia’s mind,” a source close to the actress tells HollywoodLife.
“[Olivia] doesn’t care one bit,” added the insider.
“Whether he is involved with anyone and now that he is engaged doesn’t dictate how Olivia deals with her life,” the insider tells HollywoodLife. “She really is paying zero attention to the situation; she has her own life to worry about. She doesn’t get tied up in unneeded drama.”
Well, there you have it.
