Actress Shailene Woodley has confirmed her engagement to Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, discussing the relationship with "The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon Monday night.

"I keep reading that you are engaged to football great Aaron Rodgers," said Fallon. "Is that true? Are congratulations in order?"

"I mean, I've been reading that too, it's kind of funny," joked Woodley. "Yes, we are engaged. But for us, it's not new news."

Woodley and Rodgers were first linked in 2020, but rumors swirled about a "low key" relationship in early February 2021. A report from E! News said the quarterback is in a "private" relationship with "Big Little Lies" actress Woodley.

Rodgers announced their surprise engagement during hisMVP award acceptancespeech on Feb. 6.

"We got engaged a while ago," said Woodley. "He's...a wonderful, incredible human being."

If you're wondering if she's been to a game...well, she hasn't.

Fallon asked if Woodley was a football fan or had spent much time in Green Bay, to which she admitted she hasn't due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"I still have never been to a football game because we met through this wacky time," said Woodley. "All the stadiums were closed that he's been playing in. I have yet to go to a football game. Before I met him, I had never seen one football game... I don't know him as a football guy, I know him as the nerd who wants to host 'Jeopardy.'"

Congrats to the happy couple!
