Although the football player did not mention the actress by name, he took two brief moments out of his acceptance speech for this year’s Most Valuable Player award during Saturday night’s NFL Honors to offhandedly mention he got engaged this year and to thank his fiancee for support.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback, 37, was announced by Kevin Hart as this year’s MVP during the mostly virtual ceremony. Rodgers appeared via video call where he gave a heartfelt speech reflecting on the difficult season and thanked those closest to him for helping him get through it.

"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.
Later in the interview, he mentioned his "fiancee" among the list of family and friends who deserved his thanks.
Days prior to his big reveal, a source told E! News that Rodgers and Woodley, 29, have been a "low key" couple for a while.

Aylin took to TikTok to share a video explaining her money-saving tricks, revealing that she's spent just over £66 for her daughter Rosie's fifth birthday this week.
"Obviously we have four girls to buy for throughout the year, so we do try to save money where we can," she explained.

"They never really ask for things for their birthdays so I did decide to get what she’d asked for.
"This was £23.99 from Smyths."
That was the most expensive thing in the birthday haul.
Next up, Aylin showed two bargains she'd picked up in the sale at B&M - a hair stylist kit and a 'Work from Home' set, both of which were £3 instead of £12.99 each.Most read in LifestyleSHOP SHOCK My Amazon dress looked nothing like the picture - and risked embarrassmentFELINE FIND You have the eyes of a hawk if you can spot the cat hiding in optical illusionDECOR DISASTER Mistake you're making buying furniture could cost you hundreds of dollarsBOLTS AND NAILS I got a manicure from a ROBOT at Target - it's a major money and time saver
Showing a cute kitten Squishmallows toy, Aylin continued: "We do buy second hand, we go to boot sales a lot, and also charity shops, Facebook Marketplace etc.
"I know not everyone buys presents secondhand but we don’t mind. I got her this Squishmallows toy from a boot sale - she’s been asking for a Squishmallows for a while - and this was 50p.
"Obviously the Squishmallows new of this size can vary between £20 and £40."
There were some clothing bits among the presents - a Frozen dress that was reduced from £18 to £8 in Asda, and a T-shirt that was just £3 in the sale.
"She’s got a Disney Rapunzel dressing up dress," she continued.
"This was one of our biggest bargains of the year - we bought this at a boot sale and it was 20p."
Aylin also picked up two Barbie sets for her daughter for £5 each, as well as a LOL Surprise doll which was reduced from £20 to £4.
"She’s got a Real Littles backpack set, which was something she’s had before and really enjoyed," she added.
"These are normal between £5 and £10 each and I got this one for £3 in an Aldi SpecialBuy."
As well as another doll, Aylin also picked up a Barbie campervan from a boot sale for just £5.
"These retail for about £100 each," she said.
"It’s got all of the accessories with it. We’re just going to give it a clean up now before we wrap it up.
"She won’t mind that it’s second hand at all - she will absolutely love that."Read More on The SunTAKE A SEAT Woman captures 'sad' tourists sprinting to reserve hotel sun loungers at 9am
"Buying all year round definitely saves us money in the long run, so that’s what she’s got for her birthday this year," Aylin concluded.
Captioning her video, Aylin revealed she'd got the whole lot for £66.19, adding: "Buying all year round and buying second hand means they get more toys and we get more for our money so everyones happy."5The Barbie campervan in the picture cost just £5 from a boot sale, with the entire birthday haul costing just £66Credit: TikTok/@theeastmanfamily0
