Shailene Woodley and fiance Aaron Rodgers have a ‘different, non-traditional relationship’ and are ‘very private about things’
Though they may be engaged, Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers prefer to keep the relationship on their own terms.
The Big Little Lies star, 30, and the Green Bay Packers quarterback, 38, reportedly have a ‘non-traditional’ relationship which includes being more ‘private’ about things than the average Hollywood couple.
‘They have a different, non-traditional relationship,’ a source told PEOPLE, but remained mostly mum on what makes their partnership so atypical.
Doing things their way: Shailene Woodley, 30, and fiance Aaron Rodgers, 38, reportedly have a ‘non-traditional’ relationship which includes being more ‘private’ about things than the average Hollywood couple
The duo — who independently confirmed their engagement in February 2020 — have continued to be very private with their relationship.
Most recently Rodgers seemed to celebrate his birthday on December 2 without his lady love by his side, and she did not acknowledge it on social media.
But despite no over the top social media tributes and scant public outings, the couple are reportedly very much ‘still together.’
‘Shailene and Aaron are still together,’ the source said. ‘It’s not odd they don’t post about each other on their birthdays in that sense, and are very private about things.’

Even the manner at which they went about announcing their engagement was anything but standard, as was their relationship forming during the unprecedented times of COVID-19.
Rodgers had coyly thanked his ‘fiancee’ while accepting the NFL MVP award in February, though he did not mention her by name.
PEOPLE was the first outlet to identify that the fiancee in question was indeed Woodley, and she later confirmed they had been ‘engaged for a while’ on a February 22 appearance with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.
‘Yes, we are engaged. But for us, it’s not new news, you know? 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,” she said while flashing a glimpse of her ring.
Couples outing: The pair are scantily spotted out together publicly but took a trip to Hawaii with Miles Teller and his wife Keleigh Sperry Teller in May where rare images of them were shared
She gave a rare interview about their relationship over the summer telling Shape Magazine that they ‘jumped in headfirst’ on account of the pandemic.
‘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.’
The Fault In Our Stars actress last publicly spoke out in defense of her NFL beau around the time Aaron admitted he had not been vaccinated against COVID-19 despite telling news outlets in August that he was ‘immunized.’
The pair were last spotted out together publicly in the spring as they enjoyed a trip to Disney World before vacationing in Hawaii with pals Miles Teller and his wife Keleigh Sperry just a month later.
