There are a thousand and one cool American footballers out there but only a handful of them are as entertaining and awesome as Aaron Rodgers. If his amazing records and incredible move from backup to quarterback position authenticates Rodgers’ skill and versatility, his peculiar touchdown celebration earns him the love and admiration of football fans across the globe.
It matters little if you are not a fan of Rodgers’ team, you will at least fancy the celebration which Rodgers and his teammates have come to regard as the “Championship Belt”. Anytime the footballer scores a rushing touchdown, he would make a gesture around his waist, moving his hands as though strapping a championship belt. A bit of wrestling, if you will.
Being a quarterback for the National Football League’s (NFL) Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers has remained the only quarterback in NFL history to record 100-plus passer rating in six consecutive seasons; from 2009 to 2016. As per the records, no other quarterback has been able to accomplish this feat for more than four seasons straight.
So far, only Rodgers has thrown 40-plus TD passes with seven or fewer INTs in a season. He attained this feat first in 2011 when he did 45/6 and again in 2016 (40/7). Owing to these, the California-born player has been named NFL’s Most Valuable Player on several occasions. this article, however, doesn’t focus on his feats on the field. We take you behind the curtains to show you the loverboy that he is. Let’s see.
Aaron Rodgers’ Background
Before we talk about his love life, let’s quickly dig into some back story about Rodger’s life. He was born—Aaron Charles Rodgers—on December 2, 1983, In Chico, Californi, the USA to parents Edward Wesley Rodgers and Darla Leig. His father is a Texas-born chiropractor who played as an offensive lineman for the football club, Chico State Wildcats, from 1973 to 1976.
While a kid, Aaron, alongside his two brothers, Luke and Jordan moved with his family to Ukiah where he attended elementary school. It is believed that his father encouraged him to become an athlete. He reportedly urged his sons to do whatever they could to make them better athletes than he was. That included abstaining from alcohol. The family later moved back to Chico where Aaron attended Pleasant Valley High School and eventually graduated in 2002. Like his older brother Jordan, Aaron was once a professional quarterback player. He last played for the BC Lions in the Canadian Football League and is now a sports commentator.
Since he began his official career in 2005, Aaron Rodgers has performed incredibly well. Enough to make him the recipient of several awards. For one, he has been awarded the ‘NFC Offensive Player of the Year’ award twice; in 2011 and 2014. He has also been awarded the ‘FedEx Air NFL Player of the Year’ award twice; in 2010 and 2014. More of his achievements include; the First player in the history of the NFL to pass for over 4000 yards in each of the first two seasons as starting quarterback, Best touchdown to interception ratio in the History of NFL (4.13), and Most Consecutive Games with at least three touchdown passes and no interceptions (4) and several more.
As Rodgers puts it, he wouldn’t have achieved these feats without the loyal support of the women in his life. Let’s see the beautiful women he has dated so far as well as the one he’s currently with.
A Complete List Of Aaron Rodgers’ Girlfriends
As of this writing, Aaron Rodgers has no wife and has never been married. Nevertheless, that doesn’t bring him any close to being gay, as many claim. As far as the records have it, Rodgers is straight and not sexually attracted to his gender. This is true irrespective of the fact that he has been outspoken about respecting the sexual orientation of others.
Below is a list of the women the star footballer dated in the past.
- Julie Henderson
Perhaps our earliest record of Aaron Rodgers’ love tango dates back to 2009. And it was with non-other than the model, Julie Henderson. Popular for her appearances in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, the beauty was said to have dated Rodgers from June to August 2009. This is Rodgers’ shortest relationship, second only to Scott’s.
- Erin Andrews
Sportscaster, Erin Andrews, and Aaron Rodgers have a love story not many people know. As of November 2010, it was alleged that the two were in a super-secret relationship. The reason for the secrecy, as sources say, is due to ESPN’s reluctance to have Andrews dating an NFL player. However, things went awry in their love boat in early 2011 as they split.
- Hillary Scott
The American singer reportedly dated Rodgers from April to June 2010. The backstory surrounding their fling remains in the shadows as neither parties have commented on it so far. What’s no news, however, is that the gospel singer has been married to Nashville-based drummer, Chris Tyrell, since 2012.
- Destiny Newton
Destiny Newton made headlines back in 2011 when her relationship with Aaron Rodgers went public. They were spotted having a nice time on the beaches of Hawaii. Though already buddies for almost a decade before that time, the two had chosen to take things a bit further while keeping it low. In fact, sources believe that the childhood friends were reportedly engaged, until 2013, when news of their split hit the air. The rumored reason was Rodgers’ gay status. However, the story fizzled as quickly as it came. Leaving us no reason to believe Rodgers is gay.
- Jessica Szohr
Jessica Szohr may have been a major reason for Rodgers’ split from Newton. As new records show, the Piranha 3D actress has been on and off with Rodgers since 2011. Things then took up speed in 2013 following his breakup with Newton. They remained lovers until 2014 when news of their break up went public.
- Olivia Munn
If anything, the star player was romantically linked with actress Olivia Munn in 2014. Munn is best known for her roles in the widely received TV series, The News Room (which ran from 2012 to 2014), and the film, Deliver Us From Evil (2014). Their relationship ended in 2017. Although the reasons are not known, it is believed that the couple couldn’t keep up with each other’s busy schedules and hence, called it off.
- Kelly Rohrbach
Though some sources believe that Rodgers and Baywatch actress, Kelly Rohrbach, go way back, they were only seen together in April 2017. Rohrbach had just gotten off a two-year-old relationship with Wolf of Wall Street star, Leonardo DiCaprio. It is not certain why the perfect couple had to go their separate ways, what’s no news, however, is that Rohrbach has since married Walton family hier, Steuart Walton, in 2019.
Who Is Rodgers Married To And Do They Have Kids?
In 2018, Rodgers was spotted with Danica Patrick, an American professional racer. They were on a trip together and were reported to be lovers. Before Rodgers, Patrick had been in a known relationship with fellow racer Ricky Stenhouse. Patrick had also left her first marriage to therapist Paul Hospenthal.
Earlier in 2019, Patrick set Instagram on fire after she posted a picture on the platform with her sister suggesting that she discussed and received advice about children. As you would imagine, this was quickly interpreted to mean that she is carrying Aaron’s child. However, after she saw how the content of the post was misinterpreted, she modified it and stated she wasn’t with child.
So far as we know, Rodgers and Danica Patrick are very much together. Nevertheless, there are no signs of wedding bells yet. No rings and no clues. When that gets public, we’ll surely put it up too. Until then, we hope this is where Rodgers finally finds love.
