Shailene Woodley confirmed that wedding bells will be ringing for her and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Appearing Monday on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," the 29-year-old actress discussed her recent engagement to Rodgers.

"Yes, we are engaged. But for us, it’s not new news," the "Divergent" star said.

Finding fans' reaction "funny," Woodley continued with a laugh, "Everybody right now is freaking out over it, but we’re like, 'Oh, we’ve been engaged for a while.'"

Woodley couldn't stop gushing about the love of her life, calling Rodgers "a wonderful, incredible human being." Woodley also coyly admitted she "never thought I’d be engaged with somebody who threw balls for a living."

Woodley also recounted how the two met.

"When I first met him, I think my dog, like, pulled me aside and was like, 'If you don’t date this dude, I will disown you as my mother because the three feet that I run with you when you throw a ball is nothing compared to the marathon I’m able to run with him,'" she deadpanned.

While Woodley didn't specify exact dates, she did hint that their relationship is relatively new, confessing, "We met during this wacky, wacky time and all the stadiums were closed that he was playing in, so I have yet to go to a football game."

Even though Rodgers is a successful athlete, she said she doesn't see him as "a football guy."

"I know him as, like, the nerd who wants to host 'Jeopardy!'" Woodley confessed. "That’s the dude I know."
