Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers caused a stir in early December when he celebrated his 39th birthday.
Specifically, eagle-eyed fans noticed that among the people he was commemorating the occasion with was Milwaukee Bucks heiress, Mallory Edens.
Mallory is the daughter of Bucks owner, Wes Edens.
Although neither party commented on the situation at the time, new details have come to light this week.
According to Sports Gossip, Rodgers and Edens are now official.
“Well it has finally happened,” a source told the publication.
“Mallory Edens has had her eye on Aaron Rodgers for a very long time. Mallory has always wanted to be in the public eye. It looks like she might’ve found her ticket.
“Mallory was at the Packers last game, and she was supporting her new boyfriend and favorite team by wearing their gear. Nothing says I’m all in like throwing on your boyfriend’s teams’ gear.”
Thus far, neither party has come out and corroborated this report, but that is pair for the course. Rodgers didn’t even admit that he was engaged to Shailene Woodley until smoothly dropping that fact during his MVP acceptance speech.
Rodgers and Edens allegedly getting together also explains why his witch ex-girlfriend, Blu, posted such a salty social media message about him recently.
It goes without saying, but Rodgers has had a pretty crazy year on and off the field.
And then on the field, Rodgers had to suffer the indignity of a really slow start to the year where he looked absolutely cooked. Then, in the second half of the season, the Packers inexplicably found their footing and won four in a row.
Now they are one win away from locking up a playoff seed and entering the postseason with as much momentum as anyone in the league.

Rodgers is a fascinating personality, but he has always been able to balance football and the off-the-field distractions. In that spirit, he likely won’t pay too much mind to this Edens stuff until his season wraps.
This past week he debuted his new “Playoff Haircut” because he is all business right now.
Will 2023 prove to be the year that Rodgers claims that ever-elusive second Super Bowl title? An answer one way or the other will emerge at some point in the next two months.
