The two eventually called it off after being engaged for nearly a year, with a separate insider telling E! News why it didn’t work out.
“They are two very different people,” the second source explained. “They are both focused on their careers but it took them in separate directions,” they said, adding, “They remain supportive of one another and on good terms.”
“She’s an incredible woman, talented, smart, kind,” he said. “She taught me what unconditional love looks like and that’s a great gift and having a partner like that makes life so much more enjoyable.”
Aaron explained, “I think that living a life of gratitude is so important and when you meet your person, life just changes and you can’t possibly be changed being around those special people.”
Shailene revealed on the Today show in July that she and Aaron were not in a hurry to make their marriage official.
She said on the talk show, “Honestly that’s not even a conversation we’ve had with the world today, we haven’t even talked about it.”
From Montreal to Kentucky, the pair spent their year-long engagement traveling throughout the world. The actress and the NFL player kept their relationship a secret at first, so it’s unknown when they started dating.
